Sony’s Project Q: A new way to play PS5 games on the go

Sony has announced Project Q, a new portable device that will let you stream PS5 games to an 8-inch HD screen. The device will have all the buttons and features of the PS5’s DualSense controller, such as haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. Project Q is expected to launch later this year12.

Sony’s Project Q is not a standalone console, but rather a companion device for the PS5. You will need to own a PS5 and connect it to Project Q via Remote Play over Wi-Fi. This means you will also need a high-speed internet connection of at least 5Mbps, though 15Mbps is recommended3. You won’t be able to play PS5 games on Project Q without these requirements.

Project Q will also have some limitations on what games you can play. Games that require peripherals other than a single standard PlayStation controller, such as PSVR games, will not be compatible with Project Q. You also can’t stream games from your PS Plus Premium membership to your PS5 and then to Project Q3. You can only stream games that are installed on your PS5.

Project Q is Sony’s latest attempt to enter the handheld gaming market, which has been dominated by Nintendo with its Switch console. However, unlike the Switch, Project Q does not run games natively, but relies on streaming them from the PS5. This may limit its appeal to gamers who want to play anywhere and anytime.

Sony has not revealed the price or the exact release date of Project Q yet, but said it will share more information in the near future12. Project Q is part of Sony’s expansion into new gaming platforms, such as PC, mobile and live service gaming3.
