Comparing The Three Top Game Consoles Today

The gaming industry is growing at a rapid rate. The industry grew more than 44% compared to the sales that it made in year 2006 and 2007. However, there are still a lot of people who don’t know what game console to purchase, and some even end up buying the game console that cannot provide the gaming experience they are looking for. This article is written to help you decide the best console that fits your lifestyle and gaming habits perfectly.

Let’s start with the most luxurious game console; the Sony PlayStation. This console is being sold in gaming stores for as much as $500 per unit. One may say $500 for a gaming system alone? Well, where else can you find a Blu-Ray player built inside a game console, Wi-Fi capability, HDMI support, Bluetooth 2.0, a massive 250 GB hard disk and an open network that allows players to compete with each other?

The next in the list is Nintendo Wii which is said to be popular among kids, kids at heart, and even the elderly. This console is the first to introduce motion sensors that allows the console to accurately track the movements of players and convert it to in-game movements instantly. Being a product of Nintendo, this game console is considered as one of the best 7th generation game console due to the advanced features that it offers.

And finally the Xbox 360 of Microsoft, which costs at least $150 cheaper compared to PlayStation 3. It offers some of the best games in the planet today like Halo, Call of Duty, and Gears of War. It also provides an online network that will allow the players to compete against other Xbox players, but you need to pay $50 for the membership. I personally think that Xbox is more popular for gamers who prefer first-person shooting games compared to other game categories.

Game Consoles Taking Entertainment To Another Level

I know that, 10 years ago, no one expected that game consoles will be as advanced as they are today. From being a tool that is used to play games, they are now used as a source of total entertainment for everyone. More interaction, advanced graphics and audio, better game play, and storyline. Who would have expected that gaming will evolve this fast in such a short period of time?

From classic joysticks, controllers have evolved to controllers with D-Pad that can be held in hand, then here come weapons, instruments, and even racing wheel-based controllers, and suddenly we now have controllers that can track movements of the players. Some consoles even allow gamers to play games without using a controller! These changes in the controller helped us enjoy games better, but the evolution does not end there.

From cartridges, to CDs, to DVDs, now we have consoles that can play Blu-Ray games and even movies. Game consoles also allow us to wirelessly connect to the Internet, giving us the chance to browse our favorite sites, and download game demos, right in to your game console. Even the design and outer covering of game consoles have evolved from plastic-like with dull colors, to metallic covering with futuristic design.

The games that can be played also evolved from 2D graphics with low resolution, enhanced 2D graphics, 3D, and finally, 3D HD. We can play games with a realistic feel, helping us to generate the raw feeling of becoming a real in-game character. Some games even make us feel like watching movies instead of playing games.

We cannot deny the fact the game console is taking entertainment to a whole new level, with their new innovations. I can only be sure of one thing, we, gamers, will be spoiled with a lot of new things from game console companies as they continue to attract more attention and finally gain the lead in one of the most profitable industries.
