Sony hosted a press conference yesterday, May 25th, where they not only unveiled their latest game titles but also revealed their cloud-streaming portable console called “Project Q.”
Project Q’s design departs from the elegant aesthetics of its predecessors, the PSP and PSV portable platforms. Instead, it looks like a split PS5 DualSense controller with a smartphone-sized screen in the middle.
Project Q has an 8-inch display and all of the DualSense controller’s buttons and functions.
Functionally, being a streaming handheld console, it cannot run independently.
Wi-Fi access would be required for players to stream and play PS5 games on the portable device.
In addition to Project Q, Sony also introduced their first official PlayStation wireless earpiece. This headgear works with the PS5, PC, cellphones, and other devices. It utilizes the most recent wireless technology from Sony Interactive Entertainment, providing a high-quality audio experience with little latency.
Both of these products are expected to hit the market by the end of 2023.
