Shopping for the gamer on your list
|Gamers come in all sizes, ages and skill levels.|
A PC gamer is one of the most difficult people to shop for. The task can seem even more daunting if you're not a gamer yourself.
By now, they more than likely have the best gaming accessories - high-performance sound system, keyboard, mouse, LCD monitor, graphics card and the most popular games on the market today. So where does that leave you as time winds down and the holiday approaches?
This holiday shopping season is the beginning of what is expected to be a substantial growth curve for the gaming industry. According to DFC Intelligence, a market research firm, the worldwide video game industry is expected to grow from about $33 billion in 2006 to as much as $47 billion in 2009.
"The gamers who are fueling this multi-billion dollar industry are serious about the equipment and accessories they use," said Ken Newman, Director of Marketing for Falcon Safety Products, manufacturer of the Dust-Off brand. "At Dust-Off, we recognized that fact and decided to develop the Keyboard Quiver. The Quiver is the first bag specifically designed to meet the needs of competitive gamers and to protect their sensitive and expensive gaming equipment while they're on the go."
Until now, PC gamers have had no real dedicated solution for taking their most trusted gear with them when heading off to a LAN event or competition. Designed specifically for active gamers, the Keyboard Quiver provides an added level of protection for the essential tools of the gaming trade, including a keyboard, mouse, headphones, cables, power cords and even MP3 players, and keeps the equipment safe and game-ready.
Measuring 21"x12"x6", the Quiver can fit a variety of keyboards and is manufactured from a heavy-duty cotton canvas. The bag can be fitted for left or right handed use featuring a single, over-the-shoulder strap. For added comfort the strap is padded, and to keep a gamer connected while on the move, the strap also features a pouch designed to hold a cell-phone or PDA.
The outside of the Keyboard Quiver features three main zippered compartments. The zippered pocket on top of the case can hold a MP3 player and also features a headphone slot. The upper compartment can hold a mouse or other personal effects and the bottom compartment is designed to hold a set of gaming headphones.
