Amazon UK move the release date of the PS5 DualSense controller to November 12th

Good news if you live in the UK, you will get you PlayStation 5 camera, media remote, games and now DualSense controller a week early on November 12th, the same day as the they are released in North America. Amazon are sending out emails with the following message:

We have received new release date information related to the order you placed on September 17 2020

The items listed below will actually be dispatched sooner than we had originally expected based on the new release date:

“PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controller”
Previous estimated arrival date: November 19 2020
New estimated arrival date: November 12 2020

The one thing you will not get is a console, but there’s still time for that to change, no doubt the PS5 consoles will be in the Amazon warehouse a good while before they are shipped so you never know, Sony may change the release date of the console as well.


Earlier this week Sony finally unveiled the PlayStation UI and user experience, presenting an 11 minute video that dives into the various new features, the new visual design and other facets of the next-gen console’s system software.

Sony recently updated the PlayStation 5 FAQ and revealed that if you have bought one of those snazzy new HD cameras for the PlayStation 5 you won’t be able to use for your PlayStation 4 VR games.

The HD Camera is not compatible with PS4 games – please connect a PlayStation Camera via a PlayStation®Camera adaptor.

Sony state that the “overwhelming majority” of PS4 games will still work and many of them will benefit from the added power of the new console. The PS5’s Game Boost feature will make select PS4 games run at higher or smoother frame rates, and seems to be applied across the board.

However, that comes with some caveats and advisories:

  • Some functionalities that were available on the PS4 console may not be available on PS5 consoles. In addition, some PS4 games may exhibit errors or unexpected behavior when played on PS5 consoles.
  • Before purchasing add-ons to play with your PS4 games on PS5 consoles, please try to boot and play your PS4 games on your PS5 console to see if you are happy with the play experience.
  • Please note, playing PS VR games on a PS5 console requires a PlayStation VR headset, a PS camera (sold separately from PS5 console) and a PS camera adaptor (no purchase required).
  • Always update your PS5 console to the latest version of the system software.
