Sony recently presented the PlayStation 5 will support the PS4 a lot. And it’s mostly good news if you’re hoping to be able to reuse your existing hardware with the new console.
PS5 will support other special city peripherals such as licensed arcade joysticks, flying sticks, and racing wheels licensed with both PS5 games and support Ps4 titles.
Sony’s Gold and Platinum wireless headsets, as well as 3.5mm and third-party USB headphones, should also play nicely with the next-generation system.
PlayStation VR-related peripherals will work with the headset. The Move and Aim controllers will work with VR PS games supported on PS5.
The PlayStation camera will also work, although you will have to have a free adapter. Details for the converter will come in the future.
However, you should not expect your DualShock 4 controller to replace PS5‘s DualSense. Although DualShock and its licensed third-party replacers will play PS4 games, you will need a DualSense or a licensed partner for PS5 software.
Games should take advantage of the PS5‘s new capabilities, Sony said, and include DualSense’s features.
The controller’s decision is unfortunate if you hope to use your PS4 gamepad for more local players, but this makes sense with the DualSense functional changes.
More sophisticated trigger activation and haptic feedback can not only provide more than DualShock 4 but also provide an in-game advantage. You may be at a disadvantage if you stick with some PS4 controllers.
This is not a comprehensive list of accessory support and may not answer all your questions. All are the same, obviously, you will only have to pay extra if you need more than one DualSense controller.
That is not in line with Sony’s history. To some extent, it’s an improvement over previous generations, where hardware differences often forced you to throw away many existing accessories.
