Best Gaming Hardware Holiday Gifts

The best gaming consoles, accessories, and bundles to get.

The holiday sales are here, which means major price drops for every item on the proverbial shelf. This is also the time when retailers bundle their consoles with a ton of games, and their accessories with a ton of, well, other accessories. If you’re looking to make the most out of your holiday budget, below are some of the best gaming hardware gifts you can purchase.

Sony PlayStation 4 1TB Slim with three games

The PS5 has been out for a while, which means that PS4 prices are dropping. If the person you’re gifting to doesn’t own the console, get this Slim bundle. Not only does it include three multi-awarded Sony exclusive games (The Last of Us, God of War, and Horizon Zero Dawn) but also a 1TB hard drive. With some triple-A titles like Final Fantasy VII Remake requiring around 100GB of space, a 1TB hard drive will let them store a lot of great games.

Nintendo Switch Fortnite Wildcat Bundle

Most Nintendo Switch special edition models, like the Animal Crossing New Horizons Nintendo Switch, don’t have the game included in its package. However, the Fortnite version does. This bundle, in particular, includes Wildcat cosmetics, like the Sleek Strike Back Bling and the Wildcat Outfit. This limited edition model comes with a yellow and blue joycon pair as well as a Fortnite-decorated Nintendo Switch dock.

There’s no other gaming headset like the Cloud II Wireless. The Cloud II features a clear and well-rounded sound.
