Sony already confirmed the news regarding the creation of the PlayStation 4 Neo ahead of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016. The company revealed that the move is to try and avoid game aficionados from being upset with the absence of the newest console at the annual game event.

PlayStation 4 Neo's Absence At E3 2016

PlayStation President Andrew House told The Guardian in an interview that the PlayStation 4 Neo is not fully done yet for it to be seen by the public, as per PlayStation LifeStyle.

They are eyeing to reveal PlayStation 4 Neo when its new hardware is complete along with its new features that game aficionados can experience.

"The point of confirming the existence of PlayStation 4 Neo and the bare bones of the plan last week was about not disappointing the fan base," Andrew House said. "[...] who would obviously come to E3 with high expectations of all kinds of announcements."

PlayStation 4 Neo To Keep People From Seeking High-End PCs

Andrew House also explained that PlayStation 4 Neo is made to keep the fans from seeking high-end PCs as another game platform.

He further clarified that most people are looking for "finest graphical performance," which can be found on PC. Hence, PlayStation 4 is a lure to make gamers stay loyal to video game consoles.

Not only that, but Sony's PlayStation division also wants to give 4K TV users a home video game that can keep up with the device's performance.

Andrew House elucidated that 4K televisions have little content, and so the PlayStation 4 Neo will be made to fill that spot. "Those are the fundamentals of Neo," he added.

Sony The Best Show At E3 2016

PlayStation concentrated by revealing its new games by satisfying the game aficionados with trailers, classic remakes, release dates and confirmation of the most anticipated titles.

Also, Sony and PlayStation use the event to introduce its new VR headset, which is about to be officially released on Oct. 13 for $399, as per CNBC.
