PSPortal Reviews are In
VGC Loved it – The screen is bright and clear, and the whole system is ergonomically pleasing. The thumbstick feels slightly different from a standard DualSense controller, and it’s yet to be seen if it’ll be afflicted with the stick drift issues of the PS5’s DualSense.
Verge – “My first impression is that this device is primarily for PlayStation diehards who want a simple, dedicated tool for streaming games around their homes. It may be for when the main TV is in use or to take games to other rooms like the bedroom or the bathroom (if you’re okay with flagged devices), but $200 is a little pricey for such a single-use accessory to a $400–$500 game console — especially when there are many other options available that you may already own.”
Kotaku – At present, Portal’s touchpad functionality is clumsy and poorly explained, but it’s not a total dealbreaker. There’s not a dedicated menu for Portal under the PS5’s accessory settings yet, but hopefully that’s not too far off.
Every review mentioned lack of bluetooth support. SO unless you have a PS Link enabled headset, you can’t use the Portal with wireless headphones.
PS5 Slim Disk Drive Swap
(5) Can You Swap PS5 Slim Disc Drives? – YouTube
PS5 Unregisters disk drive when you reset it
If you register it to one PS5 and put it in another PS5 Slim, the second PS5
The second PS5 showed the error logo in the top corner and at first the PS5 said the disc drive couldn’t be used but then after a restart, the PS5 registered the disc drive and everything was fine.
Then, swapping the disc drive back to the original PS5 Slim that it was in, it still worked without registration so it seems like it will remember all of the PS5s it is connected to.
Not the most elegant system, and more complicated than it needs to be, but it works as well as it can under the circumstances.
Overall, I’m still really happy with my PS5 Slim.

Upgrading to Premium if you already have a year of Essential would be $32
If you’re still using PS+ Essential, I would say it’s definitely worth paying the $20 to upgrade, if my math is correct and it should be.
PlayStation Game Store
No word on the price drop specifics yet but they mention EA Sports FC 24, NBA 2k24, AC Mirage and more.
I would be interested in AC Mirage since it’s a $50 game to begin with so the price will probably be $25 or $30 and I think it’s worth grabbing for that based on reviews.
20% off on a bunch of merchandise without a promo code
Orders over $75 will come with free shipping and a PlaySTation Heritage Katana Hat
