  • Fact: Halo Wars comes out on February 28

    Microsoft just announced at CES that Halo Wars, the RTS that’s bound to confuse more than a few longtime Halo fans—it’s not a shooter?!—will be released on February 28. A demo will be on Xbox Live on February 5. That is all. Read More

  • Sony is going ECO

    Eco is the new buzzword and there is no escaping at CES this year. There isn’t a CE manufacturer out there that wants to be caught dumping toxic materials into consumers livingrooms; Sony is no different. Updated HCFL backlights helps drop LCD power consumption by almost 40%, an ambient light sensor adjusts the backlight appropriately and a motion sensor turns off the set after a period… Read More

    CES brings big changes to Sony’s camcorder offerings. High-def camcorders are getting big HDDs and there are a bunch to choose from with ranging pricing.

  • Sony didn't get the memo on thin TVs, brought lots of OLEDs to CES

    Sony’s 2009 CES booth is showing off some sick, like sickly sick, thin sets. Primarily are these OLED Proof of Technology models that are dead sexy even to me. Chances are none of these will ever see a Euro snob loft. They are just concepts and there is nothing wrong with that. That thin TV, it’s .9 millimeter thick – or is that thin? Hmmm. Apparently Sony has more OLED news… Read More

  • Sony's new X-Series touchscreen Walkmen are lookin' kinda good

    Sony’s dropped a solid-looking touchscreen Walkman line with the X-Series. I can’t say I’m a big fan of the finish (looks a bit like the kitchen counter), but these tiny Sony players always make up for kind of standard looks with a really polished feel. It comes in 16GB and 32GB flavors, prices to be determined, and does what you’d expect regarding YouTube and that sort… Read More

  • Hands-on with the Sony VAIO P

    My, oh my. The Sony VAIO P is a popular netbook. After using some Peter Ha-taught ninja skills, I made my way through the crowd to this tiny netbook. Overall, the netbook feels Sony solid. The nub was a tad finicky but it works. The resolution though is astoundingly high on the small screen. I love small font but at the default setting it was too small for me. Thankfully the P Series does… Read More
