If you’re still looking to secure a PlayStation Portal pre-order in the last few days before general sale, you’re in luck. Stock has been fluctuating the past few weeks, but it is still possible to grab a pre-order of the handheld from a bunch of different retailers. This isn’t the PS5, after all.
But seeing as how stock does seem to be fluctuating, it’s worth keeping an eye on every possible source to increase your odds of guaranteeing a Portal arrives on your front porch on November 15. That way you get to enjoy remote play on your PS5 and play the best PS5 games without being tethered to your TV. All without having to go through an app on your smartphone.
A PlayStation Portal pre-order is going to set you back $199. That price gets you the handheld, complete with an 8-inch 1080p LCD display with 60Hz refresh rate, roughly 6 to 12 hours of battery life, and a Nintendo Switch-style controller layout styled after the PS5’s DualSense controller. Just don’t expect the controller to detach, or for the handheld to be usable for anything apart from remote play.
You’re not likely to see the PlayStation Portal show up on our list of the best Black Friday gaming deals or the best Black Friday PS5 deals. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check out those discounts to spruce up your PS5 or, at the very least, find something fresh to play on your shiny new device.
We’ve covered all the retailers that are worth checking out right now, so you can grab a PlayStation Portal pre-order for yourself. Not all of these have the handheld in stock at the time of writing, but given how availability has been largely unpredictable, they’re always worth checking out just in case.
