Coming in just under the wire, Sony has announced the latest lineup of free PlayStation Plus games for October. It appears that the decisions were made at the last second this month, as the video which typically showcases all six games for the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita only includes the new-gen additions this time around.

The days of needing a $2,000 DSLR in order to capture professional quality images are long gone. Now, there’s a wide range of more compact mirrorless cameras that are more than good enough to get the job done. We’re not talking about cheap point-and-shoot cameras that are barely better than a smartphone camera. We’re talking about professional grade mirrorless cameras with lenses so good, you won’t believe it.
Case in point: The Sony Alpha a6000, which is available on Amazon right now for $200 off with a 16-50mm zoom lens. More →
There have always been concerns about how long Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo can continue pushing out $300-500 machines every few years, but the former head of Xbox doesn’t think that this is the last generation.

Having a 4K smartphone may sound cool but can you actually tell the difference between a 4K smartphone display and a quad HD display?

On Wednesday afternoon in Berlin, Sony took the stage at IFA 2015 to unveil a new lineup of consumer electronics stretching across multiple product categories. Although the smartphone stole the spotlight, there were a few other highlights as well, so we’ve decided to collect the three announcements that stuck out to us and round them up below.
The list of PlayStation 4 exclusives for the remainder of 2015 is worryingly slim, but gamers will be pleased to know that the elusive Uncharted 4 finally has a release date. Sony announced on Monday that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will launch on March 18th, 2016, along with a variety of limited edition packages. More →
Sony this past week took the wraps off a crazy and new TV remote control with a full-sized built-in speaker. Needless to say, this is likely the biggest and most ridiculous TV remote you’re ever going to see. While we can certainly appreciate the idea behind this contraption, it certainly won’t win any awards for industrial design anytime soon.
Remember that crazy Amazon sale we told you about on huge 4K HDTVs? Well now it’s time to arm yourself with a fantastic Blu-ray player that will upscale all of your standard Blu-ray discs to 4K ultra HD levels. This great Sony Blu-ray player is currently the #1 best-selling new release in the Blu-ray player category, and this week only it’s on sale for 29% off. More →
Earlier this week, we told you about a huge sale Amazon is having on 4K TVs with great, big screens… and they’re all still on sale at big discounts if you want to check out that post. Today, the BGR Deals Team is focusing on TVs again, but from a different angle: big-screen HDTVs that are shockingly affordable.
You should note that these prices are only good until the end of the day on August 29th though, so you had better hurry if you see anything you like. More →
Sony this past year partnered up with a Japanese robotics company called ZMP to establish a new drone company called Aerosense. While the joint partnership understandably raised a few eyebrows at first, Sony believes that it can leverage its expertise in camera and communications technologies to make an impact in the burgeoning drone market.
On Monday, Sony released video footage of a drone prototype borne out of its relationship with ZMP. Suffice it to say, this isn’t your everyday $150 Quadcopter. And trust us when we say that that’s a good thing. More →
Look, we’re going to level with you: 4K TVs still aren’t a must-have. Even though services like Netflix are starting to get on board, you know as well as we do that there just isn’t enough “ultra HD” 4K content out there to make 4K a necessity. But 4K content is coming and if you’re smart, you’ll begin to prepare yourself now.
BGR readers in the market for a new TV should absolutely think about picking up a 4K set. Sure, you might save a few dollars by going with a 1080p unit instead, but when you get to larger screens that are 55 inches and up, you really can tell the difference between full HD and ultra HD. In a couple of years when ultra HD content is everywhere, do you want to be left out?
Well, you’re in luck, because Amazon is having a big sale on HDTVs this week, and there are some great oversized 4K units to be found. We’ve picked out the five best deals and you’ll find them listed below. More →
