Sony’s PlayStation 5 launches on Thursday, November 12th. Whether you secured one ahead of launch day or plan to buy one during the holiday season, you might want to consider picking up additional accessories to ensure you get the most out of your brand new console.
First, there’s the controller. Every new PS5 includes one DualSense controller. Unlike the DualShock controllers, the DualSense has a two-color scheme and a more ergonomic design. The controller also features adaptive triggers, a built-in microphone, and haptic feedback, with some games taking advantage of the controller’s features to provide more immersion.
In addition to working with the PS5, the DualSense can connect to Android devices wirelessly. The controller will also connect wirelessly to a PC if your computer supports Bluetooth. If not, you can connect the DualSense to a PC using a USB cable.
The controller is $70, which is $10 more than the DualShock 4. The DualSense is a good successor to the PS4’s controller, given all the improvements that come with it. If you already owned a PS4 or own a DualShock 4, you can still use the controller on the PS5, but it will only work while playing PS4 games.
If you are interested in using your PS5 to live-stream video games or broadcast your gameplay with friends, you’ll want to pick up the PS5 HD Camera, which is $60. It includes dual 1080p lenses and is a successor to the PS4 camera. The camera also allows you to remove the background of your camera’s feed and replace it with something else.
Speaking of streaming, let’s quickly talk about games. Sony will have a good chunk of games playable at launch, including some highly anticipated titles, which we will list below. If you are curious to know the full list of games available on the console at launch, we have compiled an extensive list of games coming to Sony’s next-gen console at launch and other games coming out within the next two years. But here are a few PlayStation exclusives coming to the console at launch:
Sony will also debut the PlayStation Plus Collection, a digital library of some of the most popular games released during the PS4’s lifespan. But you will need to have an active PlayStation Plus subscription to access the service. You can grab a one-year subscription for $29 at Eneba or $30 at CDKeys right now.
Shifting back to accessories, the PS5 also has its own media remote. The PS5 can double as a device to stream movies and videos, or if you buy the PS5 with a disc drive, you can watch Blu-ray discs. The PS5 will have a ton of streaming apps available at launch, including Apple TV Plus, Crunchyroll, and Hulu, so if you plan to watch movies and shows on your device, the PS5 media remote would be a smart thing to buy.
With the console’s SSD space limited and no signs of SSD expansion support coming in the near future, using an external hard drive as a way to store older PS4 games is not a bad idea. Just note that you won’t be able to use it to play next-gen PS5 titles.

iPhone 13 leak reveals bad news for Samsung Galaxy S21 – Tom's Guide
While most people are only getting their hands on the iPhone 12, the rumor mill has turned its attention to the iPhone 13. And it sounds like Apple’s going to cast a large shadow over other phones slated to come out in 2021.
It’s already assumed that next year’s iPhone is going to add a display with a 120Hz refresh rate, matching the feature that Samsung added to this year’s Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 families. But a new rumor claims that the iPhone 13 could add this faster-refreshing dynamic display while also undercutting iPhone 12 prices.
The new rumor comes from leaker Jon Prosser, speaking on a new episode of Front Page Tech, Chinese manufacturer BOE apparently continues failing to meet Apple’s stringent expectations for providing displays that are up to the standard Apple requires. Prosser indicated that if BOE couldn’t produce the LTPO OLED display as Apple had requested, then Samsung and LG Display would have to take over to ensure the iPhone 13’s displays were up to snuff, just like what happened with the iPhone 12’s OLED panels.
Samsung and LG Display would indeed be capable of serving up the tasty 120Hz buyers have been clamoring for, though it would mean that Apple might have to pay more in manufacturing fees than it would with BOE. But Prosser suggested that this crisis could be avoided. Manufacturer BOE could reapply for another quality test in a bid to regain its position as the supplier of choice for iPhone 13. Should it meet Apple’s demands and quality expectations, it’s possible that the iPhone 13 could become cheaper overall, as there would be no need to rely on Samsung and LG Display at that point.
It would certainly be a boon for buyers if BOE could produce the same LTPO OLED screens capable of 120Hz for Apple, especially if that allowed the phone make to pass any savings on to customers. It would also put pressure on Samsung, which releases its first big flagship phone of the year, the Galaxy S21, early on. In fact, Samsung is reportedly pushing up the S21’s launch to take advantage of the iPhone 12’s delayed debut.
It’s early on in the iPhone 13 development cycle, meaning we won’t know for a while if the new iPhone will get the faster refreshing display or what impact that could have on pricing. But those are just two more things to speculate on about the iPhone 13, which is expected to come in the same four model sizes as the iPhone 12.
Samsung's Galaxy A12 Offers Quad Camera And Massive Battery On The Cheap – Mashable India
If you’ve been waiting for a Samsung phone that covers the basics at a price that won’t make you cry, the new Galaxy A12 might fit the bill.
The phone has a 6.5-inch, HD+ display with a V-shaped notch in the middle, a quad 48/5/2/2-megapixel camera, and an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
It also features a 5,000mAh battery. Last year’s Galaxy A11 only had a triple rear camera and a 4,000mAh battery, so this is a pretty big upgrade.
The phone has an octa-core chip (Samsung doesn’t say which one), and 3/4/6GB of RAM, and 32/64/128GB of storage, depending on the configuration you choose.
Finally, there’s a fingerprint scanner on the side, and a microSD card slot. The Galaxy A12 will be available in black, white, blue, and red.
Those specs are decent, but the killer feature here is the price, which is low for a Samsung Galaxy device: 179 EUR ($212) for the 64GB variant, and 199 EUR ($236) for the version with 128GB of storage. No word on pricing for the 32GB variant, though. The phone will launch in Europe in January 2021.
If that’s too pricey for you, Samsung launched an even cheaper device, albeit with far weaker specs. The Samsung Galaxy A02s has a similar 6.5-inch HD+ display with a V-shaped notch and an octa-core processor. It also has a triple 13/2/2-megapixel camera, a 5-megapixel selfie camera, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 5,000mAh battery. There’s no fingerprint sensor on this one, but it does have a microSD card.
The Samsung Galaxy A02s is coming in February 2021, in black and white only, with a price tag of 150 EUR ($179).
