Choosing the perfect gift for a video gaming enthusiast can be quite the challenge. This is especially true if you don’t know a thing about video games. If the player on your Christmas list loves their PS3, they are sure to love any of these affordable stocking stuffer ideas.
I love getting new games. However, I don’t always like to get games as gifts. Why? I’m pretty picky when it comes to the genres that I play (I am a first person shooter kind of guy). If you want to get a PS3 game as a stocking stuffer but don’t know what title to get, you might consider getting your player a monthly membership to Gamefly. Gamefly is a by-mail rental service that allows players to borrow an unlimited number of games. This is an especially great gift for players who can easily beat an entire game over a single weekend.
Tip – Don’t want to give a gift that comes with a monthly fee? If you still want to get your player a new game, you might consider stuffing their stocking with a gift card to a local game shop or department store so they can choose their own.
Sony PS3 Blu-ray Remote
Probably one of the best features of the PS3 is its Blu-ray capabilities. This gives the console the ability to display high quality DVDs. If your player watches a ton of movies on their PS3, the Sony Blu-ray remote is a great stocking stuffer idea.
Wireless Keyboard Attachment
Are you the parent to a text-happy teenager? Well, the PS3 wireless keyboard attachment is perfect. This mini keyboard snaps directly onto most PS3 controllers and allows the player to easily type in-game text or chat with friends online.
Playstation Move Navigation Controller
In the last five years, the console gaming world has faced some drastic changes. With the introduction of the Nintendo Wii’s motion gaming capabilities, players can now play games though body motion versus a traditional console controller. Playstation Move technology is Sony’s response to the new and growing trend in the industry. If your player hasn’t gotten the opportunity to try this new technology, the Playstation Move Navigation Controller might just be a great stocking stuffer.
Playstation Move Charging Station
There is nothing worse than having to stop to recharge your controller when you are making a run for a new high score. If the player on your list already has Playstation Move controllers, they may need a charging station to keep their batteries nice and charged.
