While there are a ton of peripherals and accessories for consoles and PC, not all of them are what everyone might consider affordable. In fact, most players go for budget brands, given that they tend to have the most basic of functionalities that one expects to find with a peripheral, but without the sometimes-hefty price tag that goes along with it.

For smart buyers who often want to make the most of what they’re paying for, it’s beneficial to look past some of the better-known brands. The past few years have seen the rise of Amazon’s very own offerings for anything and everything under the sun – including, of course, your peripherals and various accessories for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC and all things related to gaming.

If you’re looking to get a real budget build going, and want to spend less on things like controllers, headsets, and other gaming accessories for your PlayStation 4, then it may be worth checking out these amazing AmazonBasics peripherals for the console.

AmazonBasics Controller Charging Station for PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 Controllers

The first order of business is to always get your controllers sorted. AmazonBasics may lack some cheaper alternatives to the native DualShock 4, but you’ll find that the brand has some very good offerings in the accessories department. This AmazonBasics charging station, for instance, runs for a much lower price while still offering good functionality, and it’s not hard to see exactly why that is when you get down to the nitty gritty of the specs.

The AmazonBasics Controller Charging Station lets you charge up to two DualShock 4 controllers at once, making it perfect if you’re planning on taking a break from playing your favorite games to do something else. The space-saving design is pretty good as well, and you’ll find that it barely takes up room next to your PlayStation 4 console. The station will take about 2.5 to 3 hours to fully charge your controllers, and it comes with a 4ft cable for ample options when it comes to placement. It also comes with a very neat LED indicator that turns red when the controllers are charging and green once they’re fully charged.

AmazonBasics Vertical Stand for Sony PS4

It may not be as essential to other players, but for some who really value their PlayStation 4’s performance nothing beats the peace of mind that comes with having a vertical stand. There are a ton of options out there, all coming in various shapes and sizes, but if you’re looking for the most basic – and probably the most inexpensive – option, then the one from AmazonBasics can appeal to your senses. It has a minimal area of 13x1x3 inches, which should allow you to place your console in almost every vertical nook and cranny to save precious space.

A vertical stand will not only save you room in your entertainment system, but also keeps the PlayStation 4 nice and cool with longer gaming sessions. Keeping the console upright allows for better airflow, and better airflow equals better thermals which translates to better performance overall. Despite being inexpensive, this vertical stand comes with a custom interlocking mechanism that secures your PlayStation 4 neatly in place, while four non-slip feet make sure that the whole set-up doesn’t go anywhere.

AmazonBasics PlayStation 4 Controller Charging Cable

Sometimes, you want your playtime to be as uninhibited as possible, even with modern constraints like drained batteries for your wireless controllers. For those instances, you might want to have a cheap, yet reliable charging cable. AmazonBasics has you covered with these particularly thick charging cables. This pack also comes in a set of two, which means that you can still keep playing with a friend while those controllers gain back that lost juice. This is also a good alternative to the charging station, especially if you’re the kind of player who games faster than his controllers can charge up.

This controller charging cable comes in a PlayStation-themed blue and black color scheme. The wires themselves are six feet long, which should be enough for you to sit back on a couch and game while the controllers are still charging. Compared to using a charging station, this charging cable just needs a total of 1.5 to 2 hours to charge your DualShock 4 controller from the console’s USB port. You can also hook this up to any power source or a device that provides one.

Gaming wouldn’t be complete without a decent sounding pair of headphones, and for this AmazonBasics also has options available for you. This Mono chat headset design is slowly gaining in popularity for competitive couch gaming, as the design allows you to effectively communicate with your team of friends while still hearing the master volume through the TV itself. It’s good to have for starters if you want to experience how this holds up in comparison to other gaming headsets, and you can do so for a fraction of the price.

The gaming chat headset is also officially licensed for the PlayStation 4, meaning that it’s as simple as plugging it in and seeing it work immediately. The lightweight frame and comfortable design are sure to please anyone who values comfort in their headsets, while the single padded earcup allows you to hear your team loud and clear while still being aware of the game’s audio booming from the screen. The speaker itself is powered by a 30mm driver, which is certainly enough for these purposes, while an in-line volume and mute control sits comfortably on the wire for your convenience.

AmazonBasics Charging Station and Display Stand for PlayStation VR

If you want something for your PlayStation VR headset, surprisingly enough AmazonBasics has you covered for this as well. You can get a charging station and display stand for your PSVR headset, as well as space to dock and charge your pair of PlayStation Move motion controllers, with some more room to spare for a single DualShock 4 controller. If you’re primarily playing single-player games with a lot of PSVR in between, then this is probably the best choice to get, and the price tag is amazingly decent for something that usually costs you a lot.

The charging station is compatible with all the released models of the PlayStation VR, and acts as a display stand for your VR kit as well when not in use. The station can charge the PlayStation Move controllers in about five hours, while the DualShock 4 can reach full in about three to four. Like the other charging station on this list, it has LED indicators for everything that needs charging, and is powered by an included AC adapter.
