It’s one of the year’s biggest sales, and a great opportunity to get next-gen ready! Here’s how.
PS5 doesn’t have an official release date just yet, however, the release window is Holiday 2020 – which would actually put it closer to Black Friday this year.
Be sure to bookmark this page, as we’ll be updating it with the latest deals for everything PS5 in the run-up to Amazon Prime Day 2020.
For now – let’s take a look at some PS5 compatible additions you can get your hands on early…and for less!
PS5 Backwards Compatibility
The term backwards compatibility has certainly been thrown around a lot with the arrival of Next-Gen.
When the term is applied to next-gen consoles, it’s a simple question of if you can use older-gen discs, controllers, and other accessories with them.
The PS5 is said to be backwards compatible with PS4 games, most headsets, and the Dual Shock Controller (but only for PS4 games which can be played on the PS5).
So if you’re looking to build a set-up ahead ready for when PS5 releases, there are few items you should consider at Amazon Prime Day 2020.
PS5 Ready TVs
The PS5 can play titles in up to 8K, which is some truly impressive top bar to have, however, when it comes to TVs there’s a decent amount of technical complexity to getting the absolute most out of the PS5.
What we will say is that Sony themselves are creating a batch of ‘Ready for PS5’ TVs to accommodate everything the PS5 can throw at it, as with all technology, there are bound to be ‘more’ compatible TVs after release.
But if you’re looking for a 8K TV, then Amazon Prime Day is great sale to check out. And with games still set to look amazing on a 4K TV, you can still get a great next-gen experience for less this year!

As mentioned, most wired and wireless headsets will be all good with the PS5, so Amazon Prime Day is a great chance to get a cracking deal on even premium quality gear.
There’s also a lot to look forward to with new advancements in audio technology in games, including the upcoming Unreal Engine 5’s 3D audio.
Next-gen will allow for even greater immersion into some of the most highly anticipated titles, like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and also bring a whole new element to online competitive play in games like Warzone and Fortnite.
As one of the most popular items in the sale, it’s worth planning ahead when it comes to headsets!
