Playstation also has 2 systems, their is a difference, in most ads you will see the Slim version, there is also a Pro version,which usually you only see on sale as a console only no bundles, i have not seen the Pro in any of the ads as of yet.

 

just like the Xbox One X, the Pro version is 4K ready, the other version is not.

Ah, thanks for the heads up. I know there are different versions, I think the ones in the Target ad are probably not the Pro or X versions, since they come with a game.

Thank you once again.

My son has mentioned wanting a new headset for his game.  I see them in several ads, but how to tell the difference?  Is one better than the other?  I should mention, he has one that works. He says it's "just a cheap Walmart headset". But the brand I see at Walmart is the same brand in all the ads, so maybe he's looking for something more expensive and high tech?  I would just ask him, but a) he's told me not to worry about it because my budget has gotten tighter, and b ) he ALWAYS knows what he's getting for Christmas :(.  

 

SO, having said all that, what do YOU look for in a gaming headset?  Would you be happy with the $29.99 Turtle Beach Recon 150 I can get at Best Buy today? Or would you be happier with the $44.99 Turtle Beach Stealth 300 in the Target ad?  Neither?

each headset is different, a google search gave me this link

 

https://www.amazon.c...qvz5bpnnrzwc3kb

 

each kind shows a review.

 

things you don't think about,

 

how does it fit over the ears? the microphone? its the small details that is what matters to a gamer.

 

for me, i Would rather take my kid with me to the store and have them show me which model they prefer to have and explain to me why that one over another.

I am a little disappointed that there are not any better switch deals.  I may end up waiting until after the first of the year to get a switch.  It is going to be a family thing anyway, so I was only going to get it now if there were some good deals.  I may go ahead and pick up a few games and accessories while they are on sale though.

I had googled "best gaming headsets", and found a list of 5. But they were expensive (like a few of the ones in your link, but they were all up there).  Thanks for the link.

Has anyone found a PS4 Pro listed in a Black Friday ad? Some were predicting prices as low as $275, but I haven't seen any deals of any kind on the Pro model. I was really hoping that Best Buy would come through, but just looked through their ad and didn't see what I was looking for.

I haven't. I thought that was going to be on my list to buy, but my son's PS4 died last week. So he went and bought one with the bonus he had just found out he was getting.
So, at least that checks that off my list, and just leaves the VR to buy.

Probably getting a Nintendo Switch.  I am debating between Kohls deal (includes case, system, and gaming headset and 90.00 kohl's cash) or the basic deal everyone else has which is the system with mario kart 8.  Either way you pay around 230 for the system alone after you factor in the cost of the game or accessories.  My thought is that with deal at Kohls I would be able to use the 90.00 in Kohls cash to get more stuff the following week, but those items will not be on sale.  Mario Kart 8 is one of the main games my daughter wants.

I use the Kohl's cash I earn Thanksgiving week for items that coupons are not allowed on. Converse, Levi, and now toys can't have coupons used.

That's kind of my thinking as well.  If we decide to get the Switch, I think I will try to get the one from Kohls (if they are available online).  If not, I will just get the one from Walmart.
