Okay, last post I’ve covered PC accessories for gaming. This time, I’ll be covering gaming accessories for the PS4! Before anything else, I would like to admit one thing: I am once a PC Gamer. I begrudgingly bought a PS4 because at the time, Red Dead Redemption 2 just came out, and I was salty because it’s only a console-exclusive game. Needless to say, I fell in love with the PS4, especially when I bought games such as the Assassin’s Creed games, Shadow Of The Collossus, For Honor, God Of War, etc. I now game regularly with my PS4, even moreso than my PC. Funny how that works.
Anyway, without further ado, here are some gaming accessories for PS4 that is a must buy for young and old gamers alike!
(Buying through the links in this post can help me get Mcdonalds. Read here for more info)
We can’t start out a list for gaming accessories for the PS4 without mentioning the essentials. This beauty is designed for the gamer in us. It’s sleek, easy to use, responsive, and looks cool. It comes in many colors, and some even have designs on them! Really awesome. Your PS4 comes with one controller, but it won’t hurt to buy another. You can use it as a spare, or another controller for another player. You can’t go wrong with this one.
- Precision control, offers absolute control over all games
- Share your greatest gaming moments as easy as a press of a button with the Share button, conveniently located on the controller. Upload videos and screenshots directly from your PS4
- Innovative features like the touch pad, integrated light bar, and built in speaker offer new ways to experience your favorite games
- Charge efficiently by plugging in your controller to your PS4 with a USB cable (type-A to Micro-B Sold Separately)
Let’s be real: playing a first person shooter game on a PS4 is hard. You would have less control with your aiming, your movement, your shooting. A mouse and keyboard is still the best way to play a FPS game. But what if you don’t have a gaming PC, and your favorite FPS games are on your PS4? Well look no further than the Hori TAC Pro Type M2. This badboy emulates a PC-style gaming for your PS4. Essentially, you’ll be playing like you’re playing on a computer. If you’re a serious gamer who is always looking for that sweet, sweet, chicken dinner (PUBG fans anyone?), this is the perfect accessory for you.

- Brings PC-style control to PS4, perfect for first person shooter games such as PUBG, Call Of Duty, DOOM, Battlefield, Fortnite, Apex Legends, etc.

On my other post discussing the best accessories for PC gaming, I’ve covered a racing wheel designed especially for driving simulator games and racing games. Well, here’s one for the PS4! Created by Logitech, this racing wheel lets you experience a whole new way of playing racing games and driving simulation games on your PS4! The controller is a good way to play it, but it lacks the immersion. The racing wheel is not just a better alternative, it’s practically essential to have it.
- Realistic steering and pedal action for the latest racing titles for the PS4
- Durable, steel ball bearings, stainless steel shifter and foot pedals, hand stitched leather wheel grip
- Dual motor force feedback: Realistically simulates a driving and racing experience with smooth, silent helical gearing
- Directional pad, console buttons, paddle shifters and LED indicator lights are conveniently located on the wheel for easy controls access
- Responsive floor pedal unit: Accelerate, brake and change gears while realistically simulating the feeling of an actual car.

If you really want to feel like the hardcore gamer you are and still stick to playing a first person shooter game with a controller, then this is the accessory for you. These are paddles that are attachable to your PS4 controller, and you can map them special controls (MODS) to fit your playstyle. If you really want a PS4 experience with FPS games and not rely on a mouse and keyboard setup, then you might’ve just found the best accessory for you.
- Assign any button to the paddles, at any time. Doesn’t require any apps or any connection to a computer. Configuration software also available.
- Avoid interference with a 10ft lag free wired connection to retain that competitive edge in online gaming and tournaments
- Hundreds of MOD combinations built right in to map to your paddles. Some MODS include Rapid Fire, Burst Fire, Drop Shot, Quick Scope, Auto Run, even Turbo 2.0 and so many more.
- 3.5mm headset audio compatible with controller model CUH-ZCT2 and later.
- CUH-ZCT1 controller NOT supported for 3.5mm headset audio – USB headset required.
I know what you’re thinking, “I’ve already got a controller, and this one looks and feels the same as the original, so what makes this different?”. Well that’s a good question. Let me tell you this: Who doesn’t want an upgraded controller? This one has all the features of the original, amplified. Just read the features and you’ll see what I mean.

PS4 players all know the hassle of relaying messages with the controller. Oftentimes you have to push buttons many times just to get to a letter. It’s a hassle, especially when using in-game chat. This will certainly reduce gaming performance. Imagine the frustration when you get killed because you’re typing a message.

Playing games with your PS4 with a long time can really take a toll on the console. Overheating is the primary concern, especially when you’ve been gaming for hours nonstop. It may permanently damage your PS4, which is not cool (get it?). Well, not to worry, because the OIVO Cooler is here!

All gamers want quality sound, that is a given. We use sound for a variety of ways: to determine an enemy’s position (especially in FPS games), to be immersed in a game’s ambience sound and music (especially with single player story driven games), and speak and hear teammates for communication (again, most FPS games or strategy/team oriented games). Sound is essential for a gamer to perform to the best of his/her ability, and this headset will guarantee it.
