If you’re looking to get the most out of your Sony Playstation 4 then perhaps you should consider a number of these awesome PS4 accessories that will most definitely enhance your overall playing experience. You can take advantage of some great pieces of immersive technology that will accompany your game system and to really bring a new dimension to your favourite games.
But before we delve in to the impressive array of current Sony side dishes let us take a quick glimpse at one of the most exciting future innovations that is still currently in development. Sony's Project Morpheus will hopefully be just one of the next great developments in the world of virtual reality.
Along with the highly publicised Oculus Rift we’re hoping that 2015 will herald a new age in VR accessories that’ll engage you with games, virtual worlds and landscapes like never before. Project Morpheus will include a 1080p head-mounted display, camera, motion sensors and will also be compatible with Sony’s DualShock 4 as well as some extra special 3D audio technology. Rumours were that the new headset would be arriving this summer, however, there is still no official word on any intended release just yet. Which unfortunately means that we’re just going to have to be a little more patient whilst Sony continue to tweak their newest gaming innovation.
So while we wait with bated breathe for the arrival of the sure-to-be VR hit we’ll just have to make do with the line-up of PS4 accessories currently available, and they’re certainly not to be sniffed at.
Is your girlfriend or partner sick and tired of the racket caused by the guns and explosions of your latest ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ session? Well if she wants an early night then we’d certainly suggest picking up the Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0. This great pair of headphones will not only eliminate the annoyance from a loved one but it will also enhance your audio experience of the game with its impressive 7.1 virtual surround sound setup. They’ll help isolate the sounds and music and will ensure that each and every little reverberation can be enjoyed by the player and no one else. However, they do come with an internal microphone so you can still chat, scream and shout during some live gameplay with friends. So now all your girlfriend will need is a way in which to silence you.
One of the best examples of interaction between a game system and a mobile device that we’ve seen is the use of the PS4 Remote Play system. For those who own a Sony Xperia smartphone or tablet now have the ability to stream their favourite Playstation games right to their handheld devices over their home Wi-Fi network. Simply link up the device to a DualShock 4 wireless controller and you can carry on playing your game anywhere in the house and away from a TV screen.
Perhaps it’s a nice day out and you fancied a quick game whilst sitting in your garden soaking up the sunshine. Maybe your housemate wants to watch a football match on the TV. Or you’re so addicted to your game you decide to continue your progress on a trip to the toilet. There’s an endless list of reasons as to why this is a greatly convenient extension for your PS4 and a brilliantly conceived combo of Sony services that also works as another major expansion to the world of mobile gaming. And thankfully even dealers and mobile phone retailers include special combo packages so you can now get a Free PS4 with Sony Xperia Contract’s (for UK only).
