Earlier this week, Sony unleashed system software update 3.50 for the PlayStation 4. The addition of Remote Play for PC was certainly the highlight of the update, but given a few days to tinker with their consoles, gamers have found several other new features that weren’t announced before the update went live.

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.
At the beginning of March, Sony announced that it would bring the PS4’s Remote Play feature to PC with the launch of the next system software update. Just over a month later, the release date of the update has arrived, which means that PS4 owners will now be able to play PS4 games on their computers. More →
Despite the fact that Captain America: Civil War is only a month away, there’s another Marvel movie that has started creeping into everyone’s mind: the Spider-Man reboot. Now that the casting has been done and the hero himself has made an appearance in a trailer, fans of the web-slinger are getting excited.
After suffering through a couple of painstaking delays over the past several months, gamers are finally going to get their hands on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End in May. If you’re a fan of the series, you might be wondering why it took Naughty Dog so long to get this sequel out the door, but after having spent a few hours with Uncharted 4 last week, I can assure you that it’s going to be worth the wait.

Sony’s PlayStation VR headset will work with the existing PlayStation 4, but the Japanese company is also developing a new PS4 that’s supposed to deliver an even better experience. The more powerful PS4 version would cater to the needs of hardcore gamers who want higher-end gaming experiences, including virtual reality. More →
If you’d rather do your binge watching on a big screen than a laptop or a tablet display, Netflix wants to help you find the right TV. Last year, the company started a new program granting select smart TVs “Netflix Recommended TV” seals of approval. The program will continue in 2016, with LG and Sony being the first to live up to the lofty standards set by the streaming company.
This week, Sony took the stage at GDC 2016 to announce the price and release window for its PlayStation VR headset. At $399, it’s easily the most affordable of the three major VR platforms launching this year, but as many gamers were quick to note, that $399 would only cover the PlayStation VR itself, not the necessary accessories.

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.
Taking the stage for a press event at GDC 2016 on Tuesday, Sony finally unveiled the price and release date for the PlayStation VR headset — a device which was originally known as Project Morpheus.
Although it was originally scheduled to launch in the first half of the year, Sony now says the PlayStation VR will launch in October for $399.
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.
Technology companies have been on a mission for years to turn anything and everything into a touchscreen. We saw one of the coolest examples of this back in October when we told you about the MUV Bird, which you can read about here. While the idea that our computing experiences can and should extend off of LCD and OLED screens and onto just about anything around us isn’t new, we have yet to see any company show off a solution that is realistic without being cost-prohibitive.
That may have just changed, however. More →
