Ever since its release, PS5 is all the rage in the gaming community, and there’s a good reason why. PS5 is the most advanced and next-gen console to date, packed with the best functionality that a gaming console can offer. And perhaps that’s the reason why PS5 is still short in supply. But if you have somehow managed to get your hands on this next-gen console, you should absolutely purchase the most recommended gaming accessories for PS5 to improve your gameplay.
In this article, we will list down the top gaming accessories for PS5 and discuss what makes them a must-have! So, let’s dive right in, shall we?
1. DualSense Wireless Controller
When searching for the best gaming accessories for PS5, the first thing you should consider is buying an extra DualSense Wireless Controller. Even though PS5 costs more than $500, it only comes with one controller, depriving you off the ability to play with your friends and family.
If you like playing multiplayer games with your family or often host parties, an extra DualSense controller might come handy. It can also be used when your primary controller runs out of battery due to binge gaming.
The DualSense Wireless controller has a sleek design matching the PS5 console. It features a headset jack, a built-in microphone, multiple sensors, and accent lights as indicators for various situations. The controller comes with haptic feedback in the form of dynamic vibrations that can make your experience immersive and simulate the in-game actions.
Priced at $69, an extra PS5 DualSense controller is a definite must-have for your console.
2. LG CX 4K OLED TV
Since PS5 now offers 4K, you should consider upgrading your UHD TV to a 4K display to make the most of your PS5. As someone who’s using PS5 with a 4K TV, let me tell you, the difference is PHENOMENAL. The frame rates are incredibly impressive, the colors are breathtaking, and the overall experience is true to life.
If you want to go all in with your money, the best 4K TV for PS5 is LG CX 4K OLED TV. Although quite expensive, this TV is one of the very few in the market that offer a 120 Hz refresh rate, allowing seamless transition between graphics. The colors on this display are extraordinarily rich and vibrant, making your gaming experience much more immersive.
However, the LG CX 4K OLED TV costs between $1400-$1800, which is three times more expensive than the PS5 itself. Therefore, if you don’t want to burn a hole in your wallet, you should consider buying a cheaper 4K TV like Samsung UE43TU7100 or TCL 5 Series.
3. Sony DualSense Charging Station
Sony DualSense Charging Station is a great dock if you own two DualSense controllers. This dock makes charging your controller quite easier by simply dropping it in the dock and picking it up once it has charged.

At a mere $30, this charging station is an investment worth making if you own two DualSense controllers.
