For a while, rumors had been circulating regarding a new portable PlayStation system making its way to the consumer market – and they turned out to be right on the money. The Sony PS Portal is now available to pre order offering PS5 users a streaming handheld that promises some quality game-streaming at a relatively affordable price point.
The Sony PlayStation Portal is capable of streaming PS5 games over Wifi. It comes with an eight-inch LCD screen that runs natively at 1080p. The controllers are reminiscent of Sony’s now iconic DualSense wireless controller, which packs all the nifty haptic feedback tech and adaptive triggers that we’ve come to know and love. But when is the Sony PlayStation Portal coming out and where can you pre order a PS Portal prior to launch?

How much is the portable PlayStation 2023?
The portable PS console is going to cost would be buyers $199.99/ £199.99. This is quite a steep asking price and as far as we can tell it doesn’t come with a case or screen protector.
The PS Portal is very similar to the Nintendo Switch concept, something that has proven to work but will the additional cost put prospective buyers off? Of course, it is only as portable as your Wifi connection but is that a bad thing?
