It has been a lengthy debate among gamers on which gaming console is the best only for a hardcore PC gamer to come and ruin the party claiming nothing is better than a PC. Although we cannot claim to know the answer to “Which gaming console is the best?” we certainly believe there is a right fit for your needs.
The Overall best
Sony PlayStation 4 Pro
There are many reasons for the popularity of a Sony PS. It has 4K, HDR 10 compatibility, and an exclusive game library bettered by no other console. When it comes to supporting high-fidelity games, exclusive titles in both the commercial and indie scene, and quick access to new games, the PS4 Pro is unparalleled.
The rivalry between Xbox One and PS4 has been mouthwatering, but the Xbox falls behind on a number of must-have exclusives like God of War or The Last of Us. PlayStation also has an option to pick up the PlayStation VR which is one of the most affordable VR headsets in its class; The Xbox One, on the other hand, has no Virtual Reality support. The PS4 Pro also supports improved framerate, 4K resolution, and HDR support.
The High-Resolution (4K) beast
Xbox One X
The Xbox One does give the PS4 Pro a run for the money on most aspects, but there is one aspect of the Xbox, which is unparalleled – 4K support for gaming. With a 4K Blu-Ray player the Xbox supports high-resolution games as well as movies.
When Microsoft said that Xbox One X is the most powerful home gaming console ever sold, they meant we might not have the gaming library of a PlayStation, but we are doubling down on the hardware aspect of the Xbox which would mean better visuals on games optimized or not. The Xbox has always been able to compete with the PlayStation, be it with better hardware or coming up with their own Xbox exclusives.
The Portable Gamer
When the makers of Super Mario entered the gaming console race, they quickly realized that competing with the already ever improving PlayStation and Xbox might be a losing cause. The Nintendo Switch is a hybrid device which plugs into a TV just like a PS4 or Xbox, but it also works handheld.
The Switch might not be able to work on 4K or 60fps, but it has revived several classics with Dark Souls Remastered, Super Mario Odyssey, and Skyrim.
Nintendo has also announced a Virtual Reality kit which has got Nintendo lovers excited.
The Nintendo Switch is a great companion for people who already own a PS4 or Xbox One.
The Retro Gamer
SNES classic edition
The SNES classic edition gives gamers from the late 90s a nostalgic ride at just USD 80.
The 16-bit wonders like Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Super Metroid, Super Mario Kart, and Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting are available on the SNES along with the classic CRT filter option mimicking the old TVs.
