Redesigned Controller, Headset, And Camera Arriving Alongside New PS4 Consoles

Alongside new PS4 consoles, Sony is giving some of the console's accessories redesigns.

The biggest, and coincidentally physically smallest, redesign, is coming to the PlayStation 4 controller. Light can now be emitted from the front of the controller and can be used for gameplay purposes, like displaying a health bar, for example. You can also connect the controller to the system directly with a USB cable. Previously, the USB cable only provided power while the controller continued to use a wireless connection.

The camera has a more rounded look to it now, but it is functionally the same. The Platinum Wireless Headset is made of high-end materials and features 7.1 virtual surround sound powered by Sony's 3D audio technology.

A vertical stand will also be available for the new PS4 redesigns. All of these items will be available on September 15, with the headset coming this holiday.
