Livestream video game shows.

What is a video game showcase?

June is a big month on the video game calendar, as this is when some of gaming’s biggest names announce new games, hardware and more. Video game events such as Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase and Summer Game Fest deliver a variety of entertaining content for gaming enthusiasts. Depending on which shows you livestream, you can learn about updates on Xbox games, new details about PlayStation titles, information about Nintendo releases and more. Best Buy hosts livestreams of these and other events, so you can stay current on the latest video game announcements from the comfort of your own home.

How to livestream your favorite gaming events.

If you’re eager to watch a video game showcase, be sure to set yourself up for a successful livestream. As previously stated, you can stream these events online on Best Buy’s website, but you may want to prepare a few things at home. For uninterrupted streaming, a strong internet connection is essential. You’ll want to ensure that you have a dependable modem and router for wireless internet access. Once you’re connected, you can livestream these events from your computer or tablet. If you want to view one of these events on the big screen, you can find USB cables and adapters so you can connect your smaller devices to a larger monitor or television.

You may even be interested in delivering your own livestream after the video game show to provide your own personal commentary. If you plan on streaming, you may want to invest in a gaming headset, ergonomic chair, or other gaming accessories. No matter how you decide to stream, you’re bound to have a blast tuning in to these digital celebrations of video games.
