If you just got a new PS5 controller and are wondering how to connect it to your PlayStation 5, it’s actually a very quick and easy process. The first thing you need to do is get the little cord that came with your PS5. One end looks like a USB and the other end plugs into the controller.

Once you have the cord, simply plug one end into the PS5 controller and the other end to the PlayStation 5. Make sure your PS5 is on before proceeding. To connect the controller, click the small Sony button on the controller. This is all you need to do if you’re connecting the first controller.

If you want to connect an additional controller, you’ll need to sign out of PlayStation with your old controller first. Once you’ve signed out, go to your profile and click “log out.” After you’ve logged out, press the Sony button on the new controller and click “update” when prompted. Once the update is finished, your new controller is ready to use.

Keep in mind that in the home menu, you can only use one controller at a time, but when you’re in an actual game, you can use both controllers. The cord that comes with the PS5 controller also doubles as a charging cord.

Overall, connecting your new PS5 controller is a quick and easy process. So, enjoy your gaming experience with your new controller and don’t forget to check out our PS5 tutorials playlist for more tips and tricks.
