Finding a PlayStation Portal restock continues to be a challenge. The dedicated remote play device launch last November, but several months later and Sony's supply is still lagging behind the high demand. Much like the PS5 before it, the PS Portal is another piece of tech that many PlayStation fans want but simply can't buy. 

As a device only capable of remote play, the Portal's appeal seemed rather niche, but it's clearly a much more desirable handheld than anticipated as retailers remain sold out of the device. That's why we're tracking restocks across all major retailers. 

Latest PlayStation Portal restock updates

As of 4:00 p.m. ET on April 30, there is PlayStation Portal restock available. Best Buy and Walmart both have it in stock for $199.

These PlayStation Portal alternatives are available now:

The PlayStation Portal is a handheld accessory that lets you remotely play your PS5 console via an 8-inch 1080p LCD display sandwiched in between two halves of a DualSense controller. However, unlike the Nintendo Switch or Steam Deck, the Portal is not capable of native play. You must be tethered to your PS5 via Wi-Fi at all times, so it requires a strong internet connection to function. 

The PlayStation Portal retails at a list price of $199 but its initial popularity has led to unscrupulous resellers trying to shift units at a sizable markup (forcing one TG staffer to overpaid for a PS Portal, which they soon regretted). We can’t stand scalpers at Tom’s Guide which is why we’re tracking stock at every major retailer to help you score a Portal without paying an overinflated fee. 

The bad news is that finding a PlayStation Portal is pretty tricky right now. However, the stock situation could change at any moment so it's still worth checking each retailer below. And bookmark this page for the latest PlayStation Portal restock updates as soon as we get them. (Also, check out our impressions after using the PlayStation Portal for a month and our experience taking the PS5 device on a trip).

Where to buy PlayStation Portal in U.S.

As of April 30, the PlayStation Portal is in stock at Walmart and Best Buy. We don't expect inventory to last long, so grab this while you can.  

Don't lose hope if you're still looking for a Portal as Best Buy's latest drop was very significant. The accessory remained available for days rather than hours. While it's now sold out, this could be a sign that supply is finally catching up to demand. So, be sure to keep checking each retailer listing as stock could appear at any moment.
