Early this morning, Sony has officially confirmed in an interview with Financial Times that an upgraded PlayStation 4 with 4K support is coming soon. This new upgraded PS4 was first leaked by Kotaku; the PS4’s codename is Neo.
PlayStation Group CEO Andrew House confirmed the news stating that it will be a “high-end PS4” that will be sold alongside the current PlayStation 4.
“It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4,” he said. “We will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle.”
With this being said, it appears the upgraded PS4 will be more expensive than the current $350 price point.
Sony also revealed that the new PS4 will not be shown at E3 next week; the company stated that they wanted to make sure they have enough high-range games that support the upgraded PS4 before they announce.
We want to ensure we have a full range of the best experiences on the new system that we can showcase in their entirety,” he said.
But Sony also made it clear that all games coming to PlayStation 4 will support both the current PS4 and the upgraded PS4.
This news was leaked by Kotaku and GiantBomb in March. They stated that games will have to support both an upgraded 4K resolution, alongside supporting the current PS4 resolution. Developers would have to enable a specific 4K mode for the PlayStation 4 Neo.
Microsoft is expected to announce a new Xbox One Slim console, which is reported to be 40% smaller than the current Xbox One, at E3. The Xbox One slim is rumored to also be cheaper than the current $349 price point. In addition, additional Xbox One devices are expected at E3. We’ll update if Microsoft does announce new consoles on June 13.

Fortnite Season 5 bug gives players free wins with Invisibility
The quicksand feature in Fortnite Season 5 has an exploit that players are using to enter God Mode and become invisible.
Fortnite Season 5 has got a game-breaking bug where players can use the new Quicksand feature to enter a God mode state – giving them free wins.
It’s not unusual for a game’s latest update to come with a few bugs. We’ve seen it happen with nearly every major franchise and Fortnite is no different. Epic Games introduced a quicksand feature in Season 5, Chapter 2 and players are taking advantage of it right away.
The mechanic is meant to offer you a way to hide from enemies while you plan your attack. It comes with the extra boost of increased movement speed, so you can use the sand to travel much faster too. The quicksand has a lot in common with props from Season 10 in Chapter 1, but it’s not without its problems.
Turns out the new movement mechanic has a bug that you can exploit to enter a God mode state.
The glitch has made it so that you can use the sand to become invisible as well as completely invulnerable, so users can easily wrack up wins by utilizing the exploit.

Plenty of players have run into the issue since Chapter 2, Season got underway – including Fortnite data miner iFireMonkey who showed off a clip of just how infuriating it can be to come up against someone who is glitched out.
This glitch is clearly game-breaking, so, Epic Games will need to roll out a patch for it as quick as possible. At the moment, though, the quicksand bug isn’t listed on the Fortnite Trello Board, so it’s likely that they haven’t caught onto the problem yet. The entire mechanic might get taken out of commission for a bit if a fix isn’t found soon.
It’s unclear whether or not there’s a specific method to follow before you can enter God mode. Until we hear from the developers about this, we’ll keep looking into the matter to see what else we can find out about the bug.

Xbox Series X players can play PS2 games on their console
Xbox owners have discovered a way to play PS2 games on the new series S and X.
Xbox players have discovered they can run PS2 games on the new consoles with emulators.
Shortly after the release of the Xbox series S and X, players have discovered that using the developer mode on the new Xbox game consoles opens a whole new world of variety for games.
In a video posted by YouTuber “Modern Vintage Gamer” he showcases the retroarch emulator being used on Xbox hardware, which allows PS2 ROMS to run.
Since the software for the console is fairly new, Modern Vintage Gamer ran into a few hitches when setting up the retroarch emulator, and almost completely gave up. It took a few work arounds, but once he got it up and running, the emulator showed promise.
Some games like Silent Hill 2 and Maximo ran great, with only minor lag and frame rate dips, while titles like Gran Turismo 2 were almost unplayable with low frame rates and audio hitching.
Overall, many of the titles looked beautiful on modern hardware. Since the Xbox Series S and X are newer systems, this is a great foundation for the emulator to build from and further optimize for the future.
Since Modern Vintage Gamer tested the games on the weaker Xbox Series S, its still possible the Xbox Series X would have ran the games a bit better, but its unlikely games that were unplayable would be any better on the more powerful console due the optimization of the retroarch emulator.
This very well could be the beginning of a future of several emulators coming to the Xbox for various consoles.
The emulator is only available for use in developer mode for Xbox, which costs $20 to unlock. While in developer mode, you will not be able to use the online features of the console. It might be possible to run this emulator in the retail mode for the Xbox, but Modern Vintage Gamer warns the legality of this is not clear.
