Sony's new hardware brand might target PC players but it's perfect for PS5

Sony has just launched a PC-centric range of monitors and headsets that PlayStation console owners will definitely want to get their hands on.

Say hello to Inzone – the new brand of PC gaming peripherals from Sony. The collection currently consists of two pretty snazzy gaming monitors, and three headsets. It's not a total surprise, given that news of the headsets leaked last week, while the monitors' existence slipped out into the world not long before the press release dropped.

All of the hardware is compatible with both the PS5 and Xbox Series X, but the white and black colorways will sit alongside Sony's console perfectly. In fact, both monitor stands look like little mini versions of PS5. Adorable.

There's an ad which, in true Sony style, shows off barely anything product-related. We get a few seconds of a gamer settling in for a session, tweaking their lovely new monitor, before they're galivanting around a CGI landscape. With nary a piece of Inzone kit in sight. Take a look:  

The cat's a cute addition, but I'm not really a fan of these types of commercials. Especially when they feature a good dose of nightmare fuel. Imagine this monstrosity swooping down at you in the middle of the night.

The three headsets will be available from July at various retailers, while the monitors have a more vague release date of 'summer 2022' for the Inzone M9, and 'winter 2022' for the M3. The latter is still waiting on a price too.

On the monitor front, it's worth noting that the Inzone M9 boasts both a 144Hz refresh rate and 4K resolution. It's a rarity, but it'll happily fit in with our roundup of best 4K 144Hz monitors, I'm sure. Now onto the specs and prices!

Pictured above, from left to right, are the Inzone M3 and Inzone M9 gaming monitors. They do look incredibly similar but I promise it's two shots of different products. It's also worth noting that while the headsets are on Sony's Australian site, the monitors aren't. So there's no pricing or release date info for this region right now.

The Inzone M3 and Inzone M9 are very similar models, so the choice will ultimately boil down to whether you want to fork out for a 144Hz / 4K monitor.

While Sony is targeting PC gamers with its Inzone branded collection, PS5 owners should definitely peruse the peripherals. The colorways are just begging to be paired with your black and white monolith. 

Everything is available to pre-oder now with the exception of the Inzone M3, but you can bookmark the page and check back to see when they open up.
