One of the questions we get asked most here at JBGaming is ‘how can I get a gaming PC for console prices?’ The short answer is, you can’t. That’s also the long answer, too. It’s impossible to get even a slightly decent desktop PC for console money, let alone a machine that can run Skyrim in 4K.
The fact of the matter is, you get what you pay for when it comes to PC gaming. To get a half decent PC that will run games such as PUBG, Overwatch & GTA, you’re going to have to pay half decent money.
The Vibox Sharpshooter Package is the perfect place to start if you’re looking for an introductory gaming PC. It is designed with upgrades in mind, but comes fully stocked with a lightening fast 4.0GHz AMD FX 4-Core CPU, a powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 2GB Graphics Card & 8GBs 1600MHz High Speed RAM. That’s enough to wet the lips of even the most experienced PC gamer.
The machine is powerful enough to run almost all high end games, and the package even includes a free 22″ HD Monitor, a headset & a gaming keyboard & mouse. That’s everything you need to start playing as soon as your PC arrives. You can get all of this, including a Lifetime Warranty & 2 Years Parts Replacement for just £569.95.
With PC gaming becoming more & more popular due to eSports & games such as PUBG, this is the perfect deal for anyone looking to get their hands on an affordable, yet powerful gaming system.

Have you heard about the latest No Man’s Sky Update?
It looks like Hello Games are finally taking steps to making No Man’s Sky the game we were originally promised in 2016. The release of the game in August of last year was met with fury as fans felt cheated by developers Hello Games. Fans claim they lied about the multiplayer, they lied about the story mode, they lied about the diverse planets, and when fans asked for updates, Hello Games stayed silent for months.
So, why should we bother even writing an article about a game that enraged so many gamers? Well, let’s be fair. Hello Games could quite easily have taken the $78 million of No Man’s Sky money and headed for retirement. But they didn’t. They have listened to fan feedback and have continued to update the game. Now, almost a year since its original release, No Man’s Sky is looking like the game we all hoped it would.
The new 1.3 update adds a brand new 30 hour story campaign, procedurally generated missions and a multiplayer that shows other players as orbs. Although this isn’t the multiplayer we were expecting, it’s a productive step towards fully fledged co-op in No Man’s Sky. You can also now communicate with other players when in close enough proximity.
The games brand new story mode adds 30 hours of gameplay, double the lore of the original game and thousands of new interactions. Hello Games teased fans about the new story mode, saying “Discover the truth behind the Abandoned Building logs, the World of Glass, the Sentinels, the Redemption of the Gek, and the Meaning of the 16…”

If co-president of the Paris Olympic bid committee Tony Estanguet of to be believed, it could be, and it could happen as soon as 2024. Estanguet told the Associated Press “we have to look at it because we can’t say, ‘it’s not us. It’s not about Olympics.'””The youth, yes they are interested in eSports and this kind of thing. Yes let’s look at it. Let’s meet them. Let’s see if we can find some bridges. I don’t want to say no from the beginning. I think it’s interesting to interact with the eSports family, to better understand what the process is and why it is such a success.”
The official list of sports I included in the Paris Olympics will be announced after the 2020 games in Tokyo. The organisers of the Asian Games have already announced that eSports will have ‘full medal status’ at the 2022 games in Hangzhou China.
Critics and purists claim that eSports aren’t a show of any physical strength or skill, and therefore can’t be included in the Olympics. Well, I’d love to see the ‘critics and purists’ clutch a 5 v 1 on dust 2, fuckin scrubs.
