Not watching. Is it just another 'streaming is the future' flop?
What event is this? I didn't know there was supposed to be something today.
the Playstation showcase was today. they ended with showcase with OP's picture and spiderman 2
I do wonder the price and the specs for hacking it, but HOLY FUCK it's retarded
Yes, also you need the console
ah yes, the Wii U
WITH EVEN LESS GAMES TO PLAY ON IT
The wii U at least had games
When was the last time sony made something unique? All they have done for these past years and is copy their competition.
This but nintendo
Nintendo Made a motion control console, a tablet console, and a portable tablet console. Sony and MS made low tier PC boxes 2 (ps2 was an underpowered dvd player) and 3 gens in a row
Tendies once again project the hardest.
MS made the Kinect and you didn't like it.
all sony and microsoft are now are cheaper gaming pcs that actually cost more to subscribe to their services forever.
>nintendo made low tier tablets and wagglan
no wonder only children like it
But children only play on PS, that's why Fortnite is so popular.
kids play omn PS anon
>Game that wasn't made for nintendo or out on nintendo for years has less user on nintendo
really makes you thunk
>launched a year later compared to the ps4 version
>the ps4 is also almost half of their revenue
God damn, why is Android so low? lol
It's a pie chart, I imagine it's probably because kids are more likely to be playing it on ipads if they're not using a console or PC.
>came out later than it did on apple
>can't get it from the play store
The fact that Valve, Asus, and now Sony are doing this after the Switch's unexpected success means Nigtendo was on the pulse of something before anyone else.
Nothing really, they have always been ripping off shit from Nintendo
March 4, 2000
they made a successful games console for every generation they participated in, that's certainly unique
They already did Remote Play with the Vita based retard. This is not new.
but the vita was a full fledged console you could play games on. this literally just streams your games to this machine. it's useless otherwise (not like the vita was much better but come the fuck on)
No shit, it's an accesory.
A controller with a screen, not a flagship console.
and that's the problem. a literal $200 streaming machine
Does the Vita have L2/R2 buttons? Every picture I've seen of one makes it seem like it doesn't.
>J-just use the back touchpad!!
No it has a back touch pad which is sometimes used as a L2/R2 for old Ps2 remaster port. Its pretty shitty to use too
There were products that tried to give physical buttons that would touch parts of the back touch pad but I don't know how well they worked.
They worked pretty well, but it doesn't replace actual built-in buttons. t. Vita 1k owner
They've spent their entire time in the games' industry copying Nintendo. It's the only thing they know.
Sony has been copying itself (PS3) for the past 10 years, not sure about competition.
Either way, they suck
Psvr and psvr 2
What's the buyer's remorse like for that?
They announced like 5 new games for VR in this showcase
Maybe after a few months ppl will have a reason to unbox it
Lol they copied the dreamcasts dreameye you retard
its cute that you think that they have competition
I haven't seen the show.
QRD, was there anything relevant?
Panzer Dragoon's Dogma II
The II Talos Principal
but the Deck can already stream PS5
>playing Trek to Yomi on a non-OLED screen
How do you know the Sony thing will be OLED
>thinking OLED is good when it has all the motion blur of LCD and all the burn in problems of Plasma, and then it even has some new problems unique to itself on top.
This is just a proof of concept, right? This looks fucking retarded. Like one of those fake console mockups you can find on a search engine.
no, they clearly see the appeal of the Switch and Steam Deck and think cloud gaming is why people love them
>and think cloud gaming is why people love them
How can you be this brain-dead and tone-deaf to your audience.
It's not even cloud gaming. It's a remote play controller.
If remote play on the vita is anything to go by then cloud gaming would probably be better at this point lmao
>lets do what the switch does, but worse and more expensive t
>$750 for handheld latency
Sony REALLY just saw the switch and said "Hey, let's copy the fucking WII U"
What the FUCK are they THINKING?
Are they copying the switch or something?
They are copying the WiiU
Even worse than I thought.
Then why doesn't it have games? The wii u had good games to the point where they just ported most of them to the switch and they sold millions
Nothing to do with the Switch, it's just a Wii U gamepad.
It's a WiiU Gamepad but all it does is stream games to it
That's what the Wii U pad did
The Gamepad actually affected WiiU games by giving them a secondary screen as a core of WiiU game development, and had a microphone, gyroscope/accelorometer, touchscreen and camera
The Wii u gamepad was an extension of the game and a second screen. This is just streaming the main screen of the game lol
Yes. They always do this.
Remember when they laughed at nintendo's wii announcement when the world saw the motion controls....
