Video Games: The Basics

This category doesn’t include just the deals on games themselves; the resident deal experts here at DealNews are always on the hunt for a good deal on consoles and accessories, as well.  We’ve compiled a list of advice and resources to help you dive into the world of gaming:

Consoles vs. PC Gaming

First, you have to decide just where you want to spend your gaming hours. One of the biggest debates among gamers often comes back to whether consoles or gaming computers are the superior choice.

Your answer depends on many different factors, including price, comfort, available titles, and more.  For instance, gaming PCs often will pack a better graphical punch and offer smoother game performance —  but at the cost of a heftier price tag. One also should consider whether a keyboard and mouse setup or a controller offers you a more comfortable and enjoyable experience. It’s also worth considering the types of games you’re interested in, as well as any specific franchises, since many titles are console-exclusive . If Mario Kart is your jam, then you probably shouldn’t be looking at a PlayStation or Xbox console.

Ultimately, your gaming platform choice comes down to personal taste, and what you can reasonably manage financially (no matter what passionate fans on the internet might insist). But no matter what your choice, you can often score cheap video game deals right here at DealNews.com.

Gaming Desktops vs. Laptops

How much space do you have to dedicate to gaming? If you have a permanent desk or home office set up, then a desktop might be the way to go. But if portability and/or travel is a concern, then you may lean towards a laptop . Keep in mind that desktop PCs will often come with better specs, such as more RAM, better audio, and more heavy-duty graphics cards.
