Xbox One S

Microsoft's Xbox One S is one of the most affordable ways of getting into the current generation of gaming. Though, unlike the One X, it can't play games in 4K, it can play movies in 4K, and it only costs AU$319.


PlayerUnknown's Battleground

The decision between Xbox One or PlayStation 4 is tough, and right now PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, or PUBG, is the ace up Microsoft's sleeve. The massively popular battle arena game is exclusive to the Xbox One and PC.

PlayStation 4 Pro

If you're after serious gaming power, Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro may be what you're after. Like Microsoft's Xbox One X, the AU$559 PlayStation 4 Pro outputs games in 4K. You may shoot for Sony's console if your a social gamer, as it is the more popular platform of the two. 


HyperX Cloud Alpha

These are a great idea because of their flexibility: They're great gaming headphones, especially considering the AU$129 cost, and double as lifestyle headphones that won't raise eyebrows on the commute into school.

If PUBG is too real for you, Blizzard's squad-based Overwatch may be a better fit. It'll run on almost any laptop, though at much higher resolution if said computer has a discrete graphics card, and is fun in groups.
