Question about PS5 compatibility

Hi there, I've only ever had sim rigs for my PC but I think I want to get one for my PS5 (assuming I can ever buy one). Is there any information available about what systems will work with PS5?

Fanatec has confirmed compatibility of PS4 products will also apply to the PS5.

I believe the simulation is much better on PC than on PS4/5 or Xbox.

That's probably true, but I don't want to pay for a gaming PC just to run simulators. I am already planning to get the PS5, and I am not a sim junky. I just like playing sims in addition other video games.

Gran Tourismo 7 on PS5 should be epic.

Im on the other side, would like to try iRacing. But since Im on Ps4, nothing from Fanatec would work on PC (Xbox would).

All I could reuse is my seat. Would need PC, Fanatec PC gear + new monitor and stand. :/

i have a good pc.... but i'll probably get a ps5 and rig when GT7 comes out as well. GT-series is a nice cohesive package with alot of the major brands included. and sometimes modifying is just as fun as racing in these games.

for the price of a 3080 gtx (if you can find one) you can just buy a PS5. Granted, that 3080 will blow away the PS5 in terms of graphics.

Hi there - the launch CSL DD isn't PS compatible: https://simracingcockpit.com/fanatec-csl-dd/ - have you come across drivehub? I know that works with the CSL Elite but not sure about the CSL DD. In any case, Fanatec has announced they're working on PS4 / PS5 compatibility (read: getting a licence agreement sorted with Sony!) but IDK what shape that will take - firmware, an adapter, or a different flavour of CSL DD. The safe thing to do is wait or buy a DD1...

Yep, I built an all-new rig, with Trak Racer seat and triple monitor stand, pre-built gaming PC with a Ryzen 9 and 3080 card, triple 32" 1440p 144hz monitors, and Fanatec CSL wheel and pedals.

All in was just over $6k.

The GT DD Pro just opened for preorders today. It's just a CSL DD with Ps5 compatibility(in the wheelbase as usual) and a really ugly steering wheel lol. It looks to be a port over of the last official Gran Turismo steering wheel from Thrustmaster.

I placed an order for the GT dd pro, load cell pedal, and 8nm power supply. Managed to land a PS5 for retail this week as well, and added F1 2021. Excited!

I don't respect simulation programs because sometimes they don't work consistently. About the games. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart (Through Worlds) is probably the best game for the PS5 overall. This sequel to the long-running franchise combines gorgeous graphics, instant loading, varied gameplay, and a charming story. It also showcases the DualSense controller capabilities with some subtle tactile effects. It seems to be the most complete game for the PS5 so far. In between console nights, I play lol, for which I use tools to make it easier to upscale.
