Until a few years ago, it was rare to see Sony abandon its favorite markets and launch new brands. There is Bravo. There is Xperia. There is the Alfa. There is the PlayStation. And there was Vaio, before the laptop line was sold to a Japanese conglomerate. But recently, Sony has been engaging in unexpected segments and stepping out of its comfort zone. We saw it earlier this year with the Linkbuds, fantastic open TWS headphones. And that’s the case today with Inzone, its new brand focused on PC gaming.
