Video gaming gets better year after year. The whole experience keeps improving. Some changes have a minimal effect on our lives especially if the changes are incremental—like when a few new tracks and cars are added to a racing game. Other changes can affect us very personally; for example, we may see social media light up with disagreements about a new storyline or a divisive new character. And then there are the rarest of years, like this year 2020. Many of us are spending a lot more time at home, and therefore the games are more important to our lives than ever before. Because it’s the games, new ones and improved ones, that captivate our senses and make this year memorable for the right reasons. Which new releases are you the most excited about?

This year is monumental for gaming and at Best Buy we have even started a new event called “Play at Best Buy.” Easily stay informed in two ways: on the blog and on the Play at Best Buy section on our website where you will find gaming news and gaming deals all summer long. Games and gaming technology are all undergoing such a rapid change—akin to an evolutionary explosion. Let’s explore some of those changes as I introduce an amazing selection of gaming prizes, worth over $10000, that will convince you that this is a dream year for gamers.

Sony has added exciting gaming enhancements to their premium televisions

This year saw television manufacturers step up their game with amazing new technologies added to big screen televisions. For example, Sony has their vibrant and responsive TRILUMINOS Display paired with the new Game Mode so the screen can better handle the demands of a video game.  Before you buy your next television you really should read our rundown of the newest features in Premium Televisions that improve your entire gaming experience.

Prize package #1 includes an amazing Sony 55″ 4K HDR TV so you can have that experience in your home. To make this package even better, Sony has provided their new, HT-G700 Dolby Atmos® sound bar with Wireless Subwoofer. Gaming developers put as much time and energy into the development of the soundtracks, voices, dialogue, and audio effects as they do the visual elements of the game. You deserve the best audio and this Sony sound bar will not disappoint!

Console technology is all everyone will be talking about later this year

Did you hear that new PlayStation and Xbox consoles are on the horizon later this year? No one will get their hands on one until near the end of the year. Along with the new consoles will be lots of new games. We can’t give those away yet (since they have not been released) but we have several prize packages of current consoles to get you playing more than ever as you await the new arrivals. As you can see here, the Nintendo Prize package includes the two hottest consoles available right now: a Switch and a Switch Lite. Both will go to one very lucky person!

Gaming feels even more real when done in virtual reality

It’s easy to lose yourself in a game. The real world around you disappears; time becomes meaningless outside of the game. Using a bigger screen makes it more immersive. Closing out the audio with a great headset can also do that. However, virtual reality takes this to a new level. Put on the newest Oculus Quest VR Headset and you are IN the game.  It’s a whole body experience like no other. And the Oculus system is a console and controller and headset and display—all in one! So this gaming package has one amazing item: the Oculus Quest 128GB VR Headset, worth almost $700.
