One thing that divides the two ranges is access to exclusive games. The Xbox offers long-running franchises such as Halo, Gears of War and Forza Motorsport, plus this year’s Sea of Thieves. The PlayStation has God of War, Gran Turismo, The Last Guardian, Street Fighter 5 and this year’s classic, Spider-Man. You can tell Sony has been edging it on exclusives because this year Microsoft bought another seven games studios.
Making your home theater into a gaming haven is not going to require much work. All you have to do is connect the gaming platform you select to the screen or projector and you can start gaming. Keeping in mind you have a screen and a decent sound system already in place. So kick your gaming experience up a notch by having your home theater serve as both a theater and a gaming room.
This may look like a 1990’s computer setup but don’t let the looks fool you. Because even with the old CD spindle case beside it, inside is actually a modern processor-- a Ryzen one at that! As well as a powerful GTX 1060 graphics card that can handle AAA games at 1080p resolution. How old looks meet the modern performance is what earned its place as one of the best gaming setups in 2019.
Secondly, you’ll need to use software to write the image to your DVD or USB drive. For DVDs, Imgburn is available for Windows, and in-built tools exist in Mac operating systems, as well as most Linux operating systems. For USB drives, you can download the Microsoft USB Tool to put Windows onto a memory stick. For SteamOS, simply extract the SteamOS .zip file to your USB drive.
And yes, consoles have a much better gaming library compared to PC. PC gamers have a massive ego. So naturally they try to bend the truth as much as they can to make PC gaming seem amazing. PC gaming has a vast library, it's true. But it mostly consists of cheap indie games, sidescrollers, and mmorpgs. When it comes to REAL AAA Games. They lack even worse than Nintendo, compared to Xbox and PlayStation. You know what they say, quality over quantity. One thing PC needs to realize more than anyone.

Wow, developers care more about mobile then you, also in your eyes we might be demanding, but if your referring to us wanting to play our games how we want to and not let any company screw us over then I guess we are demanding. I noticed that after I switched from Xbox to pc I had more fun gaming, the people were nicer generally and people are more willing to help new players.
There are quite a few different gaming accessories we’ll recommend. But first, is there such thing as too many programmable keys? Perhaps for some, others no. This here is one of our favorite gaming accessories since we’re huge fans of increased game flow. The G13 by Logitech give us one need — buttons. You have 25 fully programmable G-keys to configure up to 75 functions (three different modes) using three macros per key. If you’re in LUA scripts you can also do so on the fly. There’s also a nice little LCD to give you data (real-time stats, information of your system, VoIP communication, as well as timers).

For another entry in the "made to be seen" column for this build, we went for two 4GB sticks of GeIL Super Luce RGB Sync DDR4 memory. For years, RAM had been a relatively low-cost part of PC builds, but RAM prices have spiked in 2018 and have yet to come back down. That said, $79 for 8GB is a pretty good deal, and the RGB strips add yet more pizzazz to proceedings.

When gamers want to game they want only the best. The best titles, the best specs, the best graphics, the best internet speed. Gamers always want more from game and console developers. Gamers always want to have the best gaming setup, so we're here to help. We are going to cover everything you need to create the ultimate gaming setup for you from consoles to computers, mice to monitors. Since we've already gone through how to build your own PC, lets start with console gaming and how to make the most of it.


