In the last article we looked at one of the most popular gaming consoles available on the market today, explaining what makes the Xbox 360 such a top machine. Now we will be seeing how two of its rivals offer something different, giving you more choice when selecting the right one for a Christmas present.
Sony PlayStation 3
If you are looking for an all-rounder, then this console may just be your best bet. While its online gaming exploits can’t quite match that of the Xbox, it still provides a decent online gaming service for free. The main plus points of the PS3 are its plethora of gadgets and features. The fact that you can use it as a Blu-ray disc player makes it the most suitable console for those who love watching movies – and don’t want to have separate hardware for playing games.
Again, the PS3 is a good option for the groups mentioned in the previous article; teenagers, dads and the occasional online gamer.
This games machine is perfect for the whole family as it is more inclusive for mums and children. It is also made for those who are fanatical about their fitness. You can have hours of fun playing active games using their motion controllers, which put you right in the thick of the action. With a wide selection of games available with the unit, you know you are getting something everyone will love.
Whichever of these consoles you think would be the most appropriate for the recipient or the family as a whole, make sure your TV is up to scratch so you can get the most out of the video games machine. And don’t forget your TV brackets, so the unit can be safely mounted up on the wall.
