Gaming: Serious Business
Whether you play PC-based video games, console games, handheld games, or a combination of all three, there’s one thing we can all agree on: we love games. Future Shop is home to all the latest game titles, bundles, and even game pre-orders for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC, PSP, PSVita, Nintendo DS and 3DS units and more. No matter which platform you play, you can always get the latest titles first at Future Shop. Let’s take a look at the different kind of gaming systems and setups available.
Console gaming refers to playing video games with a console that connects to your television. The current heavy hitters are the Xbox 360, Sony’s PS3 (PlayStation 3), and the Nintendo Wii. Each of these gaming systems has their strengths and huge library of game titles to choose from.
Preferred by video game purists, PC gaming are games that you play on your home computer. For playing online, PCs have more game titles. And if you want to upgrade your system to play the latest titles that require more resources, you can – without having to replace the whole computer. (Be sure to check your system specs against the game’s requirements before purchasing.)
The realm of playing portable games has grown immensely in recent years, thanks to cool handheld systems like the Nintendo DS, the Sony PSP – and more recently – the Nintendo 3DS and PSVita. These portable gaming systems take everything you love about a full console experience, shrink it in size, and put it in the palm of your hand to enjoy anywhere.
