Last week Kotaku broke news that Sony is in the process of working on a PlayStation 4.5. A more powerful console designed in preparation for 4k resolutions.
Here's a question: would you buy it?
In the wake of this news the response, as far as I can see, has been mostly negative. No company has ever really tried to sell consumers on an upgraded version of existing console hardware like this. It essentially requires buying a whole new console. Details are scant on how this whole thing will work, but it does feel a little strange and my instincts are telling me it's a bad idea.
That said — we live in a different time. People upgrade their phone on an annual basis — why not consoles?
What are your thoughts?
