Priced at a competitive $200, PlayStation Portal promises to redefine mobile gaming. While the exact release date remains under wraps, the anticipation is palpable.
Equipped with an 8-inch panel boasting a 1080p resolution and a 60 Hz frame rate, the Portal offers a visually stunning experience. The controller, mirroring the Dualsense of the PlayStation 5, includes adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, ensuring an immersive gaming sensation.
One of the standout features of the Playstation Portal is its ability to enable remote streaming. This means that owning a Playstation 5 is essential, as the games run on the console and are transferred to the handheld device via WLAN. Whether the television is occupied or you simply want to game in a different room, the Portal offers unparalleled flexibility.
However, it’s worth noting that remote game streaming via the cloud from PlayStation Plus Premium is not supported. A broadband WiFi connection with at least 5 Mbit/s is required, with a high-speed connection of 15 Mbit/s recommended for optimal gaming.
Alongside the Portal, Sony has also announced new audio devices that promise to elevate the auditory experience for gamers. The wireless headphones Pulse Elite, priced at around $150, offer lower latency, superior sound, and AI-based noise cancellation.
The Pulse Explore Wireless earbuds, equipped with two microphones and AI-supported noise cancellation, provide lossless sound and come with a charging cradle. Priced at $200, these earbuds feature magnetic planar drivers, a technology usually reserved for premium headphones used by professional sound engineers.
