It's Possible To Release A Higher-Powered Version Of PS4
Consoles continue to become more like PCs; perhaps the next step would be to offer the same console with varying capabilities.
According to what Sony Computer Entertainment senior vice president Masayasu Ito told Japanese publication 4Gamer (as translated by DualShockers), a "high-perfomance" PlayStation 4 model is actually a possibility.
Ito said that because the current PS4 machine uses X86 architecture (unlike the PS3's Cell processor), it's feasible that improvements could be made over time. However, Sony has no plans to do this right now, and wonders if they'll ever want do it, as it could fragment the console audience. The system continues to sell well around the world so perhaps there's no reason to mess around with the formula.
The other question would, of course, involve the price. How much more would the system cost and would it actually entice new consumers and fans? Would that group make the extra investment for Sony worthwhile?
What do you think?
