The name Nintendo always brings to mind plenty of retro classics. With their next gen system the Wii U, a lot of those are revived in 1080p and experienced like never before. Unlike the original Wii, the Wii U comes with a touchpad, or GamePad, that can be used as a controller. It’s like having two consoles in one. The GamePad has two analog sticks, rumble features, speakers, a front facing camera, and traditional Nintendo controls as well as a 6.2-inch LCD touchscreen. Games can be played on a TV as well as the GamePad. Most of the original Wii accessories can be used with the Wii U as well. This system also has wireless capabilities and great apps available like Netflix and YouTube.
The PlayStation 4 gaming console is a powerhouse with a 500GB hard drive capable of the best in high definition graphics with a few of its exclusive titles like the Last of Us remastered and Bloodborne.
PlayStation 4 Pro
The PlayStation 4 Pro is the future of Sony gaming consoles and the upcoming PlayStation VR only further shows the capabilities of the next step in gaming. Having HDR, 4K support and a massive 1TB hard drive gaming has never been easier or more fun with a PlayStation 4 Pro.
PlayStation Virtual Reality
As with the PS4 Pro, this has not yet released but with just a short time before its release I will have more info to come. And as always feel free to ask anything and we’ll figure it out together! 🙂
The original Xbox one system is a 500gb gaming console that plays all the newest and greatest experiences from Microsoft studios. Capable of wireless online gaming and high definition graphics with exclusive games like gears of war ultimate edition and halo 5 guardians all at affordable prices. Although this system doesn’t stream or display game play in 4K, it does have 4K support for those who have 4K TVs. The wireless controllers do not have built in rechargeable batteries, but do have charge cables and power stations available to ensure the controllers stay wireless for as long as possible. There are also plenty of other accessories available for this system such as headsets and advanced controllers. With internal storage options up to 1TB available there are a few editions available of the original Xbox One. This system, as with most systems, is suitable for all ages with the large selection of games rated from (E)veryone to (M)ature for those only 17 and older.
Pros: 1080p Full HD potential, standard storage options up to 1TB
Cons: install times can be rather lengthy, slightly bulky system
Xbox One S
The new Xbox One S is microsofts furthest step thus far into the next generation. With its 4K streaming and BluRay capabilities and HDR, players will get the absolute best graphics. With 1TB of space on the standard edition, there’s plenty of room even for those games players rarely play but always keep on their hard drive. This cuts down drastically on deleting these games to make room for new ones. No more power bricks to find room for. The power source is built right into the console and yet Microsoft still designed it to be 40% smaller. If you already have an Xbox One you know how much space it takes up on an entertainment center. Also, if you already own the original, it’s not necessarily a must or push to buy the new system. As with every new system the Xbox One S does have its ups AND downs. Sure there are a few upgrades from the previous console, but with the new system launching at $399 that’s more money for a smaller system with better picture and better controller. Without a 4K TV the full potential of the new system as far as graphics will not be met. If this is something you want, then that’s another huge investment in a new TV as well as the console itself. The new console is also white. If you’re not much of a fan of white, as always there are a few editions available at the moment. All games compatible with the original Xbox One console will also be playable on the Xbox One S as well.

Pros: 4K Ultra HD streaming and BluRay capabilities, lightweight smaller design, power brick is now built into the system, upgraded controller with fine grips on the back
Cons: Minor upgrades for a bigger investment
