Think your PS4 setup still needs a little boost? You're in the right place. Even after perusing most of the Amazon Prime Day 2018 game deals, there's a good chance something may have fallen through the cracks - and that's what this article is for: making sure Amazon is loading up the best possible deals on games and gear into a cardboard box (maybe several cardboard boxes) bound for your residence.
We’re always looking for better ways to play PS4, and aside from having the best PS4 games and a decent 4K TV to play them on… everything else can feel a little unnecessary. Until you’ve actually used them, when they fast become essential. Like renewing your PS Plus subscription to keep all those free PS Plus games you have. Or grabbing a decent gaming headset to make sure that not only can you hear your Fortnite foes with utter clarity, but you can also shout your teammates too, to warn them. Here are the five essential Amazon Prime Day deals that all PS4 owners should at least consider, before the sale expires at midnight, and all this kit gets a hell of a lot more expensive again...
