From PS5 controllers to cameras, here’s the accessories you need
A PlayStation 5 console often comes only with the bare essentials to get you started with game play.
But you'll always want a few extra gadgets to make your gaming experience better.
Many gamers are waiting for a restock after the consoles themselves went out-of-stock in UK shops.
Now might be the best time to have a look at the wide range of PS5 accessories, which have been slowly but surely getting better over time.
Not only do these accessories add to your own gaming experience, but they would make great gifts too.
From noise-cancelling headphones to cable-free chargers, here are some of the latest PS5 accessories for you to consider buying.
PlayStation 5 DualSense controller
With classic D-pad and circle, cross, triangle and square buttons, a PS5 DualSense wireless controller comes with brand new features including haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
Available for purchase at Amazon and Argos, the controller which costs £57 is much more responsive than previous PlayStation controllers and more comfortable to use due to its high-end mould as well.

The HD camera which costs around £40.99 is a must-have particularly if you’re interested in streaming.
The camera is easy to set up, all you need to do is plug it onto the relevant port on your PS5 and then hit the share button on your controller to start streaming.
Sony PlayStation 5 pulse 3D wireless headset
With noise cancellation and 12-hour battery life, the PlayStation 5 pulse 3D wireless headset is available at Currys for £89.99.
It allows you to immerse yourself fully into the games.
The headset uses a wireless adapter to connect to your console rather than Bluetooth which can be a minor drawback, and you need to remember to recharge it, but it’s comfy to wear even after a number of hours of playing.
Sony PlayStation 5 media remote
Games consoles aren’t solely for gaming any more.
Thanks to the PlayStation store you can download streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, YouTube and Spotify are now accessible via the PS5 remote which costs £24 and is more convenient and easier to user than a regular remote.
It has buttons for all the main media needs such as play, pause, fast forward, and so forth.
It also has dedicated buttons for the different services so that you can instantly launch them at the touch of a button.

The storage space of PS5 is often a problem as players are left with only about 667.2GB of usable space.
This 4TB external hard drive is the easiest and most affordable choice to maximise storage.
Costing £85, the drive will store and play backwards-compatible PS4 games freeing up plenty of space.
