Ultimate setup: Grand Theft Auto Online
Grand Theft Auto Online launches today – and if you want to rule the mean streets of Los Santos, you'll need to tool up.
We've picked out the best kit to build your criminal empire, from cans to controllers…
Sennheiser X320 (£55)
Turtle Beach Ear Force XP510
Yes, the Sennheiser X320 may be a wired headset – but it delivers excellent bass-boosted sound quality, a noice-cancelling mic and controls for in-game and voice channels. And best of all, you can get it cheap – shop around and you can pick them up for absurdly low prices (£30 from Amazon, anyone?). They're designed for Xbox 360 owners; if you're gaming on a PS3, check out the U320s.
If you simply must cut the cord, the Turtle Beach Ear Force XP510 (£250 from game.co.uk) headset packs dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, plus an array of audio preset options to give you the edge over your enemies. You also get dynamic chat boost, to ensure that your crew mates can hear you over the sound of gunfire and screaming.
X-Dream Rocker Ultra Wireless Gaming Chair (£300)
