Citing sources “familiar with the matter,” the report alleges that the two new consoles will be introduced in a bid to “maintain demand” for the PlayStation 4.
The timing lines up with the PlayStation event Sony has scheduled for September 7 at 3PM ET. The presentation will be held at PlayStation Theater in New York, although the company has not disclosed what exactly it will be showing. This new information lines up with previous reports that the a new PS4 model would be revealed at a PlayStation 4 event in September.
