Xperia Z3 Pictures Leak

A closer look at the Xperia Z3, Sony’s next flagship smartphone

Sony still hasn’t found a way to effectively infiltrate the Western phone market, but that doesn’t mean the Japanese powerhouse is giving up any time soon. Our friendly neighborhood leaker @evleaks has published two new photos of what he claims to be the upcoming flagship Xperia Z3 smartphone, a phone that at first glance could easily be mistaken for an Xperia Z2. Upon further inspection, the Z3 does appear to be thinner and seems to lacks the silver trim which lined the edges of the Z2. More →

Xbox One vs. PS4 Updates

The one way Xbox One is crushing PS4

The one way Xbox One is crushing PS4

Sony took advantage of Microsoft’s early missteps to ensure that the PlayStation 4 would come out on top as the new console generation kicked off, but after being on the market for over half a year, one surprising disparity has begun to arise in the Xbox One’s favor. Despite a steady stream of updates on both consoles, the PS4 has gained very little in the way of new features while the Xbox One is loaded with functionality it didn’t have at launch. More →

Here’s why PS4 and PS3 fans should be very excited right now

Summer can be a rough time of year for gamers. The slow release schedule coupled with the beginning of a new console generation has made this summer especially difficult, but things are finally going to start picking back up in August, as evidenced by a rather strong lineup of games for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

The Last of Us Remastered Preview

Here’s everything The Last of Us Remastered is bringing to the PS4

Here’s everything The Last of Us Remastered is bringing to the PS4

A remastered version of one of the most esteemed games of the last generation, The Last of Us, is coming to the PS4 in two weeks. I haven’t done any extensive research on the matter, but I think this might be the shortest turnaround on a upscaled, triple-A rerelease in the history of console gaming, which immediately had me concerned as to the quality of the final product. After seeing the game in action on Tuesday, I’m happy to report that Naughty Dog is giving fans of the game and newcomers alike a whole lot to look forward to. More →

PS4’s lead architect discusses the death of console gaming

Five years ago, video game fans and analysts alike would have told you the next console generation would be the last. Many suspected the next round of consoles would fall flat, a prediction which gained some credence after the Wii U took a nosedive right out of the gate. The market was shifting to mobile and PC gaming, the generation had lasted years longer than it should have and nothing could possibly impress the skeptical enthusiasts. Then the PlayStation 4 launched. More →

Leaked pics could be our first look at Sony’s next major flagship phone

Sony’s smartphones don’t get nearly as much hype as new flagship phones from HTC, Samsung or LG, but Sony has been doing a nice job of improving its mobile phone offerings since the launch of the Xperia Z back in 2013. Now 9to5Google has snagged some pictures off of Chinese microblogging site Weibo that purportedly show us the Xperia Z3, which is tipped to be the next major flagship phone from Sony. More →

All the reasons why the PS4 is consistently crushing the Xbox One

All the reasons why the PS4 is consistently crushing the Xbox One

When the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One launched last November, everyone expected it to be a close race. If anything, Microsoft had a slight advantage coming off of an enormously successful near-decade with the Xbox 360, but eight months later, Sony is so far out in front that the lead seems insurmountable. So how did the PS4 become an international smash hit, doubling the sales of the Xbox One month after month? More →

How the PS4 took a lead over the Xbox One before it even existed

One of the keys to the early success of the PlayStation 4 was its release date. When Sony took the stage in February last year to reveal the PS4, everyone was a bit taken aback, Sony included. Speaking at the Develop Conference in Brighton, SCEI President Andrew House admitted that although Sony wasn’t prepared to show off the new console at the time, the company knew that it wanted to be the first on the scene.

Sony thinks it can sell you a smartphone just for the selfies

Sony on Tuesday unveiled a brand new Android handset whose main feature is the selfie-optimized front-facing camera. The Xperia C3 is not a hot flagship handset, an Xperia Z2 successor, meant to take on the high-end smartphones launched by the competition. Instead, Sony markets it simply as the “world’s best selfie smartphone.” More →

The mysterious case of the vanishing PS Vitas

If you’ve waited until now to try to get your hands on Sony’s latest portable console, you might be out of luck. Polygon has noted that even though the PS Vita was recently re-released with a slimmer frame and improved battery life, the Borderlands 2 bundle is currently out of stock at every major online retailer, including Target, Walmart, Best Buy and GameStop. The listing on Target even states that the bundle is “not sold in stores.” Amazon is no longer selling the bundle directly either — you’d have to go through a reseller to buy one from the online marketplace.
