Sony and MS Set for New Console War?

Sony and Microsoft look set to be gearing up for a new console war with their latest versions of the PS4 and Xbox One. A new listing suggests the tech giant is working on releasing an Xbox One console with a 1TB internal hard drive, which could mean two new models announced at E3 in June.

The release of new PS4 and Xbox One models was predicted by Netflix chief product officer Neil Hunt earlier this year, who went as far as to say that 4K support could soon be added by Sony.

The price of the new model is set at $400 and has a release date listed for June 15.

It could mean the new model will be launched straight after its announcement at E3, something Microsoft have done with revamped Xbox’s in the past. The new console will also come with the revamped Xbox One controller that was leaked earlier this year. A new version appeared on Xbox’s support page, featuring a new 3.5mm headphone port at its base.

The description set with the new device confirmed that this feature is “only available on controllers released after June 2015.”

However, Sony don’t look like they will be caught by the news of their rival’s revised console. A 1TB model PS4 was also spotted by gamers in May. Sony are apparently working on a new version of their console that will be lighter (from 2.8 Kg to 2.5 Kg) and see a drop in ampere. It would appear much of the changes will be internal and technical, rather than a redesigned slim-style model we’ve seen in the past.

The changes were spotted after the Federal Communications Commission published the certification documents for a new PS4 models, including a variant which does not include the 1TB storage. The are numbered CUH-1215A and CUH-1215B, and could see a change of tactics from Sony after E3, where it seems likely the new models will be shown.
