  • Here’s everything you need to know


Sony has unveiled its new handheld, and no, it’s not a standalone handheld like PSP or PS Vita. 


Sony Playstation Portal is a handheld device that supports PlayStation Remote Play. Sony calls this device a remote player, saying it “brings the PS5 experience to the palm of your hand.”

Sony Playstation Portal needs a PS5 to work, and it is basically a display stuck between a regular PS5 DualSense Wireless controller.  

The benefit of using a design like this is that you essentially get all the features of the PS5 DualSense controller, such as adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. 

The screen in the middle is an 8-inch Full HD panel with a refresh rate of 60Hz. The device has a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type C port for charging, and top-mounted speakers. Sony has yet to reveal the rest of the specifications and features of the device.

Sony Playstation Portal requires you to have a PS5 to play your PS5 games. Sony has stated that PlayStation Portal will not support PlayStation Premium Plus cloud streaming.

As it works with Remote Play, you can jump from your PS5 to PlayStation Portal and continue your progress. You can use PlayStation Portal on the same WiFi network or over the internet. You need at least 5Mbps internet speeds, while Sony suggests 15Mbps speeds.
