Curious what PS4 peripherals you’ll be able to use on the PS5 once it launches? While there’s no complete list of this just yet, Sony has outlined the PS4 peripherals on PS5 that can be used for official Sony products.
Which existing PS4 peripherals/accessories will work on PS5?
- Specialty peripherals, such as officially licensed racing wheels, arcade sticks, and flight sticks, will work with PS5 games and supported PS4 games.
- The Platinum and Gold Wireless Headsets, as well as third-party headsets that connect via USB port or audio jack, will work on PS5 (the headset companion app is not compatible with PS5).
- The DualShock 4 wireless controller and PlayStation officially licensed third-party gamepad controllers will work with supported PS4 games.
- Both the PS Move Motion Controllers and the PlayStation VR Aim Controller will work with supported PS VR games on PS5.
Please note, not all PlayStation officially licensed or third-party peripherals/accessories may work on PS5. We recommend checking with the manufacturer to confirm whether a product will work on PS5 and specific titles.
As for the controller itself, the DualShock 4 won’t work with PS5 games, which is understandable given the PS5 DualSense has controller capabilities that the DualShock 4 doesn’t have.
For te PlayStation Camera though, it’s all good. Sony confirms that for the PSVR.
Is the PlayStation Camera for PS4 compatible with PS5?
Yes, PlayStation Camera will work with PS5 for playing supported PS VR games. It will require a PlayStation Camera adaptor that will be provided at no additional cost to PS VR users. More details on how to get the adaptor will be announced at a later date
In other PS5 news, Sony has announced that a new State of Play is happening this Thursday! Read up on details about that here.
