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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
