Here are the best accessories for PlayStation VR

The PlayStation VR (PSVR) is a phenomenal headset. Still, there are always more of the best PS4 accessories and other items you can use to enhance your experience, especially since PS VR2 isn't released for some time yet. That next headset will pack numerous improvements, including controllers utilizing the DualSense haptic feedback. For now, though, if you're looking for the best travel and display cases, we can show you our favorites. Do you want better sound quality or controller options? We know the best options for those, too. We've got your back all the way down to keeping your PSVR safe, clean, and at its peak performance. Here's everything you need to live like a king in virtual reality.

On-the-go

USA Gear PSVR and console travel case

Staff Pick

One of the best parts of virtual reality is sharing it with your loved ones. Make traveling easy with this USA Gear travel case. It has enough room to fit your PSVR headset, PSVR processor, PlayStation 4 console (Original, Slim, or Pro), headphones, and cords for your PSVR and PlayStation DualShock controllers, Move controllers, and games. The case itself is designed like a laptop carrying case, making it incredibly easy and comfortable to travel with.

The best sound

PlayStation Platinum Wireless

These headphones support 7.1 surround sound and are made specifically to fit the VR headset, so you'll never miss a thing. They also have an internal noise-canceling microphone to make sure your friends can always clearly hear what you're saying when you play together. If you prefer a wired setup, these headphones rock a 3.5mm headphone jack, which means you do have the ability to plug them in physically. There is also a cheaper and less premium model, the Gold Wireless if you prefer.

Immersive controls

PSVR Aim Controller

While it offers a much better experience for shooter games, it is only supported with the following games: Arizona Sunshine, Bravo Team, ChromaGun, Dick Wilde, DOOM: VFR, Evasion, Farpoint, Firewall Zero Hour, Rom: Extraction, Special Delivery, The Brookhaven Institute, and Unearthing Mars 2. If you don't have any of these games, don't get the Aim controller, especially with no intention of owning them.

Bells and whistles

Skywin PSVR Charging Display Stand

This vertical stand comes with a slot to hold just about every PlayStation accessory you can think of. There's a slot for your console, two Move controllers, the PSVR box, the PSVR helmet, headphones, and two DualShock controllers. It also has two fans and four USB 3.0 charging ports built-in on the stand.

THRUSTMASTER T.Flight HOTAS 4 (PS4/PC)

$102 at Amazon

The T.Flight has 12 action buttons, one rapid-fire trigger, one multi-directional hat switch, and a dual rudder system. All of these features offer you the best comfort, easy mapping, and immersive gameplay. You can use a HOTAS controller for most flight simulators on the PlayStation VR, and it really enhances the gaming experience.

The basics

AIDEA Microfiber Cleaning Cloth

The time will come when you need to clean your PlayStation VR. When that happens, having a small stock of microfiber cleaning cloths is a solid plan. You can use them to safely dust your headset off and clean the rest of your gear. As a general option, microfiber cloths should be in every home. It isn't just the PSVR you can clean with them; it's all of your tech!

Quick cleaning

Go on the Go Biodegradable Wet Wipes

These all-natural disinfectant wipes do not contain any traces of bleach or alcohol. That makes this option the best for cleaning equipment that has to be used on your face. Not only will it protect your skin and eyes from getting irritated, but the fact that there's no alcohol means you won't run the risk of warping your lenses with any accidental touches.

Better tracking

Simple Deluxe Clamp Light

Do you deal with an awful lot of screen-shaking or poor tracking when playing the PlayStation VR? You either have too much light in the room or too many colors. With this clamp light, you can get a colored LED bulb, turn off all your other lights, and change your entire room to another color to improve your tracking.

$10 at Amazon

The best syncing option

Luxrite LED Green Bulb

After plenty of trial and error, we discovered the PlayStation Camera has the best time tracking your Move controllers and headset against a green background. Because of this, we recommend getting a few green LED bulbs to plug into your clamp lights when you want to improve your tracking!

$10 at Amazon

Begone, light!

NICETOWN Blackout Curtains

$20 at Amazon

Stop letting the glare of the outside world ruin your movie. With these blackout curtains, you can block out that evil sun from interrupting your shows! This package comes with two panels that are 42 inches wide and 63 inches long.

It only gets better from here

There are many great experiences with the PlayStation VR, and all of these accessories heighten that experience. Show off your pride and joy with a phenomenal vertical stand highlighting all of your accessories or jump straight into an immersive game with the best sound quality using PlayStation Platinum. It doesn't matter what you're doing; it matters that you're having fun, and it makes you happy.

It isn't always just about the fun, though. You also want to keep your console safe, clean, and sanitary. That's where the products like the disinfecting wipes come in. Whether you're saving your lenses from the devastation of a scratch by glasses or making sure your snotty nephew doesn't get you sick, cleaning products are endlessly useful (and cheap!).

I bet you're curious about my suggestions of a clamp light and green LED bulb, right? Long story short, your PlayStation VR camera tracks your movements by the lights on your headset and your Move controllers. So the camera will scan your room and choose a color for your Move controllers to display to combat the lights and colors around your room. This is why your Move controllers, some of the best PlayStation VR controllers, light up differently in different rooms!

So, if you turn off all your lights, block out the sun, and turn on a green LED bulb, your PlayStation camera will only have to compete against the green. This prevents it from having to register posters, wall paint, carpet color, etc. The easier it is for your console to process information, the better it will work.

Review: The Teracube 2e is a more sustainable phone that you can afford

It just got easier to be green. If you know me or read my work here at AC, you know that I feel strongly about a few things when it comes to smartphones and consumer tech, and those things are not necessarily what some of my colleagues or others in the tech-sphere care about. You can have your 10x optical zoom cameras, folding phones, and 50W wireless charging devices all day, but I'm more interested in affordable to mid-range devices that last longer than you'd expect and which are at least trying to do environmental and social good. Sounds great, but it seems that it's harder to find this combination of features in a phone than the ultra-premium specced-out devices we typically talk about here on this website. That's why I was excited when I had the chance to write this Teracube 2e review. Teracube is a relatively new smartphone OEM based out of Redmond, WA, and founder Sharad Mittal's stated goal is to change the "disposable nature of the consumer ele

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

Your university's IT admin will need to make an application for access. What you need to know Adobe is temporarily making Creative Cloud free for teachers and students. The offer is aimed at enabling them to continue being productive as they work and study from home. Students cannot individually avail the promo, however, as the application for access needs to be made by a university's IT admin. As universities around the world shut their campuses and organizations ask their employees to work from home, many tech companies are making their products available to educational institutes free for use. Google and Microsoft have both made their large-scale communication and videoconferencing tools free for everyone, and now Adobe is temporarily giving free Creative Cloud access to students and teachers. The subscription, which usually costs $79.49 per month, will give affected students and teachers access to the entire range of Adobe's applications, such as Photoshop
