After the PlayStation meeting press conference, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced new peripherals that will be used across all PS4 hardware including a new Wireless Controller (DUALSHOCK 4), a new PlayStation Camera, a vertical stand specifically designed for the PS4 Slim and the PS4 Pro all will become available in Japan, North America and in Europe starting from September 15, 2016. A new Platinum Wireless Headset was also revealed, set to be released this holiday season.
New Wireless Dualshock 4 Controller for PlayStation 4 (CUH-ZCT2 series)
The new Wireless Controller for PS4 allows the light from the light bar to emit on the touch pad, making a new luminous line in the same color as that of the light bar. This provides gamers with visual information, such as which character they control or health status, at a glance. Furthermore, the new DUALSHOCK 4 supports USB communication in addition to the currently available Bluethooth communication, allowing users to have control also via cable. The new controller will be available at a MSRP of 5,980 yen, $59 USD, €59 and £54.
New PlayStation Camera (CUH-ZEY2 series)
The redesigned PlayStation Camera keeps all the features available on the current model, including PS VR support but has a new compact cylindrical design. PS Camera includes a stand allowing users to easily adjust the angle of the PS Camera and set it up in their preferred location, such as on top of their TV or entertainment center. The new PS Camera will be available at a MSRP of 5,980 yen, $59 USD, €59 and £54.
Vertical Stand (CUH-ZST2 series)
The vertical stand is specifically designed for the new slimmer PS4 and PS4 Pro. The stand was made with translucent material to resemble the “shadow” of the system when set vertically. Two different attachments are bundled so users can mount either the slimmer PS4 or PS4 Pro with ease. The new vertical stand will be available at a MSRP of 2,280 yen, $24 USD, €19 and £16.
Platinum Wireless Headset
The Platinum Wireless Headset, which will be available at a MSRP of 18,000 yen, $159 USD, €179 and £129, is a high-end gaming headset. The headset boasts premium construction and materials for extra comfort, as well as enhanced highly positional 7.1 virtual surround sound powered by SIE’s proprietary 3D audio technology. Select PS4 games supporting 3D audio for the headset will deliver surround sound from all directions, including above and below you, for more immersive experiences. The new premium headset also features multi-position, hidden noise-cancelling microphones for clearer chat and is also compatible with PS VR and mobile devices using an included 3.5mm audio cable.
