I’m not going to lie, for a long time I was an Xbox fan boy and only played on the Xbox… but since the PS4’s release I can honestly say that Playstation is KILLING Xbox with some of the most AMAZING exclusive games that even PC gamers are jealous of.
Whether it’s Day’s Gone, one of the COOLEST zombie games I’ve seen in a while or Horizon: Zero Dawn, the list of killer games is incredible.
Let’s face it PS4 is even getting PC ports like Killing Floor and The Forest are now available on PS4, this is a pure example of killing the Xbox that has less than 5 exclusive titles confirmed for this year :O.
So I felt like it was time to show you my PS4 gaming setup that’s probably one of the best investments an avid console gamer can make!
Why I think ever gamer needs an awesome game setup?
It’s your work place.
I game to compete, I love winning and I buy things that will allow me to have ever advantage I can have.
I also love single players and I want to emmerse myself into a game and feel as if I’m there.
Finally, I like my room too look clean, minimalistic and like something out of the future.
Mix all this together and you get the ps4 setup I’m about to show you. It will improve your skills, get you to immerse, make your gaming room look incredible and have you feel comfort and control while gaming.
You’re probably losing your mind with excitement right now, so I think it’s time to show you what I’m talking about.
Then remember after you get an awesome PlayStation setup you’ll need some awesome games and if you like zombies like me, then you should check out this list of the greatest zombie games ever made.
You have to start off with the base, which is, of course, a fabulous PS4 console.
I’ve been through the whole internet (at-least most of it) and I found the cheapest place to get a PS4 which happens to be here.
The PS4 is what you’ll need to start everything off, but you have options.
If you go for a 4k display then you need the PS4 pro (find best price), because that thing looks beautiful, seriously beautiful.
However, if you’re rocking a normal full HD display, then sit back down and get the PS4 I mentioned above, it’ll be perfect and you’ll save 100 + bucks.
As a side note you can learn how to get games at 50% off for PS4 using my cheap game finder cheap games.
No EPIC gaming setup is complete without a CRAZY (look at me I’m awesome) gaming chair.
Let’s face it the X Rocker is exactly that.
This beefy gaming chair comes with two 2.1 speakers and a subwoofer for a total sound immersion experience and one hell of a comfy design great for all-night gaming sessions.
Look, if you’re addicted to gaming like me, you need to have pure comfort (that’s a fact) and long gaming sessions can run into the 5-hour mark (with a few toilet brakes, or bottle breaks if you can’t bear to stand to use the toilet) and if you’re on a floor, a hard chair, even an office chair, your butt, legs, feet and back feel the pain.
That’s why this chair really does do the job, it relaxes me, gets me into the zone and allows me to stay in place and enjoy the game well into the 5-hour mark.
This awesomeness does come at a price, but if you check out the DISCOUNT with found for X-Rocker you can get it for just $144 which is an unreal value (a saving of 100 bucks)
I’m a music man, I listen to music for at least 7 hours a day.
I’ve tried some of the BEST headsets in the industry, even ones costing over $400 and in all truth, these HyperX headphones, are some of the best I’ve used.
They knock the crap out of my turtle beach and they put dr Dre beats to shame and at the $50 price tag with features such as:
- Comfort for long gaming sessions
- Clear microphone
- Compatibility with all consoles (PS4, Xbox, PC and Wii)
- With Frequency response of up to 23,000 Hz (hear everything around you).
You can’t go wrong.
Just saying them features doesn’t do enough, you need to understand what they mean.
You can speak without sounding like you’re under a waterful.
you can play video games for hours without having the feeling that your ears have started to mold to the shape of the headset you wear.
You can hear people all around you and where the sound is coming from.
Instead of being like ‘I think someone’s behind me’, you can hear them behind you (game changer).
Finally, you can use them to listen to music on any device (super important), so it’s not just a gaming investment, it’s a sound investment for movies, music and gaming.
