PlayStation 5 will support PS4 controllers, but only for playing PS4 games

Sony’s approach is different to Microsoft’s

Curated via Twitter from The Verge’s twitter account….

Sony says that existing DualShock 4 controllers and officially licensed third-party PS4 controllers “will work with supported PS4 games. ” Sony doesn’t list its supported games, but the company does confirm that officially licensed racing wheels, arcade sticks, and flight sticks will work with PS5 games and supported PS4 games.

Sony is confirming today that its existing PS4 controller will not work with PS5 games. “We believe that PS5 games should take advantage of the new capabilities and features we’re bringing to the platform, including the features of DualSense wireless controller,” says Sony in a statement confirming the company’s plans.

Microsoft has made only minor changes to its Xbox Series X controller, allowing the company more freedom for existing hardware to work with future games.

Sony’s existing PS Move Motion Controllers and the PlayStation VR Aim Controller will also work with supported PS VR games on the PS5.
