Rentoza’s rAge Gaming Guide

on

It’s time for rAge Expo 2023, South Africa’s premier gaming event. 


If you’re making the trek to Gallagher Convention Centre, find us there! We’ll have some games to play, and more than a few prizes, too.


If you can’t make it to the show, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered with some great deals on gaming gear over the duration of the expo. 


We’re nice like that.

PlayStation VR 2

Sony’s original virtual reality headset was a revelation when it first released, offering a (relatively) budget-friendly entrypoint for gamers keen to explore virtual worlds from a new perspective. But it also had some pretty big caveats to hit its price point, including just OK fidelity, and a reliance on the ancient PlayStation move controllers – themselves first released all the way back in 2010.


In that context, PSVR 2 (as the cool kids call it) is a quantum leap forward. It’s got dedicated controllers, and improvements to the screen’s fidelity and refresh rate means the potential for motion sickness is drastically reduced.


Sure, you need a PlayStation 5 to use it, but you wanted one of those already, didn’t you?

Oculus Quest 2 128GB

… Or maybe you don’t want a console, and just want something dedicated to VR.


The Oculus Quest 2 is essentially a standalone VR console. No wires, no computer to plug into – everything you need is built right into the headset. Room-scale VR is here. It’s pretty amazing that the Quest 2 still manages to be comfortable, but it does.


On top of that, you get access to the vast Oculus games library, easily the most comprehensive VR gaming catalogue currently available.

Valve Steam Deck 256GB

Is this the ultimate on-the-go gaming machine? There’s definitely an argument for that. 


Valve’s Steam Deck packs PC-grade gaming into a pick-up-and-go form factor, giving you access to your full Steam library – as well as third party libraries, like Xbox – while you’re on the move. It won plaudits for its screen, and its power. You can play everything from Elden Ring to Forza Motorsport on it.


What else do you need?

Sony Pulse 3D Headset and PlayStation Media Remote

The really cool thing about gaming consoles nowadays is that they’re not just gaming consoles. They’re a full-on multimedia experience. So it’s useful to have a few little tools to help with that.


First, we’ve got the Sony Pulse 3D headset. Not only is this a handy way to watch streaming shows without disturbing any potential housemates, it’s specially optimised for gaming. Its 3D audio smarts mean you can always tell where you are – and more importantly, where enemies are – in the gaming world.


Then there’s the PlayStation Media Remote, because controllers are terrible for browsing Netflix. This discreet little partner makes it easy to navigate the ins and outs of the PlayStation interface, making your console even more viable as an entertainment device.

Nintendo Switch

Well, 132 million people can’t be wrong. Nintendo’s bright little console that could perfectly bridges big-TV, on-the-couch gaming with the world of handheld gaming. 


The Switch might not be the most powerful console in existence (it’s not even in the conversation, really), but it more than makes up for it with its library: Mario, Zelda, Bayonetta, Splatoon; not to mention a buffet of indie darlings. With a Nintendo Online subscription, you can even try your hand at some real OGs, like the original Donkey Kong and Mario Bros.

Xbox Elite Series 2 and PlayStation 5 DualSense Edge

Need a little extra precision, a little extra control when making that crucial shot? We’ve got you: The Xbox Elite Series 2 and PlayStation 5 DualSense Edge controllers are the cream of the peripheral crop.


The Xbox Elite Series is the original premium first-party controller, featuring buttons, sticks, and back paddles, as well as full remapping (to take advantage of those back paddles). The DualSense Edge, meanwhile, upgrades Sony’s already excellent controller with its own back buttons and remapple optioning, while retaining such crowd-pleasing features as its dynamic triggers and pinpoint haptic feedback. 


Whichever you choose, you’ll know you’re the one in control.

Give in to the rAge

So, what’s your ideal gaming setup? VR? Console and VR? Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo (or Valve)?


If you’re not sure, come down to our stand at rAge to chat to our salespeople – they’ll help you decide, and guide you through the subscription process. You can even get a game in!


If you’re not going to make it (or can’t), then just subscribe anyway. The beauty of a Rentoza subscription is that you can upgrade, downgrade, or change your subscription whenever you want. No extra charges or penalties.


Commitment is messy. Just Rentoza it.
