Facebook made waves in the tech world Tuesday evening by purchasing yet again, a company. However this one comes out of left field and has many wondering why?
I think the media and gamers alike didn’t expect Sony to announce anything very significant in regards to the video gaming world at CES 2014. That’s what E3 is for right? Well… yeah. However, yesterday Sony broke the rules by quietly dropping two bombs on the gaming world at CES.
There is a lot of excitement brewing around the launch of next generation consoles, and the one that has generated the most attention this go round has been the PlayStation 4 (PS4). So when I heard that people can get an early opportunity to see and play with a PS4 at a local Sony Store, I decided to take advantage of it.
Astro has confirmed its widely-popular gaming headsets designed specifically for PS3 will ’100% deliver Dolby Digital Audio’ to the PS4 through a post-launch firmware update. Details after the break:
DLB has been going big on videos the month so it’s the best time to subscribe to him. In this video he unboxes his new next gen television from TCL, it’s a great watch so check it out below.
Sony have released some updated pictures of the Playstation 4 and it’s new accessories, plus the screenshots show the new Playstation Network app and what features you’ll have access to when using the application. The last pictures show the PS4 UI, These are nothing new and you have probably seen them before but the UI has received a few tweaks and the pictures give some great detail so it’s still worth a look.
Just click ‘Read More’ to see all the screenshots, enjoy.
Well you can say that the consoles wars have began – well technically. The OUYA has released and I must say it has taken the public by storm with Amazon being sold out and also GameStop sold out too, along with other retailers.
With this new console only being $99 dollars, it’s a steal and you should definitely buy it. Are you asking why should you buy it? Now that’s a good question!
E3 2013 was a great one on a whole. They usually are, but this one was very special for a particular company that in the console gaming market was recently considered unable to fix its own problems.
For the first time in 5 years, Sony Corp. turned a net profit. 43b Yen/$432m/£280m to specific.
While this is nowhere near the heights of Sony 10 years ago, they are clearly moving in the right direction. With Kaz at the helm, Sony has released a strong contender in the mobile space: the Xperia Z. There is also the impending release of the PS4 later this year. It remains to be seen where Sony move forward in the Photography and Television industries but Sony have made a good start.
It is important to remember Sony have recently sold off significant buildings, generating $2.5 billion. If that’s taken into account, Sony would very much still be in the red. Thoughts?

So as if Microsoft hadn’t dropped a big enough date-bomb today, Apple too wanted in on the game. Apple’s annual World Wide Developers Conference will be held between June 10-14, 2013.
Yeah, I know it’s not gonna be a blockbuster console reveal (or could it? ;)) but we’re sure to hear about iOS7, along with the next generation OSX. But theres plenty of rumours swirling around that maybe we’ll see the iPhone 5S in June.
Excited? Couldn’t care? Comment!
