PlayStation Portal is Sony’s remote-play handheld device following the announcement of Project Q in March.
As long as you have a Wi-Fi connection, you can play PS5 games anywhere with PS Remote Play. PS Portal requires a minimum of 5Mbps Internet speed, while Sony recommends 15Mbps for optimal gaming. Playing supported games on your PS5 console is limited, and PlayStation Plus Premium cloud streaming will not be supported. Additionally, you won’t be able to run any other games or media locally.
PS Portal is equipped with an 8-inch LCD display with 1080P resolution, 60Hz refresh rate, and the same controller layout as PS5 DualSense. There is a USB-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and top-mounted speakers on the handheld. Currently, the rest of the spec sheet is a secret.
The PS Portal does not support Bluetooth connectivity, only Wi-Fi and PlayStation Link. With Sony’s new proprietary wireless standard, you can switch between compatible devices and enjoy low-latency lossless audio. Later this year, Sony will launch its new Pulse Explore wireless earbuds ($200/€220/£200) and Pulse Elite headset ($150/€150/£120).
Sony has promised more details and official launch dates soon for PlayStation Portal, which is priced at $200 (Rs.16,500/-).
