Nintendo already proved that the sales on its Switch consoles are really amazing and in fact, it is currently the most promising portable hybrid gaming system. Today, it is Sony's turn to release a new compact console with its PlayStation Switch or also known as the "Playman." The concept design of this new Sony's device has been teased and according to critics, this could be the end of Nintendo's Switch.

It Is A Trend, So Why Not Follow?

According to Digital Trends, Nintendo is the company who has brought handheld gaming back from a sinking market. With that in mind, it is possible for Nintendo's competitors, such as Sony, to follow the trend. Curved, a German tech and gaming blog, has gone as far to conceptualize a new design for a “PlayStation Switch."

The final design is named as the “Sony Playman,” which is inspired by the names of the portable Walkman and Discman released back in the 1970s and ’80s. Same as the Switch, the Playman also features a hybrid console and handheld configurations. With this, the system can allow gamers to enjoy a full comfort experience at home, office, sheds or even on the go.

The Concept Of The Playman

As of now, this practice is somewhat possibly using Remote Play between the PS4 and the PS Vita. However, the feature and concept of the new console never set the world on fire. For starters, the connection needs a lightning fast internet connection and the absent buttons are designated to the touchscreen, which will make many games more awkward to play.

On the other hand, Sony's Playman has a bright side because of its awesome concept. According to GameRant, the teased concept video and photos show that the Sony PlayStation Switch would offer a large screen. Aside from that, the two Dualshock controller halves in both sides are also available and those could be either connected directly to the TV or attached in a small touchpad.
