What’s on the inside?
The acrylic cover on the top of the console is fixed with a magnet and that means that it is easy to remove the game disc from the setup. The overall weight of the portable device is 6.4 kilos which is roughly the same as the PlayStation 5. While answering queries of curious netizens, the technicians who made the console said that it cost them 50,000 yen (Rs 35,000 approx). They confirmed that they were not interested in selling their creation, however, admitted if a commercial version of the device was a possibility it would be sold for around Rs 1.05 lakh.
The portable PlayStation 4 can be charged using an adapter like any other laptop and offers its users playtime of up to an hour.
Portable PS5 a possibility?
The technicians also added that they are working on a portable version of the newly-released PlayStation 5 which would take a couple of years to finish. The PlayStation 5 has been released globally and will also be launched in India on 2 February with pre-orders for the gaming console starting on 12 January. There is a lot of excitement around Sony’s flagship gaming console considering it has taken months for it to be launched in the Indian market.
