Nintendo Switch vs PlayStation 4 Pro vs Xbox One S: Now It's A Three-way Race to Gaming Supremacy
The big news of the day is that the Nintendo Switch has finally been formally introduced to the world.
The Switch's 6.2-inch display has 1,280 x 720 pixels and 1080p in dock mode. The PS4 Pro ranges from 1,080p to 1,440p while the Xbox One S gets better pixels if played on 1080p or more TVs thanks to its 4K capability.
HDR and 4K Content
The PS4 Pro has a number of games that run on HDR picture processing with 4K content. While the Xbox One S is not capable of 4K gaming, it does allow video output to upscale to 4K. The Switch, meanwhile, does not have 4K gaming.
The Switch only packs 32GB of built-in storage with the capability to expand up to 256GB with a microSD card. The minimum storage space of the PS4 Pro and Xbox One S is 500GB while there are 1TB variations.
The Switch's 2.5 to 6 hours of battery life in portable mode will not cut it for serious gamers and for people traveling for long hours. Controllers for the PS4 and Xbox consoles have been known for having battery issues as well.
The Switch costs $299 which is basically the same as the PS4 Pro and Xbox One S. Many estimated the hybrid console to sell for around $250, so this is a head-scratcher for some especially since Nintendo is known to sell devices at a much lower price than its competitors.
As impressive as the Nintendo Switch looks and as exciting as the potential of its new innovations is, the hybrid console still pales in comparison to the other two consoles. The PS4 Pro was the top-selling console in the U.S. during the holiday season last year for a reason but if Nintendo finds ways to resolve the current issues with the Switch such as poor battery life and little memory space, it may soon outsell the competition provided that there are ample units to go around.
