PlayStation announces price and specs for Portal, its remote-play device

    PlayStation has released more details about its remote-play device, the Portal — including its specs and price.

    The portal will set you back $199.99. The device should deliver similar performance to playing on an actual PS5 console. It has adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, like PlayStation’s DualSense controllers, and features an 8-inch LCD screen that can deliver 1080p resolution at 60fps.

    But there are a few catches. You need to have a PS5 to use the Portal because it’s just for remote play. It’s not a standalone unit such as the Nintendo Switch or the Steam Deck. You also need a WiFi connection to use the Portal because, again, it needs to connect to your PS5.

    “PlayStation Portal is the perfect device for gamers in households where they might need to share their living room TV or simply want to play PS5 games in another room of the house,” said Hideaki Nishino, senior vice president of platform experience at Sony Interactive Entertainment in a blog post about the Portal. “PlayStation Portal will connect remotely to your PS5 over Wi-Fi, so you’ll be able to swiftly jump from playing on your PS5 to your PlayStation Portal.”

    The Portal is neat looking and garnered generally positive reviews from a couple of outlets that got brief hands-on experience with it.

    PlayStation did not announce when, exactly, the Portal will drop, saying only that it would “will launch later this year.”
