Here’s the site to request a PS5 adaptor for PlayStation VR

The free adaptor is necessary for the current PlayStation Camera to work on PS5, and you’ll need to fill out a form

Hoping to take your PlayStation VR games for a spin on PS5? You’re going to want an adaptor while they’re being given out. Today, Sony opened the website for PlayStation VR owners to request them.

Long story short, the PlayStation 5 is getting a new HD Camera that isn’t compatible with the current PlayStation VR setup, so if you have the headset and want to use it on PS5, you’ll need a special adaptor for your existing (made-for-PS4) PlayStation Camera. Got it? Not really? There’s an FAQ.

The important thing to note is that “anyone who owns a PS VR headset” can request the PlayStation Camera adaptor (with a limit of one per household). All you need is the serial number found on the PlayStation VR processor unit the box that your HDMI cables go through. That said, at the time of writing, it’s been a struggle to get the form to cooperate. The CAPTCHA is buggy at the moment.

If you keep getting an error with a correctly typed serial number, just keep re-entering it. I had that problem and after several attempts, it eventually worked and I was able to enter my address info.

As for how the PlayStation Camera adaptor fits into the picture:

  • Step 1: Connect the PlayStation Camera adaptor to a USB Type-A port on the back of your PS5 console. The PlayStation Camera adaptor cannot be used with the PS4 console.
  • Step 2. Connect the PlayStation Camera to the AUX port on the PlayStation Camera adaptor.

Sony is expecting to begin shipping them in mid-November in most regions, and there’s no fee.
