PlayStation Showcase 2023

The PlayStation Showcase has come loaded with much news; Sony has presented two accessories for the PS5 console. For some people, they were a complete surprise; while others were already expecting the accessories since some time ago, there have been rumors of development. But undoubtedly, one accessory is more surprising than the other.

On the one hand, Sony has presented the new wireless earbuds. With these headphones, Sony promises to revolutionize the new generation of audio. But, on the other hand, it made the presentation of Project Q, an accessory, completely different from the previous one. Project Q is a laptop allowing all PS5 users to stream games from the console.

Of the two accessories presented yesterday by Sony, Project Q is the one that has drawn the most attention from everyone. Project Q is the new console, although it does not run the games directly but plays them from the PS5. This new console resembles the Remote Play technology that has been on the market for some time.

With the help of this gadget, all users will have the opportunity to play each of the games of the main console PS5; to play, it is only necessary to be connected to a Wi-Fi network. Project Q has all the buttons and functions of the PS5 DualSense; it also includes an 8-inch high-definition screen.

When do the new PlayStation 5 accessories go on sale?

In yesterday’s presentation, the new device could be used with the gameplay of God of War: Ragnarok, so all users who want to play it as presented must have the game installed on their PS5. On the other hand, it is important to note that it is not a device designed to transmit games of the cloud; it is necessary always to have a Wi-Fi network connection.

In any case, it is still too early to conclude; Sony says that in the coming months will continue to reveal details for the launch later this year. In addition, Sony assures that in a few months, we will know the commercial name of Project Q.

On the other hand, as for the headphones, at the moment, it is only known that they will be compatible with both the PS5 and PC, iOS, and Android; soon, more details will be revealed.