Then when they saw the sales - they scrambled their RnD department to frantically try and come up with their own shitty motion control thing that ended up looking like one of those vibrators you see in pornos
>Playstation 5 U
OH NO NO NO NO NO
NINTENBROS WHERE YOU AT?
>OH SHIT SONY HANDH-
>Cloud/Wifi stream shit
I fucking hate nu snoy
what the hell lmao, this looks like one of those fake "xbox 720, ps4" pictures from years ago
sony ? more like copy
This doesn't even do as much as the wii u did. That's very sad
>they're actually trying to copy the fucking Wii U of all things
>handheld device that you can only play in your house and nowhere else
why did they think this was a good idea
They want to pretend they're still in the handheld market but without actually delivering a handheld.
Pretending that Switch owners leave the house.
a switch owner *can* leave the house, you do not get that luxury with the PS5 handheld
I travel every 2 weeks for work so yeah, the switch's portable factor is pretty useful. cloud handheld is fucking useless.
Same, I keep finding myself outside often and even Witcher 3 gets at least 4 hours straight of battery. Less intensive games can go for much longer, provided they don’t have a memory leak issue.
I take my Switch to work, even more so now that TotK is out.
for only $499 goy
I have a dog that looks exactly like this. What race is it?
You can play anywhere with WiFi.
Can you not remote play on your phone with ps5?
god, why would you want to do that without some kind of mobile controller or a bluetooth controller?
but you can use your PS5 controller with most smartphones now...
I liked the Wii U
What the fuck is that?
if someone can hack it it'll probably be more powerful than the switch
anon, it has no actual hardware beyond the bare minimum to stream a video signal from a ps5
Yeah then it'll definitely be a success just like the Vita! lmao
With what it looks like, it's going to basically be an android tablet merged with a PS5 controller. It's going to be low specs.
They should fire who ever let That idea pass. Streaming is a meme and the fact that the damn handheld is useless outside of your house... Like huh? Who's buying this? And why? Is it when you want to continue playing in the bathroom?
>copies wii u
>but it requires internet also making it useless compared to just using your phone
are they retarded?
YES AND THEY ALWAYS HAVE BEEN
I wonder how many people will buy this thing, thinking it works like the switch kek
Thats so embarrassing
Schreier is shitposting now?
As the old saying goes - even a corrupt garden gnome can be right twice a day
I want to ask this genuinely... What does it take to get hired in Sony?
Who's coming up with this shit ideas? I feel like you can take a 14 yo opinion about this and get a better product in the end.
>what does it take
Nothing much it seems when all you have to do is look at your competition and copy it 7 years later with an inferior product
>Device requires broadband internet Wi-Fi with at least 5Mbps for use. For a better play experience, a high-speed connection of at least 15Mbps is recommended. The quality and connectivity of your play experience may vary depending on your network environment. A PlayStation 5 console and a PlayStation Network account are required.
>at least 5Mbps for use.
that cuts out like 90% of burgers
no. you get like 100Mbps minimum from concast for like $45.
if you look at the country download averages on Steam US is pretty up there
burger in the middle of nowhere here. even i have 100mbps internet and that's buying the cheapest package available.
I live in rural buttfuck nowhere in the south and the average starting speeds here are 200-400Mbps with many places having access up to 1 gig.
top fucking kek that shit is dead in the US
>I live in a backwater with 50 other people so the entire rest of the country of 350 million does too
yeah bro google stadia was such a success right?
Will immediately go to shit if you at all aren’t hugging the wifi and every single non-wifi town is automatically excluded.
Why even make this? This is literally just sinking cash into a moneypit.
Is Sony stupid or something? Do they just shoo Mark Cerny into the basement until they need a new console?
>you need a ps5 to begin with
literally what the FUCK is the point? So you can play ps5 while you take a shit?
only if your bathroom is really close to your ps5 if not you might have a bad conection
If this really is a wiiu gamepad going to take a shit isn't going to be possible with all the doors and walls that are going to fuck with your connection.
Pretty sure it'll use wifi/internet instead of local streaming. But that means you'll have constant bad latency.
>PlayStation Network account are required
making you pay them to use your own wifi now too?
What's the fucking point? Why do you need internet for this thing? Shouldn't it stream gameplay directly from the console?
I smell bullshit.
>15Mbps is a lot in the US
Lmao I have 900Mbps atm, Canada wins for once.
>Made 2 of the best handheld devices ever
>Sees potential of continued profit after Switch and Deck
>Copies the fucking Wii U instead
>Has even less games
Sony is impressively retarded
This looks like those mockups from like 2007 youtube video
This has to be fake, right? Didn't watch the end of the show because Dragon's Dogma 2 was all what I needed.
