It should be noted that the PS Portal is not a cloud-streaming device. So it is not compatible with PlayStation Plus Premium’s cloud streaming. It is also incompatible PS VR2 games which is pretty obvious.
The PS Portal looks like a stretched-out DualSense Controller with a big touch screen in the middle. This screen measures 8-inches in size and is capable of 1080p resolution at 60fps. Further, the device also comes with all the bells and whistles of the standard DualSense controller. This includes features such as adaptive triggers and haptic feedback.
Other features include a USB Type-C port for charging. There is also a 3.5mm headset jack for audio. It should be noted that the device does not come with Bluetooth. So many wireless devices including the PS Pulse headset are incompatible. Instead, the PlayStation Portal uses Sony’s proprietary technology called PlayStation link. This will currently only be available with the PS Pulse Elite headset and the PS Pulse Explore earbuds. Both of which were also unveiled by Sony.
Price and availability
The PlayStation Portal is priced at $199.99 (approx. Rs 16,500). Meanwhile, the PS Pulse Elite headset and PS Pulse Explore earbuds are priced at $149.99 USD (approx. Rs 12,400) and $199.99 (approx. Rs 16,500) respectively. Pricing, availability and pre-order details will be revealed later.
