    The only thing this has going for it is the larger screen and the aspect ratio – I have a backbone and I ended up getting the Logitech cloud solely because of the aspect ratio on a slightly larger screen – games can take up the full real estate of the screen

  2. Dwayne Morgan

    Ahhh…data ok actually. They're upfront abt it. I like it. Hope it's cheap. Cause it's not a console…its an upgraded controller

  3. Adam Burke

    Taking Remote Play and making it the sole purpose of this thing. All so they don’t have to support a proper handheld platform.

    How much is too much? Ps5 edge controller is 200$… 😂

  5. JaysonXWayne

    The problem with this is why not just use your laptop or your phone? What’s the difference? And if they allow for this to work better via home network then they could just do that with you current devices. Why not just allow for your PS5 to stream the display via lan to your laptop and eliminate lag?

  6. Binoy Mathew

    Okay… so I'll buy it since all it does is stream PS5 games. It shouldn't cost much. But what I want to know is, does the PS5 come free with it? 🧐🤔

  7. Scott Powers

    Is you paid attention to the trailer for this project Q, you would've seen the text saying games must be installed on the ps5, so no cloud gaming for you.

    If Sony markets it as a “pro” controller and not a handheld device then it would make more sense. That was part of the Wii U pitch, playing games with the tv off/different input. So this is just quiet literally that but better. But if they call it a handheld console because it’s “the thing” now then it’ll flop even more than it’s going to.

  9. Fish Soda

    what's the point of this. i can do this already on almost all my devices already

  10. Crypto Cwis

    I don’t get what’s the point of this if I can literally remote play to my iPad, iPhone, Mac, etc and have a better display

  11. Míguel

    Straight to the bargain bin. 🗑️

  12. FrotLopOfficial

    Sony: Makes a portable handheld
    Also Sony: Requires giant console and a good wifi connection
    A true handheld: Is actually portable.
    Good job Sony

    WiiU without the soul.

  14. DefOfAWanderer

    It's not even at least a dualsense *edge*with a screen. What happens when you get stick drift? Why no back buttons?

  15. if it cant play games away from home then its a no buy for me, why would i want to play at home with that handheld when the ps5 is at home too?

  16. Murroy Beverley

    Sony dropped the ball. A Ps Vita 2 should’ve been launched and make players be able to play all the PSP titles from way back til now

  17. Victor Creed

    If i can take it to work and stream my PS5 games on it, I'm getting it.

  18. JJ

    The backbone literally exists though?

  19. Dante M

    This just proves how far ahead of its time the PSP was 😅

  20. Gana philip

    Because of the economic crisis that always comes up the best thing to be on every wise individual’s mind or list is to invest in different streams of income that’s not depending on the government to generate funds.

  21. Borke

    ayyy lmao, sony wii u go brrr

  22. phaldaz

    E-waste in 2023 is getting more prevalent it seems

  23. Larry J

    Yeah nah, I can just use a phone or tablet to do that with a regular DS controller.

  24. Neer Kum

    No, you can just stream it on your phone, I can't believe companies are still trying to sell streaming like it's a brand new thing

  25. Nighthunt01

    "we don't know how much it costs, but it can't be too much…" Sony executives: "😂🤑"
