PlayStation 5’s hidden web browser works with a USB mouse – well, if you access it from within free-to-play title War Thunder, anyway. As many of you will know, while it’s gated off, Sony’s next-gen console does have a web browser – send a hyperlink in a Messages thread, for example, and you’ll be able to click it. You can even position web pages next to your games, allowing you to watch YouTube videos while you play.
And now, as alluded to above, one Reddit user has discovered USB mouse support within the browser. It works because War Thunder includes full keyboard and mouse support, so the functionality is “enabled” when the link is clicked. Nevertheless, this is a neat discovery, and it makes us wish Sony would just unlock the app for general use. We know it’s worried about security concerns here, but we do miss being able to pull up Push Square while playing.
