Do you have a gamer on your list that you are unsure of what to get them this Holiday season? How about a shiny new PlayStation 4? Sony came out with the PlayStation 4 Pro just a few months ago, which is a pretty solid upgrade over the original PlayStation 4. The PlayStation 4 Pro comes with double the storage, 1TB versus 500GB and also offers 4K content. So not only can you play games in 4K but also watch 4K content from the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and much more. The PlayStation 4 Pro also upscales that content to 4K, so that you still have a crisp looking picture on your TV.

Both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 4 Pro are great consoles to pick up this Holiday season. This console isn't just good for playing games, but you can also make it the hub of your entertainment system. It can play movies and TV shows from all of your favorite providers. These include Google Play Movies & TV, Sling TV, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and even Sony's own store. So you're able to sit back and watch a good movie, or settle in for an all-night gaming session by your TV. One of the more popular bundles with the PlayStation 4 this Holiday season is with Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Now if you don't have a 4K TV for that PlayStation 4 Pro, it's definitely worth it to check out this VIZIO TV. This is from their SmartCast E-Series of TV's and it's main feature is the fact that it has Chromecast built in. Meaning that you'll be able to Cast your favorite movies and TV shows straight from your smartphone on over to your TV without even connecting to the WiFi network, or using up one of the precious HDMI ports. This TV from VIZIO is one of the best TV's for its price, out there. It's also a 4K TV so that you can take full advantage of the capabilities of the PlayStation 4 Pro. Some of these, like the VIZIO SmartCast E-Series 55-inch TV, won't fit under the tree this Holiday season, they will definitely be a great gift.
