Welcome to TechNutty’s 2012 Holiday Gift Guide, helping you pick the right gaming, gadget and all around tech accessories to buy for your friends and family this Holiday/ Christmas, today we are going to take you though the best Gaming gifts starting with the down right cheap all the way to the down right awesome.
The first thing to look at when trying to find gifts for Christmas is defiantly the cheap stocking fillers, which when it comes to gaming most defiantly the games itself, here’s a list of some games you should most defiantly check out for your fillers this Christmas.
Halo 4 (Xbox 360 exclusive)
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
Assassin’s Creed 3
PlayStation All Stars: Battle Royale (Xbox 360 Exclusive)
Wonderbook (Xbox 360 Exclusive)
Zombie U (Wii U Exclusive)
Next up are some gifts which I like to call in the Goldilocks zone, not to cheap and not to expensive, starting of with the Halo 4 Xbox 360 controller, which is of course an Xbox 360 exclusive but comes in probably the coolest design I have ever seen for an Xbox 360 controller, with a see-through design painted with a unique Halo 4 design with UNSC branding and blue and white design.
If a controllers not for you however you could also pick up the Turtle Beach Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Ear Force Kilo Headset that have been designed to combine premium stereo game sound with a crystal-clear sound when talking with your friends on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network or on pC/Mac with an amplified sound, independent volume controls, cloth braided cables and 50mm speaker drivers, and an exclusive Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 design.
Alongside the Kilo Headset by Turtle Beach they have also released the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Ear Force X-Ray headset which are more than double the price than the Kilo Headset but defiantly with double the worth, as the Ear Force X-Rays are limited edition only the select few will be able to grab these headphones and take advantage of their Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, 2.4/5Ghz Dual-Band WiFi and Bluetooth for use with wireless chat on the Xbox 360 and PS3, alongside which you can also use the Bluetooth with your phone to answer phone calls, there are also multiple EQ presets as well as adjustable surround sound angles, allowing users to personalise the headset to their needs, there’s also a rechargeable Li-Po battery for 15 hours of play time per charge.
The Wii U was only released a few weeks ago so of course it has to go on the list, it is the next generation of Nintendo console gaming, and allows for an entirely new way of gaming thanks to the Wii U Gamepad which enables you to interact with games completely differently to any other game, thanks to the 6.2 inch LCD touch screen, this could be as simple as a map or as cool as a HUD, but at the end is completely down to the developer, the Wii U now includes HD graphics with the new HDMI port and can still be used with previous Wii titles.
if you haven’t already got an Xbox 360 yet, it’s defiantly time to pick one up with the new Halo 4 edition of the console, which features a custom Halo 4 blue and white design, UDSU branding and custom sounds when you press the eject or power buttons, this also comes with the controller we mentioned early as well as the game in some packages.
Or if you’re not a fan of the Xbox 360 then the new slimmer version of the PlayStation 3 is defiantly the one for you, it’s slimmer, lighter and even cheaper so it’s a win, win, win!
