Gaming and traveling are two hobbies that can coexist with each other. It’s not that hard to keep them both while doing it at the same time.
With our current gaming technology growth, gaming on the go is achievable and doable for us gamers who like to play games whenever we go especially while traveling.
Gaming while traveling can’t defeat the satisfaction while gaming with the big screen like TV or monitor but the solution it provides is sufficient to satisfy the craving to play games.
As for me, there are two things I love the most; traveling and playing games. If I’m not traveling, most of my spare time will be spent by playing games either on consoles or PC.
However, while I’m traveling, I always have the itch to play games. And nope, playing games on a mobile phone is not enough for me hence this is my solution for how I gaming while traveling.
i) Nintendo Switch
A console that needs no introduction. Nintendo Switch manages to be among the top in the console industry by being the hybrid console that can be used as a home console and portable device. It manages to catch worldwide attention, especially among gamers with its unique features and fun game lineup.
Either its Nintendo Switch Lite or a standard Nintendo Switch, I will never miss to bring along my Nintendo Switch while going out to travel. With its size, it is really easy to bring this console whenever I go.
My favorite time to play Nintendo Switch while travel is when I have free time especially while onboard the aircraft or while taking taxis or buses. All I need to do to start playing games is just pop out from its travel case, switch it on and start playing.
With its library that keeps expanding each day, I will never run out of games to play.
ii) PS Vita (PS4 Remote Play)
Another favorite of mine is to bring along my PS Vita out to travel. Before I discover the potential of PS Vita to remote play PS4, I will sometimes bring my bulky PS4 just to play it on TV in the hotel that I’m staying in.
However, this proves to be inconvenient to bring along PS4 console since it’s really heavy and consume a lot of space. After that, I search for an alternative to play my PS4 while traveling and realize the best option to do so is by remote play PS4 using my PS Vita.
To do so, first, I need to buy a ‘special case’ to play most of the games in PS4. This case made PS Vita have an extra button for L2, L3, R2, and R3 to be almost like a controller for PS4. You could purchase this case at Aliexpress as it is cheap and ships worldwide.
After doing this step, all I have to do is to have a good internet connection to enable Remote Play PS4 from any part of the whole world. Most of the time I will spend time playing with it if I have spare time to spend during my stay while traveling.
And here you go, these two consoles are my all-time favorite method to play games while traveling. I know there are a lot of other ways that suit your needs. But as for now, these two consoles are all that I need as for now.
