If you were lucky enough to grab a Sony PlayStation 5 console during the PS5 restock, then congrats on your luck (and patience). But now is the time to ask yourself — which accessories will upgrade the gaming experience?
Sure, the PS5 console package comes complete with one wireless PS5 DualSense controller, but one controller is never enough. Buy an extra (or two!) for in-person, multiplayer action. Or, keep an extra (or two!) handy for when the original is broken following a display of old-fashioned gaming rage.
While white is the standard color for the PS5 console – and the PS5 controller – Sony offers the DualSense in a variety of big, bold colors, including red (pictured), purple and black. On Amazon, prices vary. At last look, the pink and blue models (like the standard white) ran a few dollars cheaper than the red, purple and black ones.
Released last year, the PS5-compatible Logitech G923 racing wheel-style controller is an upgrade over the reliable PS5-compatible Logitech G29. "I love the refinements over the old wheel," raves one five-star Amazon review (from a verified G923 customer, natch). "From the outside it looks very similar… but it has been improved internally." The review goes onto note that the wheel will withstand all the twists and turns of the brand-new Gran Turismo 7. The G923 racing wheel comes complete with a set of pedals.
Also from Sony, this remote allows you to stream Netflix, Disney+ and more from your PS5 with the touch of a button. It also makes powering up, powering off and adjusting the volume a breeze. It's great for those who use their PlayStation as their primary media player.
If you took our advice and got an extra PS5 DualSense controller, then you've got two PS5 controllers to charge. No worries! This charging station from Sony just so happens to accommodate two PS5 controllers. Plug in the device via the supplied AC adaptor, click your DualSense controllers into place and – boom! – you're on your way (and all without having to use one of your PS5's precious USB ports).
Take your next gameplay broadcast to the next level with this PS5-compatible camera from Sony. It delivers 1080p, or full HD, picture quality. With a PlayStation Network account, you can activate the camera via a button on your PS5 DualSense controller.
