The advantage of gaming consoles is that you can share the fun with friends and family.

So without wasting any further time, go through the list and based on your requirement, make your choice.

#2. Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch Gaming Console

This one is an all-rounder. It can connect to TV, convert to a tablet, and also a handheld gaming console. It all depends on where you are and with whom you wish to play.

PlayStation 4 Pro 1TB Gaming Console

PS4 Pro is for serious gamers, and that’s because this one has some serious hardware under its hood. While I’ll bet my money on Xbox One S at any given time, this one indeed has the potential to make a dent in the market share of the Xbox series. The PS4 Pro has an 8-Core AMD Jaguar CPU with 8GB of GDDR5 RAM.

When it comes to GPU, the PRO version achieves 4.2 TFLOP with AMD Radeon; this is more than double its predecessors. Apart from hardware, the console has HDR as well as 4K capabilities to bring a realistic gaming experience.

SNES and NES Nintendo Gaming Console

You might be wondering why an 8-bit console from attics is listed as the best gaming console to buy in 2019? The reason is simple; it is still entertaining. In fact, it entertains a little more because of the childhood memories attached to the games. Of course, there’s nothing to talk about graphics or HDR or 4K here.

The only technology advancement this console has adopted is the compatibility of HDMI connection; as most of the TVs, these days support it.

  • Those who are excited to experience 8-bit gaming
