The PlayStation Portal will launch in South Africa in early 2024. The remote play device will be released on 21 February in the country with pre-orders now open across retailers.
In South Africa, you’ll pay R5,499 for the $199 PlayStation Portal remote-play device which allows players to sync their PS5 consoles to display and play games without the need for a TV. The PlayStation Portal launched in November in the United States and a small handful of other regions. The slow global rollout means that other countries, including South Africa, will only get their hands on the device in 2024.
Apart from the PlayStation Portal, Sony is also launching its new PULSE audio devices at the same time. On 21 February, you’ll be able to pick up the PULSE Explore Wireless Earbuds for R4,999 and the PULSE Elite Wireless Headset for R3,499. Both devices are also available to pre-order starting today.
Be sure to get your pre-orders in for these new accessories as soon as possible if you’re keen on investing in one. We have included all retail links to Nexus Hub below so you can secure them.
