Playstation Project Neo to be released on Sept. 7, 2016

Playstation company is planning to launch a standard but slimmed down version of the PlayStation 4 alongside a special high-end version that’s been code-named Project Neo.

Both of the new consoles will be released at an event at the PlayStation theatre in New York on 7 September.
