ps4 featured 1

With the PS4 just a few short months away from being released to the public just about everything the console can do has been discussed and compared. One thing not a lot of people are talking about though are accessories.

While accessories may not be required to have fun with your new PS4 they will make your life a little easier and in some cases bring a whole new option to the table for what you can do with your next-gen system. So here is a list of 5 accessories you’re going to want to have to take your system to the next level when you finally get your hands on it.

Nyko’s Next Generation Charge Base

Nyko is a leader in 3rd Party accessories so it should be no surprise that Nyko will be launching some accessories for the PS4. Nyko’s next generation charging base will allow you to rapidly charge 2 DualShock 4 controllers simultaneously.

It also features Nyko’s patented USB charging dongle system which allows for easy connection to the DualShock 4. Luckily the PS4 allows controllers to charge even while the system is off so you can charge while you sleep.

You are going to want this because when you get that shiny new PS4 you know you wont want to stop playing for even 5 minutes to recharge those controllers.

      • Magilla187

        August 1, 2013 at 5:57 pm

          my biggest concern with the clips is the added weight. i sat my iphone on my DS3 earlier and it gave it alot more weight. i dont think ill like the clips much while i play shooter’s.

      yeah the clip looks interesting!

      Here is one people tend to forget: Grip-iT analog stick covers. Considering how easy the rubber wears off, those things are a life saver for your ps4 controller! Aussie gamers can buy them from gripitaustralia(dot)com(dot)au.

    The Playstation Camera is 720P and features a 4 channel microphone array for facial recognition

    They got to be some mighty powerful mics to recognize faces. :)

    BTW it’s PlayStation not Playstation.

      Darth Diggler your a loser, I saw you trolling the xbox one Kinect forums. Explaining how futile and useless cameras are for gaming. Yet I find you praising the PS eye comes. Hahahaha Sony Troll, if Sony don’t pay you for this then someone needs a life lol

      • TheRoosh

        August 10, 2013 at 10:09 pm

        It’s “you’re a loser”. It’s “if Sony doesn’t pay you …” Feel free to look up”irony” on Google.

    • TheRoosh

      August 10, 2013 at 10:13 pm

      The article clearly acknowledged it wasn’t … but was still a good companion piece to have.

      • benbenkr

        August 11, 2013 at 12:12 am

        Then why call this article 5… F.I.V.E vital accessories for the PS4? Why not just call it 4?

    Pulse headset for $150 is a certified ripoff. Way better headsets at that price range

    • jamesT

      August 9, 2013 at 1:01 pm

      hey Bob… could you name a few? interested in picking up a set, so if you have any recommendations that would be great.

      • TheRoosh

        August 10, 2013 at 10:12 pm

        I assure you, the Pulse is a superb product. Worth every penny. However, I’m sure there are many competitive products out there. Turtle Beach seems to be a popular model. Logitech is another option. However, I have not seen any headsets with all the features the Pulse has in one package.

        • Gman

          November 7, 2013 at 2:13 am

          Just a point of reference with the Turtle Beach. To an extent, they are not fully compatible right now with the PS4. There is a list here of the limitations: http://www.ps4accessories.com/2013/11/turtle-beach-headsets-ps4-compatibility/

          The fact is the PS4 needs the second firmware update before headset legacy support happens. This is important to remember. Nobody knows when that 2nd update is happening.

          • TheRoosh

            April 5, 2014 at 6:23 am

            Thank you GMan … good to know before I consider buying the PS4.

    So could you use the vita to play your ps4 games over wifi if you are like 3k miles away from your ps4?

    • xBraiNShOcK

      August 4, 2013 at 6:52 pm

      If it’s under the same wifi, yes.

    • tegrof

      August 4, 2013 at 11:31 pm

      Yes. You don’t need to be on the same WiFi. As long as your ps4
      is connected to a network with internet and your vita is on a network with internet you are good.

      • Captain Nutbanger

        June 15, 2014 at 10:18 am

        OR just hack away a satellite and play with your vita even in antarctica.

    the pulse headset is defective. dont buy it.

    • TheRoosh

      August 10, 2013 at 10:09 pm

      Nonsense. I own one. It is utterly perfect.

  7. TheRoosh

    August 10, 2013 at 10:07 pm

    I have the Pulse headset already for my PS3. Great news that it will be PS4 compatible. I LOVE that headset!

    Blizzard Reveals iPad-version Hearthstone in Development

    Though several months have passed, we are still not really over the shock that an iPad game is in development by Blizzard. It doesn’t help that Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft looks so rad, either.

    Anyway, the reason why we’re bringing this up today is because Blizzard has posted a new dev blog about the free-to-play CCG, confirming that it’s basically feature complete and might go into beta within the next few weeks. This pertains to the PC version, mind, but progress on that build can only mean good things for the iPad version.

      December 26, 2014 at 2:41 pm

      the ps camera is in 1080p

    i don’t think that smart clip will be right or work for every phone I’m skeptical about that one because of their mind set of what types of phones will be used I mean i don’t feel my Lg Optimus G pro will sit very well on the control with out forcing the control to lean one way or the other giving it an off set balance BUT i could be wrong. Hopefully i am because it be cool ! Also I definitely wanna see what they do with the ps4 eye camera so i will buy that in hopes they do take advantage of its technology plus i have a large room so ill be able to use this with a good amount of space. headphones I’m going to wait and see what else they come out with this year or next. As for the vita i’m not to happy on some of the stuff the did with that with over priced memory cards and mediocre software. hopefully i can do a trade of some sort with someone to get it with out having to pay so much cash for it.

    You should mention that the
    Sony Pulse Elite is known to crack above the metal bits after about 6 months of use, if you check amazon many people had that problem.
