Sony’s previously announced Remote Play portable for PS5, the PS Portal, will officially launch on 15th November – as dated overnight. Pre-orders are open now in select countries via the platform holder’s own direct-to-consumer storefront, PS Direct. The manufacturer says pre-orders will open at other retailers on 29th September.
For those who haven’t been keeping up, PS Portal is a device designed to stream gameplay directly from the PS5 over home Wi-Fi. It effectively enables off-screen play, so if your television is occupied by another person or you fancy continuing your downstairs gaming session in the master bedroom, you’ll be able to use its 8-inch LCD screen to pick up where you left off.
The device will retail for $199.99 in the United States and £199.99 in the UK, so it’s fairly pricey but it’s not going to break the bank. It features all the functionality from the DualSense, including adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, so there are no compromises. Battery life is said to last as long as the PS5 controller, too, but we’re still eager to test that claim for ourselves.
