PlayStation 5 Mouse & Keyboard Support Confirmed

Sony has updated today the FAQ section dedicated to PlayStation 5, the new next-gen console whose debut is scheduled here on November 12th, 2020. Among the most relevant details of those that the Japanese company has added to the frequently asked questions there is undoubtedly the answer regarding the possibility or not to connect the keyboard and mouse to the PlayStation 5 console.

Well, Sony has confirmed its support. This is the company’s official response published in the PS5 FAQ section: “Yes, USB and Bluetooth keyboards and mice are supported at a system level, though game developers will decide whether to support at a game level.”

As expected, therefore, although the PlayStation 5 console will be able to guarantee mouse and keyboard support, however, the developers will determine, for every single game, the support for these devices. In any case, a virtual keyboard will be available, as on PS3 and PS Vita. Both mouse and keyboard can be connected to the console either via USB or via Bluetooth.

Before closing, we invite you to take a look at the most relevant details that Sony has published in the new FAQ section dedicated to PlayStation 5. Do you feel like next-gen?
