Sony have detailed which current PlayStation 4 peripherals will work on PlayStation 5 and although you will be able to use a Dualshock 4 to play backwards compatible PS4 games on the PlayStation 5 you won't be able to use for PS5 games. For many this meant their expensive steering wheels were little more than decoration, and required a significant investment to continue their activities on PS4. The DualShock 4 can, however, be used for "supported PS4 games". In early June, we saw a ton of PS5 games and the first look at the console itself, but this time Sony says there are "no big PS5 announcements".

Sony's Platinum and Gold Wireless Headsets, along with third-party headsets that plug into the USB port.

The company has provided fans an overview of what now released PS4 accessories will work on the PlayStation 5. Finally, the blog noted that not every officially licensed PlayStation or third-party peripheral/accessory will work on PS5.

The DualShock 4 wireless controller and PlayStation officially licensed third-party gamepad controllers will work with supported PS4 games.

Yes, PlayStation Camera will work with PlayStation 5 for playing supported PlayStation VR games. We recommend checking with the manufacturer to confirm whether a product will work on PS5 and specific titles. There will also be no updates on the PS5 console itself or details on hot topics such as pricing and pre-order dates.
