They also announced a "remote play" PlayStation handheld device currently titled -"Project Q" along with pretty cool PS5 gaming earbuds. The gaming handheld has more of a Nintendo Switch-like feel with a redesigned Dual Sense controller attached.
This handheld gaming will connect with PlayStation 5 consoles and allow the players to play PS5 games remotely without any hard-core gaming setup. PlayStation's remote play device "Project Q", will supposedly launch later this year. Though, its design & specs are subject to change based on the little ‘*’ information displayed at the button of the teaser.
Spider-Man 2 Took Major Spotlight
With a 12 min of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 gameplay trailer reveal Insomniac’s Spider-Man 2 video game stole the show.
No wonder the game seems super engaging & expanding. Its map with the long bridges and narrow alleys of Manhattan gives players an intimate connection with the Spidey's home. Apart from the storyline & some new features revealed in the suits of Miles Morales & Peter, the villain Kraven and all of his friends (and seemingly enemies)were a bonus for the audience bringing them to the edge of their seats.
Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is arriving on PlayStation 5 in the Fall of 2023.
