As the synergy between Sony’s subsidiaries seems to be increasing, the Japanese giant is planning a new line of consumer electronics under the brand name INZONE. This one, according to journalist Tom Hendersonwill initially include three new headsets and two gaming monitors, the first of which is already beginning to leak.
It is mainly the monitors that caught our attention, because that was several years ago the company launched the PlayStation 3D Display, who marketed it in tandem with its company-wide stereoscopic push. The panels, which the company will reportedly call “perfect for PS5,” will be available in 4K and 1080p variants and will have some unique features.
In addition to the low latency you’d expect from a gaming monitor, they’ll also apparently include “gaming assist features” such as a frames-per-second ticker, HDR tone mapping and an “auto genre picture mode”. We’re assuming the latter will automatically switch between different settings depending on what you’re playing – assuming you enable the feature, of course.
There will also be some form of brightness equalizer, which will reportedly help with your visibility in dark areas. And you can keep track of your playing time, if you want. All of these features sound kind of disposable to us, but they’re bullet points that we presume will help the organization bring them to market alongside the console.
It’s not just monitors, though. As mentioned, the company is also releasing a trio of headsets under the INZONE umbrella. These have already been leakedand all follow the same design philosophy. The INZONE H3 is said to be a cheap, wired headset, with 360-degree spatial sound. It is followed by the INZONE H7, which is wireless, while the INZONE H9 is the more premium choice, with noise cancellation.
All items will be announced next week, with rumors of a premium, professional DualSense also whirling. With Sony now offering a direct point of sale through its Playstation Direct website, it will be interesting to see if it increases its output of peripherals and accessories. In the previous generation, it was outsourced to manufacturers like Nacon, but it always felt like a mistake not to buy more items like this – especially when you consider the company’s robust electronics division.
