Between Monster Hunter: World devouring everybody’s free time on the Playstation 4 and Xbox One and cult classic Bayonetta 2 gracing the Nintendo Switch in February, being a gamer has reached a whole new level of fun in 2018.
But depending on what system you own, there are always great accessories you can use to make the experience even better.
Here are some cool game accessories, broken down by console:
If you’re the type of gamer who leaves their games lying around their room, maybe stop that, ok? This all-in-one PS4 stand includes two built-in fans that can cool down your system, three USB ports, two controller charge hubs, and most importantly, a handy shelf that can hold 14 games. Word to the wise though: It won’t fit a PS4 Pro.
People who love playing games with their friends will probably have a dying controller on their hands eventually, but you shouldn’t have to worry about the PS4 running out of ports for you to charge. This charging dock lets you charge two controllers at once, with full charges within six hours.
The PS4 controller isn’t exactly the easiest thing to navigate when you’re watching a movie. This remote can pair with your system and is a much more straightforward layout to help you binge Netflix. It even has the same buttons as a PS4 controller, so you could try to play Monster Hunter: World with it. Probably won’t end well, though.
Sending messages on any console is a pain in the ass when you’re scrolling across an entire keyboard for one letter at a time. This keyboard add-on makes typing out messages or searching for something way easier. Just please don’t use it to send hate messages to the player who just beat you in Dragonball FighterZ.
If you’re playing on the way to work, you’re going to want to protect your Switch. This shell provides shock resistance in case you drop it, plus has a nice grip.
Of course, you probably want protection for your entire Switch set-up. This travel case can hold your system and up to 14 game cards so you’ll have your entire Switch arsenal is at your disposal.
Why should your Joy-Cons wait to charge on the Switch dock? This charging dock can hold four at once so they can all stay powered up for your next Mario Kart race.
Using one tiny Joy-Con on its own can be a pain. Transform it with this Joy-Con handle case that gives you that familiar grip all gamers know and love.
Don’t let limited storage space stop you from playing as much as you like. This hard drive enclosure adds up to 2 terabytes of storage to expand your save space and increase your console speed.
Don’t let your controller slip out of your sweaty palms during a game. Encase it in this silicone skin to keep it secure so you can keep sucking at Cuphead.
No need to fight over the TV when you want to play a game. Slap this onto your Xbox One and give it its own screen. It also folds down like a laptop.
Serious gamers take care of their gear. When toting your Xbox Elite Controllers around, zip them into this shell to keep them safe.
