Best Travel Accessories for PlayStation 4 Android Central 2020
Traditionally you play your game console at home unless it's a Nintendo Switch that's built for easy portability. However, it's not a totally ridiculous idea that you might want to carry your PlayStation 4 around with you, particularly if you're traveling on a lengthy trip. It's not the most convenient thing you'll ever do, but with the right accessories, you can certainly travel (fairly) light and have a great experience on the road.
- All-in-one: GAEMS Vanguard
- Simple and effective: Hori Universal HD portable monitor
- Gaming on your back: BUBM Waterproof backpack
- For your audio needs: Sony PlayStation Gold wireless headset
- Small comforts: RDS Controller Case
- Digital game storage: Seagate 2TB Portable Hard Drive
- Physical game storage: BUBM Portable Game Disc Storage Bag
This big beastly thing is an all-in-one travel solution for your PS4. It combines a durable, protective case with an HD monitor, so you can literally play anywhere you have power. Inside there is LED lighting, which is super important, along with a custom fit foam base and accessory bags.
In some markets, this monitor comes with an official Sony PS4 license, but it's also sold without the logo on the back and is otherwise the same monitor. It contains features that make it better for PS4 support — the biggest of which is its HDMI inputs. It also has stereo speakers, a headphone jack, and a really nice carry case to keep it safe. It only has 720p resolution, but at 15.6 inches, that's not the end of the world.
If the Vanguard isn't for you, but you still need a great way to carry your console and accessories around, this great backpack from BUBM is worth consideration. Not only does it hold your PlayStation 4 console and all of the accessories you need, but it's waterproof to keep everything safe.
This isn't necessarily the best headset for the PS4, but for gamers on the go, it's a great buy. Not only is it an official Sony product with a companion app to manage it on the console, but it's also wireless, sounds great, and importantly, folds away. The lack of cables and the fact that it folds up and can be stashed away in the included bag makes it perfect for travel.
No matter how good your bag is, your controller could easily get damaged during travel, especially the sticks. This case has a thick foam interior with a cutout perfectly designed to hug your DualShock 4. The hard outer shell will protect against knocks, and there's a useful interior pouch to keep your all-important charging cable.
At home, you may well have a large, powered hard drive with mass amounts of storage for your PS4 games. That's not going to work very well on the road since it's probably pretty big and needs a separate power source. A portable USB drive, though, won't be such a hassle. This one hooks up over a single USB cable, requires no external power, and will slip inside even a small pocket inside your bag.
If you have a hefty collection and you want to move it around, this is a pretty good investment. You can toss in all your favorite game discs with their cases. There's enough room inside to fit 20 games, and this particular bag is made out of water-resistant materials.
As you can see here, just because you're on the road doesn't mean you have to leave your PlayStation 4 behind. These accessories will let you transport your PS4 with ease, so be sure to grab some before your next trip! If you have the money to spare, the GAEMS Vanguard is a quality product used by many professional gamers.
Personally, I like to keep my costs lower, so the BUBM waterproof backpack is more my speed. I like that it has many pockets for all the little accessories that come with making your PS4 mobile, including cables and dongles and all sorts of stuff.
