We can’t decide whether to call it a console or a portable. Honestly, the Nintendo Switch is a little of both. Dock its 6.2-inch, 720p touchscreen and it lets you play in HD on your TV. Grab it up, attach the Joy-Con controllers, and you’ve got a portable. Those same controllers can detach for multiplayer gaming, or just for wireless play when you flip out the screen’s kickstand. It’s powered by a custom Nvidia chip, has 32 GB of internal storage that’s expandable via MicroSD, promises up to six hours of play per charge, and gets the highly-anticipated The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as a launch title. Arriving in stores March 3rd.
With 4K TVs becoming more and more commonplace, it only makes sense that gamers want 4K graphics to match. That’s exactly what the PlayStation 4 Pro will provide. A mid-generation update of the already-popular console, it has an upgraded CPU and GPU to let it support both 4K and HDR games. Most current PS4 titles will be able to upgrade to 4K via a simple patch, while newer titles will be developed to take full advantage of the new hardware. It also has a 1TB hard drive standard, will have 4K-compatible apps for services like Netflix and YouTube, and will enable better graphics for the upcoming PlayStation VR, as well. Coming in November.
