PlayStation 5 will support PS4 controller, but for playing PS4 games only

Sony has provided additional information on whether current PS4 accessories and peripherals will work with the upcoming PS5. The existing PS4 DualShock 4 controller won’t work with PS5 games as Sony believes that the upcoming new titles for the console should take advantage of the new features of the DualSense PS5 controller, including haptic feedback. The DualShock 4, however, will work with supported PS4 games through the PS5’s backward compatibility feature.“No, we believe that PS5 games should take advantage of the new capabilities and features we’re bringing to the platform, including the features of DualSense wireless controller”, Sony writes.
