Playstation 4 accessories to work on Playstation 5

With the Digital launch of Playstation 5 gaming console, there was a lot of doubt in the mind of people who already own a Playstation 4. Whether the backward compatibility is fluid and whether the same accessories that have been purchased for PS4 can be used on PS5 etc. Recently, Sony has answered some of the most common and frequent questions about the upcoming PS5 and its controller support.

The users who already have a lot of PS4 certified accessories like racing wheels, arcade sticks, etc will work in the same way with PS5 as well. Therefore, you do not need to buy a whole new set of accessories with PS5. This would also include the PS Move Controllers and VR Aim controllers that were used for the PS VR games.

You can also use the PS4 controllers on PS5, however, it will only work on the games that have been created for PS4. The company also stated that if the user has Platinum or Gold wireless headsets, it will be compatible with the new PS5.

Also, any third party headset that connects to the Playstation through USB or an audio jack will also be compatible with PS5. However, there is a catch to it. Sony did mention that only those third party accessories will be compatible with the new PS5 which has been licensed by Sony. If not, the users will not be able to use them. It would bring a lot of disappointment for many users as they used such accessories due to their low cost.
