Are you Christmas shopping for someone who loves to play video games on the computer? This can be a daunting task, but with a little information you should have no problem finding a gift that they will love. Many of the popular games available for PS3, XBox 360, and the Wii are also available for the PC. Here is a list of great Christmas gifts for PC gamers. You will find various games, accessories, and more that should give your loved one a Merry Christmas this year.
Assassin’s Creed 2 – This is my #1 game recommendation for Christmas 2009 on all game systems. The sequel to Assassin’s Creed drops you into 15th century Italy as the character Ezio, a new assassin. You can roam the city, do as you choose, and play any mission you choose. This game is a must for any PC gamer. It will be available for sale in November and will cost roughly $49.99.
Yoostar Entertainment System – If you’ve ever wanted to be a movie or television star here is your chance. The Yoostar Entertainment System is a web cam and green screen set up that plugs into your computer and lets you act out scenes from your favorite movies or television shows. You can be in movies such as Saw 2, The Godfather, Rocky, and Coming to America. Additional movies can be downloaded from Yoostar.com. This unique setup will cost you around $170 and will be available November 3, 2009.
PC Speakers – A good set of PC speakers can really do a lot to enhance game play. There are many models available at a wide variety of prices. I guess when shopping for speakers this Christmas your budget will be the biggest determining factor. Best Buy offers a wide variety of products ranging from $35 all the way up to $100+. Personally I wouldn’t skimp out when buying PC speakers, but that’s just me.
Logitech Racing Wheel Game Controller – If your PC gamer loves racing games, then a great gift to give them this Christmas is a racing wheel game controller. The Logitech controller features a leather wrapped steering wheel, 6 speed shifter, and stainless steel gas, break, and clutch. This controller is compatible with the PlayStation 2 as well as the PC. For $300 your gamers will be in racing heaven.
Gaming Headset – For some games it is just better to have a headset. You can hear the action as well as communicate with your friends and fellow gamers. Headsets, like PC speakers come in a wide variety of models. If your loved one is a serious gamer then you might choose a higher end model. A mid-range gaming headset will run you about $50-$60 at Best Buy. If you shop around you could find a better deal (like on E-Bay).
