The console generation is definitely starting to take solid ground right now, with the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 continuing what has been a gradual growth by their predecessors.

In this article, we are not going to raise such an argument(why PS3 is still cool), but we are going to look at the best gaming equipment ps3 owners should have.
One place where you might get spoilt for choice is definitely the number of accessories for you to complete your console, and because Sony keeps on releasing accessories even for their old consoles, we came up with this awesome list.
