While the rumored price should be taken with caution, it makes sense. We know that Project Q refers to the “handheld version of the PlayStation 5.” So the suggested price point would position it as a more affordable option compared to the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) by at least $50. We should also note that Logitech’s G Cloud gaming handheld is the closest rival to Project Q. The latter costs $299.99.

We know that Sony’s handheld, codenamed Project Q, has an impressive 8-inch display and supports streaming in 1080p at 60 frames per second.

By the way, the PlayStation Vita, Sony’s latest handheld gaming system, was launched in 2012. Rather than developing a new portable console, Sony chose to focus on delivering portable experiences through Remote Play. This feature allows users to stream games from a more powerful console to a smaller device. So there is every reason to think that Sony is taking Remote Play to a new level with Project Q. The device, which was unveiled by PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan during a virtual event on 24 May, looks like a DualSense controller split in two with a tablet screen in the middle. Ryan said that Sony intends to release Project Q later this year.
