How Much Does All This Cost?
Ninja is loaded from his exploits online and, because of his god-like status amongst gamers, tech companies fall over backwards to get him to use their latest products.
Like any online influencer, Ninja gets sent loads of free tech. And he’s talked about this plenty of times. But he also stated that, most of the time, he tends to buy all his own gear, as he likes to stay on top of the latest trends.
So how much would it cost to build a streaming setup like Ninja? If you crunch the numbers, based on what’s listed above, you’re looking at about $50,000 to build a gaming setup similar to Ninja’s.
That’s a lot of coin. But if you’re just getting started, you really do not need to be spending that much money on your Twitch streaming setup.
Like Ninja did back in 2011, just start small, use what you can afford, and scale up as your followers grow. Who knows? By 2030, we could be writing an article about your gaming setup…
