Gaming systems have come a long way from one joystick and one button to sleek-looking machines that not only play life-like video games but also stream movies, concerts, sporting events, and so much more. Here are three things to consider to help you choose which system to buy.

There’s a strong chance you belong to at least one of the popular streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, or the new Disney+. Everyone knows movies look twice as good in 4K, so for you movie buffs, having a gaming console capable of streaming in 4K is a must.

Exclusive Games

Every gamer has genres that appeal to him or her and each gaming system has their exclusive library of games. You can’t find these games on any other system so it’s important to choose one that has a wide selection of quality games that cater to your interests.

Portability

With our busy lives, we are always on the move and it gets difficult to fit in time for entertainment. But a break from the grind is healthy and being able to game anywhere with a system that suits your schedule is major plus.
