Christmas is just around the corner and you are probably wrapping the presents that in a couple of days someone will open under the tree.
If among the gifts you have planned is a new video game console, we have 2 things to tell you. The first is that you are someone great who will give a lot of happiness. The second is that we recommend that you do something before handing it in to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
Update consoles before giving them away
The first step we recommend is that you update the consoles. Yes, it is a process that involves opening and connecting them, so you may think that it is like releasing them.
However, the reality is that it is something highly recommended to do in these times for good reason: servers and online services are often saturated by smiles of people who are launching a console on the same date. Even Nintendo has already warned that this is very likely to happen to their online services this holiday season!
This means that, if you get saturated online services, the first morning of that console may go to download updates slowly. As a consequence, the person who receives it will not enjoy it as it deserves this Christmas.
Now, for this to be effective without losing the magic it is important that you hide the fact that you updated the console. For this we recommend that you be very careful when opening the console and closing it again. We also recommend that you delete any profile you have created so that the console is as good as new.
Not confident that you can do this right? Don’t worry so much: you can also download the update to a computer and install it via USB on consoles Xbox Y PlayStation. We leave you the instructions on how to do it in the previous links.
It is worth mentioning that the above can also apply for games. If you know that the person who will receive the gift is a big fan of Fortnite or a specific game, you can download it in advance so you don’t have to wait.
Think about the person who will receive the gift
This is a useful recommendation, but before following it we recommend that you think about the person who is going to receive the gift.
For example, if it is a small child, he will surely want to be playing as soon as possible. In that case, it would be highly recommended that you update the console and install the game since you will probably be frustrated by not being able to use it right away.
On the other hand, if you are going to give it to someone older or a true video game enthusiast, it is very likely that they want to be the first to open the console and that they like the experience of installing everything, even if it is a headache. In that case, you better leave the gift as is.
And you, did you know these recommendations? Will you follow them to ensure that Christmas is as happy a day as it deserves to be? Tell us in the comments.
