The company has detailed what PS4 accessories players can bring over to the PS5

Sony has released details of the accessories and peripherals that will be compatible with the PS5 when it releases later this year.

In a new PlayStation Blog post, the company highlighted which accessories players will be able to bring across from the PS4 to the PS5.

Players will be able to use the DualShock 4 on the new console with supported PS4 games. However, PS5 titles will require the system’s new DualSense controller in order to be played as games will utilise the peripheral’s unique features.
