They don’t call them “video” games for nothing. Sure there are a lot of factors that go into making a game great, from the controls to the sound design to the writing to the creativity of the mechanics. But don’t kid yourself. If a game is visually stunning that can get a lot of players to forgive some of its other shortcomings. And unless you’re playing on a PC monitor or a handheld device, the way you’ll be seeing those gorgeous graphics is on a television.

A great TV can also go a long towards helping a game’s beauty shine through. Not all sets are created equal, and the right TV with the right settings can mean the difference between a dull, washed-out image and a vibrant colorful one. Today’s TV standard is of course 4K, the next evolutionary leap in resolution over 1080p HD. 4K TVs were once so expensive they weren’t worth it, especially since there was barely any 4K content to enjoy aside from sample nature documentary discs. But now pretty much any premium TV from you can get, from all varieties of #brands, displays in 4K, and devices like video game consoles have the power to make those TVs worth your while.

Gamers with any machines could get use out of these 4K TVs. But since the PlayStation 4 is still the dominant console of this generation, and its enhanced model the PlayStation 4 Pro supports 4K, let’s call this list the best TV for PS4 Pro. For in-depth Editors’ Choice reviews of all these televisions read the extensive reviews on our sister site PCMag.com.

Samsung Q9FN QLED Smart 4K UHD TV

Samsung wants to dominate in any tech space it enters, from smartphones to smart refrigerators. So of course its 4K LCD smart TV is one of the best models you can get in that category and one of the best TVs for PS4 Pro. Read more on PCMag.com.

LG OLED65E8PUA

Arguably even more so than movies or TV shows, video games benefit from wider ranges of colors and contrast, which this LG TV excellently delivers on making it one of the best TVs for PS4 Pro. Read more on PCMag.com.

TCL 65R617

A thousand dollars is still a lot of money, but considering how much other 4K TVs cost (and how much phones now costs) a thousand dollars is a steal for a smart TV as capable as this TCL model. Even if it’s for “professionals,” plenty of kids still game on PS4 Pro. So maybe the best TVs for PS4 Pro shouldn’t wipe out their college savings? Read more on PCMag.com.

Vizio M65-E0

An another affordable option, this Vizio model is what I personally am interested in as I’ve been playing on Vizio TVs for years. And this TV, one of the best TVs for PS4 Pro, continues the tradition of not sacrificing quality performance to hit that lower price. Read more on PCMag.com.

SunBriteTV Veranda Series SB-4374UHD

The stereotypical image of a gamer is some dude hunched alone indoors in the dark by himself. Rebel against those harmful images by playing outside, and with this weatherproof, dust-sealed outdoor TV from SunBrite you can safely do just that. It’s a more niche use, but that’s still cool enough to be one of the best TVs for PS4 Pro. Read more on PCMag.com.

This Emotional Lexus Ad Was Written by an AI

‘Tis the season to tug at audience heartstrings with tear-inducing commercials (I’m looking at you, John Lewis).

But Lexus took things a step further this week when it introduced the world’s first ad scripted entirely by artificial intelligence.

Trained by IBM’s Watson on 15 years’ worth of award-winning luxury advertisements and human emotional responses, the bespoke AI managed to keep its message original and on-brand.

“When I was handed the script, the melodrama of the story convinced me of its potential,” director Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland, State of Play, Whitney) said in a statement.

The minute-long film tells the tale of a Takumi master craftsman, fresh off his latest creation, the Lexus ES sedan.

Like a parent seeing their child off to college, the engineer releases his vehicle into the wild—only for it to be taken away and threatened with destruction. But at the crucial moment, the car’s automatic emergency braking system kicks in, saving it (and the craftsman) from devastation.

“The fact that AI gave a fellow machine sentience, placed it in a sort of combat situation, and then had it escaping into the sunset was such an emotional response from what is essentially a digital platform,” Macdonald said.

This project is a collaboration between The&Partnership London, Visual Voice, IBM Watson, and the University of New South Wales’ MindX division.

“From the outset, it was almost impossible to know what level of quality or intelligibility the AI would produce,” Visual Voice co-founder Alex Newland said. “To see the project brought together with such a rich finished piece is extremely satisfying and exciting to witness.”

