The best games of E3 2017

For more than 20 years, E3 – or the Electronic Entertainment Expo – has been ground zero for the year’s biggest game announcements. And it’s going on again right now. We’ve been through almost all of the big press conferences at this point, but Nintendo is still ahead, not to mention anything else exciting from third-parties and indies. And we’ll be neck-deep in trailers an...[Read More]

Farpoint – The closest you’ll ever get to being a space marine

At some point, when playing Farpoint on PlayStation VR, you’ll experience the moment. It could be the first time an alien spider-thing flings itself at your face, or when you’re cowering behind rocks while hostile flying robots fire missiles at you, or simply when you emerge from a dusty tunnel into a graveyard of rusted star cruisers. But one way or another, it’ll definitely hap...[Read More]

Sony Xperia XZ Premium – Eye-popping specs aren’t enough to lift Sony’s latest into the top tier

Ever wanted to go to a restaurant and ask for everything on the menu? The burger, the seafood, the chicken, and the ribs? Tell them it’s your birthday, when it’s actually just a Wednesday? This sort of excess is what the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is about. It has a 4K HDR screen, one of the fastest phone processors currently available, 64GB storage and a 19MP camera. The only downside, other than the...[Read More]

Sony PlayStation 4 Pro — Games Console of the Year 2016

The PlayStation 4 is already crushing it this console generation, offering the best exclusive games, performance, and price out of the gate. So what did Sony do? Make the machine a whole lot better. The PlayStation 4 Pro doesn’t replace the three-year-old (and some change) core console, which still has a lot of life left in it, but it does bring big enhancements for power players. Bumping ga...[Read More]

5 reasons to be excited about Gran Turismo Sport

Since its inception, Gran Turismo has been the racing game to beat. Or should that be ‘racing simulation’? See, while other titles might have offered more action, better damage and greater excitement, none could beat GT to the line when it came to true-to-life racing recreation. News in 2015, then, that Gran Turismo would be returning as Gran Turismo Sport was, perhaps predictably, met with great ...[Read More]

5 new things your PS4 can now do

Good news, then: Sony has announced that the 4.5 system update for PlayStation 4 – which has spent the last month or so in beta – will roll out on 9 March. That’s… why, that’s today. What’s in store, th...[Read More]

Sony’s charming little Xperia Agent robot will manage your home

OK, OK, you caught us – the Xperia Agent isn’t new, having first been spotted on trade show floors at MWC 2016. But this year, we’re getting a taste of its expanded repertoire of tricks. It’s still got an adorable “head” with two blinky eyes, which sits on top of a body made up mostly of screen, showing more info about the robot’s task at hand. We got a bit of a puppy vibe ...[Read More]

Sony XZ Premium hands-on – Who needs a TV for 4K HDR video?

You’ve got to hand it to Sony – there’s no other phone maker out there that can keep up with its constant flow of flagship smartphones. The Xperia XZ only rocked up in September, but a successor is already hot on its heels. Only it’s not quite that simple. Think of the XZ Premium as a high-tech half brother, upping the ante on specs (and probably on price, too) but otherwise sticking with So...[Read More]

Is Sony’s 4K HDR phone a stroke of genius or a sign of madness?

Smartphones should push the boundaries of technology – of that there’s no doubt. But should they do it just for the sake of doing it? As in, should Sony really stick 4K HDR in a phone just because it can – even though no-one will buy the Xperia XZ Premium? Sure, 4K HDR will likely look astounding on a 5.5in LCD – the kind of nice that’ll have friends reaching out to touch your ph...[Read More]

Your next smartphone will shoot 1000fps ultra slow-mo videos

Get ready for some Matrix-style slow motion – without the crazy expensive camera hardware. Sony has pulled back the curtain on a new smartphone sensor, one that’ll shoot Full HD 1080p video at a frankly ridiculous 1000fps. That’s about eight times faster than the rest of the smartphone world, according to Sony. The new sensor should be pretty handy when it comes to still photos, ...[Read More]
