Alongside the reveal of the PlayStation 5s $399 and $499 price tags and November 12th release date, Sony also announced how much the various accessories for the upcoming console will cost.

The most important price is that of Sonys new DualSense controller, which will cost $69.99 for additional gamepads. Thats a $10 increase compared to the $59.99 MSRP for the DualShock 4  apparently all the fancy haptic feedback technology and adaptive triggers that Sony is adding dont come cheap. And the charging station, which can recharge two DualSense controllers at once, is set to cost $29.99.

Meanwhile, the Pulse 3D wireless headset  which will support Sonys big push for 3D audio  is set to cost $99.99, while the PlayStation 5s media remote will cost $29.99.

Lastly, the HD Camera, which features dual 1080p lenses and allows for players to broadcast themselves alongside streamed gameplay directly from the PlayStation 5, is set to cost $59.99. The dual-lens system would seem to indicate the Sony has ambitions to use the new camera for VR applications at some point, although its not clear whether the new camera will work with the existing PlayStation VR headset. (Sonys accessories for the the PlayStation 5 seems to indicate that only the Playstation 4s camera will work for the current PSVR, and promises that itll be offering a free adapter for customers in the future.)

The various PlayStation 5 accessories are expected to launch alongside the console on November 12th.
