PlayStation Has A New Handheld (Kind Of), Introduces Project Q During Showcase

Sony is attempt­ing to get back into the hand­held market…sort of. The gam­ing giant announced dur­ing the PlaySta­tion Show­case ear­li­er today Project Q, a hand­held stream­ing device for PS5 games.

Unlike its PSP and PS Vita pre­de­ces­sors, Project Q is not a tra­di­tion­al hand­held gam­ing device. It only streams games, and to play any­thing, uses must first down­load the game’s you want to play to your PS5. It is then streamed from your con­sole to the hand­held via Wi-Fi.

Project Q isn’t exact­ly the pret­ti­est of hand­helds, but it boast a decent screen size of eight inch­es. Dur­ing the Show­case, PlaySta­tion boss Jim Ryan said Sony will have more infor­ma­tion to share about Project Q in “the near fea­ture.” The device is set to launch lat­er this year.

Sony also unveiled a new set of wire­less PlaySta­tion ear­buds. Pre­sum­ably, these ear­buds will make it eas­i­er to lis­ten to games on Project Q. How­ev­er, they can con­nect to the PS5 con­sole itself, or oth­er media device via Bluetooth.
