Sony announces its new Airpeak drone at CES 2021
by Jay Bonggolto
Sony announced today its new drone that it says is built specifically for professional photography and video creation. The Airpeak was unveiled at Sony's CES 2021 presentation.
While this is the first time that the company is showing off its new drone, Airpeak was originally mentioned in a press release from Sony back in November of last year, with a vague description stating it was meant to "support the creativity of video creators". Back then, it was introduced as a drone project in the field of artificial intelligence robotics, with no actual image of what it looked like.
Today, Sony released a video demonstrating the drone in action. Airpeak was used to shoot the road test of Sony's Vision-S all-electric concept sedan in Austria. An α7S III full-frame mirrorless camera was mounted on the drone to capture the vehicle while running.
The Japanese company claims Airpeak is "the industry's smallest class of drone that can be equipped with the Alpha system". It has four rotors and two landing arms that lift when the drone takes off.
Airpeak can perform dynamic filming and stable flight to empower video creators in the field of entertainment with "new possibilities for creative expression". Sony is planning to introduce a new business aimed at photography and video production professionals in the spring as part of the first phase of its drone project.

Sony discontinues most PlayStation 4 models to make room for PlayStation 5
by João Carrasqueira
Sony has put an end to the production of most PlayStation 4 models, according to a report from Japanese website Game Watch. The company has ended production of all models of the PlayStation 4 Pro, the high-end refresh of the console, as well as most models of the PlayStation 4 "Slim", which has been the base unit of the console since 2016.
Looking at the company's Japanese website, only the 500GB PlayStation 4 in Jet Black is now available to buy, with the PlayStation 4 Pro removed from the purchase page altogether. Over in the United States, while the Pro model still shows up, only the base model shows the option to buy (though it's currently out of stock). Production has also seemingly ended for any other color variants of the console.
The discontinuation of these models will allow Sony to repurpose the production lines to make more PlayStation 5 units, as the console has fallen victim to stock shortages. It also makes sense to get rid of the more expensive PlayStation 4 Pro, which officially cost the same as a PlayStation 5 Digital Edition and is significantly less capable.
In fact, Microsoft did the same thing even before the Xbox Series X and S launched. The company discontinued both Xbox One X and the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, leaving only the most affordable and compatible entry point into the Xbox ecosystem, the Xbox One S.
If you were hoping to nab one of the models that's being discontinued, you may want to do it soon, before stock runs out.

Sony announces PlayStation Plus titles for January 2021
by Namerah Saud Fatmi
The names of titles to be added to Sony's monthly PlayStation Plus subscription service next month were announced today. In January 2021, PlayStation 4 owners who have the PS Plus membership will enjoy two freebies for the month. Meanwhile, PS5 users with the subscription will also get one free game.
Starting from January 5, PS4 users with the PS Plus subscription will be able to play action-adventure title Shadow of the Tomb Raider from the wildly popular Tomb Raider franchise. Square Enix debuted the game featuring Lara Croft at E3 2018. As for the second free title for the next month, that will be Greedfall, an ARPG video game developed by Spider and published by Focus Home Interactive. Incidentally, Greedfall also joined the Xbox Game Pass subscription earlier this month.
In addition to the freebies which will be available to PlayStation 4 gamers, Sony also announced that PlayStation 5 users with the PS Plus membership will get to play open-world RPG Maneater free of charge.
As usual, PlayStation Plus subscribers will have about one month to take advantage of their membership and play the free video games. The January 2021 games will be available until February 1, 2021.
