Internal power brick, UHD support if you have a 4K tv, and a very slight bump in performance in games. Red Dead Redemption on the S actually holds performance better than the base Xbox One, it has been great.
True, though the circumstances surrounding PS3 meant you could at least sympathise with the evident cost cutting, even the smaller things like the removal of the little iconic rotatable coloured PS Logo, and Chrome disc drive from the PS3 Fat (the 40GB and 80GB models no longer had the chrome trim but a plastic finish).
I guess investors need to be pleased. Nintendo cheapened up the Wii with a version that didn't stand vertically and had no GC ports because of the strengthening Yen, for example. But it's still a shame that we no longer have an industrial design to truly appreciate.
Neo being a "high-end PS4" should mean something more special at least!
Looks alright I guess, though I wonder even more how the Neo will look. And if this is releasing soon, could we also expect the Neo to launch this year as well as had previously indicated? Or could that plan have changed?
This is real. It's a cut-price, cookie-cutter revision to sell to masses at a cheap price and with cheap production values for more profit. People who are claiming it is ugly and that there is no reason to buy one are missing the point entirely. Sony doesn't want current PS4 owners to buy this. They want them to buy a Neo.
This model are for those people who consider the Apple TV enough games console for them. It's the exact opposite of what Microsoft is trying to do, which is win back the hardcore they lost to PS4.
Anyone who doesn't see the potential to sell this especially with PSVR is a moron. Simple.
This is the beginning of Sony's attempt to regain the PlayStation casual market. The Neo is for the hardcore.
