Shortly after Microsoft released a 1TB Xbox One with new controller, Sony has announced a 1TB version of its PlayStation 4.
Sony's Ultimate Player Edition console is expected on July 15 in Europe, Asia, and Africa. With twice as much storage as the existing PS4, the 1TB version lets users download more games and add-on content, play with higher graphics resolutions, and save and share more personal highlights. Pricing will be determined by local retailers.
As Engadget noted, meanwhile, the 500GB version is now 10 percent lighter and 8 percent more power efficient.
Earlier this month, PCMag sister site Geek.com reported about an FCC filing for a 1TB PS4, which suggests the console might also launch stateside.
If you're in the market for a PS4, but don't need all that extra space, Sony's limited-edition Metal Gear Solid V-themed machine and the game hits Europe, Australia, and New Zealand on Sept. 1.
The company also released an update to its PlayStation app for iOS and Android, with improved PS Store browsing.
While Sony waited until after E3 to announce its upgraded console, rival Microsoft unveiled its own $400 1TB Xbox One ahead of the show, and talked it up onstage in Los Angeles. Shipping in the U.S. since June 16, the console comes with a newly designed wireless controller with 3.5mm stereo headset jack. Redmond also "fine-tuned" the accessory and enabled wireless firmware updates, eliminating the need for a USB connection to upgrade.
