In order to use PSVR, players will need the headset, the Move Controllers, and a camera. While working on the PS5, PSVR is confirmed not to be compatible with the PS5 camera, so if you’re trading in your old system make sure to keep that little tidbit for yourself.
In a recent confirmation found on the Sony FAQ page, the company confirmed that incompatibility with the updated camera:
If you want to play PSVR, PS4 titles included, on your new PS5, you’re going to need to keep your PS4 camera. You’ll also need to use the included PS Camera adaptor, which thankfully comes with the system.
For those that don’t already have a PlayStation 4 system or the camera, you’re going to need to purchase a PS4 DualShock controller and the PS4 camera separately. It’s a little weird for Sony to handle the PSVR compatibility this way, but at the very least the adapter is free for those that have this gen’s camera.
As for the system itself, PlayStation 5 officially arrives on November 12. Pre-orders went fast, so hopefully launch day will bear better fruit for those hoping to dive into next gen on day one.[Source: Sony via Forbes]
