Following days of speculation, Insider Gaming can report that there’s a new PlayStation Handheld in development.
Codenamed the Q Lite, the next PlayStation handheld is the next piece of Sony hardware that aims to be yet another piece of hardware that requires the PlayStation 5.
Insider Gaming understands that the Q Lite is not a cloud-streaming device, but instead uses Remote Play with the PlayStation 5 – A feature the console giant has been pushing these past couple of weeks.
Sporting adaptive streaming up to 1080p and 60FPS, the new device will require constant connectivity to the internet.
Ironically though, this “second phase” is very much true for Sony’s hardware offerings, with the new detachable disc drive PlayStation 5, Project Nomad (wireless earphones), Project Voyager (wireless headset), and Q Lite (handheld) all scheduled to release within a very short period.
It’s understood that the PlayStation 5 Pro is aiming for a holiday 2024 release.
So whenever Sony’s next PlayStation Showcase will be, it’s seemingly going to be a big one. »
