Sony Reon Pocket wearable air conditioner goes on sale in Japan

Japan enjoys a stereotype for producing rather eccentric products and devices and Sony's latest isn't exactly helping. Born from its internal crowdfunding platform, the Reon Pocket was revealed last year to be a thermal device you can wear underneath your shirt to keep you cool during these summer days.

The Sony a7S II replacement is coming and it’s going to be big

Sony is starting from scratch with the Alpha 7S Mark II replacement, promising that the hotly-anticipated camera will be a ground-up reinvention.

The Last of Us Part II has become Sony’s fastest-selling PS4 game

The Last of Us Part II may have drawn some controversy among fans of the series, but it doesn't seem that was enough to slow down sales. Sony and Naughty Dog have announced that The Last of Us Part II has become the fastest selling first-party exclusive title for PlayStation 4.

Better late than never, as they say, and that applies especially for squashing software bugs. All non-trivial software have bugs and that's true both for games as well as the platforms that run these games.

Xbox Series X price leak could blow PS5 out of the water

Xbox Series X price leak could blow PS5 out of the water

The Microsoft Xbox Series X price and release date schedule leaked in part, suggesting the Sony PlayStation 5 could be in trouble. Of course we still do not know the pricing of the PlayStation 5 for certain, but if a leaked listing on Amazon France proves accurate, Sony might need to make some adjustments. Today's situation with Microsoft seems to be that they'll position the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S as "loss leaders", with prices that rely heavily on future game purchases and subscription fees gathered from gamers that've bought into their ecosystem.

PlayStation 5 price and release date leak says Xbox Series X has edge

The Sony PlayStation 5 (PS5, if you prefer) had a bit of a leaky listing problem today on Amazon France. There, it would appear that the Sony PS5 was listed as a pre-release product with a release date of November 20, 2020, and prices at approximately 400 and 500 Euro.
