PS4 games work the same in Glacier White, but I want one anyway

PS4 games work the same in Glacier White, but I want one anyway

I'll be the first to admit that I'm a sucker for alternate colors in electronics hardware. As a tech journalist and as a consumer, I always look forward to new versions of devices - even when a new version is only marked by its new external trappings. Sony's approach with the PlayStation has always been one of total disregard for early adopters when it comes to colorways in consoles, making the only way for a person who has a PS4 to get a new look for their PS4 to buy a new one - like this Glacier White version.

Sony E-ink FES watch gets colors & patterns for 2nd gen

Sony EXTRA BASS headphones bring the thump wherever you go

Sony says that today’s music is mostly characterized by “heavy-hitting bass lines and dropping beats.” That means you’ll need speakers that can handle those adequately, not exactly the domain of headphones, especially in-ear pieces. Not so, says Sony. At least not for its EXTRA BASS headphones. It is introducing four new such headsets at CES 2017, two wireless, one wired, and one in-ear. All with deep bass notes, convenient smartphone integration and, in the case of one, even noise cancellation.

Sony BRAVIA X and A series bring 4K HDR, Android TV together

Android TV, just like Android Wear, isn’t dead yet. At least not if you judge it based on the devices and announcements made at CES 2017. First there was DISH’s AirTV box, powered by Android TV. Then there’s the fresh new NVIDIA SHIELD, also powered by Android TV. Sony is also joining that fray with two new series from its BRAVIA line, the X and the A TVs. Both boast of handling 4K HDR with precision, accuracy,and beauty. Both also offer an augmented TV viewing experience made possible by Android TV.

Sony Walkman NW-A35 looks like a thick, tiny Xperia XZ

Some have declared the Walkman dead in the advent of iPods and then smartphones, but Sony refuses to give up on such an iconic brand. It has revived the name, given it a digital focus, and reshaped it with sometimes odd designs. The new Walkman NW-A35 that it just revealed at CES 2017 is such an example. You wouldn’t be blamed if you mistook it for one of Sony’s smartphones because it pretty much looks like a smaller but thicker version of the its Xperia XZ flagship. Without Android inside as well.
