Today Sony Interactive Entertainment revealed just that on the PlayStation Blog. Again, not a big deal, but players are used to PlayStation consoles to be black, and the PS5 being white made everybody wonder if Sony would even be making a more traditional-looking variant of the new console and new controller. After all, Sony has already unveiled the DualSense, and it stands to reason that numerous upcoming games will have features tailored around the latest technology.
Sony's Q1 FY2020 (April-June 2020) has been enormously successful for the company, with the COVID-19 pandemic boosting digital sales on the Playstation store.
Sony clearly ignored Backward Compatibility, an important feature that allows buyers to play their games that are meant to be played on previous generations of dedicated game consoles, on the newly acquired latest generation of the hardware. That will require a special adapter, but Sony says it will provide that free of charge for PSVR users.
SIE stated that specialty peripherals (racing wheels, flight sticks, arcade sticks) will work with PS5 and "supported PS4 games".

In her caption, she revealed that the couple's first child came at the end of July before writing a short but sweet message about the new baby.
TL;DR: if you're buying an accessory or peripheral in the hopes of using it for your PS5, contact the manufacturer first to see if it'll actually work the way you need it to.
There is a State of Play livestream coming up this month, but Sony has already stated that there won't be any PS5 news therein. The idea is that the company wants to make sure the older games work and run properly on the newer hardware, and that any games not available to play when the PS5 launched could be introduced further down the line. In addition, Sony says its Platinum and Gold wireless headsets, as well as third-party headsets that connect via USB or by way of a 3.5mm audio jack, will also work on the PS5, minus the headset companion app.
The PS5 controller both looks and feels different.
