Over the last few years, Sony has struggled to make a dent in the US smartphone market. Aside from the Xperia Z1S on T-Mobile and the Xperia Ultra Google Play Edition, American buyers haven't been exposed to the global Sony smartphone lineup. That's why we were happy to learn last month that T-Mob

We've never quite understood the point of hiring Danny McBride to be in a G-rated movie, since he can't do the sort of foul-mouthed improvisation that he does best. That hasn't deterred Rovio and Sony Pictures from asking him and other comedians for filling out the cast list for Angry Birds: The M

Wherever you look, the PlayStation 4 is outselling the Xbox One by a considerable margin. In fact, Sony sold twice as many consoles in the UK as Microsoft in Destiny's launch week, leaving its rival with another considerable hill to climb. One way Microsoft could claw back some of its lost market

The annual Tokyo Game Show has just wrapped up, and while there weren't any major console announcements, we still had our fair share of memorable moments on the show floor. On top of trying several different virtual reality demos, we also watched Japanese girls giggle away at a romance simulation

With the PlayStation Now beta just opening to a larger chunk of the gaming population, you might be wondering how the streaming service came to Sony in the first place. Why did Gaikai drop its entire PC audience to join a console maker? Thankfully for you, Gaikai chief David Perry has just shed li

Ray Bradbury, the author of Fahrenheit 451, once said: \"Nothing a computer can do can compare to a book.\" For some, the pleasure of flipping through a paperback may never change, but pragmatism is starting to take hold. More people than ever are opting for e-books; the benefits of having a virtual

A lack of its own new PCs to use the service on isn't stopping Sony from bringing its Video Unlimited platform to the web. As the beleaguered electronics outfit notes on the PlayStation Blog of all places, it's playing catch-up king once again and no longer requiring users to download and launch a
