Andrew House, the president and global chief executive of Sony’s gaming business, has said that the rumored new system will be sold alongside the existing PS4 machines. He also said that all games will continue to support the standard PS4 console and that a very large majority of games will also support the high-end PS4.

House also added that all games released on the PS4 consoles will run on both the older model and the new one. But for all of the hype and buzz surrounding the Neo machine, Sony remained tight-lipped about the rumored story.

Sony has no plans yet to unveil the rumored PS4 “Neo” console next week at the big game trading show E3.

Rumors of a more powerful version of the PS4 being in development started to circulate in March. The company said that the new PS4 will also cost more than the current console, which starts at $350. However, Sony has declined to give any information about pricing or release date at this time.

In addition, Sony’s main competitor in the console market, Microsoft, has been rumored to be showing off its own new hardware at the Monday press briefing. Reports said that Microsoft Xbox One “Scorpio” will have a whopping 6 teraflops of pure power performance compared to the rumoured 4.14 teraflops of Sony PS4 Neo.
