Sony has announced a new handheld device called Project Q that will allow users to stream PS5 games to a portable screen. The device is expected to launch later this year and will feature an 8-inch HD screen, a built-in DualSense controller, and support for Wi-Fi streaming.
Project Q is essentially a portable version of Sony’s Remote Play feature, which allows users to stream PS4 and PS5 games to their smartphones and tablets. However, Project Q is a dedicated device that is designed specifically for gaming, and it is expected to offer a better streaming experience than Remote Play.
The device will be powered by a custom-designed chip that is optimized for streaming games. It will also have a built-in battery that is said to provide up to 6 hours of gameplay on a single charge.
Project Q is a significant move by Sony, as it is the company’s first attempt to enter the handheld gaming market. The device is likely to appeal to gamers who want to be able to play their PS5 games on the go, and it could also help to boost sales of the PS5 console.
Features of Project Q:
- 8-inch HD screen
