Sony’s PlayStation VR headset is set to launch next month, and third-party hardware manufacturers have already started rolling out a series of accessories that will help you keep your console virtual reality setup safe and organized.

Road to VR summarizes the PlayStation VR’s pre-release accessory lineup, noting that rival virtual reality platforms like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive give users far fewer options when it comes to hardware organization and transport.

PlayStation VR early adopters who wish to maintain a tidy playspace will want to invest in one of two organizer stands premiering alongside Sony’s headset next month. The PowerA Charge and Display Stand, currently available for pre-order via Amazon and other retailers, features a stand for the PlayStation VR headset and charge cradles for one DualShock 4 controller and two PlayStation Move accessories.

Manufacturer Collective Minds, meanwhile, offers its own solution for PlayStation VR storage and charging with the PSVR Showcase Rapid AC PS4 VR Charge & Display Stand. Collective Minds’ accessory can charge two DualShock 4 controllers and two PlayStation Move wands, and is available for pre-order at $35, compared to the $50 asking price for PowerA’s competing stand.

Players wanting to take their virtual reality hardware on the road may want to check out one of several travel accessories debuting in the months ahead, including RDS Industries’ PlayStation VR Headset and Accessories Deluxe Carrying Case. Priced at $60 and due to launch on October 31, the case protects PlayStation VR headsets and cables from damage with a hardshell casing, and features a handle for maximum portability.

PowerA has its own travel solution in mind with its Storage Case for PSVR. Available for pre-order at $40, PowerA’s Storage Case is slimmer and sleeker than RDS’ Deluxe Carrying Case, and features similar storage capacity along with a handle for transport.

All announced PlayStation VR accessories are slated for release on October 31. The PlayStation VR headset and a selection of launch titles will debut at retail on October 13.
