Just got a PS5? Add these accessories to your setup!

If you’re lucky enough to snag a PS5 over the holidays or on launch day for that matter, then there’s a good chance that you’ve started enjoying what next-gen gaming has to offer. I’m sure you already have the best PS5 games that you’re already playing, but if you want the ultimate next-gen console experience then getting the right accessories should also be on your list.

There aren’t a lot of accessories available for the PS5 at the moment, but here are some of the best ones that you can get for your PS5:

PS5 DualSense Controller and DualSense Charging Station – A no brainer, the DualSense is probably the best part of the PS5. From haptic feedback to adaptive triggers, having a second controller means that you always have a spare ready in case the battery runs out, or someone can you in two-player games.

Having two controllers also means you need to charge them once in a while, which is why getting the DualSense charging station is the best option for you. It can charge two controllers at the same time, where you can also dock the DualSense when it is not in use.

PlayStation HD Camera – I didn’t originally want the HD camera, but this accessory allows you to stream games straight from your console to Twitch or YouTube. It even supports background removal to fully customize your game broadcasts. 

Pulse 3D Wireless Headphones – The PS5’s 3D audio also offers a new way for you to enjoy games on headphones, and while it will work with any wired headset, it will only work wirelessly using the Pulse 3D Wireless headphones. Comfortable and support noise cancellation, these headphones also offer up to 12 hours of wireless listening on a full charge.

Razer Opus – While these noise-canceling wireless headphones are made for everyday use, they work perfectly well with the PS5 using the 3.5mm audio input. This also means you can enjoy the console’s 3D audio perfect for atmospheric surround sound.

WD_Black P50 Game Drive SSD – This SSD provides read speeds of up to 2000MB/s, perfect for storing those games and extending the PS5’s internal storage.

KontrolFreek – These special thumbsticks attach to the analog sticks of the DualSense controller and come in a variety of different designs that help your thumbs provide more precise in-game movements.

PlayStation 5 Shoulder Bag – The PS5 isn’t a small machine, which is why bringing it to your friend’s house on gaming night is always a hassle. This nice shoulder bag lets you store the console safely without putting it back in the box when you need to transport it. 

More accessories are slowly popping up so be on the lookout for new ones that you can buy to add to your PS5 gaming setup.
