How to Find the Best Game Console  For You

  There's no doubt that both Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are hard at work developing the next generation of game consoles, but the truth is that so far there hasn't been enough reason to make the upgrade. Normally the life span of a games console is considered to be 5 years, and while at least one of the current consoles in the market has reached this age, there's still no signs of it being upgraded.


 

Sure enough, technology keeps evolving, but there's only so much faster processing can do. There hasn't been any significant developments to justify a next generation gaming system. So which one is the best game console for you when looking at what the market has to offer today?

The grand old man on the scene at present is the Xbox 360. Having been released in 2005, it's now 5 years old, and the signs are starting to show. You'll not get such things as built in WIFI or Blu-Ray with the Xbox 360, but on the other hand you'll get plenty of games to chose from, and the on line gaming community on Xbox 360 Live is second to none.

Sony PlayStation 3 has got all these features, and is by far the most powerful games console on the market right now. After a shaky start with technical issues and a disastrous lack of good games, the PlayStation 3 is now up to speed with a number of great games on the shelves or due to be released shortly. Also, the built in Blu-Ray player makes the PlayStation 3 the top pick, and the best selling games console on Amazon.com at the moment.

The last key player on the market, when it comes to stationary games consoles, is the Nintendo Wii . When released a few years ago it was hailed as a revolution in gaming consoles, and to some extent it is. With its controls having built in movement sensors, it adds a new dimension to gaming, and caters for a new range of fitness related games. At the same time, the focus of most of the games for the Wii is on family fun, and the ability to compete against each other. True - you won't get fast game-play - and not even be able to play DVDs from the Wii, but the fun and addictive games for this console is unsurpassed.

Also, when it comes to handheld game consoles, Nintendo has hit the nail on its head with their Nintendo DSi console. Again, the amount of fun and addictive games you can get for the Nintendo DSi is second to none, and it holds hours of fun for kids of all ages. The built in camera, and the option to manipulate the photos and the sounds you can record with it, provides nearly as much entertainment as the games themselves.

Although the Sony PSP and Apple's iPod touch and iPhone does make some decent attempts, they don't really come anywhere near knocking the Nintendo DSi off the first place. While the Sony PSP is more powerful, the selection of games isn't to the same level. As for Apple's products, they were developed for different purposes, and merely has the gaming options as an extra selling point.

So which one of the above choices is going to be the best game console for you? Only you can make that decision, but I hope my review will have helped you make up your mind.
