With holiday season looming, there has never been a better time to be putting some thought into the PlayStation Gamer in your life. For transparency’s sake, I’m an Xbox Ambassador. But I’m platform agnostic, all of these systems have their pros and cons. For our PlayStation round-up of gift ideas for 2023; we have quite a task ahead. Between the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PlayStation Portal, PlayStation VR and VR2 there is a lot to cover.
For this gift guide, we’re going to be sticking to some of the most popular and recent offerings from PlayStation. I’ll be breaking these down for what they’re for and what they tie into each system. From time working in GameStop in a past life, I remember what it’s like having to sift through what goes with what.
So hopefully this guide will make things a little easier to navigate through this holiday season.
