A few weeks ago, rumors hit the Internet that claimed Sony was developing a "PlayStation 4.5" game console with updated graphics hardware and support for 4K televisions. During an interview at Build 2016, Microsoft's Xbox head Phil Spencer seemed to offer a gentle slam of those reports.
According to GameInformer, Spencer stated:
"I'm not a big fan of Xbox One and a half. If we're going to move forward, I want to move forward in big numbers," Spencer said. "I don't know anything about any of the rumors that are out there, but I can understand other teams' motivations to do that. For us, our box is doing well. It performs, it's reliable, the servers are doing well. If we're going to go forward with anything, like I said, I want it to be a really substantial change for people – an upgrade."
Spencer hinted earlier this year that the Xbox One might get some hardware upgrades but later backtracked a bit on those statements, saying he didn't want Microsoft "to ship a screwdriver set with every console that comes out."