The “Driven by Intuition” film was created using a bespoke AI (via Lexus)

AI-generated text is still very much a work in progress: 2017 produced a handful of trial runs, including a seven-minute movie co-starring David Hasselhoff, a magical new Harry Potter book chapter, and one final Scrubs monologue (performed by Zach “JD” Braff himself).

The latest from Lexus, however, may help push machine learning to the forefront of entertainment and marketing.

“I thought I’d be writing an ad with the assistance of AI,” Dave Bedwood, creative partner at The&Partnership, said. “Instead it took over and wrote the whole script: a machine telling the story of a machine coming to life.

“Much AI work to date has been interesting because of the process itself,” he continued. “This has been because the end product is good in its own right.”

Elon Musk Renames SpaceX’s Monster Rocket–Again

When you own four companies and are the 54th-richest person in the world, you can do whatever you want—including change the name of your space-bound rocket.

Elon Musk this week announced he is “renaming” SpaceX’s Big Falcon Rocket (also known as Big F*****g Rocket, or BFR) to Starship.

He tweeted the news on Monday, later clarifying that “Starship” is the name of the spaceship itself; the rocket booster will be called Super Heavy.

Fans responded with requests for more information, queries about the change, and a few choice words for the South African entrepreneur.

One eagle-eyed follower pointed out that the name is erroneous, “unless this ‘starship’ is sent on a mission to another star system.”

“Later versions will,” Musk wrote in a response, teasing a future in which the spacecraft may leave the Solar System. Our closest known neighbor is Alpha Centauri, some 4.3 light-years from Earth.

Another suggested this may not be the last time this spaceship is rebranded.

The BFR, er, Starship, is designed to be a sustainable interplanetary spaceship.

A whopping 387 feet tall, the monster vehicle could one day make obsolete the rest of SpaceX’s fleet.

Built for up to 100 people, its first trip will carry only a skeleton crew—including Yusaku Maezawa, the first private citizen to travel beyond low-Earth orbit.

The 42-year-old Japanese billionaire will assemble a band of virtuosos—painters, photographers, musicians, film directors, fashion designers, architects—to accompany him on a round-the-Moon mission.

“All our resources will turn toward building BFR,” Musk said in 2017, estimating the company will need about $5 billion to get the ship off the ground. An undisclosed chunk of that money comes straight from Maezawa’s ticket.

Americans Are Checking Their Phones More Than Ever

for innovative and exceptional clothing for men, women, and kids. Browse stylish, affordable, high-quality basics that are simple, essential and universal.

Like most people, my smartphone is an extension of me: It’s the first thing I see after I wake up and one of the last things I see before I go to sleep. It sits on my desk as I work, in my pocket while I travel, and in my hand when I make a cup of tea.

And I know I’m not alone.

According to consulting firm Deloitte, Americans are viewing their smartphones more often than ever before—on average 52 times per day, up 6 percent from last year.

The unsurprising data was revealed as part of the UK-based firm’s 2018 Global Mobile Consumer Survey, which confirms the central role of handsets in the connected ecosystem.

One of the only gadgets (aside from smartwatches) to gain market penetration over the last year, smartphones have become a primary form of online access for 20 percent of U.S. adults.

After all, who needs traditional broadband service when you’ve got a mobile connection and Wi-Fi?

“This year’s survey really advances the story of smartphones as the true center of our lives, both inside and outside the home,” Deloitte Vice Chairman Kevin Westcott said in a statement.

“The smartphone remains the go-to device for consumers,” he continued, “enabling them to do anything they desire: communicate, work, socialize, consume entertainment, stay fit, or take take of things at home.”

But the first step is admitting you have a problem. And many people have.

Nearly 40 percent of Americans think they use their smartphone too much, Deloitte said; a whopping 60 percent of 18- to 34-year-olds concede to mobile overuse.

And while 63 percent of folks claim they’re trying to limit handset usage, only a little more than half are succeeding.

“While smartphones are becoming the nerve center of our homes, our businesses, our families, and our lives, consumers are craving more speed and responsiveness as their usage patterns mature,” according to Mic Locker, a managing director in Deloitte’s Technology, Media, and Telecommunications industry practice.

“It will be interesting to watch the availability of 5G networks and 5G-enabled smartphones over the next year to see if consumers’ yearning for better performance is satisfied,” she added.

That’s not the only thing smartphone-addicted Americans desire: A majority of folks also worry about keeping their personal data private.
