An extra PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controller
It’s always good to have a second controller, no matter what system you have. With an extra controller you can play multiplayer games with your family and friends. And, when playing by yourself, if your controller’s battery dies on you, then you have an extra one ready to go and can continue playing.
Much of what PlayStation fans love about the DualShock 4 is included with the PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controller but new features such as haptic feedback, offer a whole new level of immersion. With haptic feedback, games can now have a variety of powerful sensations that you actually feel when you play. The share button from the DualShock 4 has been replaced with a “Create” button. It features new and innovative ways to share content with the world.
Looking for a quick conversation with friends online while playing and don’t want to get the headset out? The PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controller comes with a built-in microphone array that will allow you to quickly jump into a conversation without the need of a headset.

However, the hard drive in the PS5 is 825GB and that can quickly fill up. The easiest way to add extra storage to your PlayStation 5 is by using an external USB hard drive.
