Sony, a dominant force in the handheld console market with its PSP and PS Vita, appears to be looking to reinvent portable gaming hardware. A new report details the PlayStation Q Lite handheld, which is still in QA testing. The new handheld is described as a PlayStation 5 DualSense controller with an 8-inch LCD screen in the middle, but the caveat is that it will only work with Sony’s PlayStation Remote Play.
The device will be able to stream PS5 games, but will not be able to play games on its own without an internet connection. There is no confirmation that it will work with other cloud-based gaming platforms. According to information provided, Sony’s upcoming PlayStation handheld could resemble the Nintendo Wii U GamePad, connecting to the Wii U via a modified low-latency Wi-Fi protocol and allowing you to play games on the smaller screen as long as you On the same network as the console.
