Sony’s PlayStation is one of the most successful video game consoles in history, with millions of units sold worldwide. It has often stood out against competitors, always coming out as the top pick for console fans.
Sony has been making a major shift towards PC gaming in recent years. In an effort to stay competitive, they’ve developed new gadgets to help achieve their goal.
The company has revealed that it is launching its own gaming computer monitors and headsets, hoping to make a mark in the PC gaming space.
Sony’s new Inzone monitors are set to be released soon.
The Inzone M9 monitor is a high-end gadget that retails for $900.
The Inzone M9 27-inch monitor is a 4K resolution and 144Hz refresh rate gadget that justifies its price.
The Inzone M3 is a solid choice for those on a budget. While it sacrifices screen resolution, the higher refresh rate makes up for any visuals lost in terms of quality with this monitor’s affordability ($530) and accessibility.
In the summer, Sony will release the M9 monitor with a follow-up on the M3 sometime in winter.
Sony’s headset lineups include the Inzone H9, Inzone H7, and Inzone H3.
The three headsets are available for pre-order, but the company hasn’t revealed a release date yet.
The Inzone H9 is a high-end model that costs $300. It offers a wireless feature with noise canceling technology and an “ambient sound” mode which picks up on what the user hears to provide an immersive experience.
The H7 is a good choice for those who need their headphones to last longer than 32 hours. Although it lacks the noise-canceling feature, it also comes with a 40 hour battery life.
The Inzone H3 is a wired device that only works with the cable plug and costs $100.
The decision by Sony to venture into the PC gaming hardware space pits it against some of more prominently established brands like Lenovo, ASUS, and Razer. This opportunity allows them not only to branch out but also get involved with esports as well.
“The market has been expanding with a higher interest in gaming with the spread of e-sports tournaments and the advancement of gaming entertainment,” said Sony head of game business Yukihiro Kitajima.
“With Sony’s strong history of high-end audio and visual technology products, we believe this new line will offer even more options for those looking to upgrade their current gaming systems.”
