It was initially unclear if the PlayStation Portal would make its way to Australia, but it’s now been confirmed that the device will be coming early next year.
PLAYSTATION PORTAL AUSTRALIAN RELEASE DATE AND PRICE
The PlayStation Portal will be releasing in Australia on February 2nd, roughly 10 weeks after it launches in other parts of the world. It’ll be priced at $329.95 AUD which is fairly reasonable given the $250 USD price point.
CHEAPEST PLAYSTATION PORTAL PRE-ORDER IN AUSTRALIA
The best pre-order deal for the PlayStation Portal is currently at Amazon for $329.95 with free delivery, no upfront deposit and a pre-order price guarantee (meaning you’ll get it for the cheapest price between ordering and shipment if it drops).
The PlayStation Portal will have an 8-inch LCD screen that is 1080p and 60Hz. It will have adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, so should mimic the feeling of using a DualSense controller nicely.
It will stream games over Wi-FI from your PS5 console, so it’s definitely not a standalone handheld, or a successor to the Vita, but rather a console that it is designed to be used alongside your PS5 console within the home and potentially outside of it.
