Maybe Microsoft’s Xbox Chief Didn’t Say the Stupidest Thing About Cloud Gaming This Week

In a quote in Politico’s new technology-focused publication, Protocol, Xbox Chief Phil Spencer said something seemingly earth-shattering for any gamer: it isn’t Nintendo or Sony that Microsoft views as primary competitors in the gaming space, but Amazon and Google. That sounds deeply stupid. Google’s Stadia has basically been a flop, and Amazon hasn’t even launched a gaming console or service (no, the Amazon Fire does not count). But the cloud gaming race is a little more complex than it seems at first glance. Read More >>

Sony’s First Android-Powered Walkman Is Damn Compelling

Why would anyone want a Walkman in the streaming age? That’s the question I asked myself when I first fiddled with the small Sony NW-A105. One month later, I’ve learned enough about the music player to answer that question and many more. Sometimes its good to cut out the distractions of texts and phone calls and just embrace a tiny device that pumps out high-quality tunes. As the first Walkman device from Sony with Android built-in, the Sony NW-A105 isn’t just good for music though, it’s also a great alternative to your phone for long vacations. Read More >>

I Cannot Believe There’s Really Going to Be a Morbius Movie

If you told me 20 years ago that third-tier Spider-Man character Morbius the Living Vampire would not just appear in a comic book movie but star in one, I’d have laughed in your face. If you told me 10, or even five years ago, I would have called you a liar. Now, the movie is coming out in a mere six months, and the recent trailer is incontrovertible proof that it actually exists – and I still cannot believe this is happening. Read More >>

Sony Has Decided We Need a New Anaconda Movie

For a while there, in the late ‘90s, it felt like we were all really afraid of snakes. The vanguard of that fear was Anaconda, one of the most-mocked and most-beloved garbage monster movies of the era. Starring Ice Cube, Jennifer Lopez, and Jon Voight, it was a delightful romp through the Amazon. Or, well, it was a delightful romp for the giant snake that ate everybody. Read More >>

Don’t Buy a New TV

The proposition is seemingly simple. A television should show you a moving picture, provide some accompanying sound, and ideally, blend in with your home decor. This has been the case since the invention of TV. This year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, we saw the newest and best TVs. They’re pretty boring, which is weirdly exciting.

The Spider-Verse Connections in Morbius Are Confusing as Hell

Morbius’ first trailer has arrived, and while it mostly focuses on laying out the origin story of its titular vampire, it also suggests that the movie’s going to have some rather direct and significant ties to Spider-Man, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and... perhaps Sony’s excellent Spider-Man game. It’s all a little confusing, but really, when haven’t comic book movies been kind of messy? Read More >>
