Who would have thought… PS3 “portable”?

Technology Playstation 3

The PlayStation 3 Slim is quickly boosting Sony’s reputation in the gaming industry in terms of availability to the public and pricing. Like most hardcore gaming consoles, you can’t really take it on the road.. or so we thought.

The Japanese gaming hardware company, Hori, has come up with a fantastic way to bring your Sony PlayStation 3 on the road. Hori has recently announced that it plans to release an HD monitor that comes with an attachment that encases the PlayStation 3 Slim and allows users to play console games on the display. The monitor is an 11.6 inch screen, has in-built speakers and can fold over the PlayStation 3 console for easy portability. The only downside is that you would need to have an AC outlet in your car, or wherever you are to power up the console.

Hori has told us that they plan to release this accessory on the 27th of May in Japan for around $260 US. The monitor supports both PAL and NTSC, which means PS3 consoles around the world will be compatible.

I usually play games on my PC, occasionally using the 360

    thats awesome but why spend almost as much on the portable monitor as you would on the console itself?

  • Good question, lol.

    The PS3 is an absolute behemoth. Who’s really going to comfortably sit that on their lap. Still looks pretty cool and I want one nonetheless.

    Hori is an really respected brand, but this item looks more like an collector’s item, a curious buy for those with a lot of money to spend.

    I had a screen for my Xbox and PS2 as well, and they both got used pretty frequently.

    I gotta have my games when I travel, and it also gives the kids the ability to play on the system when I am controlling the big TV. 🙂

    This one is definitely a bit pricier though. I’m not sure I care about having that ability for my PS3 at that price.
