    The device only has 8gb of internal memory and you can’t add extra memory to it. In other words, practically useless for anything past running a bunch of cartridge roms.

      It’s android. Even if you can’t use the built in usb port for storage, you can still mount a network share over wifi. e.g. from your phone.
      Or, use it for running other streaming apps. Would probably be ***’ for moonlight/steam remote play. Or install chiaki to use it with a ps4. (which you can’t do by default for some reason)

    An super expensive tablet that can do less than what’s already widely available. Count me in !

  3. NK says:

    Just buy a tablet instead of waiting for this *** that’s all this thing is anyway.

    what is the actual hardware involved? Even hacked, can this device run anything meaningful on its own?
    Has Sony given up on all handheld devices then?
    I’m playing the c^@p out of my Steam deck and the playstations are gathering dust…
    Except the ps5, which is in the box on a shelf in the closet gathering dust.

    Hey wololo, maybe you could create a sign-in so we don’t have to put our info in every time we comment?

      I know it’s inconvenient to have to re-enter your info but I don’t want people to have to sign in to comment, for multiple reasons (privacy in particular)

    Versus a Rog or Steam dedicated handheld device, this streaming handheld doesn’t compare. The only point I could see in this particular hack being useful, it leads to another vector in which to attack the PS5.

      I mean thia device is an overpriced screen but comparing it to consoles that start around 100 dollars more for a used one isnt super fair. I’d say a retroid pocket or other similar device is a far better comparison.

    I used to whitelist this site from adblock but this popup donation spam everytime I open the site is too annoying.

    • wololo says:

      Thanks for the feedback and sorry about that. I added this donation button for people who want to use adblock but still want to support the site, per their request. I set it up to show the least often possible (basically when you close it it won’t show up for a few days) but I don’t have that much control other than that.

    Better idea make a vita 2 sound good have the power of a ps 4-5 maybe. Know sony they will not get this correct. Sell it at a good price at $299-$399 and look you have a steam deck killer.

    Ugly and useless Portal ever! It is only remote and a stream from ps5 on it. SO SO USELESS!!

    I am waiting for next new PS handheld (codename) that are in the work.
