Chapter 2. The Ultimate Gamer > HOW TO BECOME THE ULTIMATE GAMER

HOW TO BECOME THE ULTIMATE GAMER

Playing games is serious business, and to be the ultimate gamer you're going to need some serious equipment. Today's top gamers have a ton of hardware at their disposal, including multiple video game consoles, a couple of handheld systems, and a powerful gaming PC—as well as all the necessary peripherals, game controllers, and gadgets. You'll spend a lot of cash on hardware alone before you start busting your budget with the games themselves, so you might think about getting a paper route or something to bolster your on-hand cash.

Choosing the Best Video Game System(s)

Serious gamers don't limit themselves to a single gaming system. Great games are available for all the major video game systems, and since it's the games that drive things, you need to be prepared to play any new game that comes along. This means investing in all the current game consoles—Sony's market-leading PlayStation 2, Microsoft's Xbox, and Nintendo's GameCube. Yeah, it's a pain to have all of these systems hooked up to your TV, but that's the price you pay.
