It may have taken a little while, but now that there's a solid catalogue of games, the PS4 has finally come of age.

Add in some great entertainment apps like Foxtel Play and the impressive "instant game collection" that comes with a PlayStation Plus membership and 2014 might be the perfect Christmas for grabbing a PS4.

You're still paying top dollar for these, despite them being a few years old now. But you know what? The Astro A50's are still delivering top quality, so they're definitely worth grabbing this year.

The latest Assassin's Creed game takes the action away from the high seas of Black Flag and into the French Revolution.

With a new game engine and new mechanics, AC: Unity is guaranteed to put the next-gen consoles through their paces.

While not quite the crowd pleaser that Black Flag was, there's a lot to like here, especially for AC fans.

A super-sylised (and stylish) third person platform shooter that literally puts the action on rails.

Brightly coloured and frantic, Sunset Overdrive makes the zombie apoloclypse a fun place to be.

Finally: an Xbox exclusive worth having!

The long-awaited next instalment in the Dragon Age series almost over-delivers on its promise.

A sprawling open world combines with a killer storyline and great character to make a game so in-depth and engaging, it should be illegal.

Not only the best in the Dragon Age series, this is one of the best RPGs out there, full stop.

While you can plug any old headphones into the PS4 controller, you'll need an adaptor for that to work on the Xbox One -- so why not invest in some 7.1 wireless surround cans instead?

The Stealth 500X from Turtle Beach uses a USB port and the optical out on your console to provide you with quality wireless sound and chat. At AU$370 they're not cheap, but you are getting DTS 7.1 channel with custom sound modes -- and the headphones are rechargeable and comfy too boot.
