PlayStation 5

Do we really need to introduce the PlayStation 5? For the ultimate gaming experience, it's a no brainer. But you knew that already. Unlike its predecessor, it's sleek, immersive and fast, like everything you'd want in a car (or partner), but in a console. And as for the Dualsense controller? It's a game changer.

Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S

With not one, but *two* models to choose from, the next-gen Xbox consoles really do power our dreams. Both systems run a powerful processor unit, but the difference in speed, display and style hoist the Series X up a notch. Saying that, if you're willing to miss out on a few extra perks and settle for the Series S, your wallet might thank you later.
