    PS5, Oculus quest 2, next-gen Xbox – what should you buy?

    The choice on which console to buy has never been harder. While the PS 5 has hogged much of the spotlight, it is easy to forget that the X-Box Next-Gen and the Oculus Quest 2 are also set for release this year.

    Of the two, Oculus Quest is perhaps one that provides a rather different feel about it. It is a VR gaming device, which will likely be different from any other gaming experience.

    Indeed, the Oculus Quest 2 will immerse you right into the centre of the action, whether the game is action or more strategic games like puzzles and casinos. I know, we all miss gathering for a round of Russian Roulette. But with the Oculus Quest 2, your frantic action games such as Immortal, puzzling puzzles and the best Kenyan online casinos ensure that you don’t miss the outside with their compelling virtual experience. By creating a virtual space for yourself, you can run away from the restrictions related to the pandemic and play your favorite games at any time. Also, all those games are fully legal in Kenya – which is very important too.

    With each of these gaming devices, you will get varied experiences, with each bringing a unique experience to the field.

    So, which one should you buy?

    Well, let’s look at the specs of each and what they bring to the table

However, only the standard PS 5 will have a 4K UHD Blu-ray Optical Disc Drive.

    A major advantage of these is that they will be compatible with almost all PS 4 games. Additionally, you will get exclusive titles such as Spider Man: Miles Morales, Horizon II: Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7.

    XBox Next-Gen

    Known as Xbox Series X, this Microsoft console is set for release two days before Sony’s PS 5, on 10 November, 2020. The Xbox will have a starting price of $500.

    Oculus Quest 2

    This VR was developed by Facebook and is set to hit the shelves close to a month before the others – October 13th.

    An update to the 2019 Oculus Quest, the OcQ 2 packs a 6GB RAM, updated from 4Gb in the first Oculus Quest. It also packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 chipset, allowing for greater experiences with better resolutions and refresh rate.

    So, which should you buy?

    If you are looking for the comfort of the familiar, then the Xbox and PS 5 will definitely be enough. Indeed, coming down to each individual console will definitely be upon you as an individual. This is made especially by the fact that each of them is capable of playing games for the previous console. Thus, you won’t need to buy many new titles if you own the previous console.

    However, if you are looking for a device that will give you a unique, immersive experience, then the Oculus Quest 2 VR is where it’s at.

    However, the OcQ 2 needs you to link to your Facebook account.
