PlayStation Portal Sales Will be Tracked as a Console
It might seem a bit strange considering the PlayStation Portal is almost certainly a PlayStation 5 accessory, but according to Mat Piscatella in a now-deleted tweet, Circana will be tracking its sales as a console.
According to Piscatella, the request was made by Sony themselves and although the tweet is now deleted, a Resetera user managed to snag a screenshot.
It’s currently unclear if the now-deleted tweet is due to misinformation, or if Piscatella wasn’t allowed to reveal the information.
Officially, the $199.99 handheld by PlayStation is described as, ” the perfect device for gamers in households where they might need to share their living room TV or simply want to play PS5 games in another room of the house. PlayStation Portal will connect remotely to your PS5 over Wi-Fi**, so you’ll be able to swiftly jump from playing on your PS5 to your PlayStation Portal.”
Earlier today, it was revealed that the PlayStation Portal sold 5700 units in Spain, 3700 more than the Xbox Series X|S.
