Sony Xperia Stream:
As part of its Xperia gaming event earlier today, Sony introduced the Xperia Stream – a cooling case that doubles as a streaming rig for the Xperia 1 IV smartphone. This accessory plugs into the phone via USB-C and provides a full-sized HDMI port, LAN port, headphone jack, and USB-C port. You’re still playing on your phone’s display since it doesn’t have any buttons or joysticks.
Using HDMI, you can output games to a monitor or TV with 1080p resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. Gaming battles can also be recorded and streamed using a capture card. The case’s cooling fans can be controlled via the Game enhancer menu. It retails for $160, or JPY 23,100.
