The technology industry loves to start the year with a bang and 2019 is no different. CES 2019 is currently taking place in Las Vegas, and tech companies big and small are showing off the latest and (relatively) greatest wares. It’s easy to get a bit lost in all the announcements and news, especially if you’re trying to stay on top of what’s relevant to gaming, as opposed to the next generation of smart TVs, refrigerators, and AI vacuum cleaners.
For that reason, we assembled a panel of experts to cut through the chaos and bring you the information you need to know. In the video above GameSpot’s Peter Brown, Lucy James, and Michael Higham are joined by CNET’s Jeff Bakalar to talk through what’s new at CES and what it means for the video game industry.
As you can imagine, a lot of the discussion is focused on new graphics cards which, this year, seem to be striking a better balance between power and affordability. One such card is the Nvidia RTX 2060, which is said to be on par with or better than the GTX 1070 Ti and is generally quite affordable, starting at $350 in the US. The panel also discusses Razer’s Turret, which is the first official mouse and keyboard for the Xbox One, and Viveport Infinity, a new subscription service that gives HTC Vive owners access to a library of VR games. You can see the chat around all that and more above.
