Sony introduced the PlayStation Portal portable console, which “brings PS5 features to mobile format“. The novelty allows you to run games on the user’s PlayStation 5 and broadcast gameplay over the Internet to Portal. It offers all the main features of the DualSense wireless controller, including adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, while the bright 8-inch – 1080p 60Hz LCD screen delivers high quality images.
The PlayStation Portal is considered an ideal device for families with many candidates for use as a living room TV. The novelty makes it possible to play PS5 games in another room of the house while the TV is busy. With a portable console, you can enjoy your games on the other side of the world with fast internet. PlayStation Portal connects to the internet via WiFi. With PlayStation Portal you can play all the games installed on your PS5 console and use the DualSense controller. PS VR2 games, i.e. those that require a virtual reality headset, and games streamed via the PlayStation Plus Premium cloud streaming service are not supported.
PlayStation Portal features a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting wired headphones. Since the portable console does not support the Bluetooth standard, wireless headphones can only be connected using the new proprietary Sony PlayStation Link protocol. Sony claims so “This innovation enables low latency, lossless audio and easy switching between multiple PlayStation Link hosts such as PS5 via a USB adapter and PlayStation Portal.”
Coinciding with the announcement of PlayStation Portal, Sony introduced the Pulse Elite Wireless Headset and Pulse Explore Headphones, which connect directly to PlayStation Portal via new PlayStation Link wireless audio technology. When using Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore with PS5, PlayStation Link requires the USB adapter included with each headset and headphones. The new headphones can be connected to both a PlayStation Link-enabled device and a Bluetooth-enabled device at the same time.
Some bloggers have already managed to test Sony’s new portable console. Here is a compilation of their main impressions:
“The feel of the joysticks is comparable to PS5 but the analog sticks are slightly smaller than this one Dual Sense. The screen is bright, the color rendering is good, but approx HDR is out of the question. You can play anywhere that is connected to and connected to your local home network PS5. There were no delays in streaming, but you have to keep in mind that the test took place under ideal conditions and a lot depends on the quality Wi-Fi or internet connection speed – don’t rely on the internet in hotels. When another user uses PS5 handheld console not working. PlayStation Portal doesn’t have onboard storage without being connected to it PS5 cannot run an application. absence Bluetooth is a big minus as it forces you to buy new headphones too Sony costs between $149 and $199, which is almost double the cost of a full-fledged remote game.
The PlayStation Portal portable console will be released later this year for $199.99. More information about the start of pre-orders on the PlayStation portal is not yet available.
