Why the console war is over

Game Consoles

Before we get started let me make this perfectly clear. If you are here to see me bash the system you hate or praise the one you love, you will be disappointed. I own an Playstation 4 pro and an Xbox One, both of which i enjoy as well as a Nintendo 3DS.

With that being said lets be honest, if you are looking for a home console that is strictly for an adult gamer, the ps4 i where most peoples money goes. Even Microsoft has said they have no intention of nor can they catch up. Its got solid graphics, most games re for both systems, and it has a far wider variety of exclusives. It also has less options for customization in the settings and while Hulu, YouTube and Netflix  work just fine on it, the Xbox is built as a media center while the Xbox is not. That being said the Xbox does have some solid exclusives like Gears of War and Halo, it has far more customization and is honestly more complicated to use when you really dig into it. I hated trying to stream on Twitch with it, tho even there it had different options on things like screen resolution. Both are great, but they are built with a different audience in mind.

This brings me to Nintendo that is aimed at yet another audience. They have dominated the hand held market for, well forever really. Their home consoles largely seem to be aimed at children and retro games with their virtual console. They are the gaming industries version of the great white shark, it hasn’t evolved because it doesn’t need to.

All in all the console war ( at least for now) is dead, and probably has been for long than people think, we have many great consoles out there all that seem to have decided to aim for a different audience, which isn’t a bad thing. Notice i have not mentioned the Nintendo Switch or even pc, the switch is to new to tell where it will go and pc i have no real experience with. As always, thank for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
