4 accessories to take your PC gaming to the next level
Rock the joypad of the PC gamer in your life this Christmas and give them one of these must-have accessories…
- Headset - for the action lover
Take shoot ‘em ups to the next level and treat the gamer in your life to a set of pro-standard gaming headphones, which they’ll be able to comfortably play Destiny 2 or Call of Duty WW2 for hours on end in.
The HyperX Cloud Alpha headset will allow them to fully experience the game, without disturbing you or the neighbours. They’ll experience unrivalled sound quality from dual chamber technology, which can separate the bass from the mids and highs.
Even their teammates will get a better audio experience with the noise-cancelling microphone.
- For the petrolheads
Steering Wheel - for the wannabe F1 racer
Give fans of Gran Turismo Sport and Forza Motorsports the tools they deserve by getting them a proper steering wheel. With tight corners, high-adrenaline overtaking and sharp braking – this is no place for the joypad.
The Logitech Driving Force g920 steering wheel will make them feel every inch of the race. It looks and feels like a proper steering wheel and has force feedback, so the driver feels the car react to their actions when they brake hard or pull round a tight corner.
Change gears just like you’re in a real car with the Logitech Shifter bundle, where you can jump from 3rd to 5th or down to 2nd for that boost of power.
For the virtual pilot
Wannabe pilots can get a good idea of life in the cockpit of a real plane with flight simulator games.
Whether it’s landing jumbo jets on airport runways with Microsoft’s Flight Simulator X, or flying F-15 fighter jets in Lock On: Modern Air Combat, there are some incredible flight sims out there.
Make their experience even more authentic with the right hardware. Saitek Flight Yokes give you the realism and control to simulate ‘what it feels like to truly fly an aircraft’.
- Gaming Keyboard - for the hardcore gamer
Bring some extra sparkle to their gaming rig this Christmas with a robust keyboard illuminated with flashing lights.
Razer is one of the biggest names in PC gaming, and its Chroma keyboard is essential for gamers craving the personalised touch.
It puts a spectrum of 16.8 million colour options at their fingertips – from twinkling starlight to a shimmering ripple effect.
But these keyboards do more than look pretty. Razer has been working with games developers to integrate the flashing lights of Chroma into actual games, such as multiplayer shooter Evolve Stage 2 and martial arts Blade & Soul.
- Game Capture - for the next YouTube gaming star
Some of YouTube’s biggest stars are gamers, with channels boasting millions of subscribers offering tips, hacks, reviews and expert opinions.
If the gamer in your life wants to become an internet sensation, why not get them the Elgato Streaming Bundle?
Stream live gameplay from an Xbox or PlayStation to YouTube at 60fps in Full HD. If they’re making a guide, or want to show off practised moves, they can record footage with the game capture card and then upload it to YouTube as a video.
Setting up as a YouTube gamer is nowhere near as complicated as they might think. Point them in the direction of the YouTube Creator Academy for some top tips.
