Despite the talk of the PlayStation 4 becoming something of a graphics powerhouse, a new report suggests the importance of internal upgrades will be tossed aside in favor of “new playing options.” Sony plans to make a host of “new playing options” in its next console the focus of the device when it’s unveiled on February 20, Japan-based news outlet Nikkei is reporting today, citing an unidentified Sony Computer Entertainment official. Engadget was first to report on the Nikkei’s findings. Rumors have suggested that Sony will unveil a major upgrade to its PlayStation 3. Those rumors have said that the company could include an eight-core AMD processor and other major hardware updates. However, the Nikkei’s report, according to Engadget, seems to suggest that if Sony delivers new higher-powered components in its next device, they’ll take a backseat to the playing options.
