Sony's PlayStation Portal is bemusing the internet

Sony's new handheld PlayStation 'console' was met with raised eyebrows when the company announced it back in May. Essentially a streaming device rather than a dedicated console, it was clearly no Steam Deck (or Nintendo Switch, for that matter). Now, Sony has officially revealed a bunch more details, including the device's name – and the bemusement continues.

Previously codenamed 'Project Q', it turns out the handheld is called PlayStation Portal. Or, to give it its hilariously un-catchy full title, PlayStation Portal Remote Player. And while the price hits a sweet spot, a few of the tech specs leave as much to be desired as we feared. (Ready to start gaming? Check out the best PS5 deals available now.)
