In an exciting development for the gaming community, PlayStation has been consistently pushing the boundaries of gaming experiences with the introduction of the groundbreaking PS5. The impressive integration of haptic feedback and adaptive triggers in the DualSense wireless controller has elevated immersion for players worldwide, and now they have announced a few new goodies upcoming in the months ahead!
In a sneak peek back in May, PlayStation gave gamers a glimpse into their dedicated PS5 remote play device, now officially named the PlayStation Portal remote player, along with their cutting-edge wireless earbuds, the Pulse Explore. Building upon this anticipation, a fresh addition to the lineup has been unveiled – the Pulse Elite, an over-the-ear wireless headset. Both the Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore are set to revolutionize audio experiences by delivering low latency lossless audio from both PS5 and the PlayStation Portal, thanks to the newly developed PlayStation Link wireless technology. These innovative releases continue to underscore PlayStation’s commitment to providing gamers with top-tier gaming peripherals that enhance every aspect of their gaming journeys.
PlayStation Portal Remote Player
The PlayStation Portal remote player offers an immersive extension of the PS5 experience right at your fingertips. It incorporates the primary functionalities of the DualSense wireless controller, encompassing adaptive triggers and haptic feedback*. With a vibrant 8-inch LCD screen, the device achieves a crystal-clear 1080p resolution at 60fps, delivering the high-definition visual engagement synonymous with the top-tier games crafted by renowned developers.
If you’re in a house where lots of people use the main TV or you want to play PS5 games in another room, this gadget is perfect. It talks to your PS5 through Wi-Fi**, so you can easily switch from playing on your big PS5 to playing on the little PlayStation Portal. You can play games you already have on your PS5 and use the same controller. It even has a plug for wired headphones. But, it’s worth noting that it won’t work with special PS VR2 games that need the special headset, and also won’t work with games that you play over the internet using something called PlayStation Plus Premium***.
PlayStation Portal remote player will launch later this year for 199.99 USD | 219.99 EURO | 199.99 GBP | 29,980 YEN. (Estimated RM920++) More details to be confirmed soon.
