How to pick the best gaming console

Posted in Gaming

There are several gaming consoles available on the market in 2016, but the reality is that only three systems deserve our attention: PS4, Xbox One and Wii U. Read on to discover which one of them is the one that can fulfill all your gaming needs.

Let’s start with a simple question: what type of games do you like? Wii U, which is produced by Nintendo, focuses on offering delightful gaming experiences to children and teenagers. It doesn’t have a very fast processor or video card, but it’s got several unique game titles that will delight most kids. I am talking about the Mario series, the Donkey Kong series and so on.

Xbox One and PlayStation are for people who prefer better graphics, similar with what modern PCs can offer these days, but without the hassle of installing programs, keeping them updated, and so on. In addition to this, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have stores that are filled not only with games, but also with various applications like Netflix.

Here are the key features for each one of these top gaming consoles.

PlayStation 4 has games with amazing graphics and includes a fantastic controller. It can also stream lots of legacy games via its dedicated PlayStation Network service. And it can also be used as a Blu-ray player, even though it lags a bit behind Xbox One when it comes to what it can do. Here’s a short video review that emphasizes its pros and cons.

Microsoft’s Xbox one has great graphics as well, even though their quality is a bit behind the ones provided by PlayStation 4. Still, Microsoft has managed to get an impressive array of exclusive games for its console, which is something that needs to be considered seriously if you are a fan of its titles.

One of the key features when it comes to Xbox One is its backwards compatibility. Microsoft now boasts with over one hundred Xbox 360 games (the previous console generation) that are able to run flawlessly on its latest game console. Still, Xbox One doesn’t have the straightforward interface that can be found in PlayStation for consoles.

We have said it at the beginning of the article, and we will say it again: Nintendo’s Wii U is a great gaming console for kids. The included mini console allows your kids to play games even when mom and dad are watching TV. It also works with older Wii games and accessories.

Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not just a console for kids! Mom and dad can play as well, because there are a variety of old-school games that can be downloaded straight to your console for a small fee. Still, we are not impressed by Wii U’s lack of Blu-ray support, especially when you take into account that the rooted Wii U consoles are able to do that.

Armed with all this information, you should be able to take an educated decision. And no matter what you choose, I guarantee that you are going to enjoy your gaming experience. Just make sure that you pick one of these three gaming consoles!
