By Timothy J. SeppalaSony apparently is also mandating higher performance from games to go with those new specs.
The PS4.5 rumors have gotten a bit juicier. The “NEO,” as it’s being referred to internally, features upgraded specs (an 8-core processor running at 2.1 GHz versus the standard model’s 1.6GHz, a stronger GPU and faster RAM) and 4K image output, according to documents obtained by Giant Bomb.

The update also marks the return of USB music playback, allowing you to easily listen to your own music — just plug in a stick and select.

At last, PS4 Remote Play is coming to your computer. Sony has confirmed that the console’s big 3.50 system update is arriving on April 6th with the game streaming feature intact, giving you a chance to play console titles from your PC or Mac. You can’t play beyond 720p (albeit at 60 frames per second if you like), and you’ll need to connect your DualShock 4 controller over USB, but this could still be a big relief if you can’t wait to play on your TV.
