The dawn of VR gaming came and went without a great deal of fanfare. Sure, every technology blog on the internet is excitedly declaring virtual reality to be the next big thing, but the average consumer (or even the average gamer) simply doesn’t have the hardware to run a game in VR.

That’s where PlayStation VR is going to break boundaries this fall.

Sony responds to Microsoft’s invitation for cross-network play between PS4 and Xbox One

Earlier this week, ID@Xbox director Chris Charla seemed to imply in a post on the Xbox Wire that Microsoft would be willing to link up with Sony in order to allow for cross-network play between Xbox Live and PSN players. Of course, Charla didn’t actually mention the PlayStation 4 by name, so it only makes sense that Sony’s response would be equally cryptic.

Sony Concept N Headphones

Sony shows off futuristic Concept N headphones designed to be worn around your neck

Sony shows off futuristic Concept N headphones designed to be worn around your neck

Thanks to Future Lab, Sony’s new R&D offshoot, the Tokyo-based company took some time at South by Southwest this past weekend to unveil an interesting new headphone design that may not be as crazy as it appears at first glance.

Sony calls its new pair of headphones Concept N, and it’s an interesting concept to say the least. The headphones are designed to wrap around a user’s neck, which admittedly isn’t something we haven’t seen before. But what makes Concept N unique and arguably intriguing is a specially designed speaker system that promises to direct sounds upwards towards a listener’s ears. As a result, the headphones promise to let wearers enjoy whatever they happen to be listening to without missing out on sounds from the surrounding environment.
