Should you wait until Christmas?

Let's face it, getting ahead of the game isn't always the easiest thing, especially with Christmas, but this year is certainly a good time to start getting into the habit!

There are two major sales ahead of Christmas. Amazon Prime Day is rumoured to be around October this year, and the Black Friday Sales begin on 27 November.

NEXT-GEN IS NEARLY HERE! The PS5, and its advanced controller the DualSense, are incoming!

Both sales are fantastic opportunities to purchase any of the items we'll go into below, at significant discounts, and provide a good opportunity to get 'next-gen ready' ahead of the PS5 release date.

PS5 Compatible Gaming Headsets

When it comes to PS5 gift ideas, gaming headsets are a top contender for Christmas 2020. 

Both wireless and wired headsets are said to work on the PS5, which means that you have an enormous selection even now!

PREMIUM QUALITY, FOR LESS! Many top-level headsets become surprisingly affordable in the pre-Christmas sales

If you're planning on going for some seriously immersive titles on PS5, like Assassin's Creed Valhalla or future jaw-dropping games like Project Athena, a headset is definitely the way to go.

On the other hand, if competitive online gaming is your bag, a headset with amazing mic quality, comfort, and audio quality could give you the edge you need in Warzone, Fortnite or Apex Legends matches!


TVs for PS5

When it comes to picking the right TV, there are so many factors which go into it, making it one of the great, but trickiest gift ideas to pull off for Christmas 2020. Luckily, here's what you need to know before committing to it!

First off, you'll want to ensure that whatever TV you're going for is either 4K or 8K. The next is 120 fps support and an ultra-low input lag ( which would be under 7.2ms).

READY FOR PS5: There are some great TVs out there, which will be able to showcase next-gen in all its glory!

Another key feature is HDMI 2.1 support, which includes Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM). 

If you want a TV which will get the most out of PS5, we'd recommend making sure the above is ticked before purchasing, however, if you're looking to save - then going for a 4K TV or 8K TV could be the one for you!

Both Black Friday and Amazon Prime Day are awesome destinations for deals on TVs, so be sure to check them out!

PS5 Games

PS5 games are one of those perfect gift ideas for Christmas 2020, especially as there are going to be some amazing titles released at launch.

As mentioned, Assassin's Creed Valhalla is getting its own launch for PS5, as is NBA 2K21

If we go purely by NBA 2K21's pricing, then you could expect to pay a little more for the PS5 games compared to PS4. However, companies like EA are offering schemes such as Dual Entitlement for games which will be playable on PS5, but not have a next-gen specific release.

That means for titles like FIFA 21, you can actually purchase the game for PS4, and have it for free on PS5! And with backwards compatibility for PS4 games, you can still purchase some absolute classics like God of War, The Last of Us Part 2, or Ghost of Tsushima, and still get to enjoy them on your next-gen console!
