PlayStation Portal is the official name of PS5’s new handheld remote play device, launching at $199.99 this year

PlayStation Portal is the official name of PS5’s new handheld remote play device, launching at $199.99 this year.

There is a 3.5mm headphone jack too. That should come in handy as, according to IGN, there's no Bluetooth function. You'll either need to use Sony's new earbuds or headphones, or plug in a wired headset.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, there's no support for PS VR2 games. You'll still need to hook your headset up to your PS5 directly to play VR games. Unfortunately, Sony says cloud game streaming through PlayStation Plus Premium isn't supported either. You'll have to install a game on a PS5 to play it remotely on the PlayStation Portal. That's disappointing, especially considering that the company is testing the ability to stream PS5 games to the console.

Musk, who calls himself a free speech absolutist, announced in a post last Friday that X would end users' ability to limit their interactions with certain accounts except for direct messages, adding in a later post that the block feature "makes no sense" for the platform. 

The planned change caused an uproar among some users, some of whom have also vowed to leave X if the feature is removed. 

"I will absolutely delete my account and leave this app if X attempts to even *test* this policy, wrote one user. "It's absolutely sick and disgusting."

Several months back, Sony teased a dedicated remote play device for the PlayStation 5 as well as new gaming earbuds. Now, the company has revealed more details about the device. It's called the PlayStation Portal remote player.

The handheld looks a bit like a tablet wedged between two halves of a DualSense controller. It can stream games from your PS5 console, so when someone else is using the TV or you're in another room (or even travelling), you can still play remotely via WiFi without having to use your phone, tablet or computer. Sony says the snappily named PlayStation Portal remote player has an eight-inch LCD screen that delivers 1080p visuals at 60 frames per second. The device also benefits from DualSense features such as haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

The goal of the PlayStation Portal is to eliminate those pain points and make Remote Play as easy as just picking it up and playing. The Portal can do something other Remote Play devices can’t: wake up your PS5 just by turning it on, so it’s ready to go. Its design essentially takes a standard DualSense controller, chops it in half, and slaps those two controller grips to the side of an eight-inch, 1080p LCD display. It’s definitely a little weird when you’re used to the more singular-looking designs of current handhelds like the Nintendo Switch and Valve’s Steam Deck, but it’s also lighter than either of those while still giving you both a large screen and full-size controls.
