I've played more PS5 than I care to disclose but to get the best experience you need to give your console a glow-up. With Sony announcing a new slimline model too, my chunky console is starting to look a bit sorry so I'm looking to give it a makeover at a bargain price. That's where Amazon Prime Day comes in.
There are a heap of (first and third-party) PS5 accessories and add-ons that can change your gaming experience. Here are the five I'm on the hunt for this sale season.
OIVO PS5 Charging Station:
was £25 now £17 at Amazon
If like me, you're always juggling which controller actually has battery left, the OIVO charging station is the answer. Connecting via USB to either the front or back of the console, you can actually charge two controllers at once and keep playing with a third pad. 2 hours should see both controllers raring to go.
Sony INZONE H3 Gaming Headset:
was £89 now £50 at Amazon
It's possible to spend hundreds on getting the right headset, but Sony's more affordable effort is now even cheaper. Our review noted their comfortable fit and excellent 360-degree sound. They work for both PS5 and PC too.
DualSense Edge Wireless Controller: now £189 at TheGameCollection.com
The ultimate PS5 controller hasn't budged in price on Amazon, but luckily TheGameCollection have saved the day. This pro controller features customisable profiles to switch between for different games/users, adjustable haptic feedback and a host of other upgrades on the regular DualSense pad.
Samsung 990 PRO 2TB SSD with Heatsink:
was £191 now £128 at Amazon
If you're tired of juggling installs to free up space on your PS5, why not just add more than double the original storage to your console? This ultra-fast Samsung SSD has 2TB of storage, you might never run out of space again.
Venom PS5 deluxe Console Carry Case: was £59 now £49 at Amazon
If like me you often take your PS5 on the go, then you'll realise just how big and cumbersome it is. This carry case, makes transporting your console easy however with space for the PS5 itself and dedicated compartments for your controllers and headset.
