Best Gaming Consoles: PS5, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch and more

Being a gamer right now is amazing. If you need an upgrade or some new gear, now is the ideal time to buy a new video game console because there are so many new games released every month. Should you purchase a brand-new Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5?

We've had a lot of experience with all of these systems, so we can confidently say that whichever one you choose is a wise decision. These devices offer something for everyone, from stunning visuals to slick performance and the ability to take your gaming experiences with you wherever you go.

Regardless of the console you intend to buy, we suggest that you do so as soon as you can. Over the past year, supply problems have made it extremely difficult to find any of the top consoles. These popular gaming devices are quickly sold out from the shelves.

    3. Nintendo Switch

    Nitendo switch

    Nintendo avoided the current console arms race by changing where you use your console rather than how you use it. The Switch is a hybrid device that, like the PS5 and Xbox Series X, plugs into a TV but also functions as a handheld.

    While it lacks the power to play the latest 4K, 120 fps releases slated for next-gen consoles, the Switch can play Doom at a smooth 30 FPS anywhere, which is more than enough for many gamers. In addition to modern titles like Control, the Switch is an excellent platform for resurrecting modern classics like The Witcher 3, L.A. Noire, and Dark Souls Remastered.

      4. Play Station 4 Pro

      PS4 Pro

      While many gamers are upgrading to the PlayStation 5, last-generation consoles still have a lot of life in them. The PlayStation 4 Pro is still a serious gaming machine with a large library of games, and the price of the console (as well as games, accessories, and so on) will continue to fall. 

      The PS4 Pro is also slightly easier to find than the PS5, but most modern consoles have been plagued by low availability as a result of the recent chip shortage. 

      Because of the enhanced graphics and sharper images for 4K-enabled titles, the PS4 Pro provides an impressive playing experience for 4K television owners.
