Below you’ll find our gaming accessory recommendations:

Holiday Guide 2017 - Gaming Accessories

AVerMedia Live Gamer Portable 2 Plus

If you want to step up your capture and streaming game from the console capabilities, look no further than the AVerMedia LGP2+. Our review details the features. 

DualShock 4

Sony has been coming out with some incredible new colors of DualShock 4, including the pictured Crystal version. If someone has a PS4, a new DualShock 4 isn't a bad way to go, and might hint that you want to play some games with them.

Gunnar Computer Glasses

I don't leave home without them (mostly because I don't leave home). Whether working or gaming, Gunnar glasses have reduced headaches and eye strain I get from sitting in front of screens too long. I swear by them, and my bad days are the ones when I don't put them on. 

KontrolFreek Destiny 2 Ghost Thumbsticks

Thumbstick extenders do a couple of things. They can protect the rubber on your thumbsticks, and actually increase sensitivity of movement by making the thumbstick taller. This unique design is from the best selling game of 2017, so why not give them to the gamer in your life?

Plantronics RIG 4VR Headset

If you know someone with PSVR headset, these headphones are just what they need. Narrow ear cups fit over the device easily, and it has a design that looks like it belongs. It can also double as a standard headset, with excellent sound and a great boom mic. Don't miss our review on them.

Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Headset

It's hard to match the quality/price balance you'll get with a headset like the Turtle Beach Stealth 600. Check out our review for a full rundown, and consider this headset for the gamer that needs an upgrade to their console audio game.
