Best Gifts for Your PS3 This Holiday

Abby Reyes's Avatar Posted by Sr. PR Specialist, Hardware

Hi PlayStation.Blog readers! Since this is my first post, allow me to take a minute to introduce myself. My name is Abby Reyes and I work on the hardware PR team here at SCEA. We’re already eight days into December and the holiday shopping is in full swing. With all of the hustle and bustle, I thought I’d take a few moments to walk you through some of the great new official PlayStation accessories available this holiday season.

By now you’ve hopefully had the opportunity to test out the exciting and new PlayStation Move platform. Adding Move to your gaming arsenal is not the only way to elevate your experience on PS3 system. Designed to maximize your overall entertainment experience, finding a new Bluetooth Headset, a Surround Sound System, or a “Candy Pink” DualShock 3 wireless controller under the tree is sure to make anyone’s holiday a little brighter this year – at prices starting as low as $49.99(MSRP). As many of you know, PS3 is already the most complete home entertainment solution available this holiday season and tops many gamers’ wish lists. When combined with any of our newest titles, such as Gran Turismo 5, The Sly Cooper Collection, or SingStar Dance, PS3 instantly becomes something everyone in your entire family can enjoy and play together.

Surround Sound System Angled Bluetooth Headset 2.0 Pink Dualshock 3

These peripherals are available at local retailers around the U.S., so be sure to check them out. As always, let us know your thoughts and enjoy!

My whole Family is a part of the Sony Family. We have been supporters for a very longtime. We have most of the above mentioned items. Looking forward to a very bright future with the PlayStation/Sony brand.

Ontopic: For me, I’ll be grabbing that new bluetooh device.

Nynja said:

had already picked up the new headset about 2 weeks ago, to replace the old PS3 headset.

I hope more ppl will pick up the headset and start using mics in games that support them.

Lanmanna said:

December 8th, 11:04 am

I want all of that! Save for the pink controller. I like red and blue more. xD

Also, Abby Reyes is cute.

    Pink is definitely my favorite, but we have a number of other great colors for folks to choose from too. :) And thanks for the compliment, Lanmanna!

Great gift ideas. But how about a discount or deal to buy these?

VectorRaven said:

December 8th, 11:09 am

Next console release should have a headset in the box. Hmm might have my sisters by those things for me for Christmas muwhahaha

PaperCarrier said:

December 8th, 11:13 am

Hot pink would have been nicer than candy for the controller. I could only imagine my friend’s reaction after giving him a pink controller xD.

naruto_hinata said:

December 8th, 11:19 am

Awesome speakers! Like the simplicity it has.

Heisem said:

December 8th, 11:20 am

that pink DS3 looks awesome!

PaperCarrier said:

December 8th, 11:22 am

While most living rooms have larger home theater systems, the PS3 speaker system wouldn’t be necessary there but it would be great for a bedroom.

Abby, you look beautiful.

ChrisMorell said:

December 8th, 11:27 am

Whoa Abby, you’re so famous now. Though really, no Harry Potter holiday gifts? I don’t even know you anymore.

S_Y_N_1_S_T_3_R said:

December 8th, 11:28 am

Abby Reyes would be the ultimate gift to any PS3 playing man.

cupcake_jihad said:

December 8th, 11:30 am

Tiduz said:

SuperCoOper777 said:

    Damn straight! I heart my Candy Pink D3. =)

morph147 said:

December 8th, 11:45 am

what is the official name of the new headset havent been able to find it online yet

MoneyMaker110 said:

December 8th, 11:47 am

my niece might dig that pink controller. i might gift the headset since i’ve had my ps2 socom headset, a couple bluetooth headsets from phones and the first official headset.

subbed said:

December 8th, 11:51 am

I got the new headset and while being nicer than the original still cant duel purpose that well with my phone. I have huge reservations about a sound bar. Has anyone tried it and was it worth it? 2.1 channels with proprietary S-Force technology creates the equivalent of a surround sound system is hard to believe.

bgenius said:

December 8th, 11:52 am

I’ll have to pick up the surround sound system for my room, no doubt.

I’m pretty sure you already know this, Abby, but you are very beautiful.

NinthGenHero said:

December 8th, 11:54 am

I’m thinking about that surround sound :) Abby were you at the PS Move Event in DC? My cousin still remembers you leaving him hanging at the demo booth lol thanks for coming out and great first post!

TheChicagoShadow said:

December 8th, 11:59 am

How about a purple ds3 I want one so bad

kdiep said:

December 8th, 11:59 am

Bluetooth headset is tempting, but I already have the original one :/

Alpha6UFS said:

December 8th, 12:08 pm

Awesome, love the bluetooth headset and pink controller for my friend, she is gonna love it; thanks for the heads-up, Abby. We want to see more cool posts from cute Abby ^_^v

kivi95 said:

December 8th, 12:14 pm

When are you realising new colurs for the ps3 system?

perrandy said:

December 8th, 12:21 pm

what a nice looking lady! wink wink
out of curiosity abby, what background are you from?we know that jeff is ukranian/jewish rey is cuban,grace is chinese/taiwanese…
seems like you guys at sony have a mini UN over there lol.

MegamiTensei13 said:

December 8th, 12:23 pm

Abby is soooooooo Cute :)

cortesc130 said:

December 8th, 12:25 pm

The best gift from Sony would be new features like voice messaging, party chat and to be able to change your PSN ID without losing anything. Thats what Sony needs to give their customers for Christmas.

Anddo said:

December 8th, 12:27 pm

@20- couldn’t agree more. :D

I may pick up the new bluetooth.. Still own the original, but the newer model looks like a worthy upgrade.

PS: This is how you sell a product.. More Abby please :)

TomHoang said:

December 8th, 12:38 pm

I want that sound bar!

solace357 said:

December 8th, 12:50 pm

Haha @ Rey with the Pink DS3. I need to check out some reviews for that Sound bar. My surround sound system isn’t very friendly with my PS3.
Welcome to the blog Abby!

Ghost-of-SpartaX said:

December 8th, 1:05 pm

hahaha pretty in pink!

Butters360 said:

December 8th, 1:06 pm

So where is our Abby Reyes Dynamic theme already?

On another note; Veronica Belmont, Audrey Cleo, Christina Lee, and NOW Abby Reyes?! Hot damn, Sony knows how to hire them!

TigerLust said:

December 8th, 1:09 pm

I’m glad you girls (no offense Rey ;) have your candy pink DS3’s. When you guys decided to add another color to the arsenal, please add turquoise!

PS: I already have a PS3, but I think it is silly that you guys released a bundle with Singstar Dance sans a Move controller…

Massive_13 said:

December 8th, 1:17 pm

I’ve been wanting these speakers, been seeing em, but I have yet to see the price, or the model number. Do you know the price on these speakers?

Massive_13 said:

December 8th, 1:21 pm

Never mind I found out the price. They’re $199.99

Arcadian_Rebel said:

December 8th, 1:31 pm

Great accessories! I already have what I need, though. :)

Mixer23 said:

December 8th, 1:43 pm

Yep. More Abby, please! :D

On topic, I’m in for the soundbar as soon as the Holidays are over and possibly the pink DS3 if I cant find a FFXIII DS3 online somewhere.
