If you’re a gamer and have been following the latest releases, you’ll know that there have been some pretty exciting releases & announcements recently. From 8-core CPUs to 4K gaming, some of the latest consoles have got it all.
First up we’ve got the Xbox One S. The One S is basically the redesigned version of the Xbox One, however the ’S’ model is 40% smaller than the original Xbox One. This is a great feat, considering that the Xbox One S sports the same 8-core AMD Jaguar CPU and 8GB of DDR3 RAM that the original featured.
One of the best features of the Xbox One S is the fact that it sports a 4K Blu-ray player. As well as this, the console will also upscale non-4K games & content to display at a 4K resolution.
With the console costing £249, for the base model, it’s a great deal for those of you who want to play games in 4K and would also enjoy the use of a 4K Blu-ray player for films and other content.
The PlayStation 4 Slimline, which is the smaller version of the PlayStation 4, has also been released and is very much the “budget” version of the PlayStation console range.
Despite being the Slimline model it actual sports identical specs to the Xbox One S, apart from the lack of 4K compatibility.
The PlayStation 4 Pro is the next generation of PlayStation consoles, and is compatible with the PlayStation VR headset.
The Pro sports the same AMD Jaguar 8-core CPU as the Xbox One S, but boasts an extremely impressive 4.20 teraflops of GPU power – definitely enough to ultra-HD and 4K games, once some are available.
One cool feature of the PS 4 Pro is that it can stream 4K video from services such as YouTube and Netflix, which is great for those of you looking to stream some 4K content on your 4K-ready TVs. However, unlike the Xbox One S, the PS 4 Pro does not feature a 4K Blu-ray player.
The PS 4 Pro retails for around £349 with a 1TB hard drive.
Gaming on these platforms, whichever one you choose, is certainly going to be impressive.
Another platform that features some really impressive games is the Playtech platform. Playtech have a product range that includes casinos, social gaming and fixed odds games, among many others. One example of an online casino website that works well with the Playtech platform is the MansionCasino online casino site.
MansionCasino have an unbeatable selection of games, which includes Marvel-based slots, poker and blackjack, to name a few.
With all of the latest consoles sporting similar specs, the decision of which console to choose really just comes down to whether you’re a PlayStation or an Xbox person.
