The French version of the PlayStation site may have leaked an unannounced feature of the PS5 controller. A comparison table for all versions of the PS4 said that the consoles all work with “DS4 / DS5”. The table doesn’t say what “DS5” is but it likely means DualShock 5, or the PS5 controller.
An Opportune Screenshot
The information has been removed from the site since users on ResetERA first saw it and took a screenshot. PlayStation France may have just posted the information early. Sony could be planning to announce the DualShock 5’s backward compatibility at the rumored PS5 reveal event.
How It Compares to Microsoft
The feature is cool but it’s not as exciting as Microsoft’s plans for its controllers. Microsoft’s Xbox One controllers can be customized to add messages and different colors. Sony may have sold more PS4s, but Microsoft may have sold more controllers.
