Microsoft will make a small upgrade to its Xbox One, but it’s not sure if the product is the “next-generation” Xbox Two console that everyone is talking about, or it’s just the current Xbox One with minor improvements. Apparently, Sony is thinking about doing the same thing, and it Kotaku’s information is correct, then the Japanese giant is working on a console called PlayStation 4.5, which is either an upgrade for the PS4, or a totally new console which, until now, it was rumored that it will be named PS 5.

Sony has refused to comment on the rumors and speculations that circulate around this product, and since the company hasn’t declined these rumors, it means that the video game-focused blog Kotaku has a reliable source and the information is correct. But there’s no report containing more details about the technical specs of the upcoming product, but we can expect a slimmer design or integrated wireless, alongside improved graphics and faster processing capabilities.

On the other hand, the owners of the PS 4 won’t be too happy about the idea to spend another $400 on the new console in order to be able to play the same games, but adapted to the new components. It’s very unlikely for Sony to release the PS 4.5 in the near future, and, in our opinion, the sales won’t go too well if the console won’t bring the desired upgrades. The only way the players would accept this deal is by trading in their PS 4 or Xbox One consoles and spend only $200 on this rumored device.

We remind you that the PS 4 was released in November 2013 and until January 2016, there have been sold 35.9 million units. The console is powered by a semi-custom 8-core AMD x86-64 Jaguar 1.6 GHz processor, which is integrated into APU and it has a secondary low power processor for background tasks. The processor is backed by a semi-custom AMD GCN Radeon GPU integrated into APU and 8GB GDDR5 and the hard drive is available in two variants of capacities: 500 GB, 1 TB.
