It isn’t just the PlayStation 4s that got smaller, and powerful. Sony also took the opportunity to showcase some new accessories at the PlayStation Press Conference for Asia today.

Here they are:

New DualShock 4 Wireless Controller

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. The current DualShock 4 has a notoriously short battery life, and it is thought that the front light bar is to blame for it. Hopefully this improves the battery life somewhat. The new DualShock 4 wireless controller will be available at a suggested retail price (SRP) of S$69.90 from 17th September 2016.

New PlayStation Camera

It will also include a stand that provides better adjustments of the camera position, and will also fits the top of a TV display bezel. It will be available at for S$79.00 from September 2016.

New Vertical Stand

The vertical stand is specifically designed for the new slimmer PS4 and PS4 Pro 4.  Designed and made with a translucent material, it is supposed to resemble the “shadow” of the system when set vertically. It will be available in two different sizes to fit either the slimmer PS4 or the PS4 Pro. It will be available for S$36.90 from 17th September 2016.

Available this holiday season for S$219, the Wireless Headset-3D Surround Audio, is touted as a high-end gaming headset for the Ps4. Its 7.1 virtual surround sound is powered by Sony Interactive Entertainment’s proprietary 3D audio technology, and will be featured in selected PS4 games. The headset also features multi-position, hidden noise-cancelling microphones for clearer chats, and is also compatible with PS VR and mobile devices via an included 3.5mm audio cable.
