Since we first reported on the possibility of the PS4.5 console from Sony, more and more evidence has to come light legitimising the claim. Since Kotaku originally broke the story with the knowledge of the system and its uses, Eurogamer then let us know that Sony have the prototypes in the lab right now.
The console is thought to provide PS4 players with a higher spec version of the system capable of running higher quality graphics, and strengthening the power behind PlayStation VR. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that “people familiar with the matter” have confirmed the upgraded system’s existence, and that the PS4.5 will be announced to the world before PlayStation VR hits in October.
The software is likely to be the same between the original PS4 and PS4.5 consoles, though the PS4.5 is likely to see upgraded content for PlayStation VR.
