Microsoft Thinks Sony’s ‘Project Q’ Price Will Be Under $300

A new finding from the ongoing FTC vs MS/ABK deposition has revealed that Microsoft believes Sony’s ‘Project Q’ price will be less than $300.

The finding comes from @stephentotilo on Twitter, who has been doing a brilliant job covering all the information surrounding Micriosft’s proposed acquisition of Activision / Blizzard / King. The finding says, “Sony is also anticipated to release a handheld version of PlayStation 5 later this year for under $300.”

Project Q was exclusively revealed to be in development by Insider Gaming earlier this year and was revealed by Sony themselves during the PlayStation Showcase. One burning question fans had though, was what is the price?

Sporting adaptive streaming up to 1080p and 60FPS, the new device will require constant connectivity to the internet and will use Remote Play. The device sports a massive 8-inch screen, adaptive triggers for haptic feedback, and will include what you would come to expect from a handheld – Volume buttons, speakers, an audio input jack, etc.

“Under $300” could suggest that the device will sell for $299, but hopefully the handheld will release for much less.

Project Q is scheduled to have additional information revealed on it in the coming months and will launch by the end of the year.

Insider Gaming understands that the PlayStation 6 is not scheduled to release until at least 2028, with the company having a PlayStation 5 Pro in development, which could release as early as the holiday of 2024.

How much do you think the PlayStation Project Q will be priced?
