Sony’s console life cycle is continuing to thrive with the introduction of the next-gen PlayStation 4. This doesn’t mean that Sony has completely abandoned its last console, the excellent PlayStation 3. Several gamers have moved on to the next-gen of gaming, but there’s still a large amount of gamers who still cling to their PS3s.
A ton of great headsets, controllers, capture devices etc. have hit the PS3 accessories market. We’ve compiled a list of the ones that are high quality and worth spending a few gamers bucks on. If you truly appreciate your well-worn or brand-new PS3, then you need to cop one or all of these awesome console add-ons.
These are the 10 best accessory add-ons that any dedicated PS3 owner should immediately adopt.
10. RDS Industries PS3 Black System Backpack
If you’re one of those gamers who’s always on the move with your trusted PS3, then you’re going to have to invest in a trusty backpack. RDS Industries has a pretty sturdy black backpack that features adjustable padded straps for comfort, plus it’s able to package every model of the PS3 released thus far. Your controllers will fit into this great backpack just fine, too.
9. Logitech Cordless Precision Controller
Sony’s DualShock 3 controllers are incredibly trustworthy PS3 devices that warrant their 1st-party affiliation. But if you’re dead set on spending some gamer cash on a 3rd-party configured controller, you can’t go wrong with Logitech PlayStation 3 Cordless Precision Controller. It’s physical build takes some time to get used to, but it performs just as well as its controller competitors.
