Sony Unveils Game Streaming Device and Wireless Earbuds at PlayStation Showcase
During the recent PlayStation Showcase event, Sony made an exciting announcement regarding a new game streaming device and a set of true wireless earbuds tailored for gaming enthusiasts.
For those hoping for a Sony competitor to the Nintendo Switch, it’s important to note that this new device may not fulfill that desire.
Sony clarified that the device is primarily intended for streaming games from the PlayStation 5 to a handheld screen, rather than offering native gaming capabilities. Think of it as more akin to the Razer Edge rather than the Steam Deck.
Referred to as “Project Q,” this device has been the subject of rumors for some time. It boasts an 8-inch screen and features controller attachments on both sides, resembling a DualSense controller with a screen replacing the touchpad.
With this innovation, gamers can finally indulge in playing titles like The Last of Us even while on the move or in the comfort of their own bathrooms—a convenience that may not be readily available with the Steam Deck for the foreseeable future.
While details about the software capabilities of Project Q are still under wraps, it would be desirable if the device offered standalone functionality beyond merely connecting to the PS5.
Additionally, the inclusion of game streaming capabilities via PS Now would be a welcome addition, enhancing the device’s versatility.
In conjunction with the portable nature of Project Q, Sony also unveiled a pair of gaming earbuds. Although specific details about these earbuds are limited, they are expected to be compatible with both the PS5 and PC, making them likely candidates for use with Project Q once both products officially launch.
The popularity of gaming earbuds is on the rise, as evidenced by offerings such as Razer’s Hammerhead earbuds, which can connect to gaming PCs and smartphones alike.

If the PlayStation earbuds offer similar functionality, they could even be utilized during daily commutes, providing gamers with an immersive audio experience wherever they go.
As Sony expands its gaming ecosystem, the introduction of Project Q and the accompanying wireless earbuds signal the company’s commitment to delivering innovative gaming experiences both at home and on the go.
Gamers now eagerly await further information regarding these exciting new additions to the PlayStation lineup.
