With PlayStation Portal, people spend more time playing. The goal was not to make money, claims Sony – INDIAN

After Christmas, it will be possible to purchase a new handheld console in the Czech Republic PlayStation Portal, which has already reached store shelves in some world markets. Unlike other discussed handhelds, such as Steam Deck or ASUS ROG Ally, it is used to transfer games from the PlayStation 5. This also means that you cannot play without a classic console.

It is the purpose for which PS Portal was created that makes it slightly controversial. Sony fans are divided on this point. Some welcome it as a great solution to the problem of always busy TV, but others find it completely pointless. The manufacturer itself now tried to more closely approximate the intention with which the console was created.

Sony Vice President Hideaki Nishino in a recent conversation told Japanese portal AV Watch that the new handheld was not launched to maximize revenue. The main intention was to provide players a means by which they will be able to spend more time with the PlayStation 5.

“If you can play anywhere, I think some people will spend more time playing games,” Nishino stated.

But that statement is slightly contradictory. This is because Portal uses video game streaming from your PlayStation 5 console, which in practice means that you cannot play when the console is not running and not connected to the Internet. Portal must also be connected to Wi-Fi, so you definitely cannot play from anywhere.

However, Nishino outlined Sony’s plan to make cloud gaming available, which would make Portal a much more useful device. We have informed you about this separately here.

PlayStation Portal will be available here on 12/01/2024 at a price of CZK 5,390, you can buy it, for example, in the store CZC.cz.

Update (11/18, 12:51 PM): Corrected an erroneous statement about the need to use a local Wi-Fi network.
