Sony Interactive Entertainment head Andrew House confirmed the existence of the rumoured Neo machine, a new version of the PlayStation 4 that will be able to handle 4K TV resolutions.

But he said in an interview with the target="_blank"> (subscription required) that Neo will not be revealed at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), the big game trade show that starts on Sunday.

House is the president and global chief executive of Sony's game business. He said the new system will be sold alongside the existing PS4 during the current generation of machines.

“It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4,” he said. “We will be selling both through the life cycle.”

House confirmed that all games released on the PS4 will run on both the older model and the new one.

He didn't offer a price, a release date, or announcement date. Microsoft is rumoured to be announcing its own new hardware at its press conference on Monday.