I mean the base console is ugly enough already, who they hire as product designers? Wtf?
>no price announced
they're going to retail this shit for $300+ with a straight face
The Switch has existed for more than half a decade, but here comes Sony to sell you a piece of shit handheld that requires you to be near an active PS5 so you can stream the game to it. I have no idea what they were thinking with this thing.
Honestly have no idea why they made this when they already released the Backbone which is only $100
source on that game screen?
how can they have the FUCKING BALLS to announce a portable device after murdering the vita
Anon, this thing isn't like a Switch or a Steam Deck. You have to be connected to the internet and in range of your PS5 to even get this thing to be more than an expensive paperweight
oh so it just streams a ps5? yikes
I'm gonna buy it
I just realized this was the rumored "vita 2" from months ago
everyone knew it was gonna be a streaming device from the leaks. Vita 2 was some serious copium
remote play runs like shit on ps5. imagine spending bidenbux on this lmao.
This is truly comedy of the highest order. I could not have made a funnier product if I tried.
Sony could have chosen to copy the Deck, they could have chosen to copy the switch, they could have chosen to simply make a new psp!
But no, Sony COPIED THE FUCKING WIIU GAMEPAD.
Money went into coming up with the concept for this piece of e-waste, and somehow, nobody at those meetings said the words "Hold the fuck up, why are we copying the WiiU? Why are we copying what is arguably nintendo's biggest failure ever when we could be copying what is one of their biggest successes ever?"
The SoniiU really got through all these stages of brainstorming, development, prototyping, production, and advertisement, made it onto their biggest announcement show in the second most prime slot of the show, and somehow NOBODY canceled this shit before then?
if you don't like it don't buy it. Me and all my friends think this look really good and depending on the price we might all buy it
Does this do anything you can't do with the remote play app? Is this for people who don't own phones ?
its a dedicated device unlike your phones which need to use accesories
Funny how they looked at Nintendo and decided they needed to make their own Wii U instead of Switch.
>slice a dualshock in two, glue each joycon to an ipad
The "designer" who made this thinks he's the new Jony Ive.
Pic is redditor's meme concept art made in 2022.
imagine how many tens of millions of dollars Sony wasted in R&D
This at least has better proportions than the actual one we have, why is the real one so ugly like the shape is just awful I’d rather stream my game to an ipad and play with an actual controller in my hands
Holy fucking Christ is sony pants on head retarded or what
>Sony finally made a new handheld device
>its a fucking streaming device
WHY DIDNT THEY JUST MAKE A VITA 2?
they will destroy it the same way or even worse than they did with the vita
So Sony regrets having exited the handheld market, but they're too prideful to re-enter it properly and does shit like this instead?
The tech is there for it to not require internet, but they choose to regardless.
$199 plus tip.
streaming devices never worked then and will never work now. this wiiu pad knock off is doa
This is fucking great.
It connects with wi-fi right, from anywhere? Does it connect with bluetooth in the same house?
Anon, this is the literal cope/shill/doomposting thread what are you doing here. They need a full 24 hours to flush out the autistic random rage and saying it's DOA/wont ever work etc.
What's wrong with it...? If you have a PS5 it streams PS5 games to it anywhere.
What the fuck did they want
Nothings wrong with it, this is Ganker that said Switch would flop.
You can tell this is such a fake coping conversation lmfao
A totally optional streaming device that I will actually use in bed like my switch. Yeah I'm coping HARD core.
A streaming device that is nothing like your switch. Yeah you are coping HARD core
Yeah it's actually 1080p 60fps
In addition to highlighting its robust software roadmap, SIE also announced Project Q, a dedicated device launching later this year that enables you to play any compatible1 game installed on your PS5 console using Remote Play over Wi-Fi2. With a vibrant 8-inch LCD screen capable of up to 1080p resolution at 60fps, the device delivers crisp visuals and smooth gameplay streamed from your PS5 when you’re away from your TV. All of the buttons and features of the DualSense wireless controller, including adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, are featured on the device3.
>the screen is 1080p 60 fps
>the games are not
>its streaming so it'll always have shit bitrate
retard we've had Wi-Fi 6 for years now
You forgot to autistically have a fake conversation about asking whats wrong with this because its so embarrassing btw
Whats wrong with this?
