The gaming industry has been taken by a storm by the PS4, the Nintendo Switch, and the Xbox One gaming consoles. These offer amazing specs, software, and attractive hardware, all at a competitive price. So, if you are looking to buy a console and find yourself stuck between these three, don’t panic. You aren’t the only one! These three consoles have been subjected to many gruesome tests, and have still come out with flying colors.
By improving on past mistakes, and adding mouth-watering new features, the manufacturers have proven that they take their work seriously. In doing so, they have also created a monster question for the market- which one to buy? In this article, we will discuss some of the amazing new features of all three of these hi-tech machines and try to figure out a winner of this epic face-off between gaming consoles!
Let’s start with the most hyped tech in the market, and see how these consoles have used it to enhance the gaming experience.
The clear losers in this field are Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch that have no integration with any VR technology. PS4, on the other hand, has an amazing and surprisingly cheap VR headset that takes the gaming experience to another level- a level Xbox or Nintendo failed even to enter.
Another recent addition to most of the gaming consoles is that of the addition of online services. The PlayStation has its Network, and the Xbox offers Xbox Live. Users need to purchase a premium subscription to use both. However, Nintendo’s Switch Online feature offers almost all similar services at a third of the price of the PS4 or the Xbox One. Apart from this it also offers free games on the internet.
The Xbox One has an amazing new controller, which is a slight modification of the previous version. The PS4 offers an incredibly improved version of its controller, the DualShock 4. However, the clear best in this category is the Nintendo Switch. It serves as both a controller and a handheld console. It has an infrared camera, an NFC reader, and an incredibly accurate rumble effect.
Both PS4 and Xbox one didn’t start off as great performers in this field, but Sony and Microsoft released their updated versions with 4K resolution options that include High Dynamic Range (HDR) graphics. This functionality depended a lot on the games being played too. In this case, the Nintendo lags behind, as it comes with a built-in 720p screen. When connected to a TV Screen, the maximum it can generate is a 1080p resolution, thus losing out on the key graphics category.
After all, these incredibly amazing features offered by all three consoles one key aspect of a console still stands- the pricing.
All three consoles seem to have drawn in this category, with their prices hovering at about $300. This price would get one a PS4 Slim, the Xbox One S, and the Nintendo Switch.
Thus ends our quest to find the best out of these three consoles, with PS4 being our personal favorite choice due to its amazing hardware and equally appealing features.
