PlayStation coming to iPhone and Android, for real this time

Sony seems to have seen the light when it comes to mobile device gaming, creating a new company by the name of ForwardWorks to engage with iPhones, iPads, and Android devices of all sorts.

Sony A99 II brings modern technologies to a familiar name

Sony A99 II brings modern technologies to a familiar name

Almost exactly four years ago, Sony introduced what became the flagship model for its line of interchangeable lense cameras, the A99. But for years is too long a time for a flagship to stay at the top and the A99 was eventually overtaken by newer models. At Photokina this year, Sony is attempting to reclaim the throne with an updated camera but still a familiar name. The Sony A99 II obviously takes its lead from 2012’s forefrunner, but boasts of the technologies befitting a 2016 flagship.

Xperia X Compact now on pre-order in the US

Those who have been hoping for a real miniature flagship Sony smartphone worth its salt won’t have to wait much longer.

Don’t be ridiculous, Sony: PS4 can’t compete with PC

Don’t be ridiculous, Sony: PS4 can’t compete with PC

As many of you will know by now, Sony has announced the PS4 Pro, serving as something of a stop-gap between this generation and the next (if console generations will even continue to be a thing after this one). Sony's 4K and HDR compatible console could be hitting the scene as much as a full year before Microsoft's Project Scorpio hits the scene, giving Sony a significant head start that is so massively important in this console arms race it and Microsoft have found themselves in.

PlayStation Vue will soon offer HBO and Cinemax

PlayStation Vue, Sony’s over-the-Internet live television service, will soon offer HBO and Cinemax as channel options for those who want them. The announcement coincides with another one — HBO Now will soon be available on both the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation 4, giving those with a standalone HBO Now subscription — regardless of whether they have Vue — the ability to watch shows through it on their PS console.

There are a bunch of use scenarios where you want a projector to go with you on the road. The catch is that most projectors are large, bulky, and not easy to take with you.

Sony Blu-ray Player, Home Theater Projector flaunt 4K HDR

Sony Blu-ray Player, Home Theater Projector flaunt 4K HDR

These days, 2K just ain’t enough. Unless you’re talking about smartphones. Heck, even plain 4K might not be! If TV makers are to be asked, 4K HDR is where it’s at, combining the promises of ultra high def resolutions with an ultra high gamut of colors. Of course, that works well for entertainment equipment manufacturers like Sony, who, coincidentally, just announced its first 4K UHD HDR Blu-ray Player, the X1000ES, as well as a brand new 4K UHD HDR Home Theater Projector, the VPL-VW675ES, both taking advantage of the slow but growing number of available 4K content, both on disk and on the Internet.
