PlayStation has officially revealed the PlayStation Portal, which was teased back in May as PlayStation’s first dedicated remote play device.
Hideaki Nishino had this to say in the newest PlayStation Blog, detailing the new hardware:
“Since launching PS5, we’ve been amazed to see how players around the world have embraced the generational leaps we made in the gaming experience, such as the heightened feeling of immersion delivered by the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers in the DualSense wireless controller. Our PlayStation community continues to give us a reason to challenge ourselves to bring new innovations to the market for all players to enjoy.”Hideaki Nishino, Senior Vice President, Platform Experience, SIE
The PlayStation Portal remote player is designed to bring the PS5 experience to the palm of your hand. The device includes key features such as:
- Adaptive triggers and haptic feedback like the DualSense wireless controller
- A Vibrant 8-inch LCD screen capable of 1080p resolution at 60fps
- Ability to connect remotely to your PS5 over Wi-Fi
- 3.5mm audio jack for wired audio
PS VR2 games will not be accessible, nor will games streamed through PlayStation Plus Premium’s cloud streaming (not available in Australia).
