“Later this year we will launch a dedicated device that enables you to stream any game through your PS5 console using remote play,” they revealed.

It has an eight-inch screen and shares the same controller design as the PlayStation 5’s Dualsense controller.

Sony also revealed new earbuds for PS5 fans, but don’t worry as they’ll work on any of your devices just like regular Bluetooth earbuds.

According to Geoff Keighley, the device will run games through Remote Play at 1080p60, and brings adaptive triggers and haptic feedback as they’re featured on the Dualsense controller.

Gaming handhelds have skyrocketed in popularity recently, with Valve’s Steam Deck and Asus’ Rog Ally handhelds leading the mainstream pack so far.

Cloud handhelds like the Razer Edge already offer both PlayStation and Xbox Remote Play — among other things — so we’ll have to wait to see how well Project Q does once it releases later in 2023.
