The PlayStation 4 is a very powerful console. It is right up there with the Xbox One. However it looks like Sony isn’t completely against the idea of making a “high performance” model of the PlayStation 4. Imagine this console even more powerful than it is now. Now that doesn’t mean that the company is going to make one tomorrow. It just means that they are not entirely opposed to the idea and it sees some benefit in going down that road one day. Maybe.
We know this because Sony Computer Entertainment senior vice president Masayasu Ito was asked in a recent interview whether Sony would be open to creating a PlayStation 4 in the future that would offer even better performance. Ito pointed out that since the PlayStation 4 is based on the x86 architecture it is possible to make improvements to the console’s processor in the near future, but he did emphasise that Sony currently has no plans to introduce a PS4 model that offers improved performance. Ito says that the biggest question here is that whether it would make sense for Sony to do this at all. So if it makes sense, it could well happen.
PlayStation 4 has been doing great in the market, it clinched the lead over Xbox One soon after both consoles were released in 2013 and with the newly announced price cut it’s likely that sales will continue to pick up over the coming holiday season.
