The PS4 is now more than just a video game console. It can do all sorts of things, like stream live TV, and it even has a cloud DVR service as well. You can even jump right into the world of VR, but there are a few things that it doesn’t come with. Here are 7 accessories to get for your PS4 right now.

1. Fosmon Silicone Thumb Grip Caps

These thumb grips may be the difference between a win or a loss. Slap a set onto each of your DualShock thumb sticks and it might just up your game.

2. AdjustR

Unfortunately, you can’t adjust the volume of the standard headset that’s included with the PS4. But with the AdjustR allows you to do just that, while also letting you mute your microphone if desired.

3. PS4 Media Remote

Sure, the included DualShock controllers let you navigate the PS4, but wouldn’t it be easier to zip through menus on Netflix’s never-ending scroll with an old school remote? The answer is yes, and this affordable accessory let’s you do it.

4. Kootek Vertical Stand with Cooling Fan

Modern video game consoles aren’t exactly small, and they require quite a bit of real estate, but accessories like the Kootek Vertical Stand will not only keep your rig upright, while also keeping it cool. Even better, the Kootek includes two charging slots for your controllers.

5. BENGOO G9000 Stereo Gaming Headset

Sound design for video games has come a long way since the 8-bit days, and you’d better believe that a set of stereo headphones could make or break your next gaming adventure.

6. Nyko Data Bank

You can never have enough storage space for your PS4, especially with all the movie, music and video game saves. Upgrade your PS4 with Nyko’s Data Bank, which is capable of holding up to 2TB of total storage.

7. PlayStation VR

With over 100 VR titles at the ready, you simply need to plug the VR headset into your PS4 and you’ll be instantly immersed into a world you might not have ever imagined you’d be in, like the driver’s seat of an F1 car or onto the bridge of some far flung spaceship.
