Handheld gaming devices continue to grow increasingly popular, and as the likes of the Nintendo Switch, Steam Deck, and others enjoy consistent success, questions about whether we can expect other companies to also throw their hat into the ring grow louder. Sony recently dipped its toes back in portable waters with the remote play device PlayStation Portal, and it now seems the company may have something else in works.

That’s as per Russian journalist Anton Logvinov, who has previously accurately leaked Sony-related stories, who has now claimed that Sony has another portable PlayStation device in the works. As per Legvinov, the device will have multiple PS4 titles in its launch lineup. Whether that means it will be able to run all PS4 games natively, or if it will be a separate system that Sony is porting PS4 titles to, is unclear.

As per Logvinov, retailers are currently “skeptical” about how the portable device will be received by the masses, though following the surprising success of the PlayStation Portal, you would imagine that Sony will want to expand its presence in the handheld space- or so one hopes, at any rate.
