Sony’s portable PlayStation is really coming, but we still don’t know why it’s good for us

The Japanese showed the Project Q handheld console, made along the lines of a strange concept.

No one can accuse Sony of not trying its luck from time to time in markets it is unfamiliar with or has neglected for a long time. It was the only console manufacturer to actually embrace virtual reality and not just scratch the surface like Nintendo did with the Labo: VR package. The successor to the highly successful PlayStation VR, the PlayStation VR2, which is only compatible with the PlayStation 5, launched in February this year, and according to the signs, we don’t have to wait long for the new hardware, which puts mobility at the center, in principle.

The existence of the device in question had already been rumored before, but the manufacturer officially presented Project Q as part of yesterday’s PlayStation Showcase.

Sony’s handheld looks like a DualSense controller has been rolled out like a pastry, and then a screen has been placed in the middle. And that’s really what it’s all about, since Project Q is only suitable for streaming, but not from the cloud (we wouldn’t be surprised if this function were added later), but via Wi-Fi from our PlayStation 5 console thanks to the Remote Play function . Due to its nature, it can only handle traditional games, not VR titles, and although this should be self-evident, the manufacturer thought it important to highlight it.

The maximum resolution of the 8-inch LCD panel is 1080p, while the maximum frame rate is 60 fps. However, what sets it apart from a mobile phone deployed for the same purpose, or perhaps integrated into a controller, is none other than the fact that it has the full functionality of DualSense wireless controllers: all buttons, triggers, analog levers and stops are located in the same place, and of course the haptic feedback cannot be missing.

Sony hasn’t said exactly when it will be released, and it’s being coy about its price, but we’d really like to see if it ends up charging as much for the device with very limited capabilities as an Asus ROG Ally or a Steam Deck costs these days.
