PlayStation Portal differs from the major names in the current handheld market in this regard. Console Steam Deck, Nintendo Switch whose ASUS ROG Ally they have powerful enough hardware to stream individual titles without the need to connect additional devices. It is with these popular products that PS Portal has now been compared in terms of size.
The image, where the PlayStation Portal is placed among other popular handhelds, was published on the X platform by the El Analysta De Bits account. At the same time, the news from Sony seems like a decent cat. For one thing, it has 8-inch displaywhich casts a shadow over all the mentioned competitors due to its dimensions, but also takes up a lot of surrounding space due to the relatively large controllers, designed in the style of the classic DualSense (and, like it, offers adaptive triggers and haptic feedback).
PlayStation Portal goes on sale 15. 11. and it gets to the market with at a price of 220 euros, which translates to 5,400 CZK. Although it is against the grain of many gamers, as they consider it unnecessary, many PlayStation fans are obviously interested.
