If you’re one of those individuals who has been holding off adopting a current-gen gaming console since their release, but is itching to pick one up, now is the time. The PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch are all in affordable states, and the wealth of games coming out in 2019 is truly awe-inspiring; but, where can you find the best deals on said consoles?
Xbox One S 500GB console

What we like: Microsoft’s 500GB Xbox One console is the perfect entry-point for gamers who are looking to indulge in the big-name titles out there at the moment without hurting the bank too much. In addition to recently-released hits like Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey and Resident Evil 2, quality exclusives such as Gears of War 4 and Forza Horizon 4, among many others.
Playstation 4 500GB console
Price range: various bundles available from R5,499 | Find the best deal here.
What we like: Sony has been hitting it out of the park in recent years with their PS4 exclusives, so if you were aiming to buy a console and have a little more to spend, the PS4 is arguably the best decision. From God of War to Uncharted 4, the PS4 has some stellar games in its library to keep you buys in 2019.
Price range: from R6,499 | Find the best deal here.
What we like: Nintendo’s Switch had a huge start with a record-breaking release, but the momentum behind Nintendo’s portable console has slowed down a little bit. That doesn’t mean it’s not a good buy though, with the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey (both Switch exclusives) being some of the best rated games of the generation.
