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'll be able to 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: Aproca Hard Travel Case
- Digital game storage: Seagate 4TB 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. Still, 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. Aproca's hard travel storage case is made specifically to keep that from happening, as it offers a specially designed case for the DualShock 4, while also protecting it from any bumps or drops. It even has a hand grip for you to keep it on you at all times.
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.
Transporting your console and all of your games can be a hectic thing, especially when it comes to long-distance traveling. Thankfully, plenty of incredible products exist to take the stress off of your mind. 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 and will allow you to have a full gaming experience no matter where you go.
If you're looking to travel more lightly, the BUBM waterproof backpack might be more your speed. Not only does it have more than enough room for your PS4, but you can even keep every wire nice and tidy in its own compartment, which takes a lot of the hassle out of moving the system in the first place.
Of course, your games need to be moved as well. If you're looking for something cheap and secure to move the games in, you might want to check out the BUBM Portable Game Disc Storage Bag. Not only does it fit up to 20 games, but it's designed to easily carry around no matter where you, and even has room for wires or a controller in the upper compartments. No matter where you go with your games, just know that you can keep them safe in a variety of ways.
