Let’s go through the details at below.
PlayStation Portal remote player
PlayStation Portal remote player is essentially a handheld device to experience PS5 at anywhere and anytime, by streaming from the player’s PS5. Controls are identical with the features of the DualSense wireless controller, including adaptive triggers and haptic feedback*. For the display, an 8-inch LCD screen with 1080p resolution at 60fps offers high definition visual experience that’s expected from the high quality games created by world-class developers.
The device is perfect for gamers in households where they might need to share their living room TV or simply want to play PS5 games in another room of the house. PlayStation Portal will connect remotely to your PS5 over Wi-Fi**, so you’ll be able to swiftly jump from playing on your PS5 to your PlayStation Portal. PlayStation Portal can play supported games that are installed on your PS5 console and use the Dualsense controller. It also includes a 3.5mm audio jack for wired audio. However, PlayStation has stated that PS VR2 games, which require the headset, and games that are streamed through PlayStation Plus Premium’s cloud streaming, are not supported.***
PlayStation has confirmed that the PlayStation Portal will launch later this year for 199.99 USD | 219.99 EURO | 199.99 GBP | 29,980 YEN.

- Pulse Explore is the company’s first set of wireless earbuds, providing a premium portable audio experience that includes dual microphones with AI-enhanced noise rejection capable of filtering background sounds. It also offers lossless audio and comes with a charging case.
Both wireless audio will be the first PlayStation audio devices to use custom-designed planar magnetic drivers for an audiophile-level listening experience normally found in premium headphones for professional sound engineers.

Pulse Elite will be available for 149.99 USD | 149.99 EURO | 129.99 GBP | 18,980 YEN and Pulse Explore will be available for 199.99 USD | 219.99 EURO | 199.99 GBP | 29,980 YEN.
PlayStation Link, PlayStation’s new wireless audio technology
Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore can connect with PlayStation Portal by the company’s new wireless audio technology, PlayStation Link. It delivers low latency, lossless audio and easy switching between multiple PlayStation Link hosts such as PS5 with the USB adapter and PlayStation Portal.
When using Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore with PS5, the USB adapter that’s included with each headset and earbuds is required for PlayStation Link. The PlayStation Link USB adapter will also be sold separately as a standalone item, and can be used on PC and Mac, so players can connect Pulse Elite or Pulse Explore to experience the same lossless and low latency audio. Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore can simultaneously connect to a PlayStation Link supported device (PS5, PC, Mac, or PlayStation Portal) and a Bluetooth supported device. For example, Pulse Explore can be connected to PS5 (via the USB adapter) using PlayStation Link and also to a mobile phone through Bluetooth at the same time. While playing on PS5, gamers can instantly answer a call and hear it through the same Pulse Explore earbuds.
