Sony looks beyond the PlayStation 5 with its own brand of PC gaming gear
 

 
Sony is launching two PC gaming monitors and three headsets under a new brand called Inzone.

The move pits Sony against established players in PC gaming hardware like Lenovo and Razer.

It also gives the company a way of expanding its video game



Sony is launching its own range of gaming-focused computer monitors and headsets, hoping to tap into the lucrative high-end PC gaming market as it looks beyond its main PlayStation console brand.

Called Inzone, Sony's PC gaming lineup features two monitors. The Inzone M9 monitor is the priciest of the pair, retailing at $900. It features a 27-inch display with 4K resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate — meaning a smoother picture. A less expensive model, the $530 Inzone M3, has a higher refresh rate but lower resolution.

The Inzone M9 will be available this summer, while the Inzone M3 won't be released until winter.

As for headsets, Sony said it will release three in total: The Inzone H9 ($300), Inzone H7 ($230) and Inzone H3 ($100). They're currently available for pre-orders, though Sony hasn't yet provided a release date.

The priciest of the three, the Inzone H9, is wireless and features noise canceling technology as well as an "ambient sound" mode that picks up on sounds in your surroundings. The Inzone H7 is cheaper and lacks noise canceling, but it comes with more battery life — up to 40 hours, versus 32 hours with the Inzone H9. The Inzone H3, meanwhile, has to be plugged into your computer with a cable.

The move pits Sony against established players in the PC gaming hardware space, including Lenovo, ASUS and Razer.

It also gives the company a way of expanding its video game business beyond its PlayStation console gaming division. Sony said it wants to take advantage of growth in the esports space.

"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 Yukihiro Kitajima, head of game business at Sony.

"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."

Sony continues to face fierce competition from longtime rival Microsoft, which has adopted a strategy of making aggressive acquisitions to build out its reach in an industry that's set to be worth almost $200 billion in 2022, according to forecasters Newzoo.

Both companies are betting big on a buzzy concept in tech known as the "metaverse," which involves vast immersive digital worlds where people can work or find entertainment. Earlier this year, Sony revealed a new virtual reality headset called PlayStation VR2.

I'm surprised they haven't been doing this already.

We know they have quality panels and headphones, I would have just a*sumed they had a line of gaming monitors and headsets.

Xbots wants this to be true so bad, but there no future in which Sony give up their position of power as a hardware manufacturer of console gaming, unless developing consoles becomes too expensive. They're not in a desperate position to sell their games at all cost like Microsoft.

The beauty of their potential is that they can leverage their position of owning majority of console market revenue while also dipping their toes in mobile and pc gaming. There wont be a ps5 shortage forever and not many young people can afford 3500+ rigs.

It’s been a minute since Sony was making monitors but it makes sense since they are supporting pc officially

Funny thing is the monitor looks like a ps5 but the ps5 doesn’t have gsync or freesync support lol 😂

Knowing Sony and the sh*t they did with Sony PSP Memory Cards. Them memory cards was expensive as sh*t mane.

They gonna overprice the fu*k out of these things compared to the competition and only a few gonna buy. Then when sales dip and no one buying them, you will see them soon in the clearance section.

That's just my a*sumption,I may be wrong,I hope they don't do a repeat. That PSP memory card price still gives me nightmares.

I know some idiot gonna call me broke,I'm not broke.

What does an Xbot have to do with being a PC owner? With chip shortages still lasting until next year and maybe even further Sony is gonna have to do something to sell their software. Their highest selling PS4 games account for at the most 10% of Playstation consoles sales and with PS5 sitting at 20M, 2M copies isn't going to cut it.

The semiconductor issue is a lot worse than you think. It's gonna last for up to 2 more years and Sony can't afford to deal with low sales so they need to find a way to sell more software and moving to the PC is their best bet. And you won't need a $3500 rig, especially with the next generation of CPU's and GPU' s in the horizon.

LG C1 series. It supports true HDMI 2.1 on multiple ports and offers some of the best picture quality. If you can wait the new gen of QD OLED TVs offer the best quality of any TV out now but at a price but you won't have to worry about burn in.