What's wrong with what? What the fuck are you talking about. I posted some shit from a news article here
Your brain is so fried from doomposting and autistic rage that you don't realize there's literally nothing wrong with this.
it sucks because some were expecting a ps5 switch
I'd buy a handheld scaled down ps5
I'll wait for switch 2
>locked to using in your home
>not native it runs off of online remote play which is the same as using your phone
that'll be $200
Yes everyone is coping with a controller split in half and an 8 inch screen stuck to the middle of it
>$200 streaming device
genuinely asking but what is wrong with you?
it's bait. i'm 99% sure most redditors and normies will laugh this one out of the room too
Just make a fucking Vita 2 that plays PS4 games. Why does Sony insist on always doing the wrong thing?
They’re probably doing it on purpose. Reminder that the westerners at SIE believe smartphones killed handhelds and deliberately sabotaged the Vita, this actually might be a similar case.
Would it have really hurt to not just essentially take the Steam Deck and put the PS5 APU in it?
Sure, it would cost more than a PS5 but you've got an actual portable PS5 then and not just a Vita 2.
they could just put 7840U in it and disable 3 CUs and have it run games at 720p and call it a day
Is the MGS remasters coming to pc?
Yes, remake too.
Wrong thread tho.
>Tendies trying to rewrite history again
Never forget that Nintendo keeps stealing ideas from less popular games and companies.
Their most recent crime is copying off Banjo Nuts and Bolts.
How is a rotating knob a d-pad?
Quality shitpost, looked up one of the things at random, being Alpha Waves. Technically innovative, but Mario 64 is much more infulential for having movement that's actually fun.
Wii U Gamepad had input lag of 16ms, or 1/60th of a frame
When this has that little latency I'll consider buying it, but watch it have like 5 frames
BRO I'M PLAYING BADLY BECAUSE MY INPUT WAS DELAYED BY 1/20TH OF A SECOND IT'S NOT MY FAULT
any local strraming will have little latency and good image quality because wifi networks have tons of bandwidth but this piece of shit is meant for cloud streaming so expect latency through the roof + disgusting compression low bit rate artifacts
>Your brain is so fried from doomposting and autistic rage that you don't realize there's literally nothing wrong with this.
Its not a console generation without Sony copying the Nintendo poorly again.
>Wii U gamepad
>but with even less functionality
Sony has lost their minds. It will probably cost fucking $300 too. Wii U was retarded, but at least it enabled interiting new mechanics in games. Thsi is just an abortion.
They could have just made a mobile app and a controller clip for a lot less.
They already have that
Imagine how great using PS Now to stream your game on your PS5... then stream that to your Q is.
fucking based snoysisters we can't stop winning! Only 11 years to make a shitty copy of the Wii U gamepad! BASED!!!!
Brooown bricks and greeey handhelds.
What a waste of plastic and electronics to make retarded garbage like this.
I don't get it, can't you already do anything this "handheld" can do on a regular tablet which has far more functions than just streaming your PS5 games from across the room?
Yes but now you can pay 500 dollars for the same thing with a SONY (tm) logo on it
IT'S REAL GUYZ, MY DAD WORKS AT PLAYSTATION.
No dummy watch the showcase it's real. Final announcement before SpiderMan2 was this dogshit
This wouldn't be nearly as dumb if streaming wasn;t already possible on literally anything with an internet connection
Are Sharp supplying the screens?
Where are the Death Stranding handheld ps memes?
>The wii u of ps5.
Incredible. I dont think we can go any worse.
They basically made a worse Xperia tablet
what the fuck were they thinking
Sony, no matter what you do you will fail, and it's partially because of this. This is not a good gamepad. Sony, stop doing it. Please, Sony, stop. Stop making these kind of controllers.
It all comes down to how much it costs. If it's $150-200? There's probably a market for it. If it's $300? Just buy a switch or a Steam Deck.
The important thing is that it's not a new platform so it doesn't need to sell that much. The PS Vita couldn't afford to be a niche product because it needed software support. This is nothing to get particularly excited about, but it's probably going to be successful because it's just an accessory for playing games people were going to buy anyway.
This is Ganker and people are retarded and want to presume Sony made a handheld and not merely an optional accessory.
My fucking sides.
The SnoyU is worse, the wiiu pad at least worked as a secondary screen, this only duplicates the main scren
WiiU did both retard, but this can also be used remotely.
The Wii U actually had fucking games.
Are they copying the Wii U?
What an embarassment. The Wii U flopped, so I guess this will flop too.
Console developers desperately trying to lower resolution requirements because they can't reduce VRAM below PC tier sizes.
PC wins again
Gin, we're leaving.
Why buy this over Logitech g cloud? It can stream from more service and emulate ps2/GameCube on the go.
>nonstop shitposting about "dude new Sony handheld it's joever for the Switch" for the last two weeks
>it's literally just a Wii U
>Sony literally so bereft of ideas they figured fuck it let's invent the Wii U
I'm so annoyed I can't even laugh.
