Sony Almost Made the Perfect Commuter Earbuds

There are two ways of listening to music: you can shut everything out and focus purely on the tunes, or you can use music to enhance other activities in your life. Headphones and earbuds, especially those of the noise-cancelling variety, are quite good at first; you just put some on, turn up the volume, and let everything else fade away. However, when it comes to the second kind of enjoyment of tunes, earbuds aren’t quite as proficient. Now sometimes that’s a good thing, because I doubt many people like hearing others grunt at the gym or taking a jackhammer to the street. But at the same time, wearing earbuds often means you lose the ability to hear the bell of a bike coming up from behind you, or the chirping of birds on a beautiful day in the park. Read More >>

Fortnite Is Bad But Sony’s Refusal to Play Nice Is Worse

Earlier this week, Nintendo delighted Fortnite fans by announcing that the game, which might just be the most popular game being played right now, was coming to the Switch immediately. Even better, Switch players would be able to compete with PC and Xbox players, too—instant digital distribution and multiplayer open to all! Nintendo’s announcement felt like a dream come true after years of console makers refusing to play nice. But it isn’t a dream, because Sony continues to flip the bird to its competitors and Fortnite players on the PS4 are being left out in the cold, unable to play with Xbox or Switch gamers.

Into the Spider-Verse Could Connect All of Sony’s Spider-Man Movies

Into the Spider-Verse is Sony’s first feature-length animated Spider-Man film, and it’s the first time we’ll see Marvel’s Miles Morales on the big screen. Though it could appear on the surface to have no connections to the live-action films, there’s a very real possibility the movie could establish some major connections between all of Sony’s Spider-Man flicks going back to the Tobey Maguire era.

All the Hints and Details We Uncovered in the New Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Trailer

The great thing about Sony’s new trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is that while it’s (wonderfully) light on specific details about the plot, it’s chock-full of little hints and clues about what we can expect to see in the film. The trailer’s dense in the best way possible — so dense that we had to break it all down and highlight the most exciting and fascinating parts. Read More >>

The Gigantic 8X Zoom Lens on Sony’s RX100 VI Does What Your Smartphone Can’t

It’s no secret that camera sales are down, thanks mostly to the convenience and capabilities of smartphone shooters. Who wants to carry another device just to take pictures? That’s the question camera makers are currently facing, but with the Rx100 Mark VI, Sony has a solid answer in the form of a gigantic 24-200-millimetre zoom lens that disappears into the camera.

Sony, Please Don’t Give Up on Gadgets

Sony’s new CEO, Kenichiro Yoshida, has a three-year plan to improve the company’s profits. During a presentation to investors yesterday, he promoted three core areas of investment: services, semiconductors, and AI/robotics. If you’re a fan of Sony, one key thing seems to be missing from that future: Gadgets. Read More >>

This New PS4 Controller is Riffing Hard on Microsoft’s Super Customisable Controller in a Very Good Way

One of the best controllers you can get for your PC or Xbox is the super customisable Microsoft Elite, but if you’re a PS4 fan you’ll have to go to third party peripheral maker Scuf to get any kind of customisation. We’ve liked Scufs PS4 controllers in the past quite a bit, but its latest PS4 controller, the Vantage, throws out the PS4 design to create a hybrid even Microsoft would be proud of. Read More >>

Sony Announces 4K XZ2 Premium, But Has “No Plans” to Bring it to the UK

Sony has just announced that the rumours are true, and it will be releasing an XZ2 Premium complete with a 4K display. Not only that, but it'll be the first Sony phone to come with a dual-lens camera system which Sony promises makes a massive improvement on the quality of the final picture. The bad news, however, is that the company claims it has no plans to bring it to the UK. Read More >>

Sony’s Glowing Bluetooth Speaker Didn’t Take Me to the Club, Just Back to 1992

It’s unclear when the Sony Sports boombox became my must-have gadget, but I think it was around 1992. With its bright yellow case, the portable music machine could be spotted from across the pool like a big bright sign that screamed, “I am rugged and cool!” I wanted one for all the wrong reasons, and now, it’s strange to feel similar rumblings about Sony’s new, waterproof Bluetooth speaker.

Rumour Claims Sony is Developing a Bezel-Less Phone With a 4K Display

Take a minute and think of as many phones with 4K displays as you can. Chances are the only company that will come to mind is Sony, specifically the Xperia Z5 Premium and Xperia XZ Premium. Other phone companies seem to have stuck their displays with a maximum QHD resolution, at least for the time being. Sony isn't falling in line with the crowd and giving up 4K phones, however, with new reports from China claiming it has a bezel-less phone with a 4K display on the way. Read More >>

MWC 2018: It Doesn’t Feel like Sony’s Xperia XZ2 is Even Trying to Compete With the Big Dogs

When you think about the race to the top of the 'Best Smartphone' list over the last few years, you'll see names like Apple, Samsung, Google, LG, OnePlus, and maybe Huawei pop up time and time again. Back in the day, those lists would also include HTC and Sony, and while HTC seems to have been trying quite hard to keep itself up at the top, it's never felt like Sony was putting in a significant amount of effort.

Sony just announced a brand new, super cheap (for what it is) full-frame mirrorless camera that could make every high-end micro 4/3 camera, like the Panasonic GH5 and GH5s, look like complete garbage. The news came at the Wedding & Portrait Photographer International trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Read More >>
