Sony will show off the first PlayStation 5 games on June 4th

Sony has been dishing out details on the PlayStation 5 piece-by-piece, rather than dropping all of the details at one big mega event. First came word of the Holiday 2020 release window. Then came an overview of the specs — like that it’ll have a super fast solid state drive by default. Most recently, they showed off the controller. (The divvied up approach makes sense, really; with the ongoing pandemic preventing events like E3 and GDC from happening… why wouldn’t Sony work on their own sched...

Microsoft's first pair of true wireless earbuds sound good and fit comfortably, but they fail to truly earn their $200 price tag

  Microsoft's new Surface Earbuds feature above average sound quality, especially when listening to rock music and songs that don't rely on thick bass. Comfort is exceptional, even after several hours of use, and they come with multiple ear tip sizes to fit a wide range of ears. Battery life is strong at eight hours for a single charge and 24 hours using the case to recharge. Considering their $199.99 price tag, however, the Surface Earbuds don't include all the features that a pair of premium...

$500 would be a completely reasonable price for the PlayStation 5. Here's why. (SNE)

The PlayStation 5 is expected to debut later this year, but we still have no idea what it will cost, or what it even looks like. Sony is reportedly struggling to keep the price of the console low. The launch price for the next-gen console likely won't be anywhere close to the $400 price tag of the previous PlayStation 4 console. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The PlayStation 4 has been around since 2013. Personally, it's my most-used piece of technology. And it's about to...

'We had no idea how to do it': YouTube's founders, investors, and first employees tell the chaotic inside story of how it rose from failed dating site to $1.65 billion video behemoth (GOOG, GOOGL)

YouTube's cofounders originally thought "a generic platform where we could host all the videos on the internet" was too bold of an idea. So for about a week, the site was a dating platform — until it wasn't.  Fifteen years later, YouTube still reigns as the leader in video, but the climb to the top wasn't easy.  "What's hard to appreciate is how quickly we had grown beyond our capacity to manage the business," said Zahavah Levine, then YouTube's general counsel and vice president of business d...

Sony’s ZV-1 compact camera zooms in on vloggers

Sony has taken aim at the suddenly enormous market of people who want to self-produce high-quality video with a minimum of setup. Its ZV-1 mutates the versatile RX100 series into a selfie video machine, and it could be the all-in-one solution many a vlogger has been searching for. The new camera is very much based on the highly successful and acclaimed RX100, which over the years has grown in both price and capabilities but remains something the user is behind, rather than in front of. The ZV...

Microsoft's Xbox is already crushing Sony's PlayStation when it comes to creating the 'Netflix of gaming' — and it has huge implications for next-gen consoles (MSFT, SNE)

Like movies, TV, and music before it, the video game industry is currently going through a paradigm shift toward subscription services. Microsoft's Xbox has Xbox Game Pass, and Sony's PlayStation has PlayStation Now — subscription services that offer access to an evolving library of games. Despite the massive success of Sony's PlayStation 4, with over 100 million sold, just 2.2 million people are using PlayStation Now. Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass service has over 10 million users, and estimates...

With 170M users, Bilibili is the nearest thing China has to Youtube

Bilibili, a Chinese video streaming website that was once regarded as a haven for youth subculture, has been steadily making its way into the mainstream as users age up and content diversifies.

Daily time spent per user soared to a record of 87 minutes, which is likely linked to the e...

The OnePlus 8 is the iPhone 11 of the Android world: maximum power and almost everything you want for a lower price tag

  The $700 OnePlus 8 is the $700 iPhone 11 of the Android world — it's missing a few features, but comes with the same power as the top models.  To bring its price tag down to $700 when most high end phones cost around $1,000, the OnePlus 8 technically concedes on screen resolution and smoothness, memory (RAM) standards, wireless charging, and camera quality. Except for the lack of wireless charging, I never perceived or felt any of these concessions during normal use and testing.  The OnePlu...

US video game sales have record quarter, as consumers stay at home

New numbers from NPD confirm what we’ve known for a while: the first quarter of 2020 was a very good one for gaming companies. The new report notes that sales hit a record $10.86 billion in the States between January and March of this year, marking a 9% increase over a year prior. $9.58 billion of that figure was from video game content.

Sony shows off first combination image sensor and AI chip

Sony has developed an interesting new hybrid technology: An image sensor with AI processing system built into the hardware, making it a single integrated system. The benefits and applications for this are potentially enormous as imagery and code continue to merge. The idea is fairly simple in concept. You take a traditional CMOS image sensor like you’d find in any phone or camera today, and stack it on top of a logic chip that’s built not just for pulling pixels off the sensor but for operati...
