If you’re wondering what to get your child, teen, or other relative – video games! DealDash has many to choose from…
When you’re looking to purchase (or win!) video games as a gift for someone, the main thing that you have to figure out is what system that they use to play games. Do they use an Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Wii, a gaming computer, or something else? There are few things more disappointing to a child than to get a really awesome video game, and not be able to play it due to owning a different game system.
The good new, though, is that if they have an Xbox One they are backwards compatible, meaning that if someone already has an Xbox membership, and either digital or disc based games they are in luck, because they will work with the Xbox One.
However, there is nothing to be done if you get them an Xbox game and they have a Playstation, instead. So it’s very important that you get them the correct brand of video game.
Now that you know the most important part, the next step is to find out what types of games they like. There are many different genres of games such as:
- Tower defense
- Many, many others
Once you have determined the game system, and the preferred genre of game, then all that’s left to do is choose a game! I have had some luck with getting family members the newest releases in their favorite genre, but if you are dealing with a hardcore gamer, then they might have pre-ordered theirs already. In this case, the smartest thing to do would be to get them a gift card for the game store, or for the Xbox or Playstation digital store.
If you are thinking of getting someone video games for Christmas, why don’t you head on over to DealDash and see what auctions are currently running? There are almost always video game auctions running, of different game platforms and genres. There are also game accessories available. There are also game store gift cards up for auction.
