PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 Magma Red controller (£50)

The PS4 controller is easily the best one Sony's ever put out, with all its previously niggles long forgotten and you'll definitely want another one for playing with your mates. They can have the standard black one while you take this fetching red one to assert your dominance.

PlayStation 4 Camera (£45)

Unlike the Xbox One's Kinect which is included with the console, PS4 owners will have to get the PS4 camera if they want to get in on the voice and motion-tracking action. From facial recognition to voice chat and 3D motion controls, the PlayStation 4 camera will unlock the PS4's full potential.

The Vita is now more powerful than ever, thanks to its ability to accept PS4 game streams. That means you can play PS4 games wherever you've got an internet connection, letting you harness all that lovely next-gen power in your pocket.
