Xmas Gift Guide With last year's release of Xbox 360 Kinect and PlayStation Move, traditional console add-ons have been pushed out of the limelight. However when searching for the ideal Crimbo presents, the customary line-up of videogame hardware is always a laudable choice. Especially when shopping for yourself.
Here's five options to spice up your love life - if you're married to your console, of course.
Gaems G155 Mobile Gaming Environment
I've seen slick set-ups over the years, as people bid to bring their bulky consoles on road trips and budget hotel accommodations. Essentially all you need is a small HD display, which can be picked up reasonably cheaply these days. But unless you build a custom case for it all, things can get messy quick.
For convenience's sake, fork out a little more and you can pick up one of these beauties - and save yourself a lot of DIY in the process.
The Gaems G155 Mobile Gaming Environment is effectively a console suitcase with a built-in 15.5in display. It'll still need some form of AC power, but most trains and even the occasional coach has wall-sockets now, so there's nothing holding you back from hardcore gaming on the move. Niiiice.
Compatibility Xbox 360, PS3

Logitech G930 Bluetooth headphones
While immature profanities from rival Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 players are certainly amplified, with a decent set of headwear there's no need to fork out for an expensive surround sound setup - or piss off a spouse as harrowing Skyrim noises overpower their Hollyoaks omnibus.
Logitech's G930 are a slick choice, offering over 40ft of wireless range with a battery life of over nine hours. These cans also pack Dolby Pro Logic II 7.1 virtual surround sound and some handy built-in button controls.
We proposed that these bad boys would be on our Christmas shopping list and while six months have passed since the claim was made, we see little reason to deviate.
Have a look at why we gave them our Editor's Choice award in our Ten... gaming headsets roundup here on Reg Hardware.

You idiots! Our wives bought our presents weeks ago and you post this today? What we need is presents 'for her', ideally ones that can be purchased in the next 48 hours.
Dont know about you guys but I have a price of £20-£30 per person, not £100 that's ridiculous.
For 150 quid it damn well better be an amazing pair of headphones!
that looks awesome! and I was just wondering how feasible it would be to sneak the ps3 into the car so when I open my xmas present on sunday and it's a ps3 game, i'd be able to get a few hours playing in. but sadly, not sure the girlfriend's parents would appreciate my taking over the telly. THIS however would be the perfect solution. The _almost_ perfect solution, actually, as would still have to find away to avoid the girlfriend's wrath when she discovers I've disappeared from the annual xmas day family marathon board game event and am plugged in to Uncharted3 in the front room instead :)
Lugging around a computer system in a case?
That's very 80's.
Nowt wrong with a gaming laptop / tablet for gaming on the go when a handheld / smartphone isn't enough
