How To Connect Your PSVR2 Controllers To Your PS5

The PSVR2 has arrived featuring new controllers with dual sense like the PlayStation 5, bringing a more immersive experience for players. However, setting up can be tricky, especially if you didn’t have a PSVR for the PlayStation 4.  In this guide, we will help walk you through the process of connecting your PSVR2 controllers to your PS5 console so you can begin playing VR games. 

Step 1: Turn on PlayStation 5 console and make sure it is updated

In order to connect your PSVR2 controllers to your PS5, you will need the console turned on and running as normal. Make sure your console is up-to-date with the latest firmware update as well, this will make sure that you don’t run into any issues along the way.

Step 2: Pair the controllers with your console.

To pair the PSVR2 controllers to your PS5, follow the steps below:

  1. Press and hold the PlayStation button on the controller until the light starts flashing. 
  2. Go to Settings > Accessories > Controllers > Bluetooth Accessories on your Playstation Console.
  3. Select the controller follow the process of pairing it.
  4. Repeat the steps for the second PSVR2 controller.

Once you’ve got both your controllers paired to the PS5, you can test them out and make sure they are functioning as they should. A good way to test the function is by launching a VR game and trying it out. You’ll soon see that the controllers have improved motion tracking, haptic feedback, and impressive adaptive triggers.

If your console isn’t detecting the controller, ensure the controller is in pairing mode (the light should be flashing). If the problem persists, restart your console and controller, then try the pairing process again.

Step 3: Make sure your controllers are charged.

A lot like any gaming controller, the PSVR2 is powered by an internal rechargeable battery, so you can easily plug the controllers into your PS5 and charge them. The only downside to this is, you can only charge them one at a time. But you will be able to check on the charging progress on your PS5 screen.

Keeping your hardware updated and ensuring your controllers are charged allows for a smoother gaming experience.
