If you’ve been lucky (and patient) enough to snag a Sony PlayStation 5 console during a PS5 restock, then congrats on your luck (and patience). But we’ve got a question for you: What are you doing for an encore? 

Your cool, new gaming system needs some cool, new accessories: maybe an extra PS5 wireless controller (or two!), maybe a PS5 wireless headset, perhaps even – why not? – a Gran Turismo 7-worthy racing wheel

Sure, the PS5 console package comes complete with one wireless PS5 DualSense controller, but one controller is never enough. Buy an extra (or two!) for in-person, multiplayer action. Or, keep an extra (or two!) handy for when the original is broken following a display of old-fashioned gaming rage.

While white is the standard color for the PS5 console – and the PS5 controller – Sony offers the DualSense in a variety of big, bold colors, including red (pictured), purple and black. On Amazon, prices vary. At last look, the pink and blue models (like the standard white) ran a few dollars cheaper than the red, purple and black ones.

Logitech G923 racing wheel and pedals

Released last year, the PS5-compatible Logitech G923 racing wheel-style controller is an upgrade over the reliable PS5-compatible Logitech G29. “I love the refinements over the old wheel,” raves one five-star Amazon review (from a verified G923 customer, natch). “From the outside it looks very similar… but it has been improved internally.” The review goes onto note that the wheel “will hold up to abuse” – or, presumably, all the twists and turns of the brand-new Gran Turismo 7. The G923 racing wheel comes complete with a set of pedals.
