The PlayStation 5 and the PS5 Digital Edition have been available around the world for ten days now. Big success for Sony which achieved the best launch in their history, but also in the history of video game consoles, allowing millions of players to enjoy their new console with the latest games of the moment such as Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Demon’s Souls, Spider-Man Miles Morales or Bugsnax.

But the particularity of this PS5 is that it can also be backwards compatible with more than 99% of PS4 games. And naturally, with the accessories too. Thus, it is possible to use your PlayStation VR (PSVR) headset to play your favorite games like the last one Star Wars Squadrons, but also Beat saber, Moss or Dreams (and many others).

However, your VR headset will only be able to work if you have a special adapter to plug in your PS4 camera (since the PSVR is not compatible with the new PS5 camera). But don’t panic, Sony offers you to order (free) this adapter to receive directly at your home!

The first step in ordering your adapter (for free) will be to go to the official PlayStation website at this address.

You will be asked to validate that you are not a robot by having read the terms of use. Then, you will be prompted to enter the serial number of your PlayStation VR headset. The goal of this manipulation is therefore to prove that you are the owner of a virtual reality headset to avoid unnecessary shipments.

You’ll find the serial number on the back of your external PSVR box (which you plug into the camera, your PS4, and your TV). It is not complicated to find the serial number since there is only one barcode on the back of the case.

Once your address has been entered, validate and it’s (already) finished! No need for bank details, Sony will take care of offering you the adapter and sending it to you free of charge. However, due to a large number of requests, it is necessary to wait between 10 and 20 days before receiving it.
