Sony recently announced its PS5 where it is priced at $499 for the regular version, and $399 for the digital version. However, both versions will come with a single controller, also known as the DualSense controller, so what if you wanted to play a local co-op game with your friends? You’d need to buy a new controller.
So the question is, how much will a new DualSense controller cost you? According to Sony, DualSense controllers will be priced at $70 each. This isn’t too expensive, but it’s an additional cost you might want to take note of if you were planning on buying the PS5 and plan to play local co-op games with your friends.
The DualSense controllers are wireless and if you want to charge them, Sony is also selling an optional charging station that will be capable of charging two controllers at once for $30, so you might need to spend as much as $100 if you want to get the most out of it. Other accessories that Sony will be selling alongside the PS5 include a HD camera for streamers, a Pulse 3D wireless headset, and a media remote.
The Sony PS5 is currently slated to be released on the 12th of November 2020 for markets such as the US, and the rest of the world will get the console on the 19th of November.
