It’s been a long time coming, but we’re finally seeing stock for the PlayStation Portal creep through. That means one of the better PlayStation deals right now is being able to buy the PlayStation Portal at Best Buy for $200. It wasn’t that long ago that stock was non-existent, so if you’ve been itching to play PS5 games on the move, this is your chance to do so. Here’s what to expect from your purchase.

Why you should buy the PlayStation Portal

The PlayStation Portal is an affordable way to play your PlayStation collection while on the move or simply while in front of the TV with family and not in a position to load up the console itself. All you need is a Wi-Fi connection and you’re all set.

The PlayStation Portal took a little while to truly win us over but it’s a hugely useful way to play. It has an 8-inch full HD screen which is just the right size for portability while also making it easy for you to see what’s going on as you play. It’s capable of 1080p resolution with up to 60 frames per second so you get silky smooth gameplay.

Purpose-built, the PlayStation Portal feels a lot like holding a DualSense controller with a screen in the middle of it. That means you get all the advantages of a DualSense controller including haptic feedback and adaptive triggers so you feel more in control of the action. Responsive vibrations react to your in-game choices and simulate environmental factors. The display is a touch display so you can always control the action that way if you’d prefer.

Battery life weighs in at about 4 hours so it’s perfect for playing while also spending some time on the couch or when someone else is hogging the TV. You can also take it away from the home if you prefer so there’s good flexibility here. Of course, you can’t play anything other than PlayStation games here but for many people, that won’t be an issue given the many best PlayStation 5 games around.

In recent times, it’s been tough to get hold of a PlayStation Portal but right now, you can do so for $200 at Best Buy. A great addition for any avid PlayStation fan, check it out now before stock runs low again.

The best games on PlayStation Plus, Extra, and Premium

PlayStation Plus has undergone several iterations and changes since its introduction. Originally, the service wasn't required for online play at all and rewarded subscribers with extra discounts and free monthly games. Once the PlayStation 4 generation began, it was required for online play, but still offered those same benefits.

Now, PS Plus is divided into three different tiers of subscriptions. The basic tier, PS Plus Essential, still gets three games per month added, while the Extra and Premium tiers will have a varying number of games added to their catalogs. With hundreds of games already and more coming and going all the time, even the most dedicated gamer won't be able to play everything on offer. To help you get the most bang for your buck and so that no hidden gems fly under your radar, here are all the best games to play on PS Plus Essential, Extra, and Premium right now.

A PS5 sits on a table.

Gamers who haven't upgraded to the PlayStation 5, this is the offer that you've been waiting for -- the PlayStation 5 Slim Marvel's Spider-Man 2 bundle for only $450 from Best Buy. The console already costs $500 and the game sells for $70, so you're looking at savings of $120 if you purchase this bundle. You're going to have to act fast though -- while the supply issues of the PlayStation 5 are a thing of the past, it still flies off the shelves, so if you don't want to wait for the next restock, you better complete your transaction as soon as possible.

Why you should buy the PlayStation 5 Slim Marvel's Spider-Man 2 bundle
The PlayStation 5 has been updated with the PlayStation 5 Slim, which is more than just a smaller version of the popular console. There's no performance upgrade between these two versions, but you do get slightly more built-in storage at 1TB from 825GB. That translates to usable storage of around 842GB from 667GB, which is nearly 200GB of space that you can fill with installed games, save data, screenshots, and more. The console still comes with the impressive DualSense controller, which offers haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
