The gaming world is so competitive. Whether it be through the games being developed, or the platforms they’re being developed for. Each has their pros and cons. Each also has their diversity in terms of games available, how they’re played, and the competitors within that field. Each area has made huge strides to keep up with their competitors, and it can only keep getting better. Some platforms are more suited to certain age groups, whilst others appeal more to an older generation. Some people will have their firm favourites with this one, but let’s explore what each one has to offer.

Console has been the long standing favourite with pretty much everyone. Although now it would seem it has to compete somewhat with the growing popularity of PC gaming. Anyway, the variety of console gaming is huge. The least popular console would probably be the nintendo variety. It’s more tailored towards families and children. The Wii especially is so interactive, it really draws the younger generation in. The games are usually a lot more fun activity based, rather than a story. For example, Mario Kart was a firm favourite with families around the world due to its competitive, yet fun nature. The DS range of the Nintendo’s is also extremely popular with the younger generation, again due to its interactiveness, and games tailored more for people of a younger age.

Then there’s the battle between Playstation and Xbox. Instantly, people reading this will know whether they’re a PS4 or Xbox kind of person.

Both have the same internet features, with both the web and apps such as Netflix or Amazing being easily accessible for both. The speed and reliability of both are pretty equal, as well as design.
