One of this week's biggest news stories centred around Sony's plans to reportedly release a new PlayStation handheld. It sounds exciting when you write it down like that, but expectations were very quicky adjusted upon the realisation that this device would — again, reportedly — be dedicated to PS5 Remote Play.

Naturally, we wanted to harvest your opinions on the subject, and so we published a Talking Point, inviting you lot to share your thoughts on a potential Remote Play system. Our included poll asked a simple question: "Would you be interested in a PS5 Remote Play handheld from Sony?"

The results were actually quite split, but the majority clearly aren't sold on a portable machine that's built around Remote Play. 28% of users said they "don't really see the point", and 22% said they simply "couldn't care less". A further 21% said they'd need "a lot more info" before making a decision. Over 2,300 votes were registered.

Interestingly, in our second poll, only 23% of readers said they use Remote Play on a regular basis. 38% said they've tried it "once or twice", and another 38% admitted they've never used it.

These results obviously beg the question: is there even a worthwhile market for a Remote Play handheld from Sony? Especially when so many devices are already supported? As we said in our aforementioned Talking Point, we imagine that this rumoured system would target the PS5's hardcore audience as another fairly expensive accessory.

So, where do you stand on all of this? Make sure you've got a high speed internet connection in the comments section below.
