Though the PS4 is an incredible console all by itself, there is a whole host of accessories out there which can really enhance your gaming experience. In fact, some games are meant to be played using accessories like steering wheels and headsets, so you could be limiting your enjoyment by not having them. But you should take the time to choose the right extras that are both high-quality and long-lasting.

Here is a brief overview of some of the types of accessories that you could invest in.


The right headset can help you to play your games with much more clarity and can even make you a better all-round gamer. Sony’s Platinum Wireless headphones provide a balanced audio performance so that you will be able to hear exactly what is going on at all times.

An alternative option is Logitech’s G231 Prodigy headset which is both comfortable and easy to set up. Once you upgrade from your standard PS4 headphones, you will never want to switch back again!

Steering Wheels

When you are tearing down roads at a couple of hundred miles per hour, you want to feel like you are actually in control of your vehicle and that is where the right steering wheel comes in. Again, Logitech are leaders in this field with their Driving Force G29. Both comfortable to hold and smooth in operation, it really does upgrade your driving experience.

Another option is the Thrustmaster T300 RS steering wheel which doesn’t have the pedals, but its force feedback ensures that you really feel every bump in the road. And to complete the package, look for the best gaming chair. You will be a much better gamer when sitting upright rather than sprawled back on your sofa!  

Charging Units

There is nothing more frustrating than sitting down to a gaming session, only to find that your controllers are dead. A charging unit like the PowerA DualShock 4 Dual Charger ensures that this is no longer the case, so you can keep two gamepads fully charged at all times. When you finish playing, you just have to pop your controllers in and they will be all ready to go next time.

Sitting next to the TV while your controllers charge will be a thing of the past!

Virtual Reality

Virtual reality seems to be the direction in which gaming is heading, so you can get ahead of the act with the PlayStation VR. Though not everyone is convinced at the moment, there is no doubt that it provides an immersive gaming experience and there are many more games coming that will make the most of this technology. And you should also look to invest in the PlayStation Camera as well, which is also an accessory that looks to be big in the future.

Hopefully the list above gives you a good overview of just some of the gaming accessories out there that can really upgrade your PS4 experience.
