Far Cry Primal trailer reveals mammoth-sized action

After a brief teaser period Ubisoft has revealed the next Far Cry series franchise jump-off point: Far Cry Primal. This game takes what the Far Cry series has been about thus far - high-end physics, animal interaction, weapons, and excitement, and packs it in to the ancient land of the Stone Age. You are the "last survivor of your hunting group," and will battle saber-toothed tigers, mammoths, and everything in-between to "conquer the land of Oros and become the Apex Predator."

Sony on Xperia Z5 Premium: not much 4K content anyway

Sony on Xperia Z5 Premium: not much 4K content anyway

Despite the practically same old design, Sony might have finally hit some of the right notes with the Xperia Z5, especially after DxOMark crowned it king of the mobile photography hill. The Xperia Z5 Premium, on the other hand, despite boasting the world's first 4K smartphone display, is proving to be a harder sell. After being discovered to be using only 1080p for most of its operations, something it conveniently failed to mention at first, Sony is now trying to come clean about the how 4K is really being used on the high-end smartphone.

Sony Xperia Z5 is now the top dog in DxOMark’s chart

It seems that Sony's hard work has finally paid off, at least in one aspect of its mobile devices. While Sony proudly shared that its Xperia Z5 was found by some random user tests to have the best camera in town, now we're hearing it straight from the professionals. And by professionals, we mean photography benchmarking website DxOMark, who has just awarded Sony's flagship the top score in its evaluation, finally unseating Samsung from the top spot and perhaps inspiring a bit of confidence in the future of Sony's mobile business.

HITMAN delayed until March

HITMAN delayed until March

While the next HITMAN game was until recently set for release on December 8th, it's been delayed. The creators of the game at Io-Interactive suggest that this game is the "biggest venture [they've] ever undertaken" and that the playable area and density of the game is beyond any game they've created before. This release date change is suggested to be allowing for more content to be added to the game's initial content set. The creators will then "follow with a tighter frequency of updates" than they'd originally planned.

Sony’s new waterproof advisory: all for being sensible

Sony’s new waterproof advisory: all for being sensible

Shortly after it had announced the Xperia Z5 and its two siblings, even before the device could land in anyone's hands, Sony made some changes to its guidance for the water and dust proof performance of its devices. And it made the changes rather silently, almost secretly. Whereas it boasted about the underwater feats that its devices could achieve, it has now filled the page with warnings, even discouraging taking pictures while submerged in water. Now the Japanese OEM is explaining why it made those changes. Well, somewhat explaining.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium uses 4K only in media, 1080p elsewhere

Sony might have struck gold when it announced the Xperia Z5 Premium, the world's first ever 4K smartphone, which also makes it the world's smallest 4K display, However, that adage about not judging books by covers might very well apply to screen resolutions as well. While the manufacturing feat of fitting a 4K display inside a 5.5 screen space is definitely laudable, its benefits apparently aren't as much. Sony has just confirmed that the smartphone only uses that 4K resolution when viewing images and videos.
