Buy some great video game consoles
When it comes to getting the perfect game console this year, you essentially have three options to choose from: Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo’s Switch.
With the holiday sales, you can find discounts on all the available consoles; but of course, there are some differences and things to consider before making a decision.
Do ask though as to whether the person you’re buying for has a history with or prefers Playstation or Xbox – did they maybe own an Xbox 360 or PS3, and did they love it? Also, if you are looking for a gaming console for the longer run, chip in some extra few bucks for the 1TB version of the console.
Nintendo, on the other hand, is a bit different from PS4 and Xbox. Graphically, it’s a little behind the other competitors in the market, but what the Switch lacks in the power department, it more than makes up for it in the portability and innovation fields.
Who will be using the console?
One thing about the Switch is that it’s extremely accessible – anybody can play games on it, and in terms of parental control, Nintendo has inbuilt controls that restrict and monitor children activities, helping prevent them from the dangers of gaming.
Plus, Nintendo games are fun and most have a serious nostalgia factor. Who doesn’t want to play Super Mario or Donkey Kong? With a great story, Nintendo games are ideal for kids seven and older.
What kind of games are available on the console?
The real debate of which console to buy always comes down to the games available. The PS4 has had a few solid years of great exclusives, with the likes of Horizon: Zero Dawn, Marvel’s Spider-Man, God of War, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End flattering the console; while the Xbox One has had the likes of Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 4, and Sunset Overdrive.
The Nintendo Switch got off to a bit of a slow start, but has really expanded its gaming library in recent months, with releases such as Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate now headlining the console.
