PlayStation’s first Remote Play device is here and we’ve got everything you need to know about how to pre-order the PlayStation Portal.
If you’ve always wanted to play your PS5 from the comfort of your bed, or your TV has been a little too occupied, the PlayStation Portal is for you.
A Remote Play device capable of streaming from your PS5 to a new handheld unit, the PS Portal allows you to take gaming on the go – at least so long as you have a stable enough connection.
PlayStation Portal Price
The PlayStation Portal retails for $199.99 / €219.99 / £199.99 / ¥29,980, meaning that it’ll be a little pricier than many fans were expecting.
However, it’s worth noting that the device contains a split DualSense controller, with all the haptic feedback, dynamic triggers, and other features gamers have come to expect.
Seeing as a DualSense retails for just under $70, that likely drives the price up considerably.
PlayStation Portal Release Date
The PlayStation Portal has a confirmed release date of November 15, 2023, meaning it’ll launch in time for the holidays.
Pre-orders for the new device are already available, and it seems that they’re not selling out too fast.
How to Pre-Order PlayStation Portal
The PlayStation Portal is now available to pre-order on PlayStation Direct using the link below:
Although the PS Portal looks like the sort of hardware that would be limited to just PlayStation Direct, it is possible that other retailers will also get pre-order stock to sell in the coming weeks.
PS Portal Specs
The PlayStation Portal has the following specifications:
|Screen Size||8-inch LCD|
|Frame Rate||60 Hz|
|Hardware||Split DualSense Controller|
|Audio||3.5mm Audio Jack|
Those wondering why the PlayStation Portal is missing a CPU, GPU, or Memory category should note that the device is a remote streaming piece of hardware.
That is to say, you WILL need a PS5 in order to use the PlayStation Portal, as it has no power to play by itself.
What’s more, the device only works with the PS5, and will not support PS VR2 or PS Plus Premium cloud streaming titles.