Where? No one was talking about this at all.
Fine, maybe you're lucky, but I couldn't have any fucking Switch-related thread, even talking about a singular fucking video game, without somebody trying to derail it by bringing up "rumored Sony portable hardware" ever since the usual retinue of twitter attention whores dropped "insider information."
>annouce a portable device to get back into the handheld bubble
>actually is a ps5 add-on and is a cloud only streaming device
what the fuck I hate snoy but how are they this retarded
I don’t think the idea for anyone is a traditional handheld market anymore. Even the switch is not a traditional handheld. Traditional handhelds are dead, so now everyone’s trying to make them something else.
I mean I get that but fucking hell its not even its own thing
this would be like if nintendo sold the game pad and the console for the wii u separately, whats the fucking point of buying it
They should have done that.
If it connected locally I'd be somewhat interested. But probably not bothered to stray from chiaki.
I TOLD YOU moronZ snoys management wanted to try getting their shit smeared in cloud gayming and in no way they can sustain a new portable console, it would have negative amount of games but they even copied splatooon ahahahahahha snoys.
At least it looks more ergonomic than the Wii U gamepad.
Lmao Ganker is retarded.
You guys would have Sony release some $700 handheld console that would crash and burn, instead of an easy $200 optional accessory.
There is no way that this will be the same price as a DualSense Edge controller. The absolute minimum price will be $250 with the most likely price being $300.
>sony's wii u rip off is going to probably cost more than a wii-u
I'm more and more convinced that Phil Spencer was being too hard on himself
>According to the fine print at the bottom of Sony’s presentation, games you play on the Q must be installed on a PlayStation 5 console itself — it’s apparently designed as a companion for your own PS5, not something that would play games natively like a Steam Deck or phone or even stream them from the cloud.
Allow it to download games natively like indies to be used on the go and then it is just barely ok. But the fact that you have to connect it to a PS5 to use it is dumb. Have it separate but connected.
>just add memory and processing hardware and triple the price bro
Ganker not sending their smartest today
lol @ nintendo, they don't know what they're doing, we're not even in competition with them at all because we are superior
*sells 12 trillion of their thing*
*does a weak ass ripoff of nintendos thing, except 4 years too late*
Is that just a rendering, or does the thing literally look like that?
the thing literally looks like that
this is retarded but anyone in this thread that is saying game streaming is a meme either hasn’t tried it in 5 years or have no clue of what they are talking about. i use moonlight and sunshine combo everyday on my local network and there is zero difference from playing directly on the host machine and moonlight. zero.
get better hardware
>get better hardware
playstation users can't
Nice PiiU gays
Retards can laugh but remote play is based. I stream ps5 to my deck or laptop when I want to chill in bed. Not saying ill buy this but its based for me
Shill tactic: "it works for MY use case!"
it werks for most cases, remote play is quite good really
why they would make a dedicated accessory for it i dunno but i'm sure they did the math on it
>literally just streams the game
>doesn't add features or function as 5p like the wiiu did
game streaming is sorta cool, its just not good for fast paced shit.
i was played dude sex human ovulation at 4k, max graphical settings on my 150 buck phone, it was neat.
Steam D*ck sisters... your response?
Works on my machine
I'm not shitting on it with Ganker
This time I'm going to wait and see how it performs from non shill videos
>thumbsticks bleeding over the bezel
Is this even real
Ganker is fucking embarrassing sometimes
Thatll be 200$
Lemma guess: it'll cost twice as much as the PS5
I loved my Wii U. But I got it for $200 "refurbished" from Nintendo, at that price it was easy to like. What's the PS version cost? $500 for the console, another $300 for the handheld thingamabob?
so this can stream over the internet, not just local wifi?
what's the point of streaming it off your own hardware in that case
why not stream it from sony servers if you're already going over the internet?
then you don't even need to buy the console itself.. oh right.
Its remote play
Can Sony fucking not gimp a handheld device with stupid decisions? The Vita failed because of their retarded proprietary memory, and now this is going to die because it's just a streaming device. 100% they are banking on this failing so they can either say "See? No point investing in handhelds when they fail" or get even ballsy-er and say "There is no handheld market anymore"
"this will be playstation in 2014" type shit
Now we know why PS went first.
YOU NEED THE INTERNET TO USE THIS THING, THIS IS EVEN WORSE THAN THE FUCKING WII U GAMEPAD YOU DONT NEED THE INTERNET TO USE THAT
I don't understand, do you not have Internet?
i do have internet, but you know what i dont have? A PS5
