Although Sony was clearly developing a portable Playstation portal in South Africa, details about its design and features remained unclear since its initial announcement. With the Playstation Portal now accessible, players can get a better glimpse at what the PS5 will be able to do thanks to Playstation.
First of all, it’s reasonable to state that the Playstation Portal is a companion device rather than an independent unit. This basically implies that the Playstation 5 system can “cast” content to the Playstation Portal, which functions as a portable screen and controller. This effectively indicates that the PlayStation Portal is a tool designed to improve the PS5’s capacity to play games remotely.
“The ideal device for gamers in households where they might need to share their living room TV or simply want to play PS5 games in another room of the house,” according to Playstation, is the Playstation Portal in South Africa.

You can quickly go from playing on your PS5 to your Playstation Portal by using Wi-Fi to establish a remote connection between PlayStation Portal and your PS5. For wired audio, it also has a 3.5mm audio jack. Games that require the PS VR2 headset and those that be played via cloud streaming with PlayStation Plus Premium are not supported.
On November 15, 2023, the Playstation Portal remote player went on sale internationally for 199.99 USD (about R3,700). Pricing and availability in South Africa are still pending.
