    Don’t listen to the haters. I’m a pc gamer and love my steam deck, but for a ps5 owner that just wants to play their ps5/4 games around their house, the Portal is a far and wide better option, and it’s $200 instead of $550. It’s cheaper, lighter, bigger screen, higher resolution, and the battery lasts longer. It has its purposes.

      Thanks! Agreed that it has its purpose. I also fully understand people have a hard time understanding my viewpoint when they don’t share the same needs.

        I just really haven’t understood lemmys hate boner for the portal. Like so many people seem to hate that this thing that no one is forced to buy even exists, just because you can use other things that are less purpose built to stream a ps5 game to. Like, one guy was saying you should just use a cell phone and controller that hold it. That’s such a dumb idea. You want to buy a $100 phone gaming controller (for a good one) and degrade your cellphone battery and have a smaller screen instead of just paying another $100 for a Portal? Why do that to yourself.

          Yeah, fair enough, and good points! I also hope I can manage with the same phone until it stops receiving new updates, so not super thrilled to buy a new mobile phone just for that either, doesn’t make sense to me at all.
