Sony Changes Their Mind, Won't Shut Down Ps3 Or Ps Vita Stores

Sony Changes Their Mind, Won't Shut Down PS3 Or PS Vita Stores

However, it seems that Sony’s decision, while it made sense, was not particularly well-received in the community, leading to an outcry of support for the PS3 and PS Vita. So much so that the company has since been convinced to keep both the stores open, although it seems that this won’t apply to the PSP whose store will shut down on the 2nd of July, 2021 as previously planned.

According to Sony, “When we initially came to the decision to end purchasing support for PS3 and PS Vita, it was born out of a number of factors, including commerce support challenges for older devices and the ability for us to focus more of our resources on newer devices where a majority of our gamers are playing on. We see now that many of you are incredibly passionate about being able to continue purchasing classic games on PS3 and PS Vita for the foreseeable future, so I’m glad we were able to find a solution to continue operations.”

Sony Ps5 Update Adds Support For 120hz Displays

Sony PS5 Update Adds Support For 120Hz Displays

It should be noted that the PS5 already supports 120Hz refresh rate displays, but that support is mostly exclusive to select TVs and not computer monitors. According to Sony’s update, “Some PC monitors that can display 1080p/120 Hz now support 120 Hz display for games. If you’re having trouble viewing your game at 120 Hz, go to Settings > Screen and Video > Video Output, and then turn off Enable 120 Hz Output.”

In addition to supporting 120Hz on 1080p displays, the update will also introduce two new HDMI controls in the console’s settings. One of which is the one-touch play feature which basically turns on a connected TV when you power up the PS5 and switch to the correct input. Then there is also the toggle power off feature that puts the PS5 into rest mode when you turn off the TV connected to the console.

Fujifilm X-H2 Could Be Launching In 2022

When it comes to video, Fujifilm’s mirrorless cameras have typically fallen a little short. While they are capable, they certainly aren’t on par with other brands such as Sony or Panasonic.

For those who might be worried that the company could have decided to kill off the X-H series, it seems that there is some good news on that front because according to a report from Fuji Rumors, they have heard from their source that the X-H2 will be launching in 2022, and that some of the features we can look forward to include 8K DCI/UHD video recording.

The Last Of Us Remake Will Be Coming To The Ps5

The Last of Us Remake Will Be Coming To The PS5

When Sony and Naughty Dog first launched The Last of Us, it was back in 2013. The game was initially designed for the Sony PS3 console, although they later followed up with a remaster for the PS4. Now according to a report from Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, it seems that Sony is looking to remake the game for the PS5.

It’s not often that you see games remade/remastered this many times, but we can’t say we’re surprised. The Last of Us is not only a visually stunning game, but it has a very strong storyline that many seem to love. Creating a version that utilizes the hardware of the PS5 and bringing it to players who might not have played it before actually makes sense.

Apple Reveals That They Killed Plans To Bring Imessage To Android

Apple Reveals That They Killed Plans To Bring iMessage To Android

Back in the day, one of the reasons why BlackBerry was as popular as it was was because of its messenger service, BBM. Back then, all the “cool kids” had BBM and the only way to get BBM was to buy a BlackBerry phone. Now, Apple has tried to replicate this with its iMessage platform, but it seems that at one point in time, they almost brought the feature onto Android.

This is according to the legal proceedings between Apple and Epic where according to the court filings, it was revealed that Apple had acknowledged that they were initially planning to bring iMessage over onto Android, but ultimately decided not to. This was confirmed by Apple exec Eddy Cue, and it was also later revealed by another Apple exec, Craig Federighi, that bringing iMessage to Android could actually be detrimental to the iPhone’s success.

Fujifilm Launches New Instax Mini 40 Instant Camera

There is no doubt that when it comes to photography, digital photography is the most “efficient”.

However, at the same time it’s hard to ignore that nostalgia that one gets when taking film photos.

If you do enjoy the retro and nostalgic vibe of film, then you might be interested in checking out Fujifilm’s latest instant camera, the Fujifilm Instax Mini 40. Fujifilm has been cranking out instant print cameras over the years so it’s no surprise that they’re back with a new model, although unlike the company’s previous efforts, the Instax Mini 40 looks decidedly retro.

Now it looks like that digital assistant got a bit smarter thanks to Spotify introducing a hands-free feature that lets users activate the assistant using a wake word.

The feature was initially spotted by GSMArena who were notified on their phone that Spotify was introducing the feature. Basically whenever the Spotify app is open, all users need to do is say, “Hey Spotify” to launch the digital assistant and command it to do what you want of it, such as playing songs, playlists, and so on.

Check Out The World's Largest (and Functional) Nintendo Switch

Check Out The World's Largest (And Functional) Nintendo Switch

A couple of months ago, we saw how a YouTuber created the world’s largest and functional PS5 console. Not to be outdone, another YouTuber by the name of Michael Pick has decided to do something similar, except that instead of the PS5, he has opted to create the world’s largest and playable Nintendo Switch console.

According to Pick, the reason behind him creating a larger version was because the smaller version was “easy to lose”. “I really like the Nintendo Switch. It’s small, it’s portable — but it’s really easy to lose. And for me, that was a problem. So, I decided to fix that by making something that was just a little bit larger.”
