Will the DualShock 4 work with PS5 games? And Other PS4 Hardware? Sony Shed the Light On It!

Sony releases a table with the list of controls, cameras and devices that will work on the console, like the DualShock 4 for PS4.

Although we do not yet know the price or the release date of the PlayStation 5, Sony continues to offer details of its next-generation console dropper; this time its official blog offers a compatibility table listing the PS4 accessories and peripherals that can be used on PS5, and in exactly what environments. The result, we anticipate, is a bit more limited than the Xbox Series X seems to offer.

The main restriction lies in the DualShock 4 controller. This will work with backwards-compatible PS4 games, and we take this opportunity to remind you that the most popular games of the present generation will also be playable in the next one; But you will not be able to use it with native PS5 games: “We think that PS5 games should take advantage of the new features and functions that we will bring to the platform, including those of the DualSense wireless controller .”

Apart from that, we will be able to play with specialized controls, such as flight levers, steering wheels or arcade panels, in both backward compatible PS4 and PS5 games; and we can also use the PS VR controllers in games of this class that can be played on the new console, new or backwards compatible. In the virtual reality environment, we also have PlayStation Camera, which will be compatible with an adapter “that will be supplied at no additional cost to PS VR users” with more details on the way.

In the field of accessories that do not directly influence the gameplay, the official wireless helmets, and those of third parties that connect via USB or audio plug, will also be compatible with PS5, but the helmet control application will not. Also note that Sony does not guarantee the compatibility of all PS4 accessories, whether official or third-party. It will be necessary to contact the distributor to know the details of each product.

PS5 will be released at the end of the year in two models: one with a disc reader and the other aimed at digital consumption. Sony has already introduced the first console accessories, including its helmets, its new camera, and an extra TV-style controller.
