Choosing the right games console can be confusing, with buying advice often dense with jargon and assumed knowledge. You might think it’s obvious that Xbox One X is the most powerful console. Or that PS4 has the greatest diversity of games. But this level of knowledge represents a fraction of those who are interested in games. There is no ‘right’ console for everyone and your choice depends on your answers to a number of simple questions. Who are you buying it for? What's your budget? Have you owned a console before? Do you like to play in real life or online? What console do your friends own? What games do you want to play? Do you own a 4K TV? How often do you watch Netflix and streaming services? What's your budget for hidden costs? We'll address all of these questions in our common-sense guide to choosing the best games console from PlayStation, Xbox or Nintendo. We'll explain what each model means e.g. What’s the difference between a PS4 and a PS4 Pro? … [Read more...] about Which games console should I buy?

Nintendo’s Short Sighted Approach Is Hurting The Wii U From the time Nintendo showed off the Wii at their E3 press conference, I knew I had to have one for three reasons. Reason number one was Super Mario Galaxy. After the somewhat lackluster Super Mario Sunshine, Galaxy looked like a monumental leap for the 3D platforming franchise. The gameplay looked incredibly fluid and innovative, the graphics were beautiful, and the soundtrack was exquisite. The second reason was Metroid Prime 3. The Metroid Prime series was one of the best franchises in gaming, and the Wii-mote looked like it would vastly improve the way the series played. Then, we had the debut trailer for Smash Brothers Brawl. The trailer they showed didn’t have any gameplay footage, but it was Smash Brothers, it would be playable online, and it had Solid Snake in it. What else did I need to know? These games weren’t due out for some time, but that was fine. I knew I was going to buy a Wii whenever they did … [Read more...] about The Nintendrone: Nintendo’s Short Sighted Approach Is Hurting The Wii U
4/09/2013 Preemptive I Told You So: Wii U To Outsell PS4 And Xbox 720 This Holiday Season One of the surest ways to get hits on a gaming website is to take the console that’s doing more poorly. It’s the gaming media equivalent of throwing dodge balls at the fat kid. Say a system is doomed and you’ll instantly attract fan boys on each side of the fence. We’ve had a long line of doomed consoles from the DS (which was bound to be destroyed by Sony’s more powerful PSP), to the Wii (pre launch everyone had written it off), the PS3 (599 US Dollars), to the 3DS (my godz the iPhonez are going to keel it), the Vita, and now the Wii U. We even have the Xbox 720 getting its fair share of doom and gloom before the system has even been announced! We need something to bash for cheap hits, and our collective history of awful predictions hasn’t stopped us from hopping aboard the doom train. Because of all the doom facing the Wii U, I want to go on record with the … [Read more...] about 4/09/2013 Preemptive I Told You So: Wii U To Outsell PS4 And Xbox 720 This Holiday Season

Those who had enough restraint, however, will be rewarded with Wii U Game Pad functionality, including the ability to to change weapons on the go and have a large version of the map on screen at all times (very helpful considering just how many destinations are packed into ACIII).
