Here’s where you can preorder Sony’s upcoming PlayStation Portal


There’s a chance PlayStation Portal will sell out just as quickly as the PlayStation 5 did when it first launched, which is why Sony currently limits orders to one device per customer. We’ve yet to test the Portal, but if you’re someone who wants to secure a unit at launch, rest assured that Sony is already open for pre-orders in the US and several other countries. Here’s what you need to know.

PlayStation Portal is a portable device that can remotely connect to your PS5 over Wi-Fi. As a result, you can stream pre-installed PS5 games to the Portal’s eight-inch LCD screen, which runs at up to 1080p resolution and 60fps. The device also has controllers on both sides, reminiscent of Sony’s DualSense wireless controller for the PS5 (they even support adaptive triggers and haptic feedback).

Sadly, Portal doesn’t support Bluetooth, which means you won’t be able to connect to your standard wireless pair of headphones. It does, however, support Sony’s proprietary PlayStation Link wireless technology, allowing you to connect it to the upcoming Pulse Explore and Pulse Elite headsets. There’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack in case you prefer a wired headset or pair of wired headphones.

Also, please note that currently only those in select regions such as the US, UK, France and Belgium can pre-order PlayStation Portal. With that being said, customers in other areas including Canada and Japan will be able to pre-order starting September 29.
