There are numerous types of gaming consoles available to purchase online, with some amazing capabilities and outstanding features. From the latest models from brands like Sony and Microsoft that features high-def graphics to handheld models from Nintendo that you can take anywhere, there is a console for your every needs and budget.

What is a Game Console?

A game console is a computer system that lets users play several types of games using a joystick device or keypad. You can plug it into your TV or monitor. Most console models can also play DVDs, CDs and music as well as connect to the internet, turning them into a home entertainment system instead of just a simple game machine.

Early models of video games consoles in the 70's and 80's used game cartridges that would slot into the unit, while during the 90's, the concept of using a compact disc to hold games was introduced with the popular Sony PlayStation.

Today's game consoles can use flash memory, DVDs and hard drives, and the latest models can even play high definition Blu-Ray and HD-DVD video discs.

How to Get Started

The first thing you need to consider when looking for the right console is what you want from it. Are you looking for something to connect and play with other gamers thru internet or something to help you stay in shape?

You can purchase stand-alone consoles, but a lot come packaged as bundles with the latest desirable game or games at a more affordable price to try and win your custom. Keep in mind though that once you’ve completed that game, you will be stuck with the console, so try not to be swayed by the bundled game when making a decision. This is a fast-evolving area of new technology but, whether you’re a hardcore gamer, or simply looking for an entertainment system, a game console can provide you and your family with hours and hours of fun. Simply connect to a television and you’re ready to go.

What are My Options?

Until recently, there have only been three major players in this market. Sony’s PlayStation, Nintendo’s Wii U and Microsoft’s Xbox are the most popular consoles in the country. Competition is fierce and all of these consoles bring out upgrades, or next generation ones, at regular intervals to try and stay one step ahead of their competitors.

However, Nvidia, popular for manufacturing PC processors and graphics technologies, have entered the console market with its Android-based entertainment system called Shield. The Shield's Tegra processor allows you run games in 4K resolution. You are required to have a Google account to play, but if you have one of the latest 4K televisions, you’ll enjoy a better visual experience, although other specifications may not live up to the brand leaders.

Another worth checking out are Steam Machines. Steam is a cloud gaming service which sells many more games than available for regular games consoles. Until now, you could only play these games on a PC, but a number of PC manufacturers are bringing out Steam Machines, an entertainment device that lets you play all the games available on Steam on your television.

Things to Consider

  • Games. Some games are exclusive to a particular console, but far fewer than in the past. Most games offer single-player use, or multiplayer, allowing you to connect and play against friends via a broadband connection.
  • Motion Control. The device senses your movements and uses it to control the game.
  • Memory. Most consoles provide around 8GB or RAM but if you have the budget, opt for a higher memory.
  • Handheld. If you want to play while on the go, handheld consoles is something you may want to consider.
  • Graphics. A powerful graphics processor can increase the richness of the content, providing high-fidelity graphics and a life-like viewing experience.
  • Smart TV. Consoles allow you transform your television into a Smart TV with your games console to stream film and TV programmes and browse the web. The Xbox One and PS4 also play DVD and Blu-ray movies in the optical drive.
  • Pre-owned. If you want to save and don’t have enough money to shell out for a new console, you may want to opt for a second-hand console from reputable suppliers like CEX at discounted prices.
