Sony states that the PlayStation Portal remote player will include the full features of a DualSense controller: adaptive triggers and device-specific haptic feedback. It also has a 3.5mm audio jack (thank goodness), and will use the 8-inch LCD screen to display a 1080p stream at 60fps right to your eyes.
But while the hardware looks pretty neat, it’s important to stress that, unlike products like the Nintendo Switch, or laptops like Valve’s Steam Deck, the PlayStation Portal Remote Launcher (PSRPP?) can’t run games locally. To use it, you’ll need to be connected to the internet as well as your PS5 at home. Sony says this requires a wireless internet connection of at least 5 Mbps, but 15 Mbps is ideal.
The device will not use any local processing power to run a game other than what is required to transmit the streaming image. And Sony hasn’t provided any details about what’s under the hood for the PlayStation Portal remote trigger.
Sony also revealed some new official headphones for PlayStation alongside the announcement, with a set of over-ear headphones (called the Pulse Explore) and over-ear headphones (Pulse Elite) that will retail for $200 and $150, respectively.
Although Sony states that the PlayStation Portal remote player will ship in 2023, no release date has been set for the unit.
