Sony is a month away from launch its next-generation console, the PlayStation 5, and we are still getting new information on the console. Some good news is it supports the virtual reality headset, PlayStation VR.
While PSVR will work on the PS5, the PS5 HD Camera is not compatible with PSVR. In order to use the PSVR on the PS5 you will need the PS Camera for PS4 and PS camera adapter. The PS camera Adaptor does not require a purchase.
“Yes, PlayStation VR games are included among the thousands of PS4 games that are playable on PS5,” said Sony in a PlayStation Blog post. “Please note that playing PS VR games on a PS5 console requires a PS VR headset, DualShock 4 wireless controller or PlayStation Move controller(s), and PS Camera (for PS4), which are sold separately from the PS5 console.
“Also, the PS5 HD Camera is not compatible with PS VR on PS5. You’ll need to use the PS Camera (for PS4), and the PS Camera adaptor (no purchase required), to use PS VR on PS5.”
The PlayStation 5 will launch on November 12 in North America, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand, and in Europe and the rest of the world on November 19.
