The PlayStation 5 release is getting closer of course. The console will launch next month. We recently announced which games will be released at the launch of the console. In the meantime, more and more (3rd) party peripherals are becoming available that you can (pre)order before the release. We have listed the most interesting for you.
PS5 docking station
You can of course buy the official PS5 charging station, but you also already have third party stations which are even more ideal. The charging station below serves as a ‘standard’ for the unit itself and can charge 5 controllers at the same time. Two can be placed in the docking station and 3 can be charged via USB. So if you’re looking for a compact system, this is the ideal solution. You can order the docking station via Bol for 39.95 Euros.
PS5 face plates
The faceplates of the PlayStation 5 will be interchangeable. You can now order interchangeable faceplates via the Platestation5.com website, with which you can change the standard look of the console. The plates cost $39.99 and can be simply clicked on the console. You can simply click off the current faceplate. So Sony makes it easy to change the look of the console. The faceplates currently on offer are available in Limited Edition V1 Matt Black, Chromatic, Cherry Red, Jungle Camo and Indigo Blue styles. No doubt they won’t be the only faceplates coming out in the coming months.
You can of course use Blu-Ray movies on the PlayStation 5 that you can play via the optical drive. Then you have to buy the version with the Blu-Ray player on board. The Digital Only version cannot do this. But if you want to use movies or streaming services, you can use a special PS5 Remote, a remote control that Sony will offer itself. This remote makes it easier to fast forward, select the next video and browse through different movies. The remote costs 29.99 Euros and is available via Amazon, among other things, at the launch of the console.
PS5 Controller Skins
If you don’t like white, you can also change the look of the controller. With Gerrey’s skins you can completely change the look of the DualSense to black, but also to other colors. For 19,95 Euro you can buy skins like Camo Red, Camo Desert and Skin Verf White. There are already a lot more skins available for the peripherals, but you don’t see them as beautiful as this one yet. More information can be found here and you can also order them directly if you are interested.
Western Digital SSD (500GB, 1TB, 2TB)
Solid State Drives are expensive. So we can be happy that they are standard in the PS5 and Xbox Series X. But they are not great. They have a capacity of about 1 terabyte, not bad, but there is always room for more, as games quickly reach 50-100 gigabytes in size, especially with today’s patches. Western Digital currently offers SSDs that you can plug into the console. These are NVMe SSDs that are available in various sizes and extend the standard size of the PS5 storage capacity by 500 gig, 1 terabyte or even 2 terabyte. The SSDs are extremely fast because they are connected directly to the motherboard via a mortise lock. The SSDs cost consecutively $149.99, $229.99 and $449.99 and can be found via Western Digital’s website itself. The SSD operates at about 5.5GB/s bandwidth, which is quite a bit more than the standard PCIe 3.0 drive standard, which peaks at 3.5GB/s. The downside is the price tag. Sony has not officially recognized them as compatible with the PS5 yet, but they do work with the console. Sony will probably soon recognize them as unofficial compatible storage media.
ASTRO Gaming headset
First party hardware often costs more than third party hardware. The PS5 A20 Gaming headset, which also works on the PC and Xbox Series X, is a headset of size. ASTRO Gaming, the leader in premium video game equipment, has released the second generation of the award-winning ASTRO A20 Wireless Gaming Headset reveals. The ASTRO A20 is a multifunctional headset with a premium design, comfort and wireless connectivity at an affordable price. The A20 is professionally tuned to deliver audiophile gaming performance. Offering a wireless range of up to 15 meters, the headset is said to provide extreme comfort and produce lifelike game audio with an extended frequency range through the company’s Audio V2 technology.
