PS4 controllers will still work with the PS5

But not really

Published

Second only to the PlayStation itself, the DualShock controller is the most iconic part of the current generation system. While discussions will always swirl around performance ratings and gaming varieties, the controller defines the user’s seamless experience with the console. Naturally, when the next generation debuted, another spotlight shone on the upcoming DualSense controller. That said, what will become of our old DualShock 4 controllers? Revealed today, the PS4 controllers will still work with the PS5, but not really.

In an official PlayStation blog, Sony answered a few lingering questions surrounding peripherals and accessories for the next generation. As mentioned, yes, the DualShock 4 controller will still work with the PlayStation 5. However, it will only work with PlayStation 4 games. As noted in the initial announcement, the PlayStation 5 is backwards compatible with the PlayStation 4. Meaning, you can still play PlayStation 4 games on the new console.

That said, the DualShock controller will not work with the upcoming PlayStation 5 exclusives. “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,” Sony said.

However, Sony’s more specialized controllers are getting a free pass. Old official racing wheels, arcade sticks, and flight sticks will still work with PlayStation 5 games. A few headsets, the PlayStation Camera, the PS Move, and the PSVR Aim Controller will likewise work.

The new console and supporting peripherals will reportedly launch sometime during the holidays. Currently, we are still missing a few details for the system’s launch, including price and any promoted bundles.

Ubisoft reveals animated trailer for Immortals Fenyx Rising

Discover Immortals Fenyx Rising Animated Trailer that shapes the myth of Fenyx

Immortals Fenyx Rising

You might not be too hyped for this game but this trailer might change your mind. Immortals Fenyx Rising (formerly known as Gods & Monsters) is a fun new take on Greek Mythology. You play the role of Fenyx — a new winged demigod who’s on a quest to save the Greek gods and their home from a dark curse.

This short animation film created by CLM BBDO shows Fenyx battling epic creatures. He tussles against the Minotaur, the Cyclop and the Griffin while How You Like Me Now by The Heavy insolently plays in the background.

Using the Sword of Achilles, Axe of Atalanta, and Bow of Odysseus, Fenyx defeats the monsters one after the other. Each battle she wins dents the rock and, as huge boulders detach from the summit, she ends up shaping the mountain… and her myth!

Watch it here!

Immortals Fenyx Rising takes grand mythological adventure to new heights. Only by mastering the legendary powers of the gods, overcoming heroic trials and confronting powerful mythological beasts, will Fenyx be able to take on Typhon, the deadliest Titan in Greek mythology.

It will be available on December 3, 2020 on the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One family of devices (including the Xbox One X), Nintendo Switc, Epic Games and Ubisoft Connect. The game will also be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
