No. We recommend you use your favorite wireless headset to avoid getting tangled when you’re rocking out.


  • How can the Jaguar fold? Does it lock in place?

The Jaguar guitar controller folds back using a hinge system. The neck of the controller will lock in place when it is unfolded for gameplay. There is no locking system when the Jaguar guitar controller is folded.

  • When will the remainder of entitlements be available?

Bringing a library of 2,000+ songs across to a new console generation is something that neither we nor 1st party has ever done before, so we’re treading new ground here together. We currently support all game export entitlements and are working closely with them to get the rest of the entitlements up and running as soon as we can. We are also working with PlayStation® overseas at SIEE (Europe and Oceania) to bring expired content to users as soon as possible.
