PlayStation 5 is one of the most anticipated announcements of the year and any details related to it can help you understand what it will offer. This time, the French Sony website ended up revealing new details about the DualShock 5 controller.
In what appears to have been a small mistake, this page confirmed that the controller developed for PlayStation 5 will be compatible with PS4 and PS4 Pro. When comparing these two consoles, it could be seen, momentarily, that both will support DualShock 4 and 5 .
It didn’t take long before this page was updated with the removal of this information. But as we always say, once on the internet, forever on the internet.
This information may have been accidentally posted by someone from Sony’s technical staff. There is also the possibility that it was intended to create excitement for the PlayStation 5 reveal. We will never know what caused this leak.
DualShock 5 backwards compatibility is not a surprise
It’s always good to find out a little more about Sony’s next console, but the compatibility of your controller with PS4 is not a surprise. This is because DualShock 4 is also compatible with PlayStation 3.
Additionally, the rumors say that the new controller for PlayStation 5 will be very similar to DualShock 4. Therefore, it would be strange if this accessory could not be used with PS4.
PlayStation 5 release date is not yet known
This week, Sony confirmed that it will not be attending the big E3 event. This great stage could be used for the presentation of PlayStation 5, but this will not be the case.
Thus the rumors that maintain that the new console from Sony will be presented already in February grow more. Its predecessor was also revealed that month, reaching the market only in late 2013.
Anyway, Sony has already confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will hit stores in late 2020. At that time, the PS5 will have direct competition from the Xbox Series X, which we still don’t know when it will be properly presented.
