You cannot go wrong gifting any of these from my top gaming gear list for the holidays. Here’s what made the 5 best ideas for the gamer in your life.
This put VR on the map. Period.
Samsung Gear VR with Controller powered by Oculus
This is what made the VR and 360 degree experience a huge hit and took it mainstream. New this year is the addition of the Oculus powered controller that makes all the difference. Slide in your favorite Samsung Galaxy or Note device and you are ready to take on virtual reality anywhere you go. This is high quality and easily one the best VR experiences. The fact that Samsung Gear VR is so easy and fun to use is why it put virtual reality on the map. With 1,000s of apps ready to download, Samsung Gear VR is top in its class. Samsung Gear VR with Controller powered by Oculus $129.99
Newest Game Console
Nintendo Switch Console is the newest console from Nintendo. The name switch comes from the idea that Nintendo has developed a gaming device that can switch between being a great home console played on tv to easily taking it on the go with its 6.1 inch display. The Joy-Con controllers slide off and on the sides for easy single and multiplayer activity. Nintendo Switch $299.99
Fresh take on a classic game
On of my favorite games from Konami is Super Bomberman R game for the Nintendo Switch. It’s a new fresh take on the hit game introduced first in 1983. Now there are several modes for play. Battle mode for up to 8 players competing, Story mode for up to 2 players clearing stages, and Grand Prix mode which lets you go team to team for up to 3 players for each team to battle it out. Look for fun characters, new worlds and more than 50 maps in this newest version of Super Bomberman R. $49.99
Best stocking stuffer for gamers ever
If you are buying for a gamer and have no idea what to do, memory is always a safe bet. I just tried and loved the new SanDisk MicroSDXC memory cards for the Nintendo Switch that let me preload my favorite games and content and take on the go. Made so popular because it’s so quick and easy to use, have lifetime warranty and this memory is licensed by Nintendo and certified to work with the Nintendo Switch. SanDisk MicroSDXC memory card 64GB $49 and 128GB $99
