Sony Xperia XZ DxOMark verdict: great but not prefect

Sony Xperia XZ DxOMark verdict: great but not prefect

Many high-end smartphones are moving towards using dual cameras to achieve details and performance previously unattainable on mobile devices. Even Apple has jumped on that train. But just because you have two cameras doesn't mean you'll do better. That is something Sony tried to prove with the Xperia XZ and DxOMark seemingly agrees. With a score of 87, it has bested the likes of the Huawei Mate 9 and the LG V20 with their dual sensors. It still, however, falls short of beating the Google Pixel or even the Galaxy S7 edge.

Google Home, Assistant now work with some Sony speakers, TVs

Google Home might be a smart speaker but, by itself, it isn’t exactly going to rock your house in terms of audio quality or even volume. And don’t even think about playing video directly on it. For those use cases, you’ll need dedicated audio and video equipment to make the best out of the experience. And what better way to do that than with equipment powered by Google’s technology as well. Sony has just announced that, thanks to a firmware upgrade, a number of its “Chromecast built-in” speakers and 4K HDR Android TVs now integrate with Google Home and, consequently, Google Assistant.

Total PlayStation 4 sales cross 50 million mark

Despite Microsoft's recent boost in Xbox One sales, the PlayStation 4 remains dominant. Sony has announced that total PS4 sales have crossed the 50 million threshold, thanks in part to what Sony calls the "best ever Black Friday week in the history of PlayStation." That number includes sales of the freshly-released PlayStation 4 Pro, though at this early point in the console's life, PS4 Pro likely didn't contribute much to the overall tally of 50 million.

Here are the Sony PlayStation games coming to mobile next year

Mobile gaming has long been in full bloom (some might even argue it already plateaued), but the big console makers didn’t get the memo in time. It was only in September that Nintendo finally announced its first real mobile game, Super Mario Run, and rival Sony isn’t going to be left behind. Except that, it will, because it won’t be until 2017 when it launches 10 titles for both iOS and Android, hailing from its vast PlayStation treasury of games.

Sony Project Field merges card games with tablets and phones

Sony has introduced a new game platform currently only slated for Japan: Project Field. Much like Disney Infinity and Nintendo Amiibo, the system involves a dedicated pad that connects with a device (in this case, a tablet or phone) and enables physical items (game cards) to be used as part of a quasi-digital game. Data can be written to the cards (once they're placed on the base pad) including things like the character evolution for the card.

Uncharted 4’s survival mode offers five objectives and 10 stages

Uncharted 4 is about to get a rather large addition by way of a new survival mode. Arriving later this month, Uncharted 4's survival mode will seem familiar to anyone who has ever played a wave-based shooter, but with this implementation, Naughty Dog is looking to make it accessible to all players. This means, among other things, an offline mode for folks who don't have PlayStation Plus and the ability to save your progress and return to your run later.
