it would help if you posted WHAT you want to put it in.
your house? Motorhome? 5th wheel? travel trailer?

if a RV, what entertainment system does it have and what tv will you be playing on?

also, where do you plan to play it? campground, rv park, boondocking?
how will you access the internet, in order to play online?

I don't know how much data you use when playing games on the net but I use a MIFi JetPack from Verizon. My plan is for 30g of data and it's not cheap. Before you make a decision find how much data gaming uses and what it will cost. We full time and CG have terrible wifi so that's our main source for the net.

That is so true on both statements, found out from overhearing a conversation that a lot of parks have limiters of some sort to prevent larger draws from a user online IE:they cut you off. Gaming at RV parks online I have been told is almost impossible as you get bad lag. Never online gamed but I bet it's way more then the 30 gigs we pay for on our jet pack.

I have enough trouble just checking in on the forums while camping, I don't think I would try gaming. Many campgrounds just don't have enough bandwidth for people to stream movies. I would think they would have the same issue with gaming systems.

Interesting read that's full of geek-speak:
Aggregate Data On PS4 Internet Usage : PS4

Longest story shortest, an hour of game play will use 30-200mb of data which is likely more than web browsing but less than playing videos online.

All of the above is correct- campground wifi generally sucks. You might be able to get a 4G/LTE hotspot, something like this (each carrier has different options):
AT&T Unite - Mobile Hotspot from AT&T

You'll just have to watch usage depending on what data plan that you sign up for.

And, the speed of your actual cellular internet will affect your multi-player gaming experience. It's hard to say if a cellular internet connection is fast enough for the micro-bursts of messages that online gaming is.

That said- game and system updates should be done at home (assuming you're not full-timing). They're going to be data hogs.

Decent online gaming requires high speed data. The typical campground WiFi dose not have the speed and bandwidth you will need. You will not be happy. The whole idea of camping is to get away from all the electronic distractions you have at home.

Remember- not all of us are "camping"; what each of us do when we go on trips is a unique and personal experience.

Flyboy you forget. About full timers. I don't know if the OP is it not but we are and although we don't do online gaming having fast dependable internet connection is important.

Looks like a hit and run post since details are sparse and OP hasn't returned.

I don't really understand the question or understand how someone that plays online games wouldn't be able to answer their own question. To play games online you need a game console, a TV, and an internet connection. The location of where the person is doesn't change those needs.

It's like some kid came in and posted a question.

yea, the lack of info and how it was posted, makes it hard to figure out what the OP wants to know.
