PS5 Accessories Might Begin Shipping as early as late October, before the PS5 launch

PS5 buyers may soon open their doors to an unexpected surprise–a preordered accessory absent from the next-gen system. Sony’s website currently indicates that it plans to ship certain PlayStation 5 accessories early, dating them for October 30.

According to the PlayStation website, the DualSense controller, HD CameraMedia RemoteDualSense Charging Station, and Pulse 3D Wireless Headset all release on October 30. This is two weeks before the PlayStation 5 launches on November 12.

A Twitter user named Mike Y. screenshot an email from PlayStation. The email said the company is excited to ship the accessories early. It’s unclear what accessories Mike will receive in the coming weeks, as the email simply says “PS5 Digital.”

ome retailers like Target also confirm the October 30 release date. Other stores, such as Best Buy and Walmart, still display a November 12 launch for accessories.

This comes not long after Sony finally unveiled the user interface for PlayStation 5, which looks to be snappier and more intuitive than previous iterations. There’s a new feature called Game Help that offers hints and tips baked right into the system’s interface. However, this feature is exclusive to PlayStation Plus subscribers, who also get access to the vault of classic PlayStation 4 games through the PS Plus Collection.
