To further the gaming experience, Sony has incorporated the same Dual Noise Sensor Technology used in the Industry-Leading 1000X series headphones for invincible gaming. Users will never miss important ambient sounds such as a phone call, the doorbell ringing or a partner speaking while playing games with Ambient Sound Mode.
The INZONE M9 monitor provides Auto HDR Tone Mapping 8 , which works with PlayStation®5 consoles to automatically recognize the monitor during initial setup and optimizes HDR settings. Additionally, the monitor will automatically switch to Cinema Mode when watching movies on PlayStation®5 and Game Mode when playing games. INZONE H9 and INZONE H7 include on-screen indication, so players can easily adjust settings on their headset and see the settings reflected on the screen in the PlayStation®5 Control Center, along with gaming and chat balance, allowing players to change the volume balance between game audio and voice chat from the headset. It also comes packed with features including the ability to work with Tempest 3D Audio Tech, which allows players to enjoy the immersive sounds when gaming with greater spatial expression.

In the biggest championship college esports can offer, the University of St. Thomas-Houston's League of Legends (LoL) esports team took first place in the 2022 College LoL Championship in Los Angeles over the weekend, winning $50,000 in prize money. St. Thomas dominated the field. The other seven top teams were Maryville University Western University Bay State College Converse College University of California-Irvine Michigan State and defending champs Winthrop University .
At one point, Maryville , known as a powerhouse, had the Celts on the precipice of defeat, but in the last two team fights, UST held its base, then rallied. In no time, St. Thomas' standout ADC, Gil Meron , found an angle and got a quadra kill, defeating four players in rapid succession. That brilliance allowed UST to complete the turnaround, secure the match and ride the momentum to victory.
UST Assistant Director of Esports Justin Pelt said, "It was a tough prove-yourselves tournament for the players. You're talking about a week-long competition where you're in a hotel room and managing a heavy schedule with media, covid testing and the matches. It really takes the best team to handle all that. The matches are the culmination of their year, and all eyes were on them. One mistake can cost you. What I'm most proud of is that our players rose to the occasion playing the best they've played all year when it mattered the most."
What's more, the Celts won in record-setting time—77 minutes and 55 seconds of game time.
"Achieving the fastest finals victory in College LoL Championship history makes us the most dominate esports team to ever win a finals championship," Pelt added.
When the competition began earlier this year, 421 schools participated. The Final 8, which included three former collegiate champion teams, fought it out at the in-person event in LA with no shortage of savvy strategies and razor-sharp moves.
UST's esports program has come very far, very fast. The Celt teams only began entering competition a year ago, and now the LoL team, demonstrating nerves of steel, holds the national championship. Esports is a rapidly growing career field. UST offers multi-disciplinary programs that connect coursework and experiential learning, such as relevant internships with organizations like the Houston Outlaws, to prepare students for success in the growing gaming industry.
National Championship UST League of Legends Team, L to R: Shane "Porsche" Higginbotham, Dat "Kitzuo" Nguyen, Robert "RobbyBob" Wieber, Gil "Shogo" Meron, and Charles "Chookies" Thornburgh
University of St. Thomas is a comprehensive university, grounded in the liberal arts. Committed to the unity of all knowledge, UST offers programs in the traditional liberal arts, professional, and skilled-based disciplines. Graduates of the University of St. Thomas think critically, communicate effectively, succeed professionally, and lead ethically.

Lights pulse on the table as the sounds of harsh alien weather reverberate through the room. Far from home on this distant planet, managers of a fledgling space colony huddle around a table, discussing how to keep their colony and citizens alive for another month . Using RFID-enabled playing cards, these managers change the laws of this colony and the board game's algorithms. Between rounds, the game processes how up to 15,000 different simulated colonists vote for these laws.
This scenario is part of a typical round when playing Beyond Humanity: Colonies, and just the tip of the iceberg of stunningly deep gameplay. But when you stop gawking at the gorgeous game pieces, the spellbinding artwork, and consuming the rich gameplay, you are left wondering, "What is this, and how have I never heard of it before?"
In the tabletop gaming industry, huge publisher groups dominate the scene and lead the way for new trends. However, a brand-new company has shaped the future for tabletop gaming with its initial breakout release, Beyond Humanity: Colonies (BH:C). The publisher, Three Headed Monster, is an aggressive new player in tabletop games and has destroyed the concept of hybrid gaming. With a companion app as the least extraordinary bit of tech being used, BH:C is truly leaping ahead of the status quo. But as high-tech as the game is, that technology makes it feel like any analog game.
Those who love and enjoy the wildly diverse world of board games are likely to have emphatic feelings towards hybrid or tech-enabled games. Some flatly refuse to accept hybrid games, viewing board games as a way to get away from technology. Others are leery of the prospect as there have been proper cautionary tales in the past (i.e., Golem Arcana) . But many see how technology increases the potential for more engaging and immersive games to be brought to the table. And their numbers are growing. The industry is changing to meet these growing demands of more engaging games that use technology to push the experience that games can offer, but progress has been slow.
So how is it that a tiny new company, comprised of a few game-loving friends, has blasted past established companies with hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue? Three Headed Monster (THM) cofounder Casey McBeath stated, "explosive evolution requires outside provocation." As crowdfunding backers and board game collectors themselves, the cofounders of THM realized their diverse career experiences and expertise could be combined to create their dream board game. Staffed with team members possessing expert knowledge of computer programming, engineering, storytelling, graphic design, and mathematics, THM seems purpose-built to deliver the dream of what hybrid games should be.
Max Salamonowicz , cofounder of THM, states, "As serious game enthusiasts, we love gaming. It was our escape from the stress of our very demanding jobs. But because of our backgrounds, we love math! And math, along with its clever implementation, is the backbone of all games. So, we studied the games we love. Really studied them! We went to board game design boot camps, attended industry professional events, became active forum participants, and generally did everything we could to learn more about how these great games are created." And then, like most great ideas, a too-long conversation over beers turned into a discussion of what their dream game would be.
And that is how Beyond Humanity: Colonies was born. From a laundry list of desires to a finalized international product, Three Headed Monster has delivered the world's first genuinely revolutionary hybrid game.
