Half a year since launch, and it’s still a challenge for a lot of us to get our hands on a next-gen console. Sony has reportedly said there will be supply constraints for the rest of the year, but we didn’t even need to be told. If you’ve tried to buy an Xbox Series X or PS5, you’ve probably had to shop around (online, mostly) for stock. And get very lucky.
What have you missed out on? Fortunately, not that much so far. According to Jessica Conditt, our newest consoles are still finding their feet, with Sony and Microsoft’s differing approaches still yet to yield anything conclusive. While Xbox has Game Pass, the PlayStation has the early exclusives (like Returnal) — enough, in fact, to warrant the debut of our guide to the best games on PS5. As you might expect, yep, there are some games in there you can play on your PS4, but the new console just does them better.

The latter stores data related to the car’s speed, acceleration, as well as seat belt and airbag status.
Leaked images suggest they’ll look vastly different from the terrific WF-1000XM3.

According to a leak, the next-gen buds could look a little different. Images obtained by The Walkman Blog suggest that, although the WF-1000XM4 will ditch the flatter design for a rounded outer shape, they could protrude less from your ears.
