The new release dates apply to the DualSense controller, Pulse 3D wireless headset, DualSense charging station, the updated HD camera, and media remote.

Following the new date, some retailers such as Target have updated their listings and have begun informing customers who pre-ordered any PS5 accessories that the release dates have changed.

IGN received an email from Target early this morning saying, “Thanks for your preorder. We’re just dropping a line to let you know the release date has changed to Fri, Oct 30.”

While the release date has been officially updated by Sony, some retailers such as Best Buy, Amazon, GameStop, and Walmart are still showing the original November 12th release date. It’s unclear if these retailers will be shipping items out early at this time.
