Sony unveils its new flagship tablet: The Xperia Z2 Tablet

Sony scored a minor hit with its Xperia Z smartphone last year but the company has still had no luck coming up with a hit tablet. Sony is clearly hoping to change that with the new Xperia Z2 Tablet, a new device that features a 10.1-inch full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.3GHz quad-core processor, an 8.1-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 3GB of RAM and a 6000mAh battery. The Xperia Z2 Tablet will also be tailored toward gamers and will be compatible with the PlayStation’s wireless DualShock 3 controller. The new tablet will be available in March, although Sony hasn’t yet announced pricing for the device. Sony’s full press release follows below.

Insider says PlayStation 4′s virtual reality headset is going to be ‘amazing’

Sony isn’t having any trouble at all selling PlayStation 4 consoles. In fact, the company just announced that PS4 sales to date have surpassed 5.3 million units. The Japanese gaming giant continues to sell consoles about as quickly as it can build them, but as is always the case, things are bound to slow down eventually as new consoles age and the novelty dwindles. So, what will be the next big catalyst that gives the new video game console generation an added boost? Will it simply be price cuts or cheaper versions of each box, or are we in store for something new and special? More →

According to NPD Group’s January numbers for U.S. console sales, not much has changed for Microsoft since last year. In fact, Sony’s margin of victory looks like it has widened. More →
