Buyer Guide To Video Game Console

The most sold video game consoles today are from Nintendo Wii, Sony PlayStation and the Microsoft Xbox series. If you examine more closely, they do not cater to the same type of player profiles due to their capabilities supported and the design approach used by each

Nintendo Wii is designed to share the pleasure of play with other members of the family (both young and old) thanks to the intuitive controllers of Wii which can be mastered easily in a short time. This is possible due the motion sensing feature in their wireless controllers. They impart the players a sense of truly “experiencing the game”.

PlayStation and Xbox targets gamer who prefer intense action and role-play games, their consoles can be viewed as complete multimedia platforms. They both offer High Definition imaging, DVD and CD players, a huge amount of hard disk storage. Like the Wii, these products offer motion sensing controllers for experiencing the “true feeling” of the action, but they need to be bought as additional accessories.

3 key considerations to look for in video game console

Now that you know the strength of each of the above 3 company, below are 3 key considerations you need to review before deciding on which model is right for you and your family.

1.Price

The newest gaming consoles can be pricey, but you don’t have to spend a lot for an exciting gaming experience. For example, Nintendo Switch mobile gaming system is more than $100 cheaper than many of its competitors. You can also find great deals on classic systems.

2.Compatibility

If you’ve previously owned a gaming console, you should consider buying a new console that’s compatible with the library of games you’ve likely collected. In this aspects, Xbox One has much better backwards compatibility when compared to the other consoles

3.4K or VR support

How important is it to you to be able to play your favorite games in true 4K? If you’re answer is “must-have,” you’ll want a console that supports 4K display. However if your answer is “not necessary,” you can settle for something else. The same goes for virtual reality (VR) as well. as not all systems will support it.

So there you have it. Below is my list of recommended video game console for the different requirements.

Xbox One S All-Digital Edition – Best Value

The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition has the processing power as the normal XBox One S.

Lower price version of Xbox One S

The normal Xbox One S is already a good value, aimed specifically at people who want the modern-gen console experience, without the price tag of the flagships, and are okay sacrificing a bit on power

This Xbox One S All-Digital Edition only comes in 1TB storage size (which is a good size for digital storage) and it doesn’t include the Blu-ray drive.

Digital games

What the Xbox One S All-Digital version gives you is a 100% download-based system (vs the usual physical copy of the games on disc).  As a results, you same some money without the need for an optical drive.  I don’t think this is any issue as we are going digital anyway.  That’s the trend.  So you are not missing much here. 

Bundled games

Xbox is even getting you started with three games included: Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 3.

Verdict

A first for gaming: a truly disc-less all digital console for the modern age.  And at a cheaper price as well.  Definitely worth considering.
