This year’s E3 conference brought a whole lot of splash in playstation 4 accessories. From headsets to wirelessly charging mice, this year’s expo showed off the latest gadgets that will be a must have for gamers around the world.
Let’s take a quick look at some of the PS4 accessories, and other console accessories that were released at this year’s E3 conference.
LucidSound LS15X Headset Accessory for Xbox One
Designed for the Xbox One, the LucidSound LS15X also works with your PC. The lightweight stylish design is meant to be featherweight so as to leave your head clear from distraction of heavier stereo headsets. Although this LucidSound headset is designed for the XBox One, they released a barrage of new headset accessories for PS4 and more. The LS15X works directly with Xbox One’s wireless technology leaving you only to pair the headset to your console to enjoy high quality sound in a stylish, long lasting design.
Nintendo Switch Accessory – Nyko Portal Docking Kit
The Nintendo switch arrived within the last year to much fanfare. Nintendo has claimed that the Nintendo Switch is even outperforming their expectations. So we expect that many of you have a Nintendo Switch right alongside your PS4 or Xbox One! Nyko continues to roll our cost effective Nintendo and Playstation 4 Accessories. The Nyko Nintendo Switch Dock removes all the excess from the standard dock to have a clean way to snap on your Nintendo Switch to play on your screen or TV. At $44.95 it is one of Nyko’s pricier accessories for the Nintendo Switch. The dock does lack the USB ports of the standard dock but is the simplest docking/charging station we have seen yet for the Nintendo Switch!
Playstation 4 Accessories from Razer – Thresher Wireless headset
Razer released the new Thresher Ultimate Wireless Headset Playstation 4 accessory. These high end wireless stereo headsets boast the highest frequency range of any console gaming headset yet. This range of sound provides you with a rich immersive gaming experience without shaking down the walls. The Razer Thresher Ultimate headset was designed as the perfect accessory for PS4 & XBox, adding to the large list of wireless Playstation 4 accessories. At $250 they are certainly for avid and professional gamers. The design was well thought out from sound quality to comfort sporting faux leather earcups, 50mm sound drivers and specially designed comfort suspension band. The Razer Thresher headset also comes with a neat audio base that doubles as stand!
Xbox One & Playstation 4 Accessories – Seagate Game Drive
Seagate released a Game Drive for PS4 earlier in the year which essentially is an external hard drive capable for dramatically increasing your game play storage. If you are an avid console gamer you know the importance of HDD Playstation 4 accessories. The base PS4 hard drive gets filled pretty darn fast so having the option to expand your storage for PS4 and XBox is almost a must.
Although the Seagate Game Drive for PS4 is pretty much just external storage, the Xbox One Accessory from Seagate is a super large external storage (8TB !) and a pair of high speed USB ports. The huge amount of storage is going to be needed for the super large 4K games Xbox One X will support. The Seagate Game Drive also takes a design cue from the XBox One X with a rectangularly shape highlighted by a slight curve at the front of the unit.
Nintendo Switch Accessories – 8Bito TwinCube Bluetooth Speakers
Retro gaming is making its way back into the mainstream with new consoles from Nintendo and the new Atari being released later this year. The Nintendo Switch takes a turn towards modern design but it’s not without its nostalgia.
The 8Bito TwinCube wireless speakers complement the Nintendo Switch brand colors. Available in red and blue, these speakers are designed to resemble controllers but with bluetooth and AUX connections for better sound with Nintendo Switch in mobile mode. The connections allow you to use the speakers with nearly any compatible device making them a great gift this year for nearly anyone!
Logitech G Powerplay Wireless Mouse Charging System with Lightspeed Technology
The one accessory that PC and Console gamers can agree is wicked cool is the all new Logitech PowerPlay mouse. At this year’s E3 conference Logitech announced the release of G703 and G903 mice. But it is not the mouse itself that tells the whole story.
Both of the new Logitech mice feature Logitech Lightspeed technology, which utilizes one-millisecond report rate and end-to-end signal optimization to ensure the mouse and PC are constantly connected with the strongest signal. During a briefing earlier this year, the company said that the tech would make wireless mice viable for super-sensitive ESports play.
The revolution truly comes in the wireless charging system that Logitech developed exclusively for the Powerplay series of mice. Instead of a wired mouse or rechargeable batteries, you get a wired mouse mat that utilizes inductive charging to ensure the pointer is always poised to point at all the things. Pretty cool gadget for gamers this year from Logitech!
Overall this E3 gaming convention saw a lot of great tech and games coming later this year. These were just a few of the items we wanted to let you know about.
At PlayConn we are getting ready for our first E3 convention next year. But it is exciting to already see that our wireless charging system for PS4, Xbox and Nintendo will be in the good company of some other fantastic wireless accessories. Be sure to come back to our website regularly for the latest new wireless accessories for Playstation, Xbox and Nintendo!
