According to a rumour, the battery of the PlayStation 5 portable device would last between three and four hours, but it is not yet officially confirmed.
Sony surprised at its recent PlayStation Showcase by showing the public its portable accessory for PlayStation 5 dedicated to Remote Play, offering the option of using Wi-Fi to play games already installed on the console. Apparently, and as collected from TheGamer, the device’s battery life, known as Project Q, would have been leaked, which is not too much. Tom Henderson, from Insider Gaming, has revealed that the battery would have a run of about three or four hours maximum: “Get ready, because Insider Gaming knows that the battery life of the Project Q will be around 3-4 hours. Yes, you read that right. Q is in the same brand as the DualSense, which has short battery life.”
Tom Henderson, a regular industry leaker who once specialized only in Call of Duty, also anticipates that this could lead to sales problems for Sony: “If the commercial version of Project Q has a battery life of 3 to 4 hours, the “This device could be a hard sell for Sony. People are already skeptical of its success, as the handheld is only used with Remote Play,” he added. “But I think ultimately the success of Project Q will depend on its price.” We still don’t know what price this portable accessory will have, so it’s too early to say.
The Nintendo Switch OLED battery can last up to 9 hours, so this first figure advanced in the rumour is surprising. For now, we know that Project Q has an 8-inch high-definition screen, as well as all the buttons and functions of the PS5 DualSense and that it does not run the games directly but instead plays them from the main console. Jim Ryan assured that he hoped “to be able to share more information in the near future” and that Project Q would arrive this same 2023.
