Popular Gaming Accessories and Gear for this Holiday Season

The holiday shopping season is officially in full swing. Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals seemed bigger than ever this year, with so much more activity taking place online. This is great news for us gamers - not only are we able to get some amazing hardware for low, low prices, but we can do it without leaving the comfort of our own homes. That means more time for the important stuff like you know, gaming! And in the end, isn’t that what all this is about? In this article we look at some of the best gaming gear and gaming accessories that work for PC, PS4, or XBox One. We’ve seen a lot of items go on sale already, and the deals have only just begun!

SteelSeries Arctis 5 - RGB Illuminated Gaming Headset with DTS Headphone:X v2.0 Surround

An immersive gaming experience is key for maximum enjoyment, and the SteelSeries Arctis 5 gives you exactly that. SteelSeries has carved a niche in the industry by making extremely high-quality headphones that are compatible with both your PC and PlayStation consoles. Steelseries are super comfortable to wear, and they come complete with DTS v2.0 surround sound so that it feels like you are actually in the game.  

As everyone knows hearing is only half of it, and luckily the Arctis 5 also delivers on a great mic experience offering crystal clear sound with its bidirectional microphone. That means it’s perfect for yelling out commands to your buddies during a LoL session OR for streaming high-quality audio to Twitch.

Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed Wireless Optical Gaming Mouse

Games are about control, that starts with a great mouse -- for our money the Razer - Basilisk X Hyperspeed Wireless Optical Gaming Mouse is one of the best on the market. Compatible with both MacOS and Windows machines, this is a sleek, perfect little mouse that has six total buttons for complete control no matter what game you play. We love that it’s wireless, but is also able to interface with a USB, meaning that you’ll never experience connectivity issues. Honestly, we shouldn’t need to sell you on this anymore, if you’re in the market for a gaming mouse the search stops here.

Outfox Optimized Gaming Network 

If you game, you need to optimize your gaming experience. We may be a little biased here, of course, but Outfox is the ultimate in optimized gaming networks. It keeps you nimble, maneuvering past network traffic to find you the best past to your game’s server. This means you can reduce lag and lower ping. Even tackle that all-annoying jitter. Right now you can get $10 off a yearly subscription. Optimizing your gaming performance for only $29.99? You can’t afford not to.

Happy holidays, it’s time to game.
