PlayStation 4's life cycle won't be shorten as a result of the PlayStation 4 Neo, said Sony Interactive Entertainment's president Shuhei Yoshida.
In an interview with Gamewelt.TV, Yoshida said that Neo will complement the PS4 since the new console is still a PS4. "PS4 is PS4," Yoshida said. "[The] new high-end PS4 is still PS4, so the lifecycle is not going to be shorter."
Although Sony has confirmed that it's working on a new more powerfull version of the PS4, the console wasn't shown at E3. While Sony continues to follow this policy of not revealing any details about the PS4 Neo, Yoshida admits that he was surprised about Microsoft's Project Scorpio announcement. "I was not expecting them to talk about [Project Scorpio]. It's very very super interesting what they are doing."
Sony has yet to reveal a release window for PlayStation 4 Neo. Meanwhile, Microsoft's Project Scorpio will launch in late 2017.
