TVs for PS5

The PS5 is an absolute powerhouse, and can run games in extremely high frame rates, and impressive resolution. 8K gaming looks set to be supported, meaning games will really come alive.

Sony has even gone so far as to make a TV specifically for PS5 gaming! Expect to see the ‘ready for PS5’ tagline being thrown around in the run-up to Black Friday!

PS5 Controllers

Unlike Xbox Series X, which is backwards compatible with Xbox One controllers, the PS5 is a little different.

PS4 DualShock 4 controllers can be used on PS5, but only with backwards-compatible PS4 games.

MAKES SENSE! The new and improved PS5 controller looks incredibly impressive!

That means that you can use a PS4 controller with PS4 games that can be played on PS5.

In short, if you want to get the most out of PS5, you’re probably better off grabbing a DualSense Controller! They’re worth the investment also, with some amazing enhancements in haptic feedback, in addition to a built-in mic!

PS5 Gaming Headsets

Headsets are some of the most popular items in sales – there’s something for everyone in terms of budget, design and quality.

The big question is, will headsets out now work with PS5? The good news is if they can be plugged in with a USB, a 3.5 mm jack, or are wireless – they’re good to go.

Media Remote

We’ve all been there, trying to pause a movie and having to press just about every button on the controller to get the film to stop – usually accidentally returning to the main menu in the process. 

Suffer no longer thanks to the official PS5 Media Remote that will allow you to control movies and streaming service with ease, thanks to its classic remote control layout.

ACTUALLY, IT’S REMOTELY POSSIBLE! You should be able to bag one of these slick accessories

This is also a great buy if your console will be regularly used by people who aren’t gamers to watch the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime, allowing them to watch the content they want without the headache of trying to switch on/off a controller.

HD Camera

The PS4 camera was almost impossible to get hold off for the first few months of the console’s life cycle, and we expect the same will likely happen with the PS5’s improved HD Camera. 

The camera is compatible with streaming services such as Twitch, allowing you to broadcast yourself along with your gameplay in sharp HD. 

Don’t make the mistake of missing out on one of these camera’s they may become tricky to get a hold of after launch.

DualSense Charging Station

It’s every gamer’s nightmare to be in the middle of a difficult boss battle or a few kills away from a Victory Royale and your controller dies – avoid that horrific situation with this charging station. 

Not too much to say about this one, it’s a charging station it pretty much does exactly what you’d expect – charges two DualSense controllers simultaneously so you’ve always got a controller with juice. 

GET IN LINE! The docking station showcases your controllers front and centre

Perhaps a tad expensive for what it is, but if you hate being tendered to your console while you charge up your controllers then it’s probably worth the cost.
