Best Accessories for Console Gamers in 2024


The WD Black SN850X NVMe is a compatible solid-state drive for the PS5. Installing it can improve your storage and game performance. However, you need to install it manually. If you don’t know how to install a solid-state drive on a console, it’s recommended to look up a tutorial or have someone experienced help out, as you have to open up your PS5. If you are using an Xbox Series X, it uses a WD Black 512GB expansion card instead. You only have to plug and play this card to use it.

Xbox Elite Series 2 Core Controller & 3 Months Game Pass Ultimate

The Xbox Elite Series 2 Controller is the top-tier controller for the Xbox Series X, and it is even bundled with a 3-month Game Pass Ultimate. Not only do you get a great controller, but you also get all of the latest releases that hit the Game Pass. Most gamers tend to overlook subscription-based passes, but Xbox’s Game Pass actually has the most value out of all the gaming subscription models in the market.

Turtle Beach Recon 50 Wired Gaming Headset

The Turtle Beach Recon 50 Gaming Headset has been out there for several years as one of the best gaming headsets for consoles. It has an adjustable microphone sensitivity, a lightweight design, and surround sound for consoles. The price is at its lowest point, and it is probably the cheapest product on the list. For a gaming headset, that says a lot.

Snpurdiri Wired Gaming Keyboard

The Snpurdiri Wired Gaming Keyboard is designed as a compact keyboard because it is only 60% of the size of an average gaming keyboard. By removing the Numpad and putting the absolute minimum of usable keys, the Snpurdiri keyboard is perfect for console users who just want to use a keyboard to type faster. There are so many tedious things on the console that really need a keyboard, like inputting your login details, messaging players, searching on the console’s apps, and more.

Aquidap USB Hub for PS5

The Aquidap USB Hub boasts four USB slots, a single USB charging port, and another USB-C port for good measure. Its minimalistic design makes the hub fit any gaming setup. It also features high-speed charging that is only compatible with the PS5. With all the accessories on the list, you might need this hub to accommodate those products.


The Congdaren PS5 Travel Case uses a layered design specifically for the PS5’s oddly-shaped console. It has various partitions to store your console and a few accessories, such as controllers, cables, and up to five CD cases. You can buy a small disc case if you want to carry more games, but overall, the PS5 travel bag is slick, compact, and convenient since you can use it as a tote bag or a shoulder bag.

OIVO PS5 & PS5 Slim Stand and Station

The PS5 Stand Station acts as a storage unit for accessories, a controller storage station, and a cooling station for your PS5 console. The cooling system is equipped with three cooling fans to support your long gaming hours. It has four built-in charging ports and a dual PS5 charging station to charge two controllers simultaneously. Apart from all the convenient features, it also organizes your whole gaming setup everything will be stored on or around the stand.

PlayStation Media Remote

While most smart TVs have built-in apps for popular streaming services like Netflix or YouTube, the PS5 also supports those applications. With the PlayStation Media Remote, you don’t have to switch from your controller to your TV’s remote controller to switch between applications. You can use the PlayStation Media Remote to navigate through your apps. If your TV is compatible with this device, you can even use the remote to adjust volumes and power settings of your TV.

RESPAWN 900 Gaming Recliner

While most gamers use a gaming chair as their preferred furniture, there’s a gaming recliner that lets you experience comfort on another level while gaming. The Respawn 900 Gaming Recliner provides a plush headrest pillow, a footrest with no open spaces to tangle up your wires, and a comfortable recline up to 135- degrees that can support over 275lbs of weight. It even has a cup holder to hold your drinks.

Glorious Model O Wireless Gaming Mouse

The Glorious Model O Wireless Gaming Mouse might not be the first choice for console gamers, but if you are looking to switch to a keyboard & mouse setup for your gaming needs, the Glorious Model O is the best for its superlight design, 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity, and up to 71 hours of battery life.

FAQ About Console Accessories

How do you check if the accessory is compatible with your console?

Most products have a list of compatibility on the product description page, and they are usually compatible with most major consoles. However, some products don’t list their compatibilities. For example, a PC gaming headset would normally market its features and say if it is wireless or wired. Since a console like a PS5 or Xbox has both wireless and wired connectivity, you can connect that headset to your console, and most of them would work. If you are unsure, you can look for users online who have tested the product or contact the manufacturer’s support.

Where is the best place to buy accessories online?

Amazon should be the best place to buy console accessories online. Since most accessories are made by different manufacturers through licensing, you might not be able to see some of the products on the official store of a specific console such as Sony stores (PlayStation).

Can you use wireless keyboards & mice on consoles?

Most wireless peripherals are compatible with consoles, but a handful of them might have connectivity issues depending on the product. While the PS5 does have Bluetooth built-in, it has little to no native support on most wireless products. They are continuously working on native support for these devices, and there will be more wireless products out there that would be listed as compatible with the PS5. For the Xbox Series X, it doesn’t have Bluetooth support. However, in both cases, you can use a wireless transmitter to connect your wireless device, but you will need to purchase that wireless transmitter separately.
