Accessories PS4 compatible PS5 ?
Of course, as with each change of generation, there are so many players to wonder if their current accessories (controllers, headsets etc.) will be compatible with the ” next-gen “. On the side of Sony, it has recently been held to make things clear. For example, the special peripherals under official licence, as the racing wheels, the sticks arcade or the joysticks will work with the games PS5 and PS4 games that are supported. A very good thing.
A wireless headset Platinum, and Gold, as well as the party headphones or headsets that connect via the USB port or the headphone jack will also work on PS5. This will be also the case of the controller DualShock 4, which will be compatible with the PS5… but only to play PS4 games.
In fact, according to Sony : ” games PS5 need to make the best use of the new capabilities and features that we are enabling this platform, especially the features of the wireless controller DualSense” . Rather logical in a sense, but those who thought that they could use occasionally a gamepad PS4 on a game PS5 (for several play, for example) must have multiple controllers PS5.
In regards to the small PlayStation Camera for the PS4, the latter will also be compatible with the PS5 to play ” games VR supported “. Sony states that it will, however, take an adapter for a PlayStation Camera, which will be provided free of charge “ to all holders of a helmet PS VR. Sony will soon be added to the procedure to follow to place the hand on the adapter in question.
