To the Xperia 1 IV, Sony’s Xperia Stream adds Ethernet, HDMI, a cooling fan, and more.

With the aid of a cooling fan and a plethora of ports, the Xperia 1 IV is made suitable for professional gamers by Xperia Stream, the newest gaming-focused accessory from Sony’s mobile division.

Some people were hoping for the Xperia Play to make a comeback after Sony hinted last week that it will be launching a new gaming-focused product in the Xperia line. The Gaming Gear Xperia Stream for Xperia 1 IV, which Sony completely announced today, is a new attachment. Repeat that five times quickly.

As the name implies, it was made specifically for the Xperia 1 IV phone and is an excellent example of what USB-C is capable of. The Xperia Stream’s primary distinguishing characteristics include a rear cooling fan and a larger grip for increased comfort. Flipping it over to reveal the underside reveals some intriguing features: Sony outfitted the Xperia Stream with four full-size connectors, including:

For use with headsets, 3.5mm audio port HDMI output, ideal for syncing with an Ethernet video capture device to provide the optimum network performance. To charge your Xperia 1 IV for longer sessions, use USB-C. The Xperia Stream attachment was developed in partnership with the eSports team SCARZ with a specific focus on the power, visual output, and cooling requirements of mobile game streamers. Power and cooling are apparent, but an intriguing option is video output.

While Android has been working on built-in ways to stream games, the drawback is that the feed uses your phone’s CPU and networking. Your phone can concentrate completely on the game at hand by streaming utilizing an HDMI out and a capture card connected to a computer.

The asking price for the Xperia Stream, 23,100 yen (about $162 USD), is quite exorbitant considering all that it can accomplish for professional players. Additionally, Sony is launching offers the Xperia 1 IV in a dedicated Gaming Edition that includes the Xperia Stream and has a staggering 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. You will need to pay 189,200 yen for this package, which is roughly $1,328. The Xperia Stream and the Xperia 1 IV Gaming Edition may not be sold outside of Asia, which is a bummer.
