PlayStation Q Lite: An upcoming PlayStation 5 Remote Play device from Sony
The debut of PlayStation Q Lite should take place during 2024. The accessory will not be able to play the games independently, but it can be connected remotely to the PlayStation 5 to allow users to play on the move (but always having an Internet connection available for connection to the console). The PlayStation 5 will have to take care of playing the game.
Despite the expectations, therefore, Sony is not working on a portable console and will not launch a successor to the PSP and PS Vita in the future. The success of the Nintendo Switch has not convinced Sony, which, for the moment, will not go beyond the Q Lite (a project still to be officially confirmed), preferring to focus on other sectors, such as VR. As previously mentioned, in fact, the project should only make its debut in 2024 when the PS5 Pro.
