It’s two weeks until Christmas Day. It’s okay, breathe; Headset Buddy knows the rush of the season is coming down fast. That is why the technology and video game enthusiasts at HB wanted to help you with some gift ideas for the younger (or older) members of your holiday party. 2013 was another standout year for gaming, and the options are plentiful for that special person on your list. It goes without saying, of course, that Headset Buddy’s many, customized pieces of communication technology are perfectly compatible with many of the hot game titles circling around the shopping sphere.
The first big items on the tips of gamers’ tongues are the new game consoles that were released this year. It goes without saying that these items are probably among the most asked-for pieces of gaming equipment on the market right now. Those who are excited about Microsoft’s Xbox One will have to hold onto a reservation, though – the console isn’t officially on the market until December 31st. The Xbox’ main competition is Sony’s Playstation 4, which was released on November 15th. So although Sony gets a bit of a running start, the demand might slack ever so slightly for the Playstation because it has already been on the market a month by the time Santa is supposed to arrive.
Some of the major game titles that folks are excited to pop into the above consoles include several long-running, much-beloved franchises. Halo Xbox One, for instance, is the latest step forward for the intergalactic shoot-em-up adventure. Halo is justly famous for its epic multiplayer mode, which is probably the most influential and played platform of its type. Headset Buddy’s PC Headset Adapter for Xbox 360 Controller (White), which allows the user to follow their game experience through a PC headset, is an excellent stocking-stuffer companion for the new Halo title. Here’s the Headset Buddy Website on the item:
