Xperia 5 DxOMark benchmark score should worry Sony

Xperia 5 DxOMark benchmark score should worry Sony

The Xperia 1, as its name suggests, was supposed to mark a new beginning for Sony's mobile business. It was the first of its kind to be given access to Sony's own high-end imaging sensors. The Xperia 5 that shortly followed was supposed to improve on that as well. But if the two's ratings on DxOMark as well as other reviews are any indication, Sony might soon be really out of the smartphone game, despite having a strong camera DNA.

Man hijacks airport TV to play video games: Here’s how he did it

A man decided to play a video game on a monitor at an airport in Portland yesterday, January 16, 2020. This was not a particularly forward-thinking idea, given the forever-volatile nature of airports in general here in the USA for the past couple of decades. But he did it anyway. He decided that his best course of action for staving off boredom at the airport at 4:40 AM was to "hijack" an official airport TV screen.

Iron Man VR pushed back to spring, capping off a week of big game delays

Another day, another delay: Iron Man VR, an upcoming title exclusive to the PlayStation VR (and by extension, the PlayStation 4), has been hit with a delay.

Horizon Zero Dawn may come to PC in a huge move for Sony

Horizon Zero Dawn may come to PC in a huge move for Sony

If there's been a theme to this console generation for Sony, it's definitely been "exclusives." The PlayStation 4 has been the best-selling console of the generation for a number of reasons, but a major contributor has certainly been Sony's laser focus on exclusives for the machine. It may not be long, however, until we see Sony put at least one of its exclusives on PC.

Cyberpunk 2077 release date delayed right into Avengers

This morning the folks at CD PROJEKT RED announced a slight delay in the release of their next major game Cyberpunk 2077.

Sony Wireless Shooting Grip is made for its mirrorless cameras

Sony Wireless Shooting Grip is made for its mirrorless cameras

Smartphone cameras may be ubiquitous and have significantly improved over the years but they're still a long way from overthrowing professional equipment, even the more handy ones. Mirrorless cameras are often the go-to products for on-the-go photography gear but, despite their portability, can still sometimes be a pain to hold, especially over long periods. That's why Sony has just announced the GP-VPT2BT Shooting Grip which it touts as the best hassle-free grip in its arsenal, mostly because it doesn't use any cables to work.

PlayStation is skipping E3 2020, throws subtle shade at the event

With the upcoming launch of the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5, the console wars are back again in full swing. Depending on who you ask, one or the other is the console to beat this year. It is arguable, though, that Microsoft's gaming platform may be enjoying the lion's share of the media attention while Sony seems to be biding its time. That perception may have just been reinforced now that Sony has said, somewhat still unofficially, that it will be skipping the E3 show for the second time in a row.

PlayStation 5 logo unveiled at CES 2020, nothing more

PlayStation 5 logo unveiled at CES 2020, nothing more

While Sony does have a lot to say at CES 2020, it is almost comically mum about its upcoming console. It might be reserving its big splash for a more opportune, gaming-centric event but it doesn't seem to have figured out how to hype it over a prolonged period of time. It did have one thing to say about the PlayStation 5, though, and that pretty much boils down to its official logo. It's better than nothing but, all things considering, its silence might be a bit worrying.
