Video Game Consoles You Are Dying To Have

Oct 31, 2007
Do you love video games? Then don't waste another minute--start saving up to purchase your favorite video game console. Video games can be a lot of fun for children and adults alike, and once your purchase a console for playing these videos games, you will find that it provides hours of entertainment.

One of the most popular ways to play video games is on a PC, or personal computer. Actually, with this method of playing video games, you don't need to purchase a typical video game console; you just need a PC, which many people have anyway. However, you will need to make sure that your PC is ready to play video games. You'll need the appropriate amount of memory, bandwidth, access to the Internet, and graphics card. If you aren't sure if your PC is ready for playing video games, check the back of the game's package to see the recommended conditions or talk to a computer representative.

If you don't want to use your computer for playing video games, there are a number of consoles on the market. One of the oldest and largest video gaming companies is Nintendo. Nintendo started many years ago and has since evolved. They released the GameCube a few years ago to update their video gaming system in order to compete with the other two major names on the market, Xbox and PlayStation. However, the GameCube was not as popular as they would have liked, so more recently, they released the Wii, which uses blu ray technology, nunchuck controllers, and a Wii remote. Many people consider this to be a very advanced gaming system.

PlayStation is another large video gaming company. Their major consoles are the PlayStation 2 (PS2) and PlayStation 3 (PS3). Some video games are only available for the PlayStation, so if you want a particular game, make sure you have purchased the correct console.

Of course, your other major option is the Xbox. Xbox has a number of great video games, but the most major one that people play is Halo, which is a first person shooter game. Many people believe Halo to be superior to the first person shoot games available for PlayStation, although this subject is highly debatable.

Whatever gaming system you choose to purchase, realize that video games themselves are not cheap if you choose to purchase new video games. However, many stores sell used games for less than half the price, so you can better spend your money on accessories for you gaming system, like wireless controllers and microphones. Remember that a video gaming system is an investment. It may be expensive at first, but it can provide hours of entertainment.
