Sony announces Xperia Stream: cooling and streaming accessory for the Xperia 1 IV
Sony had an Xperia gaming event earlier today where it announced the Xperia Stream – a cooling case that’s compatible with the Xperia 1 IV smartphone and which also doubles as a streaming rig. The accessory plugs into the phone via USB-C and brings a full-sized HDMI port alongside a LAN port, headphone jack and a USB-C port on top. It does not feature any additional buttons or joysticks so you are still doing the actual gaming on the phone's display.
The HDMI port can help you output games to a monitor or TV with video output capped at 1080p resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. You can also hook up a capture card to record and stream your gaming battles. The cooling fans built into the case offer programmable control via the Game enhancer menu.
Sony Xperia Stream retails for JPY 23,100 which converts to $160. Sony also announced a new Xperia 1 IV Gaming Edition smartphone bundle which features the newly announced accessory alongside an Xperia 1 IV with 16GB RAM and 512GB storage which is priced at JPY 175,000 ($1,225).
