When the new P55 handheld was revealed at Sony's PlayStation Showcase 2023 it disappointed, as it essentially streams games from PlayStation 5 via Remote Play over Wi-Fi. This is no PS Vita 2. There have been Sony handheld rumours for months, and industry insider Tom Henderson has been right more than wrong recently when it's come to this new PS5 accessory.
