Sony has recently outlined which PlayStation 4 accessories and peripherals will be compatible with the PS5. And it’s good news for PlayStation VR owners, as the PS4 camera will work with the PS5.
There is a small caveat though, the PS4 camera will require an adaptor to work with the PlayStation 5.
Over on the PlayStation Blog, Sony has stated that the PlayStation Camera adaptor will be free of charge for PS VR players.
“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.”
Details on how to acquire a free PlayStation Camera adaptor for your PS5 will be announced at a later date.
In the same blog post, Sony also said that the DualShock 4 will not work with PS5 games, however, the PS4 controller will work with supported PS4 games. I think this pretty much means that the DualSense probably won’t work with the current version of PlayStation VR.
PS VR players have been wondering for a while if the DualSense would work with PlayStation VR, given that it does not have a light bar on the back for the camera to track. Although Sony hasn’t officially stated that the DualSense won’t work with PSVR, it does seem unlikely.
