Today Sony officially announced the device that was previously called Project Q and is now known as PlayStation Portal remote player.

Announced at the latest PlayStation Showcase, the PlayStation Portal does what it says on the tin, acting as a portable remote player that streams games from your PS5 via the Remote Play feature.

Today we also learn that it'll retail later this year at 1$99.99 USD, €219.99, £199.99, or 29,980 yen depending on where you live. It's interesting to see that the Japanese price takes into account the currently weak yen from the get-go. 

It comes with an 8-inch LCD display capable of 1080p resolution at 60fps. Of course, your network will be relevant to whether you'll be able to remote play your games at that kind of quality.

It requires games to be installed on your PS5 to stream them and doesn't support PlayStation VR games (obviously) and games that require to be streamed via PlayStation Plus Premium's cloud. 

The Portal's grips incorporate the features of a DualSense controller, and it comes with a 3.5mm audio jack for your headphones. 

While this is no proper PlayStation Por...table, and we'll have to wait and see if this kind of device will have a big enough audience to be relevant, those who live with a gamer will now be able to watch their favorite baseball game or soap opera without having to worry about the TV being taken.
