There would be no child on earth who is not fascinated by video games. Not only children, however, plenty of adults have started loving video games due to the fact that they have matured a lot of over the last decade.

So in case you are wondering which video game console you should get your children on holidays, we have got you covered in this article.

While all three; PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch are the most popular video game consoles, there are plenty of differences between them.

As far as scaling to 4K resolution goes, Xbox One relies on a simplistic upscaling. In comparison, PS4 has a better rendering qualities and hence, a better 4K performance. In comparison to both of these console, the Nintendo Switch does not have very impressive graphics. However, it comes with the benefit of incomparable handheld features.

In terms of graphics, all three of these sit at different levels and are hence, not one and the same. Do note that the Nintendo Switch does not have a support for 4K resolution.

However, it is unfair to say that the Nintendo Switch has poor graphics. This is because the Nintendo Switch still has a number of impressive looking games such as the Breath of the Wild. These games have a unique art style which is unique and distinctive for Nintendo. Since Nintendo is a hybrid console, the Switch was never designed to match with the level of graphics that the Xbox One and PS4 have. Instead, most of the focus was put on the game play experience and the handheld mode. This was primarily because due to the hybrid nature of the Nintendo Switch, there has been some significant level of compromises on the performance.

So in case you are looking for games that have the latest, heaviest graphics, PS4 pro or the Xbox One will be a significantly better choice for you. While there exists a great level of overlap in between the PS4 pro and XBOX One, this is not true for the Nintendo Switch.

As far as the console games go, Nintendo Switch has games that are primarily dedicated for this particular console. Whereas there are quite a lot of common games for the PS4 and XBOX One, with a few titles that are dedicated just for one console. For instance, the Halo Series is distinctive for the XBOX whereas the Uncharted Series is distinctive for the Playstation consoles.

There are some other very attractive exclusive franchises that are developed only for the Xbox. These include Forza, and Gears of War. On the other hand, some highly popular Playstation exclusives include games such as The Last of Us, Bloodborne, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and a lot more.

In general, Playstation performs the best in the third person person adventure titles and the open world games. On the other hand, the Xbox is preferred for games that include racing and first person shooters. However, since the differences are so minute, many people prefer the one over the other based on personal preferences.
