Sony has announced a new PC gaming gear brand called Inzone, as well as revealing a new lineup of gaming monitors and headsets. 

The gaming monitors and headsets are also compatible with video game consoles. They have a similar aesthetic as the PlayStation 5 with white as the primary color and black s a secondary color.

There are two monitors that will initially be available: The Inzone M9 is a 27-inch 4K monitor with up to 144Hz refresh rates and will launch this summer for $899. The Inzone M3 will launch for $529 and offers 1080p resolution at up to 240 Hz.

Three headsets were announced including the Inzone H9, which is a wireless gaming headset with active noise cancellation and support for 360 spatial sound. It will have 32 hours of battery life, and a recharge time of 10 minutes for up to an hour of use. 

The Inzone H7 headset is a wireless gaming headset with 40 hours of battery, however, it doesn't have the the active noise cancellation. The Inzone H3 is a wired gaming headset with support for 360 spatial sound.

"The market has been expanding with a higher interest in gaming with the spread of e-sports tournaments and the advancement of gaming entertainment," said Sony's Head of Game Business and Marketing Office, Yukihiro Kitajima.

"With Sony’s strong history of high-end audio and visual technology products, we believe this new line will offer even more options for those looking to upgrade their current gaming systems. We are committed to contributing to the growth of gaming culture by providing PC and PlayStation gamers with a wider range of options to enrich lives through gaming."

Monitors cost more than a PS5...

Take it as it is, but if anybody wants to read an in-depth review on the monitor from somebody.

That monitor stand is just terrible... The footprint takes up far to much space for form over function.

4k only for the PC where low response times and framerates tend to be the higher priority is not a good judgement call for the market... Especially as Sony says themselves they are targeting the "E-Sports" demographic.
Any serious E-Sports player will choose a 1080P/1440P panel with upwards of 240hz.

But the styling does fit with the Playstation 5 ecosystem theme, for some people that will definitely be a big draw card.

Certainly the styling will appeal to some. But, I just don't see much of a market for it. First of all, people that care about one millisecond response times are playing on PC, not PS5. And the monitor is not styled to match any gaming PC that I've ever seen. Second, 27 inches is smaller than what most console gamers want. It seems to me that these monitors miss the mark for both PC and console gamers, so I'm not seeing widespread appeal.

The reason a lot of console players play on monitors is exactly for the low response times. Games like Apex, COD etc. Its why a lot of companies like BenQ or Razor have officially licenced PS monitors etc.

Almost no console players use monitors. Like, maybe 1 out of 1000.

Why bother with console specific monitors and the widespread media coverage of monitors for console players, if there's no market for it? The overlap alone between PC/Console players is in the millions.

Actually there are more console players playing on monitors more than ever. Probably every gaming streamer for one. Anybody that games in their bedroom most likely have a PC setup and hooks up their consoles there too. I have a number of friends that game on monitors.

Well theres two models.
The M9 is 4k at 120hz 1ms.
The M3 is 1080p at 240hz 1ms.
The draw of these monitors appears to be the excellent picture quality and lighting, which is apparently better than anything else in that size and price range.

Last I checked, we don't all have a 4k gaming focus on PC. We've got a majority that are in the 1080p-1440p range, some on Ultra wide and a handful for 4k, so I dunno what they are trying to accomplish here by focusing on 4k only and VRR instead of free-sync.

Also due to the last 2 yrs of card shortage, trying to game at 4k native res is gonna be ass, unless you're Nvidia and use DLSS, but even then that's still a stretch to just game at semi 4k.

Yuri said it best on our main thread tbh.

Could there not be a 1440p monitor option because the PS5 currently does not have a 1440p option?

No 1440p option shows how Sony is disconnect from PC gaming community. this and not listening to PS5 gamers for adding 1440p support to PS5 again proves this fact. Even some PS4 Pro players wanted a 1440p option and never got it.
