PlayStation Portal Pre-Orders Reach Full Capacity At Japanese Retail Outlets
Pre-orders for the PS5’s upcoming handheld gaming accessory, PlayStation Portal, have reached full capacity at Japanese retail outlets.
Multiple online retailers in Japan have now stopped accepting pre-orders for the PlayStation Portal after reaching full stock capacity for the handheld gaming accessory. This includes well-known retailers, such as Amazon, Sony Store, Rakuten Books, Yodobashi, Bic Camera, Yamada Webcom, Sofmap, Joshin, Edion, Aeon, Nojima, and AmiAmi.
It’s hard to say whether this is due to low supplies from Sony as a result of low expected demand from consumers or whether the PS5’s latest handheld gaming accessory is selling really well. Either way, it’s interesting to see that the device is no longer available for pre-order at major online retailers in Japan. As of writing, it’s unknown whether pre-orders will go live once again before the PlayStation Portal’s launch next month on November 13, 2023.
The PlayStation Portal is an upcoming handheld gaming accessory for the PlayStation 5 developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It enables access to your PS5 games through your home Wi-Fi without the need for a TV. It can play compatible games installed on your PS5 console, including both PS5 and PS4 titles. The device also provides haptic feedback and adaptive triggers in supported PS5 games. It features a full HD screen for a detailed gaming experience and can deliver gameplay at up to 60fps at a resolution of 1080p.
PlayStation Portal Remote Player is designed for efficient remote play. You can use it on your home Wi-Fi network for better quality, but it is not required. The device can also function on any broadband internet Wi-Fi with a minimum speed of 5Mbps, though a faster connection of at least 15Mbps is recommended for an improved experience. The experience may vary when using PlayStation Portal over public Wi-Fi, and gameplay may be affected as a result.
