Sony Is Giving Away Free Adapters for PSVR on PS5

PlayStation 5 won’t support PSVR without an adapter, but Sony is giving them away for free. Starting today, you can submit a digital form with the serial number of your PSVR processor unit to request an adapter. There is a North American link and a link for other territories. At the time of writing, there appear to be some mixed reports from users about successful submissions. When you try typing in your serial number, it may give an error and advise you to call support. However, one of our staff was able to successfully submit the form without issue.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Demo Available Now

As part of the Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase today, we learned that a new Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity demo is available right now.

November 2020 PS Plus Games Include Shadow of War, Hollow Knight, and Bugsnax

Many were wondering how PlayStation 5 would integrate PS Plus, and it seems now we have a clearer answer. Today, Sony announced November 2020’s PS Plus lineup, which is one of the best lists we’ve seen in a while. Starting on Nov. 3, subscribers will gain access to Middle-earth: Shadow of War and Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition — both fantastic games in their own right, available till Nov. 30. The kicker is that Bugsnax, a game that was announced as a launch title, will also be available at no additional cost for PS Plus members on Nov. 12 — alongside the launch of the PS5. It seems possible we may be getting free PS5 games each month, as evidenced by the news of Destruction AllStars coming to the service in February 2021. In any case, Bugsnax will be available on PS Plus until Jan. 4, 2021.
