RealSport is here to breakdown the best tech and gaming gifts available this Christmas.


When it comes to gaming headsets there are plenty to choose from. Here are some of the best headphones we’ve tried out.

SteelSeries Arctis 7

SteelSeries has excelled in their execution of the Arctis 7 Wireless. The price may be a little high, but it’s very much a case of getting what you pay for.

STAY ALERT: Surround sound and onboard S1 speakers means you’ll never miss enemy footsteps

With top of the line comfort and sound performance, if you are in the market for a wireless headset this winter, SteelSeries are a great option.

Gioteck TX-50

Premium comfort, premium finish, good audio. If you are gaming on a budget, this is the perfect headset for you.

WHAT HEADPHONES? Lightweight materials combined with Alacantra padding make you forget you are wearing anything

The only slight issue is the portability of the headset (due to the lack of a foldable design), but the comfort and price of the headset make up for it.

Sennheiser GSP 370

EASY ADJUSTMENT: The infinity volume wheel allows for simple audio alteration

A high-quality headset without the bulk of some of its rivals. If you want to shed the weight of a headset without sacrificing quality, this is the one for you.

Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Aero

This headset is superb – the design is simple and while a big headset it does fold for added portability.

ULTIMATE IMMERSION: the 3D audio immersion system really drops you into the game

At £129.99 they’re not cheap, but if you like joining up with a squad to dominate Fortnite, take down opponents on Call of Duty, or just want to truly dive into the world of your favourite RPG then the Elite Atlas Aero is the one for you.

Turtle Beach Battle Buds (In-Ear)

The in-ear gaming headset is built to battle on any platform – and plugs easily into your controller.

MARATHON: Turtle Beach claims you can play for hours with the Battle Buds and it’ll stave off fatigue

A great, well-priced headset that’ll win fans over because of its light-weight design and comfort. They make a fantastic companion for the Nintendo Switch.


There are a load of great controllers on the market so whether you’re a casual or serious gamer, there’s one to fit your needs.

PLAY YOUR WAY: You can also save up to three custom profiles and one default profile on the controller and switch between them easily with the Profile button

Adjustable-tension thumbsticks, shorter hair trigger locks and wrap-around rubberised grip are just some of the amazing features that helps the Elite controller enhance your gameplay.

Gioteck VX4 Wireless (PS4 & PC)

CUSTOM COLOUR: The VX4 also comes in silver, blue and red 

Gioteck’s VX4 controller is a good piece of kit for its price. This controller is perfect for a casual gamer or a player who is looking to buy/replace an affordable, secondary controller for offline multiplayer gaming.

Gioteck WX4 Wireless (Nintendo Switch)

 The Gioteck WX4 for Nintendo Switch is the perfect ‘pro controller’ for owners of Nintendo’s latest console.

BARGAIN BUY: the Gioteck WX4 retails at half the price of the pro controller, at £24.99

Not only can you get it for an incredibly reasonable price, but it outperforms the stock Switch controls by a long-shot in terms of extended gaming.

These little guys make the perfect Christmas gift for any gamers. They make up an inventive controller holder, which you can use to dock your controllers whilst they’re charging. We tried out the Miles Morales Spiderman and Ezio (Assassin’s Creed) Cable guys, but there’s a ton of popular characters to choose from!

FIFA 21: No demo for upcoming game, EA Sports confirm




The company says it will instead focus on perfecting the latest iteration of the series ahead of release

EA Sports has announced that the company will not be releasing a demo for FIFA 21.

FIFA 21 is set to be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Friday, October 9, having being pushed back from its usual September release date due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition, the game will also be eventually released on the upcoming Sony PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, making this year’s release one of the most important in recent years.

Typically, EA Sports release a demo for each year’s game around three weeks before the official release, allowing players to test out the gameplay in one-off matches featuring some of the game’s top teams.

The demo is then typically followed by an early access period for those that are EA Play members, offering players a chance to play the full game for a limited time before release.

However, EA confirmed on Monday that this year’s game will not have a demo, with the company instead focusing on making sure the full game is prepared for its October 9 release date.

“We aren’t releasing a demo for FIFA 21. Instead we’ve made the decision to focus our development team’s time on delivering the best full game experience for current & next-gen consoles,” EA said in a statement.

“We look forward to EA PLAY members jumping in 10 days from now and launching the game Oct 9.”

In recent weeks, EA has begun to unveil the list of the highest-rated players in the game, with Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski earning the top three places on this year’s rankings on the men’s side with U.S. women’s national team star Megan Rapinoe leading the way for the women.

This year’s game will feature improvements to career mode, new attacking systems such as Agile Dribbling, Positioning Personality and Creative Runs and improvements to the highly-popular Ultimate Team mode including FUT Co-Op gameplay and increased club customisation options.

Additionally, the game will feature a series of new icons: Eric Cantona, Ferenc Puskas, Xavi, Nemanja Vidic, Petr Cech, Samuel Eto’o, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Phillip Lahm, Fernando Torres, Ashley Cole and Davor Suker.

Editing HTML Like A Boss In VS Code




Here’s a seven minute video from Caleb Porzio that focuses on some of Emmet‘s HTML editing features. You might think of Emmet as that thing that expands abbreviations like table.stats>tr*3>td*3 into glorious, expanded, and perfect HTML. But Emmet has other HTML editing trickery up its sleeve. My favorite is “wrap with abbreviation” (which happens to be Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + A on CodePen), but there are more, like expanding your selection inward and outward and tag changing.

If you haven’t seen it, the Emmet 2 preview on CodePen is pretty neeeeat. It shows you what you’re about to expand into before you do it:
