Sony Teases New God Of War Title For Ps5

Sony Teases New God Of War Title For PS5

The last time Sony released a new God of War title for the PlayStation platform was back in 2018. However, the title released back then marked a slightly different approach Sony has taken in the past, where Kratos would be the main character. Instead, in this particular release, we saw Kratos share the spotlight with his son.

For those who love the God of War franchise and would like to see a new title, you might be in luck because towards the end of Sony’s PS5 event, a logo appeared on the screen that teased the next God of War title that would be coming to the PS5 in 2021. It will be a direct sequel to the 2018 title, but beyond the release date, not much else is known about the game for now.

Sony recently announced its PS5 where it is priced at $499 for the regular version, and $399 for the digital version. However, both versions will come with a single controller, also known as the DualSense controller, so what if you wanted to play a local co-op game with your friends? You’d need to buy a new controller.

So the question is, how much will a new DualSense controller cost you? According to Sony, DualSense controllers will be priced at $70 each. This isn’t too expensive, but it’s an additional cost you might want to take note of if you were planning on buying the PS5 and plan to play local co-op games with your friends.

As for other markets, the console will be available for the rest of the world on the 19th of November, save for China where according to Sony, “PS5 launch date for China is still under exploration and will be announced at a later date.”

In terms of pricing, it seems that the PS5 will indeed be more expensive than its predecessor. According to Sony’s pricing, the PS5 will be priced at $500 for the version that accepts discs, but if you don’t mind downloading all your games digitally, the Digital Edition of the PS5 will cost $400, so you’ll be able to save yourself $100 in the process.

Sony Might End Up Producing Less PS5 Consoles Than Expected

A report from a couple of months ago suggested that to meet the demand of gamers stuck at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, Sony could actually boost its PS5 production.

The report claims that Sony might end up producing about 4 million less units than previously expected. The company had reportedly initially aimed to produce as many as 15 million units for the fiscal year, but now with the cuts, they are only expected to produce as many as 11 million units.

Sony A7c Is A Full-frame Camera Stuffed Into A Compact Body

Sony A7c Is A Full-Frame Camera Stuffed Into A Compact Body

One of the upsides of using a mirrorless camera over a DSLR is that generally speaking, mirrorless cameras are smaller and lighter which makes them easier to carry around. Sony’s A7 series of mirrorless cameras are relatively compact, but the company does make even more compact models.

This creates a conundrum for photographers who want the power of the A7 series, but want a smaller body. Sony has since introduced a solution to that problem in the form of the newly-announced Sony A7c. This is a full-frame mirrorless camera that has been stuffed into a compact body similar to that of Sony’s A6000 series.

In the past few months, we’ve seen how various camera makes such as Fujifilm, Canon, and Olympus release software for computers that easily turns their cameras into webcams without the need for third-party software or capture cards. Sony was missing from that list, but not anymore.

Sony has since released the Imaging Edge Webcam software that will turn compatible Sony cameras into webcams quickly and easily. All you need to do is download the software from Sony’s website, connect it to your computers, and you’re good to go! For now, the software only supports Windows 10, and we’re not sure if there are plans to eventually support macOS as well, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the version of macOS were to arrive later.

Sony reported its fiscal first quarter results last week covering the three months to 30 June 2020. The actual performance for Sony's mobile business was not that interesting – Sony shipped 0.8 million smartphones, a slight decline from the 0.9 million units sold in the same period last year.
