Ten Accessories to Amp Up Your Gaming Experience This Holiday Season
The holiday season is officially upon us. It’s the time of crisp mornings with a tea in hand or snuggling up with a warm blanket in front of the fireplace. For most people that is. For us gamers it’s about being snuggled up with some brand new gear for our favorite gaming systems or PC. There’s no better feeling than being all cozy and warm, inside, playing a brand new adventure with some top of the line accessories. It’s magical. And to help ensure this is exactly what happens this upcoming holiday season we’ve put together a list of 10 great video game accessories that are definitely going to bring a little extra light to your life this year. They would also make amazing Christmas presents for your favorite gamers too!
PowerA MOGA XP5-X Bluetooth Controller
If you’re someone who loves to play mobile games then this is exactly what you’ve been looking for. Let’s be honest, holding a phone just isn’t the same as holding a controller. Which is where the PowerA MOGA XP5-X comes in. This controller (and clip) allows players to play on the go while giving them an edge over their competition. Playing Call of Duty Mobile? Fortnite? No problem. You’ll be on the same level as the console players now. And if your battery starts to die you can just recharge it with the integrated power bank without having to stop the fun. This controller is comfortable, especially if you’re used to playing Xbox, and it offers 2 mappable buttons. It’s also super affordable, especially right now while it’s on sale.
ROCCAT Syn Pro Air Wireless PC Gaming Headset
Typically the ROCCAT Syn Pro Air Headset would set you back $149 USD but it’s currently $50 off. Which is absolutely a steal! Hands down this is one of the best wireless gaming headsets for PC currently on the market. It provides crystal clear audio input and output offering TruSpeak technology for chatting with friends and superhuman hearing and 3D audio for ensuring every pin drop in game is audible. The Syn Pro Air is also insanely stylish with 16.8 million different colors to choose from. Add the rapid charge ability and battery life is never even something to worry about. We reviewed this headset earlier this year stating, “It doesn’t overcomplicate anything, allows for incredible customization, and is a very well-rounded headset that brings immersive gaming to the next level.”
Elgato Stream Deck
This one is for the streamers and content creators out there. The Elgato Stream Deck is exactly what you’ve been looking for to make your life easier. With its 15 LCD customizable keys you’ll be able to tap them to adjust your audio, switch between games, launch media (games or music) and a whole lot more. Customize which keys do what and you’ll never have to think twice about how smoothly your stream runs. Oh and of course, the Stream Deck doesn’t just work with Twitch or YouTube, it works with a variety of other software for complete integration like OBS, Xsplit, and Mixer. Plus you can use it to control game capture and it’s super easy to set up and use. Seems like a no-brainer really.
PlayStation DualSense Wireless Controller – Cosmic Red
If you’ve been able to snag a PS5 over the last year you’ve probably got all your friends over to try it. But if you have yet to pick up another controller you’ve probably had to share your time on the system. Well if you haven’t gotten around to scooping up another controller, then the cosmic red PS5 controller is worth your wait. Don’t get me wrong, the white DualSense controllers are stylish as hell, but the cosmic red is even better. Plus it definitely gives off those holiday spirit vibes. It’ll set you back a few extra dollars but like the white DualShock controller for PS4, this is going to be the controller everyone is going to be jealous about.
Razer Base Station V2 Chroma
Razer Base Station V2 Chroma. Not to be confused at all with any space station. Okay, I’ll stop with the lame jokes. If you’re looking for a clean look for your PC setup this is going to help immensely. The Razer Base Station V2 Chroma is a headset stand that will not only help keep your desk looking tidy, but also contemporary and snazzy. This is all thanks to the chroma lighting at the bottom that completely syncs with popular titles, as well as other Razer and partnered hardware and gear. Which means that if you just need to charge your headset for a bit, you’ll still be engrossed in your game. It also comes with a non-slip rubber base to make sure your expensive headset isn’t about to get knocked down easily, even if you do have cats that could bump it. Sounds like a solid investment to me.
