Top PS5 accessories PS5 owners can buy today

1. PlayStation 5 DualSense Controller

PlayStation 5 Controller

If you are an avid PS5 gamer, the PlayStation 5 DualSense Controllers should be a part of your gaming stack. It is a major improvement compared to the DualSense 4 model in all regards. 

DualSense 4 uses haptic feedback to provide physical sensations that align with your in-game actions, using dual actuators in place of rumble motors. It can trigger an array of actions and also feels very different compared to DualShock 4. 

The pre-built headset and microphone jack coupled with a grippy texture will ensure that the controller has a feel-good factor when you hold it. 

Reasons to purchase:

  • Motion and touch controls
  • Adaptive triggers

Reasons to avoid:

  • The product is not at all sleek and quite bulky
  • Drift issues

The remote has everything you need in a remote to control all the main functions of your media center. It is also packed with dedicated streaming service buttons for Spotify, Netflix, YouTube, and more. It is a very neat, sleek, and well-designed product that matches the PS 5 like other PS 5 accessories manufactured by Sony. 

Reasons to purchase:

  • Design
  • Use it as a replacement for the controller when you are not gaming

Reasons to avoid:

  • Some standard remote buttons are glorified as dedicated buttons
