In the resolution wars that continue to rage today between Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One, there’s been some controversy about the top-end abilities of both machines. Games like Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes run at 720p native on Xbox One while the PlayStation 4 version of the game is able to natively run the game at 1080. Today it’s been made apparent that the PS4 launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall doesn’t always run as high-definition as Sony has claimed.
The most pixel-filled adventure of a one-player game ever produced by the folks at Polytron is nearly ready for PlayStation 4, PS3, and PS Vita. With a March 25th release date, we’re ready for this Blitworks-ported title to come on quick. It’s been a long time in the making, after all, the game’s original launch occurring well over a year ago.
Following Sony's announcement that it will be closing down most of its retail stores, word has surfaced by way of The Wall Street Journal that the company plans to sell off its former Tokyo headquarters, a bid that falls in line with its other recent business moves -- to aid its currently struggling finances.
Today in a press announcement, Sony revealed plans to restructure its business, something it is doing in an effort to keep its "competitiveness" in what it calls an evolving electronics market. The move is bad news for some of its employees, namely those working at the majority of its Sony Stores, which are slated to be shut down.
Some unofficial numbers on Sony's PlayStation 4 sales in Japan have surfaced by way of the Japanese website Famitsu, which says in excess of 320,000 of the next-generation consoles sold in the first two days of its availability in the nation. If accurate, the console has vastly outnumbered the number of PS3 sales that took place in the same two-day span.
"Log your day, every day" Sony says, hoping that it's the SmartBand SWR10 you choose to do that with, not just a pen and paper. The company's new wearable was previewed back at CES last month but the company saved the details for Mobile World Congress, outlining how the Bluetooth-connected dongle - and, eventually, a Smart Lifelog Camera companion - could not only do the work of a fitness tracker but integrate in every facet of your life. We grabbed some hands-on time to find out more.
With the Sony Xperia Z family of devices seeing such success over the past year, it’s no wonder the company decided to delivery a new mid-range entrant this season. With the Sony Xperia M2, Sony brings on what they suggest is the thinnest 4G smartphone in its category. It does indeed seem to deliver a premium experience in a package that won’t break the bank, no record-breaking necessary.
This week we’re having a peek at Sony’s latest effort with the rebooted Z, a device called the Sony Xperia Z2. This device rolls out with a 5.2-inch Full HD display - that’s 1080 x 1920 pixels, with Sony’s Live Color LED powered by X-Reality for mobile technology. This device looks and feels just like the Sony Xperia Z or the Sony Xperia Z1, and if you blink you’d mistake it for one of these previous models - but the devil’s in the details.
