PS4 Neo is Going After the Biggest Gaming Platform in the World, Not Project Scorpio

Sony revealed its long rumored PS4 Neo during PlayStation Meeting. The console brings us 4K gaming with HDR support. Sony is releasing an update that will enable HDR across all PS4 units in the market. And PS4 Pro will also offer better performance in VR games.

The console has been compared with Project Scorpio since day one and how it lacks in terms of specs. Both are going head to head in the 4K console gaming space but Sony is not very interested in competing with Microsoft’s Project Scorpio. The company is actually going after the biggest gaming platform in the world, PC.

According to Andrew House, the motivation and inspiration behind PlayStation 4 Neo were some stats he saw. The data showed that many gamers moved to PCs during mid console cycle in hopes of a better graphical experience, which of course, can only be had on PC if you really like to push things to the limit.

That’s when Sony decided to go after the PC market and entice gamers with a visually enhanced gaming experience.

I saw some data that really influenced me. It suggested that there’s a dip mid-console life cycle where the players who want the very best graphical experience will start to migrate to PC, because that’s obviously where it’s to be had. We wanted to keep those people within our ecosystem by giving them the very best and very highest [performance quality]. So the net result of those thoughts was PlayStation 4 Pro—and, by and large, a graphical approach to game improvement.

It is a very interesting approach one that would surely entice plenty of gamers to stick with PlayStation. Moreover, a 4K gaming experience for $399 is a steal.

Even if Sony fails to attract PC gamers, it is giving consoles gamers a solid reason to stick with PlayStation.
