At its PlayStation Showcase in May, Sony announced Project Q, a cloud streaming portable gaming device that’ll run PS5 titles exclusively through Remote Play. Now, the company has formally and fully unveiled it as PlayStation Portal.
As previously announced, the PlayStation Portal will feature support for haptic feedback and audio triggers, and feature an 8-inch LCD screen that’ll be capable of running games at 1080p and 60 FPS. Sony has, however, also confirmed that cloud titles available through the PlayStation Plus Premium library will not be supported on the handheld. Meanwhile, as expected, PS VR2 titles also won’t be playable on PlayStation Portal.
The handheld device’s pricing has also been confirmed. The PlayStation Portal will retail for 199.99 USD / 219.99 EURO / 199.99 GBP / 29,980 YEN. It’s set to launch sometime this year, though a specific release date hasn’t been announced. Sony says those details will arrive later, when pre-orders go live.
Meanwhile, Sony has also unveiled new audio accessories for the PS5 in the form of the wireless Pulse Elite headset and Pulse Explorer earbuds.
