The Hardware

You can’t play the best games that the PlayStation 4 has to offer with having an actual PlayStation 4, and there are a couple of options available for your favorite gamers. Essentially you have the PlayStation 4 Slim with a 1TB hard drive, or the PlayStation 4 Pro if your giftee has been especially nice this year. Of course, there currently exists a PlayStation 4 Pro bundled with Red Dead Redemption 2 that is likely the best bang for your buck.

Perhaps the cheapest and most easily accessible form of VR gaming at this point in time is the PlayStation VR, which performs best with the PlayStation 4 Pro. If you have a gamer itching to hop into VR, there are a lot of virtual worlds awaiting their entry such as Skyrim VR, DOOM VFR, and Rick & Morty: Virtual Rick-ality. There are 2 bundles currently running with different games, all of which are sure to be some fun times.

Your favorite gamer already has a PS4 and PSVR? Well, there are a few other nifty items that are necessities when it comes to playing on the PlayStation 4. In order to play games, of course, you have a need for a controller, and our personal favorite is the new Berry Blue one, though there are a few other options to choose from. What good is having an online multiplayer game when you can’t play with anyone? Enter the PS Plus subscription and your gamer will be connected in no time. Lastly, a 1TB hard drive can be quick to fill up, look no further than a 2TB external hard drive to keep the games coming!
