I'm looking for a decent microphone for live streaming and game commentaries. I stream games within our gaming community and we average a few hundred viewers. I've noticed in the comments that people are saying my microphone quality isn't brilliant. I need to order from Amazon UK as I have £40 in vouchers, and money is a little tight with rent going up. I've been looking at the Blue Snowball on Amazon which is currently £42.

 

Does anyone use this microphone and can tell me if this would be a good choice?

Get a headset. They are, IMO, better than a microphone alone.

 

Look at Creative or Plantronics for your price range.

Blue Snowballs are regarded as pretty good, but if you are serious you will eventually have to get a better quality mic, but your choice should be good for starters
