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.
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.
