You've probably heard the rumors about a more powerful version of the Xbox One.
Now, here's another supposedly substantiated rumor that talks about a more powerful PlayStation 4.
As reported by Kotaku , Sony is preparing a more capable version of their flagship games console: It will boast increased graphical capabilities, which means games could run in 4K resolution. It seems several developers told Kotaku about this improved system, though it isn't known if current owners will simply be able to upgrade their hardware or if Sony would produce an entirely new console. This "PS4.5" supposedly features an upgraded GPU that will also help to enhance games for PlayStation VR.
Though Kotaku couldn't name any of its sourcse, they claim they were able to confirm this news with "at least four separate sources." Maybe it makes sense: We've had TVs that can produce 4K for a while but no games can manage that, and no game systems, either. In order for current gaming hardware to catch up, perhaps this new, more powerful PS4 is a necessity…?
Question is, would you buy one if it came out? More importantly, would you feel obligated to buy one?
