Along with the reveal of the PlayStation 5’s $ 399 and $ 499 price tag and the November 12th release date, Sony also announced how much the various accessories will cost for the upcoming console.
The most important price is Sony’s new DualSense controller, which will cost $ 69.99 for an additional gamepad. An increase of $ 10 compared to $ 59.99 MSRP for the DualShock 4 – obviously not all the fancy haptic feedback technology and adaptive triggers that Sony is adding come cheap. And the charging station, which can recharge two dual-disk controllers at once, costs $ 29.99.
Meanwhile, the Pulse 3D wireless headset – which will support Sony’s big push for 3D audio – is priced at $ 99.99, while the PlayStation 5’s media remote will cost $ 29.99.
Finally, the HD camera, which has dual 1080p lenses and allows players to broadcast themselves with the gameplay streamed directly from PlayStation 5, is priced at $ 59.99. Dual-lens systems seem to indicate that Sony has ambitions to use the new camera for VR applications at some points, although it is unclear whether the new camera will work with the current PlayStation VR headset. (Sony’s stuff for PlayStation 5 indicates that only the Playstation 4’s camera will work for the current PSVR, and promises that it will offer a free adapter for future customers.)
Various PlayStation 5 accessories are expected to be launched with the console on 12 November.
