6 gift ideas for PlayStation players | Gift Guide

Sony is unpacking a lot this holiday season.  That launch of the PlayStation 5 is upon us, as players around the world clamor to transition to next-gen console gaming. Sony has also developed accessories and highly-anticipated games for the fall as well.

We’ve created a gift guide to help you pick out the perfect PlayStation gifts this holiday.

PlayStation 5

Naturally, the PlayStation 5 is the talk of the town this fall as it’s the entry point to next-gen console gaming. The PS5 features 825GB SSD and supports 4K HDR and 120 FPS.  Plus, the console will be backwards compatible with 4000+ PlayStation 4 games. It will make a great starting point for your list.

DualSense controller

Sony has designed a new controller to go alongside the PlayStation 5. One can’t ever have too many controllers, especially it offers haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. The DualSense’s touchpad has also been optimized for next-gen gaming.

PlayStation 5 HD Camera

Moving along with Sony’s latest accessories, the PlayStation 5 HD Camera offers 1080p video capture. It’s been designed to enable players to record and broadcast themselves on the dual wide-angle lenses.

PlayStation 5 Pulse 3D Headset

To get the most out of the Tempest 3D AudioTech the PlayStation 5 provides, Sony has developed the Pulse 3D headset. The headset offers two hidden microphones for voice chat as well as noise-cancellation.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales

2018’s critically acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man is getting a spin-off centring around Miles Morales. With new web-slinging opportunities, Spider-Man: Miles Morales tells an original story, featuring some iconic villains like Rhino. It’s been optimized for the PS5’s and takes advantage of the console’s raytracing.

The Last of Us Part 2

While Sony is releasing a great selection of games this holiday season, I’d be remiss to not include Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part 2. The game was an emotional rollercoaster with some fantastic performances. If you’d like to learn more, you can check out our review!

We hope our PlayStation gift guide has helped to give you some ideas of what to surprise those around you this holiday season. The year of new consoles is always exciting.
