Last night, we opined a bit on why PlayStation VR will position Sony to be a dominant force in the cord cutting market in the next year as companies like Hulu enter the live TV streaming game to compete with Sling TV and PlayStation Vue.
Here’s a few items on sale this week from around the web that should satisfy cord cutters and gamers alike:
Ever get tired of using a game controller to enter your password in Xbox One and PlayStation 4? iClever has a pretty handy solution with their wireless keyboard and trackpad remote. It’s only $13.99 today on Amazon. If you’re not the game console type, this is still a well-liked tool for cord cutters and people with a home theater PC.
Anyone who needs to renew their Xbox Live membership should snap up a 12-month month membership for only $39. Usually, this is priced at $59.99 and doesn’t go on sale all that often.
If you’re more of a PlayStation-type, then Best Buy has a deal on a Playstation Plus 12-month membership for only $39.99. That saves you $10 from the regular price.
You might want to wait for the new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles that were announced this week at E3, or you might want to shop around and see what kind of bundles are on sale for the current models.
