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.
With the Nissan Z Proto officially revealed, a lot of questions have been answered. We know what it looks like, and it looks quite good. We know it will have a twin-turbo V6 and manual and automatic transmission options, which also sounds good. But it also raises many questions, since the company didn't give many specifics. One of those is, what is it going to be called? Yes, it will have a Z in the name, but there are numbers and maybe even an extra letter to determine! We don't have a final answer to that, but we have some ideas for what it could or perhaps should be called.
Whatever the Z Proto is called, it will almost certainly derive its numbers from its engine. Ever since its introduction, the engine displacement has dictated the name of the Z. The 240Z had a 2.4-liter engine, the 260Z a 2.6 and even up to today, the 370Z has a 3.7-liter engine. While Nissan hasn't given specifics about the twin-turbo engine, we have a good feeling it's probably a version of the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 used in the Infiniti Q50. As such, the new Z would logically have 300 in the name.
PARIS — Renault's new sports division Alpine will enter the 2021 World Endurance Championship, a series whose jewel in the crown is the Le Mans 24 Hours, the brand's general manager said on Monday.
Loss-making Renault's new chief executive, Luca de Meo, sees Alpine as central to the carmaker's recovery and this month announced Renault's Formula One team will be rebranded as Alpine next year.
Japan's chief cabinet secretary, one of the candidates vying for leadership of the main ruling party, says the consumption tax rate will need to be raised as the country's population is shrinking.
Suga Yoshihide made the remark in a commercial TV program on Thursday. He is one of three candidates seeking to win the leadership election of the Liberal Democratic Party on Monday. The winner is almost certain to become the next prime minister, replacing Abe Shinzo, who is stepping down for health reasons.
Microsoft recently unveiled its Xbox Series S console. Priced at $299, it is one of Microsoft’s cheapest consoles to date, especially for a next-gen console, and if you were worried about performance, it seems that you might not need to worry too much. This is because according to The Verge’s Tom Warren, it will be faster than the PS5.
According to Warren, it has been confirmed by Microsoft that the Series S and the more expensive Series X will use the same CPU, albeit at different clock speeds. The Series S will be clocked at around 3.6GHz, making it about 0.1GHz faster than the PS5. Of course at such a marginal difference, gamers might not even notice, but on paper, it’s actually impressive.
It has been rumored for a while now that Sony could have a new mirrorless camera in the works. This camera is thought to be an entry-level full-frame camera that will be part of Sony’s A7 series, which some have dubbed as the Sony A7c. If you’re wondering about the camera, you won’t have to wait much longer.
This is because Sony has announced that on the 15th of September, they will be holding an event in which a new camera will be announced. The company stopped short of confirming the rumors or the name of the upcoming camera, but we expect that those details will be revealed in the coming week.
PARIS — French carmaker Renault will develop and assemble the next generation of partner Nissan's Micra models, a senior executive at the Japanese firm said, as the two companies try to reboot their alliance with tighter cooperation in production.
Ashwani Gupta, Nissan's chief operating officer, said in an interview with France's Le Monde newspaper published on Monday that the Micra plan was an example of their "leader-follower" strategy, with one firm taking the lead on certain car types.
Once Android 11 rolls out, the list of phones that can use wireless Android Auto will grow considerably. Google has updated Android Auto's FAQ page (as spotted by 9to5Google) to add that almost all devices installed with the upcoming mobile OS will get the capability to connect to compatible in-car entertainment systems without a wire.
The updated page also notes that your phone must support 5GHz WiFi for wireless connection to work. Most modern smartphones can already do that, so you won't have an issue unless you have an older or a low-end to mid-range device, some of which can only connect to 2.4GHz WiFi. Take note, however, that the EU has additional regulatory requirements when it comes to using 5GHz WiFi in cars.
Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga Yoshihide says the government will continue to do its best to contain the coronavirus and protect people's lives and health.
Suga said the government has been dealing with the challenge of containing the outbreak since January. He said it will continue to work hard to prevent the explosive increase in infections that has been seen in the US and some European countries.
One of the nifty features of the iOS and macOS ecosystem is that they all work hand in hand. This is especially useful if you have a new device and need to connect to the WiFi, in which you can actually sync the password of the WiFi network from an older device with the new one, saving you some time.
The good news is that it looks like Google wants the same thing for Android and Chrome OS where based on the comments made by developers, it seems that soon Google will enable WiFi password syncing between Android and Chrome OS devices. This means that if you’re connected to someone’s WiFi network and don’t want to bother them for the password, or if you forgot your password, you can use this sync feature to connect the new device to the network.
