PS5 peripherals including the DualSense controller have started appearing at Walmart stores across the United States.
Two Walmart customers pictured the accessories on the floor of their local stores on Monday, while stock tracking site BrickSeek indicates that DualSense is now in stock in multiple cities including Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco.
However, there has yet to be a confirmed case of a customer being able to purchase any of the listed PlayStation 5 peripherals from Walmart stores.
DualSenses reportedly started making their way into users’ hands last week, when at least one controller appeared for sale on a reseller website in the US.
The US release date for PlayStation 5 accessories was recently brought forward to October 30, almost two weeks before the next-gen console launches in the region on November 12.
Multiple retailers including Sony’s official store and Target have changed their release dates for the peripherals to October 30.
In the UK, retailer Simply Games recently claimed that Sony had brought forward the PS5 accessories release date to November 12, one week ahead of the console’s European launch.
Amazon UK and Game are also now listing November 12 as the release date for PS5 accessories including the DualSense controller.
Sony unveiled PlayStation 5‘s DualSense controller in April, calling it “a radical departure” from its previous DualShock pads. The controller features haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, a built-in microphone and updates to hand triggers, grips and the light bar.
PS4 controllers won’t work with PS5 games. However, DualShock 4 will work with PS4 games via backwards compatibility. Speciality peripherals, such as officially licensed racing wheels, arcade sticks and flight sticks, will work with PS5 games, Sony said.
The PlayStation 5 release date is November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. The rest of the world will get the console a week later on November 19.
PS5 is priced at $500/€500/£450 for the standard edition and $400/€400/£360 for the Digital Edition, with the only difference between them being the former’s inclusion of a disc drive.
