PlayStation Portal Handheld’s Release Date Officially Revealed

Sony have revealed the release date for the PlayStation Portal:

The PlayStation Portal remote player, as Sony refers to their new PlayStation handheld, has a release date. The PlayStation Portal will be officially launched on November 15th.

The PlayStation Portal is tailored to offer portable gaming experiences for PlayStation 5 owners. It features an eight-inch, 1080p LCD display and supports remote play, allowing game streaming at up to 60fps. While the PlayStation Portal includes its own system-on-chip for running its operating system and connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi, it is not designed to run games independently. Instead, its primary function is to enable remote play on a PlayStation 5 through a Wi-Fi connection.

Crafted to seamlessly extend the PS5 experience, the PlayStation Portal comes equipped with controllers that closely mimic the design and functionality of the PS5’s DualSense controllers. These integrated controllers deliver familiar haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, ensuring a consistent gaming experience. Furthermore, the device replicates the PlayStation 5’s home screen, complete with a dedicated section for media playback.

The PlayStation Portal will retail at 199.99 USD | 219.99 EURO | 199.99 GBP. Will you be getting one? Let us know in the comments below. If not, why not?
