PlayStation, Xbox or Nintendo: Which is best?

When it comes time to invest in a new games console; for some there is no question. For those who loved the previous generation of PlayStation, Xbox or Nintendo, it can often make sense to invest in the latest generation when it’s released. But for those on the fence, it can be an extremely difficult decision to make. Making that decision comes down to weighing up the pros and cons, and checking out the features, accessories and video games available for each console.

When comparing game consoles, one of the first things to look at is cost. Check out eBay’s range of game consoles to find out how much sellers are asking for each console, and then browse various options to compare prices. It’s also worthwhile doing some background research to find out if there are any ongoing fees to pay when using the console, as this should be factored into the total cost.

It can also be a good idea to check out which video games are available for each console. Some games can be played on PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo, while others are unique to the console. Find out the cost of these games – again eBay’s range of video games is perfect for this – and read up on various reviews to find out more about each game.

Now it’s time to look at accessories. Game consoles offer additional functionality with extra accessories, such as controllers, steering wheels and pedals. Check out reviews on these accessories, as well as their cost. Other factors to think about include backwards compatibility, console interface, and additional features, such as Wi-Fi capability, social media sharing, and media streaming. Before making any decision, consider all factors, while taking into account who will be using the console most.
