2017 Holiday Shopping Guide: PlayStation VR Accessories

The PlayStation VR is heading to its second holiday season. If you are planning to pick up the virtual reality headset for the PlayStation 4, rather for yourself or as a gift to a loved one, there are a few other accessories and complementary products we recommended checking out as well. Below, you can take a look at our buying guide for the best PlayStation VR accessories to look out for on Black Friday or anytime during the 2017 holiday season.

PSVR Requirements

The PlayStation VR headset can’t be operated alone without the PlayStation 4 Camera. So, if you purchase the PSVR without a camera bundled in, you can purchase the PlayStation 4 Camera with this link on Amazon.

Select PS4 VR games also use the PlayStation Move Controllers. The motion sticks were originally created for the PlayStation 3 but are also compatible with the PlayStation 4 as well as PlayStation VR. So, if you are missing one or two PlayStation Moves, then you can purchase the motion controllers via this page.

Although the PS4/PS4 Slim models are perfectly capable of running PlayStation VR games, you can get better looking virtual reality games with the PlayStation Pro. The new hardware, which was released in 2016, offer more graphical power. As a result, PSVR games look and run better on the Pro when compared to the other two models.

The PlayStation 4 Pro also has several other benefits outside of VR. Supported games can run at a higher resolution (as it supports 4K television sets), better frame rate and/or other visual enhancements as well. So, even if you have a PS4 or PS4 Slim, the PlayStation 4 Pro may be worth upgrading if you want to get the most out of the PlayStation VR. If you are interested, you can purchase the PlayStation 4 Pro via this link.

PlayStation VR Aim Controller

Sony released a new official accessory for the PlayStation VR this year in the PlayStation VR Aim Controller. This product allows you to comfortably play virtual reality first-person shooting games. It features advanced motion and light tracking, ergonomically design, force feedback rumble and rechargeable battery.

So far, the PlayStation VR Aim compatible games include Arizona Sunshine, Bravo Team, ChromaGun, Dick Wilde, DOOM: VFR, Farpoint, ROM: Extraction, Special Delivery and The Brookhaven Experiment. Along with other upcoming titles, you should get plenty of use with the game gun accessory.

The PlayStation VR Aim Controller is available as a standalone product as well as being a part of the bundle that also comes with the aforementioned Farpoint. You can find both with the following pages: PSVR Aim Controller and PSVR Aim Controller Farpoint Bundle.

PSVR Charge & Display Station

The PlayStation VR headset is a little bulky. Not to mention that you might also have to deal with the PlayStation Move controllers. Thus, being a PlayStation VR gamer may end up being a bit bothersome if you don’t have space to store and/or charge the virtual reality headset and its accessories.

Fortunately, BD&A has a product, which has been officially licensed by Sony, to conveniently store and recharge the batteries of the PSVR. The PSVR Charge & Display Station will hold and display the virtual reality headset, two PlayStation Move controllers as well as one DualShock 4 controller.

If you are interested, the BD&A PSVR Charge & Display Station is available for purchase with this link.

PlayStation VR Deluxe Carrying Case

The PlayStation VR is impressive tech. If you want to take your virtual reality headset to a loved one’s house to show it off, we recommend getting a carrying case to ensure that you won’t damage the expensive headset during transportation.

The RDS Industries PlayStation VR Headset and Accessories Deluxe Carrying Case, which has been officially licensed by Sony, features a hard outer case to protect the PSVR. A carrying bundle is also included so that you can easily hold the product. Furthermore, there are also compartments to hold the processor unit and AC Adaptor. Last but not least, there are mesh pockets for the PlayStation VR Headset connection cable, HDMI cable and USB cable.

If you are interested, you can buy the RDS Industries PlayStation VR Headset and Accessories Deluxe Carrying Case with this page.

So, if you are getting a PlayStation VR, make sure to keep an eye on the accessories and other complementary products we mentioned above during Black Friday or anytime during the 2017 holiday shopping season so that you can get the most out of the virtual reality headset.
