PS5 Camera Is the PlayStation Camera for PS4 compatible with PS5?
Sony has detailed some of the PS4 accessories that will be compatible with the PS5. Naturally, you'll also be able to use your PSVR on the PS5. The PlayStation Camera is also one of them. Anyone with a PlayStation Camera will be able to continue using it on the PS5 for backward compatible PSVR games. You will, however, need an adapter to make it compatible with the PS5. This adapter is free to grab for anyone who has a PSVR headset.
PS5 Camera Will there be a special PS5 camera?
If you want to buy it, there's a new PS5 Camera as part of the PS5 accessories lineup. This camera is not compatible with PSVR however, so unless you're interested in the new functionality it brings for streaming, you're better off sticking with the PS4 Camera.
You'll also be able to use a DualShock 4 on the PS5 but only with PS4 games. The new DualSense controller will have new features for PS5 games, which is why only new PS5 games will work with it.
The PS5 is currently available worldwide, though supply remains extremely limited and it's difficult to find one to purchase right now. There's also a variety of launch games available such as Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon's Souls.
Easy PSVR access
If you pick up a PlayStation Camera for PS4, rest assured knowing it'll be usable on the PS5. You will need an adapter though, which is free as long as you've got a PSVR.
Try to get lucky
The PS5 has launched but finding one in stock remains extraordinarily challenging. If you're able to get one, PS5 games support higher resolutions, refresh rates, and more features that make gaming even more enjoyable.
Gifts while you wait
