PlayStation Now finally adds first PS2 titles for streaming

PlayStation Now finally adds first PS2 titles for streaming

Once upon a time, it seemed that the future of gaming would be in streaming. Not live streaming game playthroughs but actually streaming the contents of the game and sending back input from console to server. Neither of the two biggest game streaming services, Sony's PlayStation Now and NVIDIA's GeForce NOW, really gained mass appeal to cement game streaming's place in the market. Now Sony is giving it another try by appealing to one of the most powerful and most lucrative sentiments of late: nostalgia.

Xperia Ear Duo pre-order available now, launching this month

Xperia Ear Duo pre-order available now, launching this month

This is probably one of the longest waiting time between announcement and retail launch. Granted, Xperia Ear "Open Style", as the Xperia Ear Duo was initially called, was first shown off as a near-final prototype August last year. With the interest in ubiquitous smart assistants on the rise, perhaps Sony thought that now is the perfect time to bring the Xperia Ear Duo to the market. It doesn't hurt that the Apple AirPods also made two-piece earbuds more fashionable now.

Sony earnings: PS4 booming, Mobile not so much

Sony earnings: PS4 booming, Mobile not so much

Sony's earnings report for the year 2017 suggested they'd sold a whopper of an amount of units of their current gaming console, PlayStation 4. After selling 76 million+ PlayStation 3 units over the product's lifetime, Sony's on track to sell that many by the end of the current financial year. That's no small feat - but it's still a while away from the greatest selling home console of all time - PlayStation 2.

Sony X Mount is an Xperia accessory for DualShock 4 controllers

Sony has introduced a new accessory for mobile gamers: the X Mount. This device is designed specifically for the maker's Xperia smartphones and the DualShock 4 game controller included with the PlayStation 4.

Venom’s first official trailer shows us what we want to see

Venom’s first official trailer shows us what we want to see

While Marvel is gearing up to premiere the culmination of ten years of movies with this week's Avengers: Infinity War, Sony has been rather quietly plugging away with its feature film based on Venom, one of Spider-Man's most popular enemies. The film's first teaser trailer premiered back in February, but unfortunately, we didn't get to see Venom himself - merely Eddie Brock, who acts as a host for the Venom symbiote. That all changes today with the first official trailer for Venom, which finally shows us what we all want to see.

Just in time for God of War, Target discounts PS4 Pro

Just in time for God of War, Target discounts PS4 Pro

While it's generally easy enough to find a discount on the standard PS4, the same isn't necessarily true for the more powerful PlayStation 4 Pro. Since it's a relatively recent console, price drops have been few and far between, but if you've been holding out on buying one in the hopes that you'll find it on the cheap, now is your chance. Target has started a new promotion on the PlayStation 4 Pro, and it nearly brings the console down to the price of a standard PlayStation 4.

Sony’s Digital Paper Tablet finally gets a version you might use

Sony’s Digital Paper Tablet finally gets a version you might use

When most of us think of e-ink devices, we probably think of something small like one of Amazon's Kindles. Sony took a different approach with its DPT-RP1 tablet, which features a display as large as a standard sheet of A4 paper and is meant for more than reading eBooks. This tablet was instead meant for the professional world, targeting occupations that handle a large number of documents, such as lawyers or doctors.

God of War review roundup: 3 things we learned

God of War review roundup: 3 things we learned

While God of War 3 did a lot to neatly wrap up the original trilogy, it seems that Sony wasn't quite finished with one of its marquee franchises. Deep down, we all probably knew that God of War would be returning one day, but few of us probably expected to return like this. Instead of continuing the exploits of Kratos in Ancient Greece, this year's God of War serves as something of a soft reboot for the series, placing our fiery protagonist in a Norse setting.

FTC: “Warranty Void If Removed” stickers are illegal

FTC: “Warranty Void If Removed” stickers are illegal

The FTC brought out the rule hammer this week in a letter to 6 companies about their stickers. Those stickers you've got on the insides of your smartphone and the outside of your gaming console - the ones you're not supposed to remove. Yeah, those are illegal. This isn't a new ruling by the FTC, it's a warning from the FTC to companies under their jurisdiction that these stickers are not enforceable.

PlayStation 5 not even close to a store near you!

PlayStation 5 not even close to a store near you!

The Sony PlayStation 5 (PS5) might exist at some point, but for now - it's at least a couple years off. This information comes from a report that speaks with industry insiders who, in turn, suggest that there's no real news to be told. It's sort of like a non-report - or maybe a better comparison to make would be to a scientific study that proves a theory incorrect.
