Rumor: Sony set to reveal ‘perfect for PS5’ gaming monitors

While the synergy between the subsidiaries of Sony seems set to strengthen, the Japanese giant is preparing a new line of consumer electronics under the INZONE brand. According to journalist Tom Henderson, this will initially cover three new headsets and two gaming monitors – the first of which has already started to leak.

It was the monitors that caught our attention first and foremost, as it’s been several years since the company launched the PlayStation 3D display, which it released in conjunction with its company-wide stereoscopic push. The panels, which the firm will advertise as “perfect for the PS5”, will be available in 4K and 1080p variants, and will have unique features.

In addition to the low latency you’ve come to expect from a gaming monitor, they’ll also include “gaming assist features” such as a frame-per-second ticker, HDR tone mapping, and “game assist mode”. ‘automatic gender image’. We assume 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 supposedly help your visibility in dark areas. And you can track your playing time, if you want. All of these features seem quite disposable to us, but they are chips that we believe will help the organization bring them to market alongside its console.

They’re not just monitors, though. As mentioned, the company is also releasing a trio of headsets, under the INZONE umbrella. These have leaked before and 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 are expected to be announced next week, with rumors of a premium pro-grade DualSense also swirling. With Sony now offering a direct point-of-sale storefront through its PlayStation Direct website, it will be interesting to see if it ramps up its production of peripherals and accessories. In the previous generation, it outsourced to manufacturers like Nacon, but it always seemed like a mistake not to bring more of these types of items in-house, especially considering the robust electronics department of the company.
