Sony Project Morpheus Hands-On: The Virtual Future Is Very Bright

When Sony announced its intentions to take Oculus Rift head-on, we were excited. The Rift (rightly) gets all of the attention and praise for its VR prowess, but a little competition would be good for the emerging technology. Today at E3 in Los Angeles we finally got to try Project Morpheus for ourselves, and it’s pretty awesome.


The PlayStation TV Is Coming To Australia

The PlayStation TV, released exclusively to Japan in late 2013 as the Vita TV, is coming to Australia this spring. The mini-console is basically a cross between a PlayStation 3 and a PlayStation Vita, letting you play handheld Vita games on the big screen with a PS3 controller.


Sony's A7S Could Be The New Champion Of Low-Light Cinematography

4K has securely replaced 3D as the buzzword feature on new TVs, and as content producers scramble to churn out genuine ultra HD content, it looks like Sony’s new A7S just might be their weapon of choice. It trades the 36.4 megapixels of the A7R for a 12.2-megapixel sensor optimised to shoot incredible low-light video in the darkest of conditions.


Remember Glasstron? We Were Such Dorks Back Then

Google’s latest attempt to make Glass™™™ fashionable reminds me (at least aesthetically) of Sony’s Glasstron — a cyberpunk headset display from 1998. The company claimed that it “replicates the viewing experience of a 52-inch TV at 6.5 feet”.


Sony's New Muteki Wireless Speakers Bring The House Down, Literally

Sony’s Muteki speakers have been around since 2009, and if you’ve ever seen them in person, you’d remember it — the original Muteki was a 7.2-channel surround sound system; that’s a lot of speakers. This year, the overpowered speaker line-up has diversified; there are new Micro, Mini and massive Muteki setups, all of which can knock your socks off.


How To Choose The Best TV For Gaming

If you’re an avid gamer that wants to buy a new TV, you’re in a bit of a difficult position. TV makers in Australia go to great pains to sell their screens’ movie- and TV-watching potential, but don’t really discuss how they perform with an Xbox One or PS4 or gaming PC plugged in.


4K Is Officially The Next Dumb Format War

If your bank account has left you unaware of the state of the 4K movement, here’s a fun surprise: if you buy a 4K movie from Sony, you’ll need a Sony television to play it back. If you buy one from Samsung, you’ll need a Samsung TV to view it. Which means that what should be a fiesta for your eyes has turned into just another proprietary pain in the arse.


Get Ready For A New Wave Of Superphones

Were you disappointed by the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 or the HTC One M8? Plenty of people weren’t exactly thrilled — while the phones are undoubtedly the best on the market at the moment, they aren’t a huge step forward in speed or features over last year’s S4 or old One. Don’t despair, though; there’s another bunch of smartphones about to be announced.


Sony Xperia Z2 Australian Review

Player three has entered the game: we’ve seen the HTC One M8, as well as the capable Samsung Galaxy S5, but where has the third flagship been this whole time? Biding its time, clearly. The Sony Xperia Z2 has landed, and it was absolutely worth the wait.


Dual-Sim Sony Xperia M2 Is Now Available For Pre-Order

What’s better than one SIM card? Two SIMs, of course! The problem is that most phones won’t accept a second SIM, no matter how much of a hammer enthusiast you are. If you’re in the market for a modern, dual-network wielding mobile, MobiCity is currently accepting pre-orders for Sony’s Xperia M2.
