6 things from CES 2021 that gamers need to see

CES 2021 is over for another year, and if you missed any of it we're here with a lightning-fast recap of all the best bits. We've distilled all that techy goodness down to the six announcements from the show that gamers can't afford to miss.

There's Razer's first facemask, a cutting edge bit of COVID protection that enhances your voice and, of course, comes with RGB lighting. Sony showed off a whole batch of new televisions including the Bravia XR, the "world's first TVs with cognitive intelligence," that adjust the settings of the image you're seeing as you're watching. 

Nvidia talked about the performance and BAR technology of its new GeForce RTX 3060, and LG and Asus both revealed their offerings for next-gen TV and monitors. The Lenovo Lavie Mini prototype was like a Nintendo Switch and a laptop had a beautiful baby, and PlayStation let slip some all-important release dates for upcoming games. We didn't get the PS5 SSD we had been hoping for, but we're sure we'll get more on that from Sony soon.

Between Official PlayStation Magazine, GamesIndustry.biz and Rolling Stone I've picked up a wide range of experience, from how to handle the madness of E3 to making easy conversation with CEOs and executives of game companies over seafood buffets. At GamesRadar+ I'm proud of the impact I've had on the way we write news, and now - as managing editor in the US - the huge traffic successes we're seeing. Most of all I'm proud of my team, who have continued to kick ass through the uncertainty of 2020 and into 2021, and are what makes GamesRadar+ so special.
