During today’s PlayStation Showcase event, Sony declared that Project Q is genuine and imminent. The existence of the planned handheld was announced by Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment.
The executive announced as the event came to a close, “Later this year, we will unveil a specialised device that enables you to stream any game from your PS5 console, using remote play over Wi-Fi.” It contains an 8-inch HD screen and all of the controls and functionality of the DualSense wireless controller, and is internally referred to as “Project Q.” We anticipate providing further details in the near future.
The gadget is actually a PlayStation controller with an eight-inch screen put in the centre. It certainly represents a departure from more conventional gaming handhelds. In fact, it has more architectural similarities to the Backbone One PlayStation Edition smartphone controller, which was just introduced yesterday. In reality, Project Q is easily categorised as a PS5 peripheral or accessory.
The system is the most recent in a long line of cloud gaming platforms that have, to put it mildly, been mixed, and it represents Sony’s unmistakable belief in the potential of online gaming.
The user’s PlayStation 5 is immediately streamed at 1080p quality and 60 frames per second. Meanwhile, the controller includes every DualSense function, such as adjustable triggers and haptic feedback.
While the international development community rallies to maximise the PS5’s cutting-edge capabilities, Ryan remarked after the event, “It also illustrates the great popularity and power of the PS5.” With cutting-edge hardware like the recently unveiled Project Q and PlayStation VR2, as well as our growth into PC, Mobile, and Live Service gaming, we are actively investing in the future and changing how and where our content may be experienced.
Coming soon: further details, possibly including a price and an official name.
At the presentation, “PlayStation’s first-ever official wireless earbuds” were also revealed. Sony promises low-latency, lossless audio that is optimised for gaming. These appear to be normal earphones, which means that you can connect them to a computer or smartphone. Sony has a fantastic track record when it comes to headphones, so the sound will be excellent.
