What are the best accessories for the PS5? – News

Sony detailed in August which accessories would be compatible with the PlayStation 5. Unlike the Xbox which plays the card of continuity by offering maximum compatibility to all the accessories of the previous generation, the Japanese manufacturer sets some limits, which can make the task a little more complex when it comes to making a few gifts. With this article, let’s take a look at what’s no longer compatible, what still works, and what we’ve picked best for your PS5.

Is it compatible or is it not?

It’s on the official PlayStation blog that we learned what the limitations of backward compatibility would be with the PS5. To summarize :

  • Specific controllers like steering wheels, arcade sticks, flight-sticks, are compatible with the PlayStation 5, whether to play PS4 games or PS5 for that matter.
  • USB keyboards and mice remain compatible with PlayStation 5 for games that support this type of control
  • PlayStation 4 controllers can be used on Playstation 5, but only to play games PlayStation 4. This applies to the DualShock 4, but also to all controllers from third-party manufacturers.
  • DualShock 4 controller chargers cannot charge Dualsense that does not have the same type of connector.
  • Headsets and headsets, in USB as in mini-jack 3.5, keep their total compatibility from the PS4 to the PS5. Only those who connect via the optical output cannot connect to the PS5 because it does not have such an output.

Whether in the case of steering wheels or that of headphones, given the size of the market and the specificities of these products we have created specific articles for you:

Joysticks and controllers: do we have a choice?

What are the best accessories for the PS5?

The answer is simply no. At present, only the DualSense ensures compatibility with the entire PS5 game library. The good news is that the Sony controller, which comes standard with the console, has all the functions one can imagine: analog control, vibrations and haptic feedback, gyroscope, rechargeable battery. It’s even cut out for the cat with its Mic / Speaker combo, in case you don’t have a headset (and if your family is willing to hear you organize your little battles out loud). So of course it is possible to use a PS4 controller on PS5, but only to play games from the previous generation. So for now, the only viable choice on Sony’s latest console, this is the DualSense.

We charge our controllers in pairs

What are the best accessories for the PS5?

Basically, no need for a specific charger for the DualSense, the controller is delivered with its cable that just connect to the console or any powered USB port. But it’s always nice to have this controller rest that automatically charges your device. Especially since at Sony, the choice of the rechargeable battery and the many functions of the controller imply almost a daily charge. As well, if there are already many models from third-party manufacturers, it is the one from Sony that has our preference for the time being. Aesthetics reminiscent of the console, manufacturing quality, charging two controllers simultaneously, even with its price a little higher than the competition, its many advantages make it very clearly the model of choice.

The camera for streaming and the one for VR

What are the best accessories for the PS5?

Again, Sony isn’t really playing clarity for the general public with its cameras. On the one hand, the new model dedicated to the PS5 provides a beautiful image in HD, ideal for streaming, but totally incompatible with the PS VR (which connects to PS5). For the latter, you must use the camera of the PS4, which on the one hand is not compatible for streaming, but which in addition requires an adapter to be connected to PS5. A fairly substantial imbroglio which can be summed up as follows:

  • PS5 HD Camera for Streaming and that’s it
  • PlayStation Camera (PS4) for PSVR only, with adapter to be requested from Sony

A good arcade stick for versus and retro

Phew, our arcade sticks escape the loss of compatibility and therefore invite themselves with pleasure on PlayStation 5, whether to play PS4 or PS5 games for that matter. In the absence of a model specific to the latter, and even if Hori seems ready to release a model in 2021, it is therefore towards the PS4 references that we must orient ourselves. The Hori models are all excellent and perfectly equipped, but our preference now goes to the Daija by Nacon which recently saw its official price drop below the € 150 mark. And at this price, the fightstick developed in partnership with champion Kayane has no real competition. Equipped with Full-Sanwa and equipped with a removable tray for easy modding and maintenance, it is a reference on Sony machines, while being perfectly compatible with open platforms such as Windows, Android, Mac or Linux.

Take flight with a HOTAS

What are the best accessories for the PS5?

Whether for civil, military or space flight simulations, playing with a HOTAS (a Joystick + throttle set) is always a real source of sensations. On PlayStation 5, the choice is not very wide for the moment since only one model can truly benefit from good precision and good comfort. It’s about T.Flight Hotas 4 de Thrustmaster, a model we tried for the release of Ace Combat 7 and which, for an entry-level, had known how to place itself as a real alternative to the game with the controller.

Keyboard mouse: the combo is no longer reserved for the PC

What are the best accessories for the PS5?

There are more and more keyboard / mouse users on consoles. It must be said that the advantages, when it comes to an FPS for example, are very real in terms of responsiveness and precision. For the choice of models, we invite you to take a look at our mouse tests, knowing that there is something for all budgets. Logitech, Razer, Steelseries, are brands that we generally trust, even in the entry level. For the mouse, we advise you to start with a not too expensive model, the Steelseries Rival 3, which for less than 40 euros is quite capable of bringing you a real improvement in in-game performance.

Keyboard side, not necessarily need to take out the mechanical keys to practice FPS. A gamer model, configurable without a computer, resistant to splashes and that is regularly found around 50 euros should do the trick: the Logitech G213 Prodigy. Be careful though, find out before buying whether your favorite game supports mouse / keyboard control.
