During the PlayStation Showcase, “We will launch a dedicated device that enables you to stream any game from your PS5 console using Remote Play over Wi-Fi”, said Jim Ryan CEO of PlayStation. You will only be able to play PS5 games that are installed on the PS5 console itself means you are only limited to the games which are available on PS5 so you wouldn’t be able to stream games from Steam deck or cloud gaming.
Furthermore, Sony’s Project Q gaming handheld will feature an 8-inch LCD screen with a standard 60Hz refresh rate and 1080p resolution. The display is attached to a DualSense controller with adaptive triggers on both sides.
Alongside Project Q, Sony also introduced its new wireless earbuds. The earbuds will come with Sony’s newly developed “wireless technology” which offers lossless audio on PS5 and PC. Sony will share soon more details about the earbuds and Project Q.
