Perhaps you want to stream to Twitch, or better communicate with your friends during heated Call of Duty: Warzone matches? Or maybe you just need an extra controller or two for local multiplayer parties? No matter what you’re looking for, here are our picks for the best PS5 accessories that will make your experience with Sony’s console even better.

Need some extra thumbstick grip on your DualSense controller? KontrolFreek’s performance thumbsticks may be exactly what you’re looking for.

PS5 Media Remote ($29.99; bestbuy.com)
Sometimes you don’t want to fumble with a large, clunky controller when you’re watching Netflix on your PS5. That’s where Sony’s Media Remote comes in. This sleek and convenient remote packs all of the essential navigation and playback controls you need for watching your favorite movies and shows, and even features dedicated Disney+, Netflix, Spotify and YouTube buttons for getting right to some of the console’s most popular apps.
WD_BLACK 500GB SN850 NVMe Internal Gaming SSD Solid-State Drive With Heatsink ($129.99, originally $199.99; amazon.com)
There are plenty of options available for PS5 owners who want an external hard drive solution, as the included storage is only 825GB. As games nearly reach an average of 100GB per game, additional storage may be more than a necessity. The problem with external hard drives are that they can only be used for storing and playing PS4 games. To run PS5 games from storage, one needs a compatible SSD.
