Finding PlayStation Portal restock remains difficult. The remote play device launched last November, but three months later stock levels haven't stabilised, and it continues to be an in-demand item that lots of PlayStation fans simply can't buy. 

As a dedicated remote play device, the Portal's appeal initially 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 7:05 a.m. ET on February 20, there is no PlayStation Portal restock available. However, restocks are becoming mor common and yesterday saw drops at Amazon, GameStop and Target, and there could be more soon. 

PlayStation Portal alternatives

These PlayStation Portal alternatives are available now:
Backbone One:
$99 @ Amazon
Logitech G Cloud:
was $349 now $299 @ Amazon
Razer Kishi V2:
was $99 now $94 @ Amazon
Nintendo Switch Lite:
was $199 now $187 @ Amazon

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 for $199, but don’t expect to see it popping up among the New Year sales. Its initial popularity has led to unscrupulous resellers trying to shift units at a sizable markup. We can’t stand scalpers here 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 February 20, the PlayStation Portal is sold out. Amazon was the last major retailer to offer inventory as part of its President's Day sales but it's now out of stock once again, and the same is true at Best Buy, Walmart, Target and GameStop. However, we're hopefully fresh drops are on the way soon as Portal stock levels appear to be slowly improving with restocks becoming increasingly common. 

PlayStation Portal: $199 @ PlayStation Direct

PlayStation Direct is Sony's official gaming retailer, so is one of the best places to shop for all things PlayStation. Remember, you'll need a PlayStation account to purchase one if/when it restocks.

PlayStation Portal: $199 @ Amazon

Amazon is currently sold out of the PlayStation Portal. There are several third-party listings but these are demanding as much as $439 for a "Like New" condition unit. It's best to wait for Amazon to restock to avoid paying these inflated prices. Amazon last restocked the PlayStation Portal on Monday, February 19. 

PlayStation Portal: $199 @ Best Buy

Best Buy is sold out of the PlayStation Portal right now but we expect the electronics retailer will restock at some point soon, so keep a watch on its listing page. 

PlayStation Portal: $199 @ Walmart

PlayStation Portal: $199 @ Walmart (check stock)
Walmart is sold out of the PlayStation Portal but we're hoping the big-box retailer will restock shortly. We expect that the retailer may opt to make stock exclusively available to Walmart Plus members as it frequently did this when PS5 restock was at its peak. 

PlayStation Portal: $199 @ GameStop

PlayStation Portal: $199 @ GameStop (check stock)
GameStop is sold out of the PlayStation Portal right now, but the gaming speciality retailer restocked the device earlier this week so hopefully its next drop isn't far behind.

Unfortunately, Target is another major retailer that is currently sold out of the PlayStation Portal right now.

Amazon U.K. notes that the PlayStation Portal is a "#1 Best Seller" and for that reason, it's not unsurprising it's out of stock. We're keeping our fingers crossed that the online mega-retailer restocks the Portal soon. There retailer's last restock was on Valentine's Day (Feb.14)
