The next-generation PlayStation and Xbox were released in the fall of 2020, and if you aren’t already excited for a particular model, it’s a complicated time to decide what to buy. Which games you like to play, what level of graphics performance you value, how you play online, and even which system is available to buy all go into deciding which console is best for you.

Sony PlayStation 5, the best ps5

Sony PlayStation 5

The best PS5
This version of the PS5 has a disc drive so you can watch UHD Blu-ray movies, as well as play new or used PS5 and PS4 game discs. The rest of the features and hardware are the same as in the other version.

Sony PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, same, but no disc drive

Sony PlayStation 5 Digital Edition

Same, but no disc drive
The Digital Edition doesn’t include a disc drive, so you can’t watch Blu-rays or take advantage of new or used games, or old PS4 discs. But if you’re comfortable going all digital, it has the same graphics, CPU, memory, and storage hardware as the standard PS5 does.
Another good choice
Microsoft Xbox Series X, the best xbox

Microsoft Xbox Series X

The best Xbox
Get the Series X if you’ll use it with a 4K TV (now or eventually), want the absolute best in graphics like raytraced lighting effects, or if you want a disc drive for games and movies.

Microsoft Xbox Series S, less for less

Microsoft Xbox Series S

Less for less
The Series S doesn’t take full advantage of TVs with 4K resolution, and it lacks a disc drive, which is a downside if you own a lot of physical games or movies or like to buy them used. But it still lets you play the new generation of games, and it’s a great value paired with a Game Pass Ultimate subscription.
Another good choice
Nintendo Switch, for people who like to play games everywhere

Nintendo Switch

For people who like to play games everywhere
If you want a console that you can disconnect from the TV and take with you, or if you just prefer Nintendo’s games, the Switch is for you.

Nintendo Switch OLED Model , the most premium switch experience

Nintendo Switch OLED Model

The most premium Switch experience
The Switch OLED Model has a beautiful screen and other improvements that make it worth the extra money, but it’s probably not the best option for younger kids.
Another good choice
Nintendo Switch Lite, a lighter, handheld-only version

Nintendo Switch Lite

A lighter, handheld-only version
The Switch Lite is smaller and lighter, but its lack of TV support means you can’t play multiplayer games with family or friends on the couch.
Another good choice
SanDisk microSDXC card for Nintendo Switch (128 GB), download more games

SanDisk microSDXC card for Nintendo Switch (128 GB)

Download more games
The 128 GB Switch card will give you plenty of room for screenshots and games once you fill up the Switch’s 32 GB of storage.
