PS4K PS4 PlayStation 4 Hardware 1

As rumoured, there will be no "exclusive" games for the supercharged PlayStation 4K; all PS4 games will continue to run on the existing model. Group president Andrew House reassured fans in a Financial Times article today, confirming the existence of the upgraded console. "All games will support the standard PS4 and we anticipate all or a very large majority of games will also support the high-end PS4," he said.

Of course, this may not allay concerns that games will run "poorly" on the original unit when optimised for the enhanced device, but the manufacturer has confirmed that the new console will be sold alongside the existing model throughout the lifecycle of the product, suggesting that the platform holder still sees the original unit as important. This should be reassuring to those not looking to upgrade.

The question, then, is: who is the new model for? Sony says that it will target "hardcore gamers" and those with 4K televisions looking for high resolution content.
