Sony doubles PlayStation 4 storage ahead of big game releases

Follows announcements made last week at the E3 gaming expo

Momentum is building up for the PlayStation 4. Next generation consoles launch on a wave of hype and then slow down until top gaming titles are released onto the market.

Then, when the big games come, the console takes a price hit or gets a bump up in hardware; the latter of which is the case with Sony’s PlayStation 4.

The Japanese gaming giant is releasing the PlayStation 4 Ultimate Player Edition, a version of its console that comes with twice the storage at 1 terabyte.

Its launch follows the release of Batman: Arkham Knight, which goes on sale today in Australia, and will precede that of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which after years in development, will go on sale 1 September.

Many announcements were made last week at the E3 expo, the largest gaming convention in the world. Sony unveiled The Last Guardian, previewed a remake of Final Fantasy VII and showcased Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

The revised Sony console will go on sale 15 July at a retail price of $549.95.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
