New DualShock 4 Wireless Controllers
One can never have too many controllers, and Sony just released some gorgeous new PS4 controllers in October, any one of which would make a lovely gift. Whether you go for Rose Gold, Electric Purple, Titanium Blue, or Red Camo, these DualShock 4 wireless controllers make a stunning addition to any collection, and an extra controller is always handy as a backup or for local multiplayer games. Because they're brand new, each controller sells for a little under $65 on Amazon right now.
DualShock 4 Controller with Fortnite Neo Versa Bundle
Fortnite is the biggest video game in the world right now, and if the PS4 gamer on your list is still hooked on it, this DualShock 4 and Fortnite bundle is an excellent gift choice. Aside from the extra Jet Black PS4 DualShock controller, they'll also get the Neo Versa Bundle, which contains PlayStation-exclusive in-game items including the Epic Neo Versa Outfit, the Epic Neo Phrenzy Back Bling, and 500 V-Bucks. You can buy the bundle available for $51 at Amazon.
PlayStation Gold Wireless Headsets
PlayStation's first-party wireless headsets are a solid, affordable choice for PS4 owners, offering 7.1 virtual surround sound and hidden, noise-canceling microphones for online play. This headset easily links up with your gaming console of choice, but also on PC, PlayStation VR, and mobile devices. Even better: There's a Rose Gold version too, and if you know someone who's a fan of that color, you could gift it alongside the matching Rose Gold DualShock 4, which also released this fall. While you may be able to find other colors on sale, the Rose Gold version currently goes for $85 on Amazon. Honestly, headphones this good don't even need a game console to justify them.
Astro Gaming C40 TR Controller
The regular DualShock controller that ships with every PS4 is a fine option for the everyday gamer, but Astro's C40 TR controller is a major upgrade. This is a high-end controller designed to perform better in competitive games, especially shooters, due to its programmable buttons and ergonomic design. In our Astro C40 TR review, Michael Higham called it "the best 'elite-style' controller" for the PS4 so far. You can buy it at Amazon for an admittedly hefty $200.
Seagate 2TB External Hard Drive
An external hard drive probably doesn't top your list of exciting Christmas gifts, but considering how pricey they can get and how useful they are, you can bet the gamer on your shopping list will be grateful to unwrap one on Christmas. This Seagate external hard drive provides 2TB of extra storage and can store over 50 games, and you can buy one for $80.
PlayStation VR Astro Bot Rescue Mission and Moss Bundle
If they've expressed interest in a VR headset, there are plenty of PlayStation VR bundles available that come with a pair of great games along with the headset itself. This bundle includes Astro Bot Rescue Mission, a platformer where you rescue lost robots, and Moss, an adorable adventure where you guide a mouse through environmental puzzles and enemy encounters. Pricing on PSVR bundles can vary widely, but you can buy this particular bundle for $283 at Walmart.
SCUF Vantage 2 Call of Duty Modern Warfare Wireless Controller
The SCUF Vantage 2 is a highly customizable DualShock controller designed for high-performance gaming. It features four interchangeable rear paddles and two removable side action buttons that can be remapped according to preference. Its ergonomic design and textured grip also allow for more comfortable gaming over an extended period of time. This limited-edition Call of Duty: Modern Warfare SCUF Vantage 2 controller, which is releasing alongside the new game for $220, not only has a cool design, but it also unlocks an in-game item, a sniper scope charm, for the Modern Warfare. If they're not into COD but would appreciate the controller, there are more designs available for a bit cheaper on SCUF Gaming's website.
Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Wireless Gaming Headset
The Turtle Beach Stealth 700 wireless headset is another solid option for PS4 gamers although more expensive than PlayStation's first-party headset, selling for $120 on Amazon right now. It features 7.1 surround sound and active noise cancellation to help them stay fully immersed and block out distractions while gaming. The Stealth 700 headset can also connect to their phone or tablet, allowing them to take calls while gaming. It's also designed to be glasses-friendly and has leather-wrapped ear cushions for optimal comfort.
Death Stranding Limited-Edition PS4 Pro
If you're browsing around for PS4 gift ideas, chances are you're shopping for someone who already owns a PS4. But if they have a PS4 Slim, the base version of the console, they definitely won't be complaining when you surprise them with this limited-edition PS4 Pro bundle. Not only is this a more powerful system, but it also features a striking design inspired by Death Stranding, one of the most anticipated games of 2019. The bundle includes a copy of the game as well as a custom Death Stranding controller, which makes it a solid deal at $400, the price of a standard PS4 Pro on its own.
Logitech G29 Driving Force Racing Wheel
Fans of racing games will appreciate having an actual racing wheel to make playing their favorite console feel more realistic. Logitech's G29 Driving Force wheel and pedal combo is made of stainless steel and hand-stitched leather and features dual motor force feedback to simulate the actual feeling of driving a race car. It's compatible with PS4, PS3, and PC and is perfect for games like Dirt Rally 2.0 and the PS4-exclusive Gran Turismo Sport. The list price is $400, but last time we checked, this wheel was on sale for nearly 50% off, making a great way to enhance your gaming experience with racers.
DualShock 4 Charging Station
Anyone with multiple DualShock 4 controllers lying around knows how annoying it is to take turns plugging each controller into the PS4 to charge. This simple charging dock from PowerA will make charging controllers way easier, as it's able to charge two controllers at once and ensures they've always got one ready to go. Its list price is $25, but it's often on sale for less at Amazon.
PlayStation 4 Camera
The PlayStation camera is a motion sensor that's required for PlayStation VR, but it's also a handy accessory for streaming, featuring HD video and four built-in microphones for voice chat. Normally sold for $60, it was on sale for $40 the last time we checked.
PlayStation Icons Light
PlayStation's iconic button symbols are the inspiration for this colorful lamp, which will cast a soft, pretty glow in a darkened room. A perfect addition to any gaming setup, this $30 lamp has three different light modes, including a music reactive mode where the lights flash faster when music is played.
PlayStation Oil Slick Mug
Our readers loved this retro PlayStation mug when we wrote about it being on sale earlier this summer. Featuring the original PlayStation logo and a rainbow oil slick design, this eye-catching mug is a great gift for any PlayStation fan who appreciates a good cup of coffee or tea. It's available at GameStop for $10.
PlayStation Logo Foil T-Shirt
A perfect gift for the gamer who already has all the games and accessories they need, this stylish cotton tee features a shiny, holographic logo with the word "PlayStation" written in Japanese beneath. Depending on what size you need, it'll cost you between $18 and $25.
God of War Kratos Funko Pop
God of War was one of the biggest games of 2018, and if your loved one is a fan, surprise them with this collectible figure that makes Kratos, a fierce warrior, actually look adorable. You can pick it up at Amazon for $21.07.
