According to rumors, Sony is preparing a couple game monitors aimed at PS5, and the new leak details some speculative features and prices for the 27-inch screens, as well as the assertion that these “InZone” products will be unveiled today. We know for sure that something will appear in the press release today under the slogan “Find your new zone”.
The talk of Sony’s new InZone gaming brand arose about a week ago when word spread that the original products might consist of some gaming headsets and the two aforementioned monitors that would sell as “perfect for the PlayStation 5” but equally good for gaming purposes. on a PC as you can imagine.

The latest information on Twitter shows the alleged Sony InZone M3 and M9 monitors as well as the features they can work with. Both 27-inch models, with the M3 apparently, are a 1080p screen with a refresh rate of 240 Hz, a response time of 1 ms and a brightness of 400 nits, as well as 99% sRGB color gamut coverage.
M9 raises rates 4K separation with 600 nits of brightness and 95% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage, offering a refresh rate of 144 Hz (with support for 4K / 120 frames per second), plus both monitors will have a pair of HDMI 2.1 ports with VRR (variable refresh rate) for PS5 Gamers.
These console gamers will also benefit from some features focused on the PS5 (hence the labeling is “perfect for the PS5”). They are reported to include automatic HDR tone display (for better display of details in very dark or light areas) and automatic genre image mode to automatically optimize screen settings based on the content being displayed.
As for prices in Europe, there are rumors that we expect 800 euros (about $ 840, 690 pounds) for the M3 and predictably higher costs of 1300 euros (about 1370 dollars, 1120 pounds) for the M9 monitor.
Analysis: How can Sony enter the world of monitors?
As mentioned, these 27-inch monitors can make great screens gamers on PC, not just PS5 addicts, and we really see that at higher levels the refresh rate has been moved here (240 Hz for 1080p panel and 144 Hz for 4K screen). Sony also includes an automatic KVM switch feature that allows you to seamlessly switch between two different PCs at will (using the same monitor, mouse and keyboard on any computer).
We will of course be interested to see how monitors from Sony will compete with existing and well-established gaming monitor brands. Obviously, Sony is no stranger to quality panels when it comes TVsbut monitors are something like another pixel teapot.
As for the extra features provided by the PS5 owner, we’ve already seen them on some Bravia TVs. Automatic HDR tone display is a great good, of course, although all that the automatic image adjustment feature does is just switch between gaming and movie mode on Sony-enabled TVs. (Perhaps this could be extended to separate display modes for different game genres?)
The good news is that soon we should see these monitors in action, as well as confirm specifications and prices – provided these rumors don’t go away at the last minute, of course.
