MUST PLAY OF THE WEEK

Huawei MateView GT

This is normally the part where we review the biggest and/or best game to get this week, but we're veering off course ever so slightly, as we've been test driving Huawei's latest gaming focused screen.

The 34-inch curved display might take some getting used to for those who are used to their TV screens being flat, but once you properly give into the sense of immersiveness that it gives, you'll likely not want to go back to the old way.

Propped up on a solid black stand with its own built-in sound-bar (which gives off a very cool multi-coloured light display), the high-end visual and sound specs are incredible impressive.

We tested both Elden Ring and Ghostwire: Tokyo out on this, and they both looked and sounded fantastic on the Mateview. If you spend a lot of hours gaming and want to spoil yourself with a screen that is designed to bring out the best in your games, then this is the one for you.
