The holiday season has a lot of good gifts for someone who is an avid Xbox fan. Whether they have a Xbox 60 or were able to get their hands on a shiny new Xbox One. With so many peripherals available on the Xbox 360 and the recently released Xbox One, you’re bound to find something for the gamer in your life. The best part about the new consoles hitting the shelves right before the holiday seasons is that all Xbox 360 peripherals are going to be even cheaper this year, so even if you haven’t gotten your hands on a new console you will be able to pick up some very good hardware.
Xbox 360 Quick Charging Station:
No doubt you’ve got the wireless 360 controller if you own a console. If you don’t have one of these convenient little charging stations you’re missing out. These things take a massive load off your wallet in the long-term when you no longer have to buy and change batteries. Just a few rechargeable batteries and one of these stations can keep you in a weekend marathon gaming session while you’re out of work or on break for University.
Elgato Game Capture:
This neat little unit may not be in your price range at 170 bucks. But if it is, and either you or someone on your shopping list who is into generating and streaming content to the web then there is no doubt this will make for a perfect gift. There is sure to be even a few people that work for this site that want one of these handy-dandy magical capture devices.
12-Months of Xbox Live:
12 months of Xbox live is great for anyone with either a 360 or an Xbox One. You aren’t just paying for the ability to play online with people anymore either. Microsoft took a page out of Sony’s playbook and started giving out free games monthly as well. There is a bit more to go around now and it works with the new hardware giving you a new set of features.
Microsoft Bluetooth Wireless Headset:
Who wants to be tethered. You’ve already gone wireless with your controllers, you might as well go wireless with your headset too. No annoying cable, and its a low profile design will stay out of the way for the wearer and ensure it’s comfortable fit. This is perfect for any online gamer who plays with his friends.
A New Controller:
The Xbox One only comes with a single controller so you may want to think about picking up another controller, especially if you’ve got more than one gamer in the house. Everyone has their favorite gamepad too, so why not look for some new colors, or just go with standard, simple and always elegant, black. There are even some really nice customer controllers out there. The same company [evilcontrollers.com] that makes really nice PS4 controllers has also released a nice, snazzy line of Xbox One controllers as well.
360 has a great selection of racing games, why not spring for a steering wheel that gives the racing fan on your list a better feel than a few buttons and some silly, little analogy sticks. Give them the gift of steering for the holidays, because letting people slide their whip around a hair-pin turn with all the grace and elegance of a 400 horsepower car is one of the simple joys in life that everyone should be able to experience, even if it’s just in a video game.
Xbox One Gift Cards:
These things will certainly make sure the gamer in your life gets what they want for the holidays. Depending on the value of the card you will be able to buy latest games, map packs, music, movies, TV shows and more. It also serves as a great credit card alternative.
Microsoft Xbox One:
If you’re a big spender or have some extra money laying around for the holiday season, why not get an Xbox One for the family? It’s not just for gaming these days and is a kind of handy tool for any TV junkies out there as well. With all the great games on it, you can probably even find something fun for the -non-gamers in the family to get into. It’s a bit more expensive than it’s competition, however it’s got the Kinect standard with it.
