500GB PlayStation 4 Slim console: Uncharted 4 Bundle
Here’s the first of our holiday season tech deals for the gamer in your life. This comes with a 500GB PlayStation 4 Slim, which is a good deal lighter and, as you would expect, slimmer than the first PS4, which was released in November 2013. However, it’s not considered an upgrade, as such. It’s more of a refinement of the technology, all rolled into a neater package.
The console comes witha DualShock 4 wireless controller and the highly-rated game Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
The PS4 Bundle was $299.99; it’s now $249.00, saving you $50.99, and with free shipping.

Have an elderly relative or younger sibling and want to introduce them to mobile technology? Next on our list of holiday season tech deals is the Amazon Fire tablet bundle. The tablet is the 7-inch Fire, and its features include:
- 7-inch IPS display with a 1024 x 600 resolution at 171ppi
- 8GB of internal storage, expandable up to 200GB with MicroSD card
- Rechargeable battery with up to 7 hours of life
- 1.3Ghz Quad-Core CPU and 1 GB of RAM
- Alexa cloud-based voice assistant
This bundle also includes a fifth-generation Amazon Fire Case to protect the tablet. Additionally, it comes with a NuPro Fire Screen Protector Kit, which has been developed to fit neatly over the tablet’s screen and protect it from dust, grease, and knocks.
The Amazon Fire Tablet Bundle was $87.97; it’s now $57.97, saving you $30, and with free shipping.
500GB Xbox One S console: Minecraft Bundle
If the person you’re looking to buy gaming products for has allegiances which aren’t towards Sony, maybe this 500GB Xbox One S bundle will meet his/her requirements. This console, unlike the PS4 Slim, does offer some upgrades over the original Xbox One, most of which are related to the playback of 4K content. However, the device has also been slimmed down, with the large power supply now fitting inside the device.
In the box, you will find an Xbox wireless controller, a 4K HDMI cable, and a 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial. Of course there is also the world-renowned Minecraft game, which should keep him/her busy for a while.

To experience your first mobile VR excursion, all you have to do is slide your handset into the tray and load the Oculus launcher app which is compatible with your smartphone. Then you can enjoy the wonders of VR without having to empty your bank account.
As this is a combo offer, you also get the HDMX Bluetooth headset, which offers you sumptuous audio while you explore. Additionally, the headset fits perfectly with the Gear VR for a comfortable experience.
