Not technically necessary

A controller can be a faff to use when you just want to watch a movie or TV show. It's very easy to rest it on a table and accidentally hit the shoulder buttons, messing up your viewing by accidentally fast forwarding or otherwise. So, the PS5 media remote is a great accessory if you want something that's built for the sole purpose of browsing through your streaming services. 

With its dedicated buttons for many popular streaming services including Netflix, Disney Plus, YouTube and Spotify, the media remote should prove to be a great addition to any PS5 setup. It also means you won’t be drain your controller battery faster than necessary, either.

If you're unsure about what the PS5 HD Camera accessory does, we've got you covered. It's great if you stream your games, or are someone who just loves to share and broadcast their gameplay.

The HD camera has had a cool, funky design upgrade from the PlayStation 4 Camera and it's main purpose is so you can add yourself to your streams or gameplay clips. It also has an adjustable stand and can be attached to the top of your TV or elsewhere.

One comes in the box

A single DualSense Wireless controller is included with both the PS5 console and the PS5 Digital Edition. But if need be, you can get hold of an extra one for some local multiplayer action, or if you just fancy a spare.

The DualSense controller is a dramatic improvement over the DualShock 4, and features adaptive triggers and haptic feedback that can have a game-changing effect when performing key actions in your favorite titles. Haptic feedback can also create some incredibly realistic sensations in your hands, like the feel of rain fall, for example. 

Whether you love or hate the look of it, the DualSense is a big departure from its predecessors and you can't use the DualShock 4 on PS5 when playing PlayStation 5-specific titles. Since launch, we've also got a range of new color options too, like Midnight Black, which match up with the new PS5 faceplate range.
