Sony just announced the final details for the PS5 and it looks like an absolute beast (sleek, powerful, loads of great titles), but don't forget about the accessories, including the very handy PS5 Media Remote. Ideal for when you're not swinging from rooftops or whatever else. It's available for pre-order now and sets you back $29.99 / £24.99.

Looking for the final piece of the PS5 puzzle? Got a spare DualSense pre-order already? Sony's PS5 Media Remote is the perfect thing, letting you control content from the comfort of your seat. This remote is a very useful tool for when you can't be bothered to move off the sofa, letting you start up the PS5, browse content, play / pause, adjust the volume, and everything else you'd expect. It's not the craziest gadget out there, it's just a useful thing to have. It also has dedicated buttons for launching Netflix, YouTube, Spotify, and Disney Plus.

It's a good companion piece to the PS5, which comes in a very elegant white color-scheme and is rammed with incredibly high-end internals that will make mincemeat of basically any game, pushing out video at 8K if you have the TV to support that. It's the ultimate console and cements Sony's position as the leader of the pack.
