Sony will hold an event at September 7th to “share details about the PlayStation business”. That day, the brand should unveil PS4 Neo to the public and we will check if rumors come true or not about the whole info leaked for Neo.
In relation with this matter, Sony could modify PS4 Neo initial specs to reduce the leap with Scorpio, the new piece of hardware produced by Microsoft. Patrick Klepek from Vice Gaming, has mentioned in a Periscope conversation that Sony could increase the power in Neo. Apparently, these intentions were managed internally by Sony.
This is not a confirmation, but at least, Sony has evaluated that possibility. Sony would distribute Neo’s final dev kits around the September 7th reveal.
