2020 may feel like its been 8 years long, but we’re finally getting to the end of it.
And, of course, the end of the year means it’s the holiday season, and you’re probably searching all over the internet for the perfect gift for your loved ones. If that loved one happens to be a PS4, then we’ve got a great list for you.
These six accessories are must-haves for any PlayStation 4 gamer.
PlayStation 4 Chat Pad
If you or your loved one does a lot of online gaming, that means there’s likely a lot of chatting involved. Typing out on an on-screen keyboard can be difficult, but with this chat pad, it becomes a doddle. It’s a full keyboard that attaches to the bottom of the DualShock 4, allowing you to easily type out messages. No more spending ten minutes typing out, “haha. You suck.” It’s a really cool little gadget that is sure to come in handy.
PlayStation 4 Cooling Stand
When we saw this cooling stand the first thing we thought was, “How do we not have this yet?” This PlayStation 4 cooling stand comes with a spot for your PlayStation, your controllers, your games and more. And it has a cooling fan that keeps your PS4 cool. It’s a great way to keep things organised.
PlayStation 4 Performance Thumbsticks
Your PS4 controller’s thumbsticks can get pretty beat up if you use them a lot. These performance thumbsticks are a great stocking stuffer for the gamer in your life. They cover up the thumbsticks to protect not only them, but those precious gaming thumbs too. You can find them in a million different colours as well if you’re worried about clashing.
External Hard Drive
One of the biggest complaints you’re going to hear from most PS4 owners is that they’re running out of room on their console. Especially those of us with 500GB consoles. It doesn’t take that many games to fill up 500GB with how large games are nowadays. An external hard drive makes a fantastic gift for any PS4 owner. They’re available in a variety of sizes, but this one is a slimline 2TB hard drive, which is ample space for most gamers. Plus, it’s PlayStation-branded, ensuring everything matches (but any USB-powered external HDD will work – it doesn’t need to be licensed by Sony).
PlayStation 4 Controller Charger
If you’ve grown tired of constantly having to leave your PS4 on rest mode to charge your controllers, then this is the perfect gift for you or the PlayStation owner in your life. This charging cradle charges two controllers; you simply place the controllers in the designated slot, walk away and let it do its thing. This is absolutely perfect for someone who might want to put away their controller and not think about it again until the next time they pick one up to play something.
Nacon Revolution Unlimited Pro Controller
If you’re a bit flashy, then the Nacon Revolution Unlimited Pro controller is well worth considering. It’s a premium controller for PS4, complete with interchangable thumbsticks, customisable paddles on the back, and a premium build quality. You can opt for the original black design, or Call of Duty fans can pick up this Cold War-themed controller, which we just love. Whichever one you choose, it comes with a premium braided USB-C cable and a storage case.
