The tech scene has been continuously bustling with talks about premium smartphones ever since the iPhone X was announced earlier this year. Since then, we’ve had a handful of Apple competitors launching their own versions of the pricey gadget. But there’s also other interesting stuff going on in the tech space aside from this new trend that seems to bank on luring in consumers through perceived luxury. From Sony’s annual event, to smartphone and gadget updates courtesy of Apple and Samsung, we bring you some of the hottest tech news this week.
Sony just concluded the annual PlayStation Experience event where they announce updates to their games, hardware, as well as other future plans for the popular gaming platform. This year, highlights include the company’s push for VR remasters plus tons of gameplay footage for upcoming PS4 titles like Shadow of the Colossus, Soul Calibur VI, Death Stranding, Detroit: Become Human and Guacamelee! 2. The best part though was when they announced the resurrection of undead knight Sir Daniel Fortesque through a glorious 4K remaster of PS1 fan-favorite MediEvil coming in 2018.
Watch the whole event here:
