Samsung's 2020 soundbars include models with Alexa and object tracking

For some, the most interesting models may be the decidedly more affordable Lifestyle models. The S series (pictured above) has a friendlier-looking round design covered in the Kvadrat textiles used for one of Samsung’s Galaxy S20 cases. The S60T also throws in Alexa voice control as well as a wide-range tweeter. That model costs $330, although a simpler S40T is available for $180.

The T series replaces the earlier R series and covers the low-to-mid-range lineup. You won’t find Atmos, Alexa or a special design, but they do pack wireless subs. The higher-end T550 and T650 models are also HDMI-capable and support DTS Virtual:X spatial surround sound. These start at $200 for the no-frills T450 and scale up to $400 for the T650.

Sony delays PlayStation 5 stream due to ongoing protests

Sony has delayed its upcoming PlayStation 5 livestream, which would have seen the company show off gameplay from its upcoming next-generation console. The stream was originally scheduled to start at 4PM ET on June 4th. The company did not say when it plans to air the event.

The decision comes in light of the anti-racism protests across the US. “While we understand gamers worldwide are excited to see PS5 games, we do not feel that right now is a time for celebration and for now, we want to stand back and allow more important voices to be heard,” the company said. The protests were sparked by the death one week ago of 46-year-old George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.

Sony postpones PS5 event due to protests

Sony is postponing its PlayStation 5 event that was scheduled for June 4th due to ongoing protests. “While we understand gamers worldwide are excited to see PS5 games, we do not feel that right now is a time for celebration,” says Sony in a Twitter message

. “And for now, we want to stand back and allow more important voices to be heard.”

Sony is clearly referencing the response to the death of George Floyd in Minnesota, and the resulting protests we’ve seen take place in the US and around the world. Sony had been planning to use Thursday’s event to showcase PS5 games, promising an hour-long event with a first look at some of the games people will be playing when the PlayStation 5 launches this holiday season.

Sony’s decision follows a similar move by EA to delay its Madden NFL 21 event today, and Google’s decision to delay its Android 11 beta announcement. Sony has not yet revealed when the PS5 will now be held.

In fact, Europa Universalis creator Johan Andersson, who has been a part of Paradox Development Studio for over 25 years, will be the studio lead at Barcelona. Paradox Tinto will start by working on the Europa Universalis franchise and then later developer new strategy games.

This expansion for Paradox will create new jobs in the industry.

“The success of our studios over the last few years has allowed us to continually add more capabilities and new ideas, with more games going into active development and more ambitious plans every day,” Paradox chief operating officer Charlotta Nilsson said in the announcement. “We currently have around 70 open positions across our seven studios, with plans to recruit roughly 200 people in 2020 alone.”
