Sony’s making a new handheld to stream PS5 games

Titled Project Q

Sony announced a new handheld streaming device for the PlayStation 5 during Wednesday’s PlayStation Showcase: Project Q.

Project Q, will allow players to portably stream their PlayStation library to a smaller screen over Wi-Fi. Games must be already installed on a paired PlayStation 5. PlayStation VR 2 games are excluded from working with the device. Project Q has a Nintendo Switch-like (or Steam Deck-like, if that’s your preference) eight-inch screen, flanked by PlayStation controller-halves which have all the buttons and features of a regular PlayStation 5 controller.

In addition to Project Q, Sony also announced specialized PlayStation 5 earbuds, which will “bring next-generation audio immersion” and lossless audio when playing PS5 and PC games.

Sony called its reveal of both accessories a “sneak peek.” More information about Project Q and the official PlayStation earbuds will be revealed at a later date.
