The PS5’s design has been contentious since its release, with a lot of people not loving the black and white color scheme or the shape of the outer shell. There’s not much you can do with the overall shape other than slim it down a bit, but there are faceplates on sale for Prime Day that mix up the colors and even add some vents for more effective cooling. And if you’re ever worried about how protective they are, there are even shockproof, anti-scratch covers to protect the console.

The PS5 is a chunky beast that doesn’t always fit in with your entertainment stand. That’s where a wall mount comes in. You can hide it away behind your television setup or mount it next to your TV on the wall. Whatever works best for you. Regardless, getting a wall mount for your PS5 is a simple and affordable way to improve your gaming setup. The benefit one the ones listed above is that they also have room for controllers and headsets, too.

Looking to future-proof your hardware? You’ll want to grab a great HDMI 2.1 cable. These cables support higher resolutions, more bandwidth (up to 48Gbps), faster refresh rates like 120Hz and 144Hz, and dynamic HDR, meaning you’ll get the most out of the games you play on PS5 (though the console does come with its own HDMI 2.1 cable in the box). If you want an extra on hand for whatever reason, HDMI 2.0 is still able to deliver 4K, and you’re sure to find one in whichever length you need.
