PlayStation Portal Launches on November 15th with Preorders Underway, One Device per Customer Policy Implemented

Sony's highly anticipated handheld, the PlayStation Portal, is set to launch on November 15th, confirming previous rumors. There's a growing expectation that the Portal may experience a rapid sellout similar to the PlayStation 5's initial release, prompting Sony to enforce a one-device-per-customer restriction. While hands-on testing is pending, preorders for the Portal are currently open across various US and international retailers.

The PlayStation Portal offers a portable gaming experience by wirelessly connecting to the PS5 via Wi-Fi. Equipped with an eight-inch LCD screen boasting up to 1080p resolution and 60fps, the device enables streaming of preinstalled PS5 games. Notably, the Portal's controllers on each side resemble Sony's DualSense Wireless Controller for the PS5, featuring adaptive triggers and haptic feedback.

However, the Portal lacks Bluetooth support, preventing connectivity with standard wireless headphones. It does, however, support Sony's proprietary PlayStation Link wireless technology, facilitating compatibility with the Pulse Explore earbuds and Pulse Elite headset. Additionally, a 3.5mm headphone jack caters to users preferring wired headsets or headphones.

The device is currently available for preorder on Sony's PlayStation Direct storefront, as well as Newegg and Best Buy, priced at $199.99. Unfortunately, major retailers like Amazon, Walmart, and GameStop have closed preorders for the handheld.

Preorders for the PlayStation Portal are limited to specific regions, including the US, UK, France, Belgium, Canada, and Japan. However, preorders are not directly available from Sony in Canada and Japan, though occasional availability is reported through Amazon's Canadian and Japanese storefronts.
