Here’s a look at the PlayStation 5 camera adaptor and details of how to get one

Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida has tweeted pictures giving us our first look at the PlayStation 5 camera adaptor that will let you use your PlayStation 4 camera on your new console. You need the adaptor if you are going to be using PlayStation VR on PS5 as the new PS5 camera does not work with PSVR – a very silly decision by Sony.

The adaptor is going to take up on the USB ports on the console, and since another one is used by the PSVR headset that’s half of the four ports on the console taken by PSVR. The PS5 has three USB-A ports, one on the front of the console and two on the back, and one USB-C port on the front.


The launch of the PlayStation 5 camera adaptor did not go well with the site failing to register Capturs and details, but everything seems to be working now and you can get yours by heading to the PlayStation website.

The PlayStation 5 camera adaptor might be the only bit of kit you are getting in the near future if you were planning to pick up your console from a high street retailer, the UK seems to be heading to Lockdown 2: Electric Booglaloo which means GAME and other stores will be closed when the PlayStation 5, and indeed the Xbox Series X, launch.

Sony recently revealed the accessibility options that will be built into the PlayStation 5 system software at launch, taking the already broad options available for the PlayStation 4 and expanding them further.

Text to speech, inverting colours, custom button assignments and more are present, but the PS5 will also offer voice dictation through the DualSense controller or other connected microphone, a Screen Reader feature to speak on-screen text, and text to speech for party chats. There will also be colour correction to allow users to adjust colours on a system level, and the ability to set presets that supporting games can load up automatically as they launch.

Obviously, this also extends to the DualSense controller as well, with the PS5 letting you reduce or completely disable the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers built into the controller, just as you can turn the rumble feature off for the DualShock 4 on PS4.

  1. I got through on the website and ordered one so now i have received the not-so-reassuring email saying that the adapter should ship mid-November if my application is accepted.. :/

    • I got the same email last week. Sony won’t want to send everyone with a PSVR an adapter so they must be waiting to see who registers a PS5 to their account.

      You did register your PSVR to your Sony account when you bought it?

      • I don’t remember ever doing that. How do you register it?

      • I don’t know if it matters if you’ve registered your PSVR (I put that there as a joke) or not, they may ask for proof of PS5 purchase or something.

        I doubt many folk register their stuff but the information will be in the manual/info that comes with the PSVR.

      • With the news of limited availability of PS5 at launch – and beyond – i can almost believe that they might hold the adapters back for whomever actually manages to acquire a PS5 in 2020! But in the meantime, they can see how many PSVR owners intend to upgrade to PS5 by the number of (validated) adapter requests.
        But i guess that’s it, some sort of validation has to occur before they ship them out. And it certainly wouldn’t do any harm to register my PSVR so i’ll look into that.

  2. Got through! Surprisingly easy to do!
