September PlayStation Meeting press conference 2016: What to expect

Although we can't say for sure Sony will launch two new PlayStation consoles this week, that's what rumours suggest. The PlayStation 4 with 4K, codenamed Neo, and the PS4 Slim. The latter has been leaked in photos. Sony has also confirmed via its Korean site (translated) that there will be a new PS4, and the release date and price will be confirmed on 8 September, local time.

While the PS4 Slim will, as the name suggests, be a smaller version of the current console, it's the Neo which will interest most fans. Whether it's actually called the Neo remains to be seen – it's also been dubbed the PS4.5.

The PlayStation Neo is rumoured to be a 4K (Ultra HD resolution) console and not just for video playback such as Netflix like on the Xbox One S. It will support 4K gaming, making it the first console to offer the feature and better rival PCs.

It's also thought that the PlayStation VR will get a mention, too. The virtual reality headset has already been announced and is due to launch in October so will likely be available shortly after the new consoles.
