    Sometimes PlayStation 5 information comes from unexpected places. First details about the console were unveiled in a surprise Wired interview, and now more information about the PS5 controller has been found via a page on PlayStation France that compares the models of PS4 systems.

    Under the section “Compatabilitie DualShock” (which translates to DualShock Compatability), the official PlayStation France website lists “DS4/DS5” for every PS4 model (base, slim, and Pro). Basically confirming what we all know, it looks like the PS5 controller will be called the DualShock 5. The PlayStation France page seems to indicate that the DualShock 5 will be backwards compatible and work with the PS4 as well. It also strengthens reports that most PS4 accessories, including the DualShock 4, will be forward compatible with the PS5.

    This also allows them to stop making PS4 controllers. Saves them a ton of money.
