Sony’s hot new Android projector launches soon for a sky-high price

Sony Xperia Touch Release Date, Price

About this time last year, Sony unveiled an interesting projector concept at MWC 2016 — a device slightly bigger than an Apple TV that could beam a touchscreen-like interface onto any surface, letting users interact with the various UI elements. The projector graduated from Sony’s R&D lab in time for this year’s MWC conference, and the product will actually make it to stores as the Xperia Touch. The good news is that it runs Android, which means hundreds of millions of potential buyers around the world would have no issues getting used to the new user interface. The bad news is that it’ll be insanely expensive, so most of those people will never even consider buying one.

The PSVR is a surprise hit for Sony

psvr sales

The market for virtual reality gadgets is so odd and fragmented that it's honestly impossible to forecast how any one product will perform once it's available for sale, but in the case of the PlayStation VR, sales have somehow surpassed expectations. In a recent interview with the New York Times, Sony Interactive Entertainment's Global CEO, Andrew House, finally shed some light on just how many of the PlayStation VR headsets the company has managed to sell, and the number is impressive from a number of different angles.

Sony quietly came out with the most surprising smartphone of MWC 2017

Sony Xperia XZ Premium Hands-on: Release Date

Sony early on Monday morning took the wraps off what can only be described as the best smartphone of Mobile World Congress 2017 so far, a phone we didn’t see coming. With the Galaxy S8 missing in action, we expected LG, Huawei, and even Nokia, try to steal the spotlight of the show. But Sony casually announced during a press conference hosted at its booth at MWC a brand new flagship handset that’s not only the first smartphone with a 4K HDR display, but it also packs the one chip that we're yet to see out in the wild, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.

Sadly, the Xperia XZ Premium will likely be just another hot Sony phone that the crowds will ignore.

Horizon Zero Dawn review: Pushing open world gaming to a whole new level

Horizon Zero Dawn review

Aloy isn’t supposed to venture into the ruins of Devil’s Thirst. In fact, no members of the Nora tribe are meant to set foot in the ruins, but two braves wandered in anyway, so it’s up to Aloy, a young woman who had been an outcast from the tribe until just days ago, to bring them back unscathed.

Against her better judgment, she makes her way into forbidden territory. Once there, she activates her Focus to scan the area for signs of the missing braves and follows the tracks she finds deep into the ruins, where two fearsome, aggressive Sawtooths have forced the braves into hiding on the second floor of a derelict building.

Aloy does her best to stay hidden in the tall grass on the other side of the path, but she quickly realizes that the only way to reach the braves is to take out the machines. She sets up a shock wire trap with her Tripcaster to stun one of them and slinks back into the grass, notching an arrow in preparation.

Samsung is making extra-sure the Galaxy S8’s battery won’t explode

Galaxy S8 Battery Rumors

Samsung’s next big thing is just around the corner. Unlike in previous years, the brand new Galaxy flagship's job won’t solely be to fight off Apple’s incoming iPhone. Instead, the Galaxy S8 will also have to regain the trust of customers following the massive Galaxy Note 7 battery scandal.

The Galaxy S8 will have the unfortunate role of being the first phone to launch after the combustible phablet, and Samsung is looking to make sure it won’t run into similar battery problems.

A new report indicates that Samsung is tapping a third battery maker for the Galaxy S8, which is one more step Samsung is taking to ensure the new phone will be safe for consumers.

Sony’s jaw-dropping camera sensor will power iPhones of the future

iPhone 8 camera sensor

Smartphone photography has come a really long way in the last 10 years. But if you thought the selfies are flawless and the innovation is already done, think again.

Sony is demoing a new type of camera sensor which adds more circuitry to pull off a ridiculously cool trick: 1,000 frames-per-second full HD video. In practice, that equates to footage that can be slowed down 64 times, and a solution to the worst problem with smartphone video.

External HDD support finally coming to PS4 in next system software update

PS4 external hard drive support

Back when the PlayStation 4 launched in 2013, critics weren't shy about heaping praise on to Sony's new console, but there were several fundamental issues that needed addressing. The endless list of apps on the home screen was too difficult to navigate, the launch lineup was disappointing and the PS4 lacked external hard drive support. The first of those two issues were resolved in the years after launch, but to this day, PS4 owners still have to manually replace the hard drive inside their PS4s if they want to expand their storage.

In 2017, over three years after the console hit store shelves, that's finally going to change.

‘Horizon Zero Dawn’ builds a refreshingly cohesive open world

Horizon Zero Dawn hands-on

Lately, my enthusiasm for open world games has diminished substantially. While I couldn't get enough of Spider-Man 2 or Morrowind in the mid-2000s, I found myself nitpicking the worlds of Grand Theft Auto V and The Witcher 3 in recent years. It wasn't that they were any less impressive or compelling, but I could see the seams. Open worlds were no longer an achievement -- they were a bullet point on the back of the box.

As such, I was cautious about getting too excited over Horizon Zero Dawn. From the moment I laid eyes on it at E3 2015, I knew it had the potential to be special. But it could also be another Far Cry Primal: built on good intentions and forged from the disparate remains of past successes.

After spending a few hours with the game earlier this week, I'm happy to report that Horizon Zero Dawn is not only turning out to be as special as I'd hoped it might be, but that Guerrilla Games has designed one of the most cohesive, coherent and jaw-droppingly attractive open worlds of the current generation.
