PS4-Dedicated Portable Monitor Announced, Turns the Console into a Quasi-Laptop

on June 27, 2014 1:43 PM

Hori will be releasing their “Liquid Crystal Monitor 4” for the Playstation 4 which will be priced for 32,184 yen (approximately $314). Essentially it is like having a somewhat portable system on the go (you will still need to plug into a socket though). The monitor’s max resolution is 1080p.

You simply attach the monitor onto the Playstation 4 and connect the HDMI cable to the screen then finally plug in the power supply to the wall. When you’re done using it you simply fold it over like if it was a laptop screen (I wouldn’t put it on my lap though if I were you).

No word of a release outside Japan as of yet.
