The PlayStation Untitled Remote Gaming Controller will allow players to access their games over Wi-Fi. The new device, codenamed Project Q, will allow fans to play any game installed on their PS5 console (except VR games) on its eight-inch screen.
This will allow PlayStation users to take their games on the go. Both the PS5 and the new device must be connected to Wi-Fi, but not necessarily on the same network.
More game companies are looking for handheld gaming devices so gamers can take their titles on the go. Nintendo Switch, Valve’s Steam Deck, and Asus’ upcoming Rogue Ally will all be competitors to some degree. Except for Switch, the new PlayStation device is aimed at console gamers rather than PC gamers.
Also, PlayStation Plus subscribers will likely get more value out of their subscriptions with this device.
The unnamed device will launch later this year, and pricing details have not been announced.
