Many of us want to play from time to time. Someone for this is going with friends on the football field. Others choose professional sport. And still others use the gaming console. Now six platforms are relevant (if we forget about portable versions). These are Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii and Wii U. You can also purchase a very outdated console for a small child, but we do not advise you to do this - buy a tablet computer instead. He will please the baby much more. Well, this article will tell you what game console to choose if you want to buy it.
Focus on the degree of their workload.
The game console will be located at home, near the TV. Do you often go home? If you are regularly at work or with friends, then it makes no sense to lay out a lot of money for the console. You need to confine the past generation - Xbox 360 or PS3. For these consoles released a huge number of games. It is possible that with your busy schedule you will not be able to estimate even half of the coolest projects.
Sony console - for all lovers of exclusives
Some games are available only on one console - in this case, they are called exclusives. The largest number of such projects can boast the console from Sony. If you want to touch the world of exclusives, then you should start with the PlayStation 3 with its Uncharted series, the chic game The Last of Us, the great Gran Turismo 6 and two God of War. On the PS4, similar games exist in a smaller number, but that will change in 2016. As for Microsoft products ... Unfortunately, exclusives are released for its console less often.
There are free funds? Look towards the current generation
If you are not going to save, then buy the current generation console. It will please you with more modern graphics - the resolution of most games is equal to or very close to Full HD. Also important is the fact that new games will be released on PS4 and Xbox One for at least another five years. As for the old cool games, you will not miss them - they are gradually coming out as reissues. At least, the owners of PS4 in 2016 will be able to pass all Uncharted and God of War. And The Last of Us was re-released last year.
If you are a fan of active activities, then you need a Wii or its advanced version - Wii U. With such a prefix you will jump in front of the screen - this is what is required from the user. Also for these consoles are released third-party accessories that allow you to engage in fitness and other activities. However, you will have to come to terms with low graphics - in this respect, the console is seriously inferior to its competitors from Microsoft and Sony.
You should also focus on how to use the console. Many are beginning to forget about this, but the product from Sony can be used as a Blu-ray player. If you still do not have such a device, then the choice is obvious? Not really, support for the appropriate format has acquired Xbox One. Therefore, movie lovers can not instantly make a choice in the direction of a particular console. And if you want to use the device to watch movies - do not forget to purchase a remote control, as you will not find it in the kit.
The most common consequence of a wrong choice is the rare use of the console. For some people, it has been gathering dust for months. This may be due to the fact that a person does not have time to play. Or he was wrong with the prefix - there are simply no games of interest on the purchased one. Also, a person could not calculate their capabilities - the console was purchased, and there was no money for games.
