Sony's Portable "Project Q" Device Will Be Called PlayStation Portal

After teasing new handheld gaming hardware under the codename “Project Q” during its State of Play showcase in May, Sony has returned to reveal the official name for its new device: PlayStation Portal.

The portable gamer is defined as a “remote player,” featuring an eight-inch LCD screen with up to 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second and a 3.5 mm audio plug-in. Priced at $199.99 USD, the hardware possesses the full capabilities of the standard PS5 Dualshock controller.

The PlayStation Portal’s moniker will be abbreviated to “PSP,” or the same as Sony’s dedicated handheld console, the PlayStation Portable, that hit the market in 2004. Where that model existed with its own gaming system, the forthcoming Portal will instead let players stream games directly from their PS5 for handheld gameplay.

Alongside the gaming device, Sony will release two new audio products: the Pulse Elite wireless headset and the Pulse Explore wireless earbuds. The former will cost $149.99 USD, and the latter will be priced at $199.99 USD.

Sony has not shared an official release date for its new slate of products, though its blog promises that they will be released “later this year.” Take a closer look at the devices in the gallery above.

In more gaming news, the second season of Diablo IV will be released in October.
