Inside the console are relatively basic accessories. You will not have to buy a stand to place horizontally or put along the PS5, because the design is quite weird, Sony has to give the stand to avoid damage. But other accessories such as a second controller, PULSE HD wireless headset or camera, you have to buy more outside.
