Philippe Cardon , Vice President of Sony Southern Europe, recently sat down and spoke with the fine folks over at the French publication Challenges. The interview (all in French, mind) touched on a few subjects; The Last Guardian, PS VR, Gran Turismo and PS4 Neo.
Cardon re-confirmed that The Last Guardian is one of this year’s biggest releases for PlayStation, as well as Gran Turismo and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. After the rumours that Guerrilla’s Horizon: Zero Dawn would be delayed until 2017, many fans had speculated that The Last Guardian would miss its 2016 release window, too. Thankfully that doesn’t seem to be the case as Cardon seems quite pleased in saying it’ll release this year. Awesome.
The executive was also asked if there’s any truth to the PS4 Neo rumours that have melted the internet over the last few weeks, though he didn’t confirm or deny anything. What he did say is that it’s natural for the company to look toward the future with regards to hardware and that it’s normal to think about the possibility of updating consoles.
It’s not hard to imagine that a new version of the PS4 will be released in the future – basically every PlayStation console has gone through some sort of revision that has seen a slimmer version release at some point, though the PS4 Neo would be the first to actually improve the innards of the original.
Chris has been writing about gaming news for far too long, and now he’s doing it even more. A true PlayStation know-it-all, Chris has owned just about every Sony console that ever existed. Trophies are like crack to this fella. (Bronze trophies, that is – he only has one Platinum.)
