Holiday Buyers Guide 2015 for Xbox Fans

Here is my first blog post since the relaunch of Xboxer. Since it tis the season I figured I’d do a post about things to watch for this holiday season. Maybe you’re looking to buy your gamer buddy something cool or shopping for yourself, you’ll find something for everyone.

Xbox Bundles

The official 1 TB Holiday bundle. You get Ori and Gears of War in glorious 1080p.

Microsoft excerpt: Own the Xbox One 1TB Holiday Bundle, featuring Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Rare Replay, and a full-game download of Ori and the Blind Forest. Play and store more games than ever with the 1TB hard drive. Experience the original Gears of War rebuilt from the ground up in 1080p, including 60FPS competitive multiplayer with 19 maps and six game modes, and five campaign chapters never released on console.

Xbox Elite Bundle

The Xbox Elite Bundle is sexy. Plus you get that badass new controller Microsoft has been working on. It is $150 alone so you probably want to avoid that unless of course you already own the Xbox one in which case you are screwed and will have to bite the bullet. Probably the best way to make your console gamer friends jelly.

Gaming Chair

Basically if you need seating there’s no better place to go than X Rocker. They’ve got the best chairs that really do rock. The prices aren’t bad, plus you get built in audio and you can move as close to the TV as you want. Check out the lineup at

Windows 10

So you’re probably aware that Windows 10 has been released and is being rolled out to computers for free. Unless you have been living under a rock of course. It has generally been well accepted by critics and users. It is honestly like Windows 7 with a bit more polish. It also has Cortana and voice recognition features. I believe this month Xbox One is getting a giant update so it is like compatible with computers with Windows 10. That means you can play games on either system you want. I’ve been getting my gaming room ready for this for like the past 6 months and I got a nice PC and console/TV set up. Yeah my lair is the best place to escape to after a long day.
