A Gaming Console

A sneak peek into Santa’s annual wish list shows that gaming consoles are always in demand. These consoles are usually in so high a demand that they have to be pre-ordered before their release date, making them highly priced presents that will surely be appreciated during Christmas. Some examples are

·         Sony Playstation 5

The Playstation 5, which is the successor to the Playstation 4, and was launched in November 2020. The video game console is designed in two versions, the pure Digital Edition, and the 4k Blu-ray drive. The system has a memory of 16GB, an eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU, 825GB of storage space, 5.5GB of performance, and so much more. The fact that it is a newly released product that has been much anticipated makes it a perfect gift for your loved one during the holiday season.

·         Xbox Series X

This is touted as the most powerful and fastest Xbox console up till this time, and it offers four generations of games on the console, with over a hundred games, backward compatibility, custom SSD, quality performance, and integrated software.

Gaming Subscription
Gaming subscription can be for online gaming or mobile gaming, and it is a perfect gift for children and adults alike. There are hundreds of games that can be obtained from sources such as G2A and other such outlets. You should learn more about G2A before considering giving them a try. However, some of the ideas to consider include Xbox Game Pass, Playstation Now, EA /Origin Access, UPlay Plus, Nintendo Switch Online, Apple Arcade, Google Play Pass, etc.

Gaming Screen
Many gamers will tell you that the larger the screen, the better the gaming experience. Not only is a widescreen important for picking up details that might have otherwise been hidden or unnoticed on a smaller screen. Apart from improving your level of accuracy, a large screen will allow all the tools and gaming options to be properly displayed for the gamer to make quick judgments. When buying a gaming screen, however, it is important to pay attention to the quality of the monitor. Plasma, LCD, and LED are some options, rather than those that will have poor pixilation, resolution, and low definition. Therefore, getting a better resolution monitor for your gaming child, friend, spouse or colleague will always be a win.

Peripherals
If the budget is tight, you might want to consider getting peripherals like a mechanical keyboard, mouse, gaming mousepad, headset, and speakers. Many people do not pay attention to these products, but they not only enhance the play of the game but also make it easy to move between interfaces.

A Gaming Chair
The long periods that gamers spend on their chairs as they play games that can span into hours, or even days, makes the gaming chair easily wear out. If you feel like a part of your living room couch is about to cave in from the constant butt-print of the gamers in your life, you might want to consider saving your furniture by investing in a gaming chair.

We cannot possibly chronicle all the products that will make a perfect Christmas gift for gamers this season, but we have highlighted a few for you to consider.
