Looking for the right video game accessories to put under the Christmas Tree next to that Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5? I've got you covered.
After weeks and weeks of research, I've narrowed my list down to these "must have" items for both next gen consoles. Some of these will be very easy to buy. But others - particularly the PS5 controller charger and all of the headsets - are especially hard to find right now. Follow me on Twitter @SamAdamsTV and let me know what you're looking for. I'll be sure to alert you as soon as I can find one in stock somewhere.
Happy hunting, and be sure to tag any friends or family you think might find this guide helpful!
DualSense Controller - Joystick for the new PlayStation 5
*Your PS5 will come bundled with one of these controllers, but it you want a second for your gamer to play with friends or siblings, you'll need this.
Xbox Series X Wireless Controller - Joystick for the new Xbox
*These Xbox controllers come in different colors, too. If you want to avoid spending $50-$60 on a second controller for your new Xbox, controllers for the Xbox One (the older Xbox) will also work just fine!
