  • Keep the game going with these essential PlayStation 3 accessories

    Whether you’re looking to enhance your gameplay, extend the capacity of your downloadable library, or simply add a personalized touch to your console, there are a wealth of accessories available for the PlayStation 3. You’ll never worry about running out of space on your console or battery power for your controller with these gaming essentials.

    PlayStation 3 controllers

    Having an extra controller on hand is a must for just about anyone. With at least two controllers you’ll always be set for that head-to-head matchup with a family member or friend. Families in particular will always want to be sure there are enough controllers to go around to keep everyone happy and part of the action.

    There are a vast number of titles for the PlayStation 3 that even support up to 4-player local multiplayer, including some of the biggest indie and arcade hits of the generation. There’s nothing quite like the shared experience of local co-op multiplayer with a rowdy bunch of gamers.

    Wireless Dual Shock 3 controllers for the PlayStation 3 use an internal rechargeable battery. Since a Dual Shock 3 controller must wait to be charged once the battery is depleted (as opposed to simply replaced with fresh batteries) it’s always a good idea to have a spare, charged controller on hand.

    Rechargeable docking stations will allow you to charge multiple controllers at one time from a single USB port on the PlayStation 3 console. You may also want to consider a longer USB charging cable for your controller that will allow you to comfortably play while the controller is charging.

    PlayStation 3 gaming headsets

    A proper PS3 gaming headset can be all the difference between a good and a great gaming experience. Not only do many gaming headsets offer superior sound quality compared to the average television, but they also allow for in-game chat via the headset mic. In the age of online multiplayer gaming a chat-capable headset is an absolute must-have.

    Headsets can also be indispensable to gamers with shared accommodations, or for parents who want to reduce the noise from their children’s games. Headsets can provide privacy and immersion for the user as well as peace of mind to those around them.

    Internal memory

    The PlayStation 3 console does not support external hard drives for expanding memory and installing games, but the internal hard drive can be upgraded and replaced to increase the console’s internal memory. It is compatible with most 2.5-inch SATA notebook hard disks, including both 5400- and 7200-RPM drives.

    Customization and personalization

    There are a wise selection of skins, cases, and face plates available that allow players to add apersonal touch to their PlayStation 3 console and accessories. These products fit and adhere to consoles and accessories allowing for unique styles and textures.

    PlayStation 3 remotes and cables

    Many owners use there PlayStation 3 console as a DVD/Blu-Ray/streaming device in addition to gaming. If you prefer the standard design of a remote control over the PlayStation 3 controller, you may want to consider the Bluetooth remote accessory when using the PlayStation 3 as a non-gaming entertainment hub.

    Additional cables that may come in handy for the PlayStation 3 include an HDMI cable for video output, as well as USB-to-Mini USB cables, which are used for charging Dual Shock 3 controllers.
