As Christmas is approaching and people are checking their (smart) watches wondering when it’s acceptable to head off to town for Christmas shopping, we’re bringing you the latest from this week in Sony.

Speaking of Christmas, our developer elves have been busy… Over in the US, we introduced the Sony Z Ultra Google Play edition running on KitKat (Android 4.4).

And they’ve also been busy cooking up a treat in the form of a WALKMAN app update that brings you enhanced playlist functionality, playlist sharing functions, 30 second previews in Music Unlimited’s library, and more.

Fancy the new BMW M4 Coupe for Christmas but don’t quite have the budget? No worries! The PlayStation team has been working with the talented people at BMW and as of this week you can test drive the shiny beast in Gran Turismo 6.

From speedy sports cars to Spidey… The Sony Pictures team released the official trailer for The Amazing Spiderman 2 this week, showing Spidey facing an overcharged villain whilst slamming into buildings and casually lifting vehicles. It’s… well… Amazing.

Katherine and the team behind this week’s episode of The Take Out talk about gravity gaming in Naught 2 and how American musician Lovett used 37 directors to make the music video for All the Time.

And finally… If you’ve been slacking and not done your Christmas shopping yet, here’s a list of our top six picks for this holiday season. You’re welcome.

That’s all, enjoy the weekend.
