Sony had previously released similar models to these headphones, but the bluetooth support was not stable enough to be able to connect with the PS5, so this will be a solution for those users who were waiting for an option light and wireless for their consoles.
The PlayStation showcase brought many surprises itself, fans of the platform received pleasant surprises such as Bungie’s project to revive Marathontheir flagship IP that existed even before Halo, new IPs that look very flashy like Phantom Blade Zero that looks like a hybrid of Sekiro and Bloodborne, and the reappearance of a much-loved hero as he is Solid Snake in it Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater.
And of course, they closed with a flourish showing a gameplay of Spider-Man 2, which denoted all the new mechanics Insomniac has been working on since the installment of Miles Morales. And although it is already said that there are many more titles to be shown in the subsequent months, the truth is that the showcase has been quite satisfactory.
On the hardware side, they have only announced hearing aids and Project Q, that despite being considered a new portable console from Sony, it is a bit disappointing, since it will be a console based on streaming for PS5, so a person who does not own a PS5 will probably not see much value in it, because Project Q will require you to have the base console and the games to play.
We will be attentive to any news with Project Q y of hearing aidssince it remains to be seen what this new wireless technology will mean for the future of gaming sound.
