Sony has yet to unveil an official photo of the PlayStation Neo. A facelift is no doubt in order, but tech pundits believe that it won’t be a drastic change over the PS4’s design. In addition, fans should not expect new accessories.

Trusted Reviews speculated that Sony will likely maintain consistency between the PS4 and PS Neo. Existing controllers and accessories on PS4 should be usable on PS Neo.

As for the Xbox One S, it is sleeker and 40 percent smaller than the Xbox One. Microsoft’s latest console can stand on its side. The power button is now a physical button, unlike the touch-panel setup of the Xbox One.

The PlayStation Neo will reportedly cost more than the PS4’s original price of $400. The 2TB variant of the Xbox One S is now available for $400.
