Sony patent reveals PowerGlove-like VR gaming controller

Uncharted 4 trailer caught using Assassin’s Creed artwork, dev apologizes

Yesterday saw Sony and game developer Naughty Dog drop an impressive new story trailer for the upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. However, some eagle-eyed viewers noticed a piece of in-game artwork in the video that didn't belong. As in, it was artwork from a completely different game, by a different company, to be specific. A scene in the trailer showed a framed painting on the wall, which turned out to be a piece of concept art from Ubisoft's Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag.

Sony Xperia X hands-on: unabashedly replacing Z

Today we have a look at the Sony Xperia X, a replacement for the company's Xperia Z hero phone lineup. These Sony Xperia X and Sony Xperia X Performance smartphones take a unique approach - and one that makes a whole lot of sense. While companies more invested in the smartphone game need to reveal devices that are distinctly different from their predecessors, Sony is still small enough (in smartphones, anyway) to release a device that's just ever-so-slightly different from the one that came before it.

Sony Xperia XA might skip US, no X Performance for UK, Germany

At MWC 2016, Sony made a surprise announcement, revealing not one, not even two, but three new smartphones under a new Xperia X series. Naturally, there is no small amount of guessing, sometimes even wishing, which markets will get all three or at least even just one of the new devices.

The Xperia Ear, which launches is summer, is the first of this breed. But Sony has a couple more devices and ideas up its sleeves, including an Xperia Eye "lifelogging" camera, an Xperia Projector, and an Xperia Agent home assistant.

Sony's Xperia brand has been, for quite a few years now, synonymous with mobile devices. But smartphones, and especially tablets, are no longer the hottest craze in the market, something that Sony is feeling especially in its coffers.
