Playstation 5: How To Use PSVR With The PS5 | VR Backwards Compatibility Guide

The Playstation 5 promises 99% backwards compatibility with the PS4, and that includes the full library of PSVR games. But before you can play those PSVR games on PS5, you’ll need a special camera adaptor add-on first. Sony is ready to provide the adaptor totally free of charge.

To get a free adaptor for the PS Camera, you just need to go to the Sony Support site, input some info, and get your adaptor shipped to you. It’s really free, but the website is getting seriously slammed by PSVR owners looking to bring their libraries to the PS5. You might have to wait a day or two until the crowd calms down and the websites load as intended.
