Calling All Gamers! Guide to Where and How to Buy Popular Gaming Consoles. PS5, ASUS ROG Ally, Steam Deck, and Backbone One!

If you love gaming and you’re a gamer, then these popular gaming consoles should be familiar to you!

Have you heard about the new Steam Deck? Last year, Valve announced the new arrival of Steam Deck, which is going to shake up the global gaming industry~ It’s a new handheld device for gaming where you’re able to access your whole Steam library as soon as logging into your account, enabling a smooth and easy download of games! It can be connected to monitors and gaming accessories such as a keyboard or controller for a better gaming experience. However, it isn’t easy to order due to high demand – Valve made the device available to order via a reservation system now – with an estimated delivery time of 2 weeks. 

Similarly, the new PlayStation 5 console has lightning-fast loading compared to previous versions with high-speed SSD, more resounding support for adaptive triggers, and 3D audio~ perfect for all your brand-new PlayStation games! It also supports connectivity to a 4K TV so that you can play your favorite PS5 games with the best experience at home!

Backbone One is a compact controller to turn your phone into a gaming device. It features a collapsible and compact design that turns your phone into a gaming console anywhere, anytime! How convenient is that! Simply snap in your phone to the device and play any game that supports controllers, such as games from Xbox. You can even stream directly from PlayStation and PC without any waiting! Some users have said that the Backbone One feels like Switch but it is more comfortable in the hands! The best part is that it allows you to “plug and play” without Bluetooth connectivity, so it doesn’t eat up your phone battery!

Asus ROG Ally Gaming Console is the ultimate portable gaming experience. With its powerful AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor and 16GB of RAM, the ROG Ally can handle even the most demanding games with ease~ it is even rumored to be more powerful than Valve’s Steam Deck! The ROG Ally is also packed with features that make it the perfect gaming companion. The included AirTrigger ultrasonic touch sensors let you control your games with gestures, and the backlit keyboard makes it easy to type even in low-light conditions. The ROG Ally also has a built-in kickstand so you can prop it up for comfortable gaming, and a long-lasting battery that can keep you playing for hours on end.

We know you must be hyped about all these new gaming consoles – but the sad news is, some of them aren’t that easy to buy due to the high demand. Consoles like PS5 are seen being resold from resellers for higher prices. In this guide, we have summed up how and where to order each of these gaming devices mentioned above, and you’re able to use Buyandship’s warehouses overseas for quick and efficient shipping to your home. Sit tight and your new gaming console is arriving in no time – happy shopping!
