How to choose gaming equipment
Gaming starts with choosing your preferred platform, so your first choice should be between starting your journey with the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, or PC, or buying the new PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X.
The new consoles are more powerful than their predecessors, with developers to focus on making games for them in the immediate future, but the older consoles are still fine choices, especially if you are on a budget and want to try the games that have been released for the platforms. Each console has its own advantages, but one of the main factors that you should consider is their exclusive titles, such as God of War and The Last of Us Part II for the PlayStation 4, Gears 5 and Halo 5: Guardians for the Xbox One, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch. These are also the games that you’ll want to own, as they showcase the best of the consoles where they belong.
After settling on the console that you want to purchase, or if you want to expand your arsenal for your current console, you can look for accessories such as controllers and headsets. Extra controllers are required to fully enjoy games with local multiplayer modes, or as replacements for banged-up controllers after years of use, while headsets are important for communicating with teammates in online multiplayer matches. For PC gamers, you should also take a look at upgrading your monitor, so you can better enjoy your games’ visuals, and your mouse and keyboard, as the best and most reliable ones will not only help you win but will also make your rig look more stylish.
Lastly, a comfortable gaming chair is a must so that you won’t start experiencing aches and pains from playing video games too much — such as when you’re on the home stretch of a single-player game or having one of those late-night multiplayer parties with your friends online.
Are any gaming deals too good to be true?
When it comes to gaming deals, Cyber Week continues some of the best discounts on popular consoles, games, and accessories. Major sales events are usually the time retailers like to get rid of their old stock, so you’re likely to find deals on older games. This is not necessarily a bad thing, especially if you’re picking up a new console since you’ll need some games to build up your library. Just be sure to check the original price of the games and consoles you’re buying to be sure you are getting an actual deal.
