Christmas Gift Guide 2020

Choose which Platform:

Alright Mum and Dad, let me begin this Guide by breaking the bad news. You’re not going to find a PlayStation 5 or XBOX Series X for your child this Christmas. That is unless you pay an exorbitant eBay auction price, or the highly unlikely situation where you get lucky and receive notice of a fresh batch of units coming through prior to the big day. This guide will hopefully soften the blow for kids out there writing letters to Santa, tirelessly begging for their brand new home console under the tree this year. But I will say, if you do score either console before Christmas day, kudos… It must have been an interesting scenario wrestling other parents out of the food court with a steadfast stampede in tow. Regardless, I hope this guide helps out anyone before Christmas or on the big day. It’s going to be a rough one this year, but there are plenty of items up for grabs that will keep the kids, Mums, Dads, and other family members busy right through the new year, and hopefully to an arrival of fresh next gen units.

PlayStation 4

A Top-Up...

Want to give the kids, the hubby, the granny, the boyfriend, the girlfriend or the wife absolute freedom and control over their choices? Well, a simple wallet top-up is your solution.

Available in values of $5, $15, $30, $50 (Recommended) and $100, you can’t go wrong. This allows you to gift that someone a flexible choice of a game, the DLC they’ve been eyeing, or a PlayStation Plus Subscription (12 Months $79.99AUD).

Best of all, they can use this on PS4, PS5 and PS Vita.

Here comes Spider-Claus...

The sequel to 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man for PlayStation 4, Miles Morales is the next chapter in the Spider-verse. And for the youngsters, this is a treat; especially those that loved the recently released Animated feature length smash hit, Spider-Man: Enter the Spider-verse.

Miles Morales takes the reigns of our friendly neighbourhood masked vigilante, while Peter takes a quick holiday in Europe (boy, they aren’t living in COVID times). Only, the unexperienced teen has his hands full with a new threat looming over New York City.

PlayStation 5

Santa Slays Souls...

Hey kids, remember this PlayStation 2 classic?

How about a revisit to the ever frustrating isle of Boletaria. Demon’s Souls is a complete remake of the 2009 cult hit that revolutionised RPG’s and formed a genre of its own. The unforgiving ‘Souls’ category tests gamer’s will to continue, or even particpate.

Do you have the mental fortitude to take on hordes of monsters and devious mutants? Swing you blade, fight flurries of ferocious beasts and defeat the evil King Allant.
