Earlier this week, Sony announced a brand new portable device, known only as Project Q, that will be able to stream games directly from your home PS5. Sony has promised that the device will arrive later this year, but hasn’t provided a more precise release window. Fortunately, there is a new rumor claiming that the mobile device may arrive in November.
This detail comes from Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson, the same reporter Details about Sony Portable leaked back in April. Henderson chirp Project Q is currently on track for a mid-to-late November release this year. supposed to PlayStation headphones It will launch around the same time, if not sooner.
It is currently scheduled for release in mid-November 2023.May 25, 2023
Henderson didn’t reveal any additional details about Project Q, including how much we can expect the device to cost. But if what he says is accurate, that means Project Q will go on sale in time for the holidays – and around the PS5’s third birthday.
Project Q itself takes the form of an 8-inch LCD tablet with half of a DualSense controller on either side. More or less a PlayStation analogue to the Nintendo Switch, but without the ability to play standalone games. As far as we know, this will be a streaming-only device that will give you remote access to games running on your PS5.
Of course, we seriously hope that Project Q will be more than just a streaming gateway. Both the PS5 and PS4 allow remote play for smartphones, and it’s possible to get a set of control knobs that let you play games without connecting to a DualSense controller. Control control like one’s spine.
There’s always the possibility of adding PlayStation Plus cloud games into the mix, too. As this feature doesn’t seem to be available on smartphones and tablets, if done right, Project Q could allow users to play cloud gaming on the go. But these are some very important things, and Sony hasn’t announced anything like this yet.
We’ll have to see how that plays out, but you can read on for everything we know about Sony Q project in our center.
