does this mean the playstation portal is just a shitty sony xperia? i had an xperia back in 2015
At least the Xperia can make calls and isn't tethered to another device.
it probably means the first couple sets of the MAC are very similar and Xfinity is doing a basic 1:1 lookup that hasn't been updated.
Granted this is the same shit company that has a broken app 99% of the time so it's a miracle OP's twitter pic got a notification.
What's next? Are we going to find out the Portal screens are just broken halves of the unsold PSP Go that Sony couldn't get rid of?
They are probably from unsold tablets.
Probably a smart way of doing it. Just make a new housing
Post your face when you didn't buy 2015 hardware in 2023 for full price
masami odate has a weak bladder and a hairy genital area
so it is just a fisher-price xperia and joycon duct taped together?
Without the advantages of being xperia like running any apps offline/natively to boot. So yay... That'll be $199.99
>imagine buying anything related to pajeetstation brand
Sony is phoney.
If Sony was smart, they'd lock cloud streaming so it only works with an official PlayStation Portal.
What the fuck were people expecting
It's literally a fucking tablet running a custom Sony GUI
If that's the case I want to see modders hack the device to where it boots as a normal device. Imagine the emulation potential
>Imagine the emulation potential
With the chip it has, it can barely do Gamecube.
There would need to be some sort of SD card or memory slot for that to be possible which I don't think the Portal has.... ...does it?
>Imagine the emulation potential
It has no horsepower. It's literally just designed to be a wireless screen like a Wii U tablet.
Wii U could be used to play its own games with just the controller though and could be used as an asynchronous screen with games. It literally is more impressive tech than the PlayStation Portable.
Yes, we'll be able to play 8 and 16 bit console games with a 200 something dollar device.
Jesus christ, just buy a controller that holds your phone, you absolute fucking wad.
It has a shitty snapdragon that probablt couldn't even do PS1 properlly
>Imagine the emulation potential
a samsung a54 runs circles around this garbage bro
lmao emulation fags are so fucking retarded
>woah bro is that a new overpriced piece of tech?
>can't wait to play pokemon leafgreen on it!
The one time nintendo are jealous of sony for doing something ingenious before them
release an android device?
I think nintendo did that first
Nintendo has been selling old tablets for 6 years now. Sony just copied them like they always do.
Wii U was over 10 years ago.
Nintendo literally sells a tablet with hardware from 2010 for 400 USD. Sony cannot compete at all.
How come the price always goes up when Ganker tries to recall what a Switch sells for?
Snoy vey, the switch actually costs 6 gorrillion dollars, tendie
Probably is $400 in whatever shithole that anon is from
The age of the shit in it also keeps getting older even though the hardware was only a couple months older than the current knock off PCs were at their launch.
Considering Iwata died the year it came into existence, he may not even have known what was in the final product.
Sony is so desperate they have to sell their failing phones by repackaging them and selling them to their gaming drones. kek
They are only doing the bare minimum to stifle valves handheld and nothing more. Every retard who buys this pile of shit likely won't be buying a deck.
That's all there is to it. Quality and money don't matter.
This cannot be real
It is. What's even better is the fact that slapping a PlayStation logo on it is all the PS "fans" need to buy them up in droves and that tweet will make no difference whatsoever. It'd be pathetic if it weren't so hilarious.
Why not just release a new Xperia? Fully functional smartphone + built-in physical controller + official PlayStation games. It'd sell much better than... whatever they're actually releasing.
Are you guys retarded? It is sold as a device to stream your ps5 to and it does that? Its a boring mostly useless probably overpriced device sure but it works exactly as advertised who the fuck cares that it is using xperia internals?
Sony not changing the device's internal name is a sign they cheaped out / cut corners / etc. portending overall poor quality.
Are most of you just actually retarded? It is a fucking screen with controller. How is this in any way good purchase? This thing cannot and will not ever run a game by itself
>$200 for a controller with a 1080/60 LCD screen bolted to it
Seriously, what the fuck was Sony thinking and what the fuck where consoomers thinking when paying money for it?
isnt a ps5 controller almost 100 on its own?
$70, but currently can be had for $50. So that's an extra $130-$150 for a shitty display, battery, and wifi module.
>$130-$150 for a shitty display, battery, and wifi module.
yea that sounds about right? Is that really that overpriced?
>"$130??? Overpriced trash!!"
>spends $2k on an RTX 4090
Who are you quoting?
Not seeing it
>UHHH WHY ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT SPENDING $1000 ON A BIKE BUT NOT COMPLAINING ABOUT SPENDING $20K ON CAR
They could have at least gone with a 120hz display or even an OLED.
but few games run at 120hz on PlayStation and if they do it's a separate fps option in the game. And besides a device like this isn't for peak performance it's a convenience peripheral for a casual audience.
Some games do run at 120FPS, so if you're gonna kneecap yourself with a shitty 1080p LCD might as well go 120hz for the games that support it. Or up it to 1440p to get a super nice tablet level pixel density. Or use a fucking OLED screen like the Switch or pretty much every tablet and phone does. This entire product is cheap as fuck, it doesn't even have enough onboard power to run fucking PS1 games.
God sony. It's not even funny anymore. It's just sad
>sony thread about sony fuckup
>hymenbroken Gankerirgins simply CANNOT stop uttering the word of the company that raped their minds
I’m not exaggerating when I say that I’m laughing out loud really hard right now
For fuck’s sake Sony lol
Why don't they just re-relase PSVita with Wifi6e and bigger screen? At least it will be something.
>literally literally just a phone with their app
I wasn't giving you advice Sony, I was joking.
>tablets are just phone internals with a bigger screen
>sony sets out to make a tablet with a controller to stream PS games to
>uses phone internals
>BBAJAHAHAHA CAN YOU BELIEVE IT SONY IS SO RETARDED AAAHAHA WHAT A JOKE
I thought the biggest complain is that it can't even work as proper android tablet?
imagine letting your isp run an app on your phone :X
Imagine connecting anything to the internet, ever D:
The wildest part to me is that the Portal is apparently sold out because of scalpers.
Why would you fucking scalp this piece of shit?
Sony always has scalpers and they're all retarded.
Yeah that's expected, the scalpers market is a purely speculator based, you can either strike gold and make more than double your money back on re-selling something highly sought after or fucking break your bank and end up with trash no one wants.
Do Sony still make phones?
Yes, they're actually kinda nice except for the fuck you price
They unironically make the best trandroid phones
how do you consoleplebs not get tired of this endless shit?
do snoys really
