The PS4 Remote Play-Compatable Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Is Only Available At Optus

Sony announced today that its Xperia Z5 Premium will be an Optus exclusive.

The Xperia Z5 Premium scores the bragging right of being the world’s first 4K smartphone. Other stand-out features include a “completely reimagined” 23MP camera that uses Sony’s Alpha camera technology (that lets you capture moments at a speed of 0.033 seconds), PS4 Remote Play compatibility and a ridiculous two-day battery life.


Sony's New 4K HDR Bravia TVs Will Be Out In Australia Very Soon

After LG’s new OLEDs in March, Sony is the second big TV brand with new models out the door for 2016. And the new TVs, with 4K HDR support and twice the brightness of the OLED screens Sony is competing with, will be out in Australia quite quickly, and at surprisingly affordable prices too.


More Details Emerge On PS4.5, Which Reportedly Won't Get Its Own Games

Last month, Kotaku reported that Sony was working on a new, improved model of the PS4, what was basically a PS4.5. Now Giant Bomb is reporting some further details on this new console, and it all sounds… a bit weird.


Deadpool's Director Wants Spider-Man To Crossover Into Fox's Marvel Movies

Usually, this sort of talk would be passed off as wild dreams that could never happen. But apparently the teams behind Deadpool and the X-Men movies have already started laying out the groundwork for this classic comics team-up to happen on the big screen.


The Best Smartphone For Every Need

The funny thing about buying a smartphone in 2016 is that it’s hard to go wrong. Not too long ago, even great phones could have terrible battery life, be bogged down by gobs of unwanted software, have an awful camera, or be missing a crucial feature or two. Now, we find almost every major handset will last till bedtime, take decent photos, display them on an excellent screen, blaze through apps with a speedy processor, and browse the web with fast 4G/LTE connectivity.


PS4 Remote Play Actually Works In Australia

Sony unleashed the latest major software update for the PS4 on the world last night, and with it came Remote Play on PC and Mac. The idea is pretty attractive, especially for those with families or large sharehouses where there’s a high possibility of the TV being in use. I’ve toyed around with Remote Play across a variety of games for a number of hours. And it’s pretty impressive so far — with a few caveats.


Playstation VR Is Ridiculously Polished For Something Still In Development

When Sony announced a release date for Playstation VR a few weeks ago, I felt simultaneously excited at the potential of the platform and sceptical about what Sony would actually be able to accomplish with nothing more than a giant headset, a Playstation 4 Camera, and the PS4’s relatively middling power. Can it really compete with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive? Having just tried it, I can safely say: Hell yes.


Is This Sony's Dumb Title For The Next Spider-Man Movie?

Now that Marvel and Sony have joined forces to make the next Spider-Man movie, expectations for the film among fans are impossibly high. This possible title for the film should temper those expectations a bit.


Photographer Profile: Craig Parry, The Man Who Took A Selfie With A Whale

The Sony Alpha Art House exhibition is currently touring Australia, showcasing the winning entries from the Alpha Art House competition alongside landscape and nature images from all over the country, shot by professional photographers using Sony’s line-up of mirrorless cameras.

Award-winning surf, marine, nature photographer and Alpha Ambassador Craig Parry has always had a love of the outdoors. We had a chat to the man who scored a selfie with a humpback whale about his inspiration, opinions on selfies and how to get the best out of elements beyond your control.


Sony's Cyber-Shot RX10 III Gets An Extended Zoom And 4K Video

Sony has revealed the third camera in its Cyber-shot RX10 series, appropriately named the RX10 III. Designed to be an all-rounder, the stand out features include a super-teleporto zoom lens and a stacked CMOS sensor — which make the RX10 III suitable for a wide range of skill levels. Here is a closer look at what this camera can do.
