You can play all PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR games on the new system.You can use the DualShock 4 controllers from the PlayStation 4 to play those games on PlayStation 5, but you need to use the new DualSense controller to play PlayStation 5 games. This adds a feature that offers resistance on the trigger buttons to emulate in-game actions like guns jamming.
