In a discussion with CNET’s Scott Stein, Cherlynn and Devindra express their confusion and disappointment with the Portal. While it does perform well in streaming games from the PS5, its high cost and cumbersome design make it suitable only for dedicated PS5 enthusiasts, who may still want to wait for a discounted price.
