Gifts for Gamers
The console gaming industry is larger than ever, with an estimated total of nearly 200 million units sold this generation between PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Gaming is a hobby, a passion, and even a way of life for many of the two-thirds of North Americans who play. Tackling your list is easy with so many great gaming gift ideas and options, so make this holiday season a hit with theses cool gamer gifts!
Great gifts for PlayStation gamers
PlayStation has lead the charge this console generation as one of the most popular gaming devices on the market. They make great gifts for gamer boyfriends, girlfriends, family members, or just about anyone who enjoys a unique gaming experience!
PlayStation consoles and games
Currently PlayStation offers two versions of its popular PlayStation 4 console—the PlayStation 4 Pro and the PlayStation 4 Slim. The PS4 Pro is Sony’s most powerful model, capable of playing games with incredible 4K HDR graphics. It’s the perfect upgrade for a serious PlayStation gamer who may be looking for a boost in visual fidelity. The PS4 Slim is a more economical choice, but even with a bit less power under the hood it can still comfortably play every title in the PlayStation 4 library.
Both consoles come as standalone purchases, or in bundles with some of this season’s hottest new games. Not in the market for a new console? Best Buy also offers a huge selection of PlayStation 4 software, from huge new releases to value-priced “Greatest Hits” titles, digital downloads, DLC add-ons, and much more.
PlayStation 4 accessories
There is also a vast selection of accessories sure to be counted among the best gifts for gamers this holiday season. Extra Dual Shock controllers in the latest colours and styles are always a big hit, along with amazing peripherals such as the PlayStation VR Headset and PlayStation VR Aim Controller—not to mention a variety of gaming headsets for epic sound and in-game chat.
Incredible gifts for Xbox gamers
Microsoft has been making huge strides in recent years, with innovations ranging from their incredibly powerful Xbox One X console to the revolutionary new Game Pass subscription service. Here are a few gift ideas for Xbox gamers.
Xbox consoles and games
Microsoft currently boasts the most powerful home gaming console on the market. The Xbox One X plays games in gorgeous 4K HDR, and it even doubles as a 4K Ultra HD disc player for all the latest hit movies and TV shows. Like PlayStation, Xbox also offers a more economical model in the Xbox One S. With the Xbox One X you may also opt for a version with a disc drive, or an entirely discless digital-only version.
Again these consoles make great gifts either on their own or bundled with hot new games. Another cool gift option for Xbox gamers is a prepaid card for subscriptions to services that provide access to free games such as Xbox Live (Games with Gold), Xbox Game Pass, or EA Access
Xbox controllers and accessories
New peripherals are always a great gift idea for gamers. Extra controllers are always a bonus, and you may want to consider a play-and-charge kit which will eliminate the need for endless AA batteries to power them. And with all the games Xbox players have to download these days, an external hard drive offering more memory space for your gamer’s console can be a huge benefit for even more gaming action.
Fantastic gifts for Nintendo Switch gamers
Nintendo may have been the last to release their latest home console this generation, but that didn’t stop the Nintendo Switch from becoming a massive hit. Find the perfect gift for the gamer in your life with hardware, games, and accessories for the hottest console on the market.
Nintendo Switch consoles
Nintendo has just recently released its first major hardware update to the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch Lite is a sleeker, more compact version of the Switch designed purely for portable gaming. It’s a more economical option to the original Switch, yet is still enticing players to cross over for its portability, long battery life, and aesthetically pleasing colour options, such as teal or yellow.
Of course the original Nintendo Switch is still going strong as well, and would make a perfect choice for gamers of all ages. The Nintendo Switch has revolutionized the gaming industry as the first hybrid console, playable both on the big screen in docked mode, as well as on-the-go in handheld mode.
Nintendo Switch games and accessories
The Switch features a huge library of critically lauded titles, many of which are appropriate fun for the whole family. Other great gift ideas include accessories such as extra Joy-Con controllers (they come in so many fun colours!), the Nintendo Switch Pro controller, Switch-compatible gaming headsets, and a wide variety of carrying cases designed to keep your Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite safe during travel.
