PlayStation Studios Will Enter Mobile Games

Topic: “PlayStation Studios Will Enter Mobile Games” This week, PlayStation Studios president Hermen Hulst announced in a post on the company’s official blog that he will be dedicating some of his commercial efforts to the newly created the PlayStation Studios Mobile division. The Sony’s move also comes with the news that it has bought mobile game developer Savage Game Studios.

Mobile gaming is a vast market. Mobile gaming spending is expected to reach $136 billion this year, according to a report by market analysis firm IDC and This represents more than half of the entire gaming market. Sony, which has long relied on its PlayStation consoles, wants it.

With the development of a physical mobile division, it looks like the company is finally making a legitimate push into the mobile market. (Oddly, the Savage Game Studios hasn’t released any games yet, so we’ll see what they come up with.) The move comes when PlayStation 5 consoles are still very hard to find, and their price is increasing. Also, the company’s PS Plus subscription service is playing catch-up with the Microsoft’s Game Pass. While the PlayStation says it has no plans to put console games behind, it wants to rely on the money. So for the foreseeable future, this is mobile.

Philips just got a brand-new bulb

We love intelligent light bulbs. It lets you add an array of colors – from an endless palette – to your living space with a simple swipe of a companion app. (Or, in my experience, frustrating swears are in black because the app is taking so long to connect to my Wi-Fi.) If you’re willing to drop a pair of hundo on some light bulbs, you have a few new options.

Philips Hue, the reigning champion in the world of intelligent lighting, is launching a new list of bright lights called Light guide. Philips’ latest offering comes in three interlocking Edison-Esque shapes for use in ceiling pendants or ornamental configurations. In addition, there is a round globe, a more triangular onion, and an oval. Unfortunately, they cost between $75 and $85 a pop. (If you want to hang it with Philips-branded wire, that’s another $50.)

The Verge has also detailed the new Philips Hue Play light bar aimed at PC gamers. Place the strips behind your computer screen and set them up to sync up with all the beautiful colors on your screen. PC Play light bars start at $169.

All of these shows can be controlled with the Hue app to change colors or sync with each other around the house. In addition, some updates are coming to the Philips Hue app, like a Mimic Presence feature that will automatically turn on lights if you’re away to make people think you’re home.

Watch Samsung’s new Big Honkin curved gaming monitor

This week, Samsung revealed the screen vortex at the IFA tech conference in the Berlin, Germany. The Odyssey OLED G8 is the Samsung’s first OLED display, an ultra-wide curved screen.

The G8 also has streaming capabilities built in. Like Samsung’s other 2022 intelligent displays, it can stream video from services like Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Prime through an innovative TV interface. It can also stream directly from the cloud gaming services like Xbox Game Pass and GeForce Now without connecting to a computer. The screen also has customizable lighting built into the back, so there’s no need for Philips Hue light strips here.

Samsung has also yet to say how much the screen will cost. However, it should be available later this year.

Twitter circle

This week’s big Twitter news was, of course, the edit button. Hooray, it’s finally there! (For subscribers who pay the company $5 the month for its premium service Twitter Blue, that is.) Unfortunately, that revelation overshadowed some other news that Twitter released a feature that lets you limit who sees your tweets on Monday.

The setting, called Twitter Circle, allows you to give up to 150 followers the privilege of seeing your top-secret tweets. You can adjust who is in your Twitter circle by selecting the dropdown menu that now appears when you go to send the tweet. There, it will allow you to tweet to everyone or those in your circle. Only this exclusive group can view or reply to your Tweet.
