The Dream PlayStation 4 Setup
So picture this: it's present time at Holiday 2013 and you unwrap a brand new Playstation 4 (or you just played Santa Claus and bought yourself one!) and now you're looking for the ultimate PS4 set-up to spend the upcoming months going through the first amazing games the console has to offer. As a gamer, you want to invest in what makes sense to live the PS4 experience to the fullest: equipment and gaming gear. And when it comes to playing Killzone: Shadow Fall, Diablo III and the new Final Fantasy on the first Sony home console to come out in almost a decade, money shouldn't be an issue right? Well that's right, and we're going to go overboard and beyond here to suggest you the very best PS4 set-up you can get your hands on.
Samsung 85-inch Ultra HD UN85S9000 TV (Price TBA)
By the time the PS4 is released, this baby will have probably hit the market. That’s right: a downright amazing 85-inch Ultra HD TV to play your PS4 games on. Check out the video above and imagine having some video game action going on on that screen. Simply amazing! This TV literally blew people away at the last CES 2013 and you should definitely wait a few months for it to come out.
For the sound system, we recommend the Onkyo HT-S8409 7.1-Channel Network A/V Receiver/Speaker Package. Not only will it create a great living room setup paired with your huge Samsung display, but it will also produce sound that will make your windows shake! Simply take a look at the reviews on its Amazon page to witness its incredible performance and reliability.
The PS Vita was previously only another portable system, but now it has become a total must for PS4 owners. You can’t call your PS4 set-up an ultimate one if you don’t own a PS Vita. With remote play, you will be able to play your PS4 games on the go and that’s a feature you really don’t want to miss. We’ve chosen the brand new Assasin Creed III bundle and the white version so that you can travel in style and never forget that you’re the ultimate PS4 gamer.
Razer Lycosa Keyboard ($79.99)
You weren’t expecting this one weren’t you? Well, the PS4 will have so many great social functions that it would be a shame to strictly type with the on-screen keyboard. Of course, there is no way to guarantee the compatibility of any keyboard for an unreleased console, but it’s safe to say that is will at least be as versatile as the PS3 on that aspect. Most USB plug-and-play keyboards will work. Why not go for the longtime trusted Lycosa and for such a reliable company as Razer. Its comfort is sure to please you and its elegant backlighting theme is just about certain to match the PS4’s blue theme.
This is the pro-gamer’s secret recipe for sound. The Sennheiser PC 350 headphones are the best to come out in recent years and the Astro Mixamp is an absolute must to gain more sound precision in order to hear all your opponents in shooting games for example. Of course, Astro offers its own line of headphones, but gamers have tested other combinations extensively, and nothing comes close to a pair of PC 350 matched with a mixamp. Try it and you will thank ps4playstation4.com later.
Short on space?
Try the XL2420T BenQ monitor as your TV if you’re looking to build your ultimate PS4 setup in a smaller space. BenQ is one of the most recognized brands when it comes to competitive gaming monitors (even if you use one for your console rather than your PC) and has been endorsed by legendary pro gamers like Emil “Heaton” Christensen and Abdisamad 'SpawN' Mohamed. Then we strongly suggest the Razer Ferox for your speakers. These speakers provide sound in every direction, all while not taking more space than water bottles on your desk. This is a quite good option to consider for competitive players who are looking to get a little more concentration in a separate room, rather than blasting out the full experience in their living room.
