On the eve of the PlayStation Portal’s launch in the US, Sony has finally revealed when Australians will get their mitts on the handheld PlayStation 5 companion and just how much it will cost.

The PlayStation Portal (formerly Project Q) will cost $329.95 when it officially releases in Australia on the 2nd of February 2024. Pre-orders are available now through Amazon Australia.


How much does the PlayStation Portal handheld cost in Australia?

The official launch price for the PlayStation Portal is $329.95 in Australia. Admittedly, that’s cheaper than we expected but also as expensive as you could make it considering the DualSense Edge already costs $339 in Australia.

Pre-orders are available through Amazon, EB Games, JB HI-FI and more. Prior to launch, there aren’t any deals available for the PlayStation Portal, with all retailers we can find charging between $329 and $329.95.

The most sound deal is probably through Amazon Australia. You’ll get free delivery and a pre-order price guarantee; basically the price won’t change between now and launch.

When does the PlayStation Portal release in Australia?

As mentioned above, the PlayStation Portal is available to pre-order now in Australia. Units will ship from Friday, the 2nd of February 2024; same date that the device will appear on store shelves in Australia.

It’s a bit of a wait considering the US can already get their hands on the PlayStation Portal in 2023.

You’re also going to want to wait for local reviews. The WiFi-only device seems to be coping okay in America according to reviews, but the Australian home internet situation isn’t quite as advanced (at least for those on a subpar NBN technology.)
