From Sony to Oculus to Nintendo, StockX has everything you need to pwn the holidays.

The holidays and video games seem to always go hand-in-hand. From the legendary N64 to the traditional madness around finding next-gen consoles, gaming has more wins over the holidays than the Hallmark channel. But now, gaming looks a lot different from just a handful of consoles, with the explosion of VR and the cultural impact of streaming continuing to grow, the space is bigger and better than ever.

Lucky for you? We’ve been into gaming for a minute, from next-gen consoles to graphics cards, StockX has all of the must-haves for gamers in your life available to shop right now (yourself included). Hit the shopping guide below and get your game on with us.

Sony PlayStation 5 PS5 Digital Edition Console

Since 2028 is still a ways away, it’s time to get up on the latest in gaming with the Sony PlayStation 5 console. The PS5 boasts some truly amazing specs, including a custom eight-core AMD Ryzen CPU, a Radeon Navi GPU, and 16GB of GDDR6 RAM. This makes it more powerful than both the Xbox One X and the Nintendo Switch. 

The PS5 also comes with a DualShock controller that features adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, which will give players an even more immersive gaming experience. And if that wasn’t enough, the console will also support 4K resolution and 8K graphics, making it the perfect choice for gamers who want the best possible gaming experience.

Meta (Oculus) Quest 2 128GB VR Headset

The Oculus 2 VR headset is one of the most popular  on the market, and for good reason. It offers an incredibly immersive experience that is sure to please any gamer. With its crisp, clear display and its advanced audio capabilities, the Oculus 2 is perfect for gamers who want to get lost in their games. 

The headset also comes with a built-in microphone and headphones, which allow gamers to communicate with each other easily and without interruption. And with its lightweight and comfortable design, the Oculus 2 is perfect for long gaming sessions.

Microsoft Xbox Series X Mini Fridge

Sometimes your Call of Duty session runs a little too long, and you need a big pick me up. An energy drink or five’ll usually do the trick. Why not make sure that your energy essentials are stored in a thematic way with the Xbox Series X Mini Fridge. 

Made by Ukonic, this sleek matte-black tower holds up to 12 cans of your favorite beverage, and with two-door shelves, you’ll be sure to have your favorite snacks at the ready.

Nintendo Switch OLED (White)

Maybe it’s because I am an old, washed, semi-retired gamer of a dad – but for me, nothing beats the OLED Nintendo Switch. Gone are the days of pulling all-nighters to blast people away online, now my gaming happens in 20-minute sprints, or when I happen to be stuck on an airplane and not sleeping.

The Nintendo Switch OLED is the perfect console for gamers who want a portable gaming experience. With its bright and clear display, the OLED Switch is perfect for gaming on the go. Plus you can enjoy classic titles with their Nintendo 64 and Super Nintendo emulator available through Switch Online.
