PlayStation 4.5 NEO might actually launch in September

Gamers, it's time to put your thinking hats on again. Or if you're from the Xbox One camp, you might start snickering again. The latest word to come out of the rumor mill is that Sony's "and a half" console upgrade might be coming earlier than expected. While most bets are still on an October release, a French video game distributor claims that the "PlayStation Neo 4K" will instead be released in September. An earlier release, however, could just about mess up everyone else's timetables, including and especially game developers.

Sony retires Xperia C, M brands, only Xperia X until 2018

Sony retires Xperia C, M brands, only Xperia X until 2018

At MWC 2016, Sony revealed its new rebranding and re-envisioning efforts that would practically mean the end of the previous Xperia Z line. It seems, however, that the "Z" series isn't the only one getting the ax. Chinese media reports that Sony is focusing its smartphone thrust around the new Xperia X generation, all the way up to 2018. Noticeably missing are the Xperia C, M, and E brands that made up the rest of Sony's lineup, implying that those are similarly being retired in favor of a single name.

Sony Xperia C6 Ultra phablet leaked with a 16MP front cam

Al most anyone and everyone is about selfies these days. Well, maybe except Leica. Most smartphone makers, however, have at least one, maybe even more, selfie-friendly model in their lineup. Sony, whose name was, and partly still is, synonymous with digital photography, is no different. It seems, however, it saved its selfie aspirations not for its new premium Xperia X flagship line but for the Xperia C6 Ultra, a mid-range tablet that boasts of a 16 megapixel front camera, one of two largest selfie cameras on a smartphone so far.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End multiplayer modes, maps will be free

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End multiplayer modes, maps will be free

Details have been dropped on the multiplayer for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, with the first and foremost tidbit being that future multiplayer modes and maps will be arriving in the game for free. As well, all of the gameplay and vanity items available in the in-game store will also be obtainable through ordinary (read: free) gameplay. The idea, says the game's creator, is to have a game that "won’t be fragmented by different types of DLC."

Sony patents a contact lens that houses a camera

Sony patents a contact lens that houses a camera

OK, this is bound to raise some red flags among privacy advocates, even more than Google Glass ever did. It is also going to make sci-fi aficionados drool and wish they would still be alive, not to mention capable of wearing this smart contact lens, when it actually becomes a product. Smart contact lenses are nothing new to our ears, but what Sony has tried to patent is incredible in both senses of the word: a contact lens that crams enough camera hardware to make it both useful and dangerous.

Hack ditches Sony camera 30 minute video recording limit

Hack ditches Sony camera 30 minute video recording limit

One of the issues that people have with Sony digital cameras are seemingly arbitrary limits on things like video recording time and locks to the language menu. Limiting video recording to only 30 minutes means that you can't do things like record an entire birthday party in one go, you have to record it in 30-minute chunks. Sony may not do anything to remove that limit officially, but a new hack for Sony Alpha cameras has landed that will remove that time limit for you.
