Few more months. . .

Sony clears major confusion with PS5 DualSense controller. This week, revealed the an all-new 360-degree look at their upcoming DualSense controller for the PlayStation 5.

Prior to the unveil, there had been chatter that the new PS5 controller, would incorporate an expansion to the device. For those that remember, PS4 featured back buttons and figures on their DualShock 4 back button attachment.

Many were getting excited on a new add-on for the next-gen system, but the new 360-look shuts down all rumors. This week, Sony also detailed how PS4 peripheral and accessories will work on the PlayStation 5. Almost everything, except controllers, will work on the upcoming PS5 console.

• Specialty peripherals, such as officially licensed racing wheels, arcade sticks, and flight sticks, will work with PS5 games and supported PS4 games.

• The Platinum and Gold Wireless Headsets, as well as third-party headsets that connect via USB port or audio jack, will work on PS5 (the headset companion app is not compatible with PS5).
