Watch Predator’s Mortal Kombat X release with Carl Weathers

Watch the Predator tear Jason apart in Mortal Kombat X - because there's no better way to spend your afternoon. What you're about to see is not only the release of the Predator character for Mortal Kombat X on all platforms, but the reveal of Carl Weathers as Jax. Weathers took the role of beefy fighter in the first Predator film - now he's back to do damage as everyone's favorite metallic basher. Here you'll see the fight you've been waiting for - unless you'd rather Jesse "The Body" Ventura be released. We'll keep crossing our fingers for that one.

Xperia Z5 this September might finally be worthy of the name

Xperia Z5 this September might finally be worthy of the name

The Xperia Z4 can perhaps be considered a blotch on Sony's troubled mobile reputation. It was an incremental upgrade at best and an overheating catastrophe at worst. Even Sony implicitly acknowledges it's only a small step forward, naming it the Xperia Z3+ outside of Japan. While very little can be done to salvage the Xperia Z4, Sony's redemption might come from an Xperia Z5 slated to arrive this September. And based on some recent rumors, this one might actually be worthy of being called a flagship smartphone.

This hybrid Sony-Nintendo PlayStation prototype began a war

This hybrid Sony-Nintendo PlayStation prototype began a war

As gaming collaborations go, Nintendo and Sony might seem unlikely bedfellows, but the discovery of one super-rare console proves it wasn't always that way. The Nintendo PlayStation was to be a grand coming-together of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and a CD component built by Sony for a new type of SNES CD game. The deal eventually soured, and Sony went its own way on the PlayStation project, but not before a small number of prototypes were constructed.

Sony MHC-V7D speaker shows off sound you can see in new video

Sony MHC-V7D speaker shows off sound you can see in new video

It's hard to show off just how powerful a speaker can be if you aren't there in person to hear the speaker play. Sony is trying to show off its new MHC-V7D speaker on video and to do so it has poured red, blue, and yellow paint into the speaker cone surface and then cranked the tunes. The sound pressure from the track being played, something called Hideaway, makes the paint leap off the speaker.

Uncharted 4 extended gameplay trailer launched post-E3

Uncharted 4 extended gameplay trailer launched post-E3

What you're about to see is a gameplay trailer from the PlayStation 4 version of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. This trailer is for a game that'll be released inside the year 2016 for PlayStation 4. The big deal here - if you're not already convinced to watch it yourself and have your eyes blown out of their sockets - is that the game looks extraordinarily good for a console title. The transition between the cutscene at the start and the gameplay is enough to toss us reeling.

Sony launches own crowdfunding platform “First Flight”

Sony launches own crowdfunding platform “First Flight”

Although Sony is still a big name in the industry, it no longer has the same force it had back in the days. It sold off its VAIO PC business to shed some unnecessary weight and it seems that its mobile devices might soon be on the way out as well. On the other hand, it also needs new businesses and products to keep it afloat, but a risk-averse culture and financial considerations keep it from jumping into more adventurous pursuits. The solution? A crowdfunding platform that encourages experimentation but, at the same time, shields it somewhat from failure.

Sony Xperia Z3+ camera might be its own saving grace

Sony Xperia Z3+ camera might be its own saving grace

Sony may have had a misstep with the Xperia Z4/Xperia Z3+ when it came to the choice of a Snapdragon 810 processor, but it is almost inconceivable that it would mess up the camera sensor, one of the key businesses of the company. Sony might have just proven it still got chops in that field. Digital photography benchmarking site DxOMark has just published their report on the latest Sony "flagship" and, as expected, it fares fairly well. Though not enough to become the new king of the hill.

Sony E5663 could be the Xperia Z4 Compact

Sony E5663 could be the Xperia Z4 Compact

It is hard to fathom Sony's mind these days, which makes it difficult to discern its gameplay when mobile devices are involved. The Xperia Z4/Z3+ was, to put it mildly, somewhat of a disappointment. It seems, however, that the Japanese manufacturer might have a device that could offset that blunder. A certain E5663 has appeared in GFXBench's listings and though it might be intended to launch in India, at least initially, signs point to what could possibly a noteworthy successor to the Xperia Z3 Compact pictured above.

Is Sony poisoning the Kickstarter well?

Is Sony poisoning the Kickstarter well?

Kickstarter has made dreams come true, whether it be some maker's dream product or a backer's dream game. But the promise of crowdfunding isn't completely foolproof, and Kickstarter has seen its fair share of people trying to take advantage of loopholes and fine prints, like this latest issue surrounding Shenmue 3. It was revealed that Sony was somewhat "supporting" the game's production, ruffling a few feathers and raising some questions. Has Sony found a way to game the Kickstarter system or is it completely within bounds? Or has Sony set a pattern that could potentially ruin Kickstarter for indies and smaller groupus?

Captain America: Civil War will feature Spider-man

Captain America: Civil War will feature Spider-man

Marvel fans, rejoice: it has been officially confirmed that Spider-man will be included in Captain America: Civil War. It was Marvel’s Kevin Feige who revealed the Spider-man crossover, saying in an interview that the actor behind the new Spider-man, Tom Holland, will be heading off for the Captain America set "immediately". Why? Because the newest Spider-man will be making his first appearance in that movie ahead of his own upcoming theatrical release. Captain America: Civil War will be arriving next summer.

Driveclub PlayStation Plus Edition arrives tomorrow

Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida announced that Driveclub PlayStation Plus Edition will be arriving tomorrow, something promised to follow “a long time” spent preparing for the launch. The offline availability will launch tomorrow, and the online functionality will start rolling out. This follows a very long wait for the game, a wait that is going to be joined by a healthy dose of caution. Sony is careful to reassure gamers that a lot of effort has gone into getting things going without any issues…though that, of course, is yet to be seen.

Shenmue 3 actually needs $10M to truly have an open world

Shenmue 3 actually needs $10M to truly have an open world

One of the factors that made Shenmue such a hit back in 1999, aside from its story, of course, was it was one of the very few to advocate and open world gameplay, something that we may be taking for granted these days. So imagine the surprise, and probably some disappointment, when creator Yu Suzuki, answering questions in a Reddit AMA thread, revealed that the dream of a truly open Shenmue world can only be realized if the campaign's fund reaches the $10 million mark.
