Market Conditions

According to the current market conditions, PS4 and Xbox One are preferred than Wii U, and they’re gradually gobbling the market share of Nintendo. For Nintendo, it’s so hard to achieve sales target for the year.

Target Audience

If you’re a single-player gamer and want to play Fallout 4, The Witcher 3, Elder Scrolls VI and Ass. Creed, PS4 is your best bet.

If you’re a hardcore gamer and like first person shooters, zombie games, racing games and other online multiplayer games, Xbox One is the best console for you, which has 300,000 servers and a stronger launch line-up.

If you have a family, Wii U is most suitable for you. It has local multiplayer games and Wii U’s gamepad can be used as a semi-portable game device, meaning you can take the game off the big screen and continue playing around the house.

Own Characteristics

PS4 runs on a simplified and logical interface, boasts a fantastic controller, and has a more powerful graphics processor than other rivals. Just run the initial PS4 setup and you can connect your Facebook account. This’s a nice PS4 experience. With PS4, Sony focus on streaming, social networking, and sharing. Regrettably, PS3 games aren’t compatible.

Xbox One comes with a Kinect sensor, which is needed to make the console function. The extensive voice control capabilities of Kinect is near-perfect. Xbox One has live TV, it has super-fast multitasking.

When it comes to price and family games, Wii U has a big advantage. Wii U is still the best system for families, especially families with younger children. Super Smash Brothers Wii U, Mario Kart 8, and a new Kirby game, these’re classic games in a kid’s world.

So, which console to buy? The answer isn’t that simple, but you can make a choice based on the above suggestions.