It is a battle as old as time itself, which console is better? Everyone has their favourite, just like in the Apple V Android debate. There are many different reasons to like each side. Each have exclusive titles to the platform, different features, and different specs. Some stick with one system over another out of loyalty while others heavily weigh the options on both consoles. Lets compare the specs to see what the real difference is. If you aren't interested in the nitty gritty, tech heavy details, then you might want to skip this bit. With the latest release of the Xbox One X, both platforms are almost neck and neck in technical specifications as shown below.
What makes this one a pick for the best gaming gear however, is the keyboards full-key matrix anti-ghosting mechanism that is perfect for enhancing your accuracy and making sure you’re safe of sticky-keys. Not only does this keyboard look great on your PC or laptop, but its light-weight and can be durable for as long as you need it to be. Sometimes it’s the little things that can thoroughly improve your game, so let the Corsair Vengeance K70 do it all, and get it for quite the reasonable price since it’s a bit cheaper than our previous Razer pick if you wanted to save some cash.
Sony has made some rather interesting moves to enable backward compatibility, such as letting you stream PlayStation 3 to your PlayStation 4 (or, shockingly, to a PC!) via PlayStation Now for $19.99 per month. I signed up to stream PlayStation 3 games to my gaming PC, and found the entire experience unworthy, with lag and artificating being the major issues.
As with the RAM, we made a concession on the storage to afford the GTX 1070. The quality of the storage is actually high—we purchased a speedy 500GB Crucial MX500 solid-state drive (SSD). There's no accompanying larger hard drive, however, so 500GB will have to do for all your games and files. Yes, that will fill up relatively quickly given the large install sizes of modern games, so you'll have to keep only your favorites or current titles installed at any given time. If you often butt up against the capacity, though, you can always add more storage. The case has plenty of room for more drives, including a few larger 3.5-inch hard drives.
PCs are always on the cutting edge of gaming technology. The current generation of consoles with high-definition capabilities briefly narrowed the gap, but well-equipped PCs continue to offer superior graphics. High-resolution computer monitors and the latest multicore processors and dual GPU solutions make it possible to build a remarkably powerful gaming system. Even if a console offers incredible technology upon its release, there is no way for it to compete with the rapid hardware advancements that have become a way of life in the computer industry.
Some high-end enthusiasts may insist on a Core i7, but you truly don't need one for gaming, as most games don't stress the Hyper-Threading function that makes Core i7 models so appealing for other CPU-intensive tasks. Even a Core i3 would suffice for most builders, but since it's the heart of the system for gaming and also for everyday tasks, we figured we'd be grateful for the extra juice. Note that this isn't one of Intel's "K" series processors, meaning it is not unlocked for overclocking, which is fine; doing so is unnecessary most of the time for gaming. It also lets us save money on other components, such as the next one.

PC is killing the gaming community. They're egomaniacal self proclaimed Kings of nothing. The community is trash and toxic. They twist words and truths every little way they can to make PC gaming sound superior than console gaming. Steam sales, FPS, etc. They take one thing and build it up to make it seem godlike. When in reality, nothing PC has to offer is superior to consoles in any way. They just manipulate unsuspecting people that don't know any better into thinking it is. If gaming was a religion. PC gamers would be Lord's of hell. While console gamers would live in a heaven.
Additionally, the 'Prodigy' keyboard has over 16 million colours, which can be wrangled into personalised lighting "zones". Slim, comfy and durable - it repels liquids (up to 60ml), crumbs and other annoyances for easy clean-up and long life. As you would expect with gaming keyboards, it also comes with anti-ghosting functionality - meaning you can press ALL the buttons simultaneously without icky freezes. There are also handy in-built media buttons that allow you to control music and videos while in-game. As far as gaming keyboards go, this is definitely one worth nabbing - especially for only £34.99.
With the thermal paste applied, the brackets oriented and screwed in correctly, and the cooler attached, we went about the rest of the build with ease. Slotting in the graphics card is one of the simplest steps, despite its importance, and connecting cables is a somewhat tedious but straightforward process. (Consult your motherboard manual if need be.) The case was helpful for cable management, generally speaking, with an interesting hinged flap in the back, behind the right side panel, for hiding and holding the bulk of the cables in place. All told, we found enough hidey-holes and pass-throughs to tunnel most of the cables and stash around back before plugging everything in.
Get motion-sick? Gaming on the PC allows you to change your field of view, or FOV, potentially mitigating that issue. Personally I run all my PC games at an FOV around 100 degrees. Consoles, being played on a screen farther away, are usually around 60 degrees. That’s not an issue in itself. The bigger problem is that console games are typically locked to a certain FOV, meaning if it’s making you sick you can’t change it. (Disabling motion blur also falls in this category.)
After a trip to PC world, my nephew (who knows a lot more about computers than me) explained a few things to me and I was very surprised to see how much better this PC is compared to what the likes of PC world were offering. Almost double the power, more storage space, double the memory, for almost £150 less!!! You don't get the monitor like the PC World one but after checking online the screen they were offering with theirs cost only £60 on Amazon, so I could buy it separately and still save money!!!
One of the biggest advantages the PC has over consoles is that there are a lot more games available for the PC than there are for consoles, particularly when it comes to multiplayer online games. Not only are the vast majority of MMOGs designed for the PC, but PC gamers have the option to play MUDs, email games, browser games, and a wide variety of titles that are distributed digitally or available as free downloads.
