Introduction of PlayStation Portal: Sony introduces the PlayStation Portal as an attempt to compete in the handheld gaming market. Unlike traditional handhelds, it doesn't run games directly but streams them from a connected PlayStation 5 console.

 Functionality & Limitations: The Portal streams games exclusively from a linked PS5, mirroring the console interface. It requires a strong internet connection and doesn't support media apps or streaming services.

Controller Design & Features: Resembling a DualSense controller with a built-in screen, the Portal's touchscreen replicates touchpad functions for game interactions, although some games may have compatibility issues.

 Screen Quality & Battery Life: The device sports an 8-inch LCD screen offering up to 1080p resolution and provides about 8 hours of playtime on a full charge. Battery performance remains consistent regardless of the game being played.

 Streaming Challenges: Streaming quality heavily relies on internet bandwidth, demanding higher speeds for smoother gameplay, especially in fast-paced games with significant movement

 Comparative Convenience: While the Portal offers convenience, Sony's PS Remote Play app, available on various devices, provides similar streaming capabilities without the need for an additional device.

. Pricing & Conclusion: Priced at $200, the Portal aims to offer a level of convenience beyond the PS Remote Play app but may be considered a luxury item for specific gaming needs and preferences.
