Highlighted by the announcement of PlayStation Portal, their first Remote Play dedicated device, and new wireless audio technologies, the news demonstrates PlayStation’s ongoing commitment to innovative, immersive gaming. Here’s what gamers have to look forward to:
PlayStation Portal Remote Player
Launching later this year for $199.99, the PlayStation Portal remote player brings the PS5 experience directly to gamers’ hands.

It’s the perfect solution for gamers who want to enjoy their PS5 titles without being tied to the living room TV. It can connect remotely over Wi-Fi to the PS5 and plays supported games using the DualSense controller. Note that PS VR2 games and games streamed through PlayStation Plus Premium’s cloud streaming won’t be supported.

Pulse Elite Wireless Headset & Pulse Explore Wireless Earbuds
Also unveiled were Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore, the latest PlayStation wireless headset and earbuds, retailing at $149.99 and $199.99, respectively. Utilizing PlayStation’s new Link wireless technology, both devices deliver low latency, lossless audio, and a seamless experience for PS5 and PlayStation Portal.
Pulse Elite is designed with a retractable boom mic, AI-enhanced noise rejection, and includes a convenient charging hanger. Pulse Explore is PlayStation’s first set of wireless earbuds featuring dual microphones and AI-enhanced noise rejection. Both are the first PlayStation audio devices to use custom-designed planar magnetic drivers, which provides an audiophile-level listening experience.
PlayStation Link: Wireless Audio Technology
PlayStation Link is a new wireless audio technology that connects Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore directly to PlayStation Portal and PS5. It guarantees low latency, lossless audio and supports easy switching between multiple hosts, such as PS5, PC, and Mac.
An additional feature of this technology allows simultaneous connection to a PlayStation Link supported device and a Bluetooth-supported device. This dual connection will enable gamers to answer a phone call while playing on the PS5 through the same Pulse Explore earbuds.
Hideaki Nishino, Senior Vice President, Platform Experience, SIE, expressed excitement and gratitude to the PlayStation community for embracing the innovations brought by PS5. The new products are a continuation of PlayStation’s efforts to enhance the overall gaming experience.
These announcements represent PlayStation’s continued commitment to staying at the cutting edge of gaming technology. By offering gamers new ways to interact with their favorite titles and bringing professional-level audio to the mass market, PlayStation is once again setting a high bar for the rest of the industry.
Pre-orders and launch dates are to be announced soon, so gamers should keep an eye on the official PlayStation channels for more information. The future of gaming is looking bright, and PlayStation is leading the way.
