PlayStation Neo won't shorten the lifecycle of PlayStation 4

This revised and improved version of the game console will not change the useful life of the previous one.

Shuhei Yoshida, the boss of Sony Worldwide Studios, has chatted in an interview with the GamesWelt portal about the future of PlayStation 4 now that we positively know that in not too long there will be a PlayStation Neo on the market with much more powerful hardware.

"PlayStation 4 is PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Neo is still a PS4", answered Yoshida when asked if this maneuver would shorten the life cycle of current hardware."No, the life cycle of current hardware will not be shorter."

These words reaffirm the position of Andrew House, another of the executives of the Japanese company, who a few weeks ago assured that "they will sell both models of the console during the entire cycle of machines."
