If you’re in the market for a new gaming console, then you’ve probably been hearing about the Xbox One. But if not, here’s what to know: The Xbox One is one of the newest and coolest consoles on the market today. It has plenty of features that make it stand out from its competitors, including 4K HDR video playback and compatibility with Windows 10 PCs. However, there are other options available as well. In this article, we will explore some of the best Xbox one alternatives and why they could be better than Microsoft’s latest console…
This blog post talks about six different Xbox one alternatives that are currently on the market (or coming soon). This includes Nintendo Switch, Sony PlayStation 5 Pro.
Here Are The 6 Best Xbox One Alternatives Of 2021
1. Nintendo Switch
2. PlayStation 4 Pro
3. Xbox One S
4. PlayStation VR
5. Oculus Rift (PC)
6. HTC Vive
Features Of These Alternatives:
This Xbox one alternative is a console-handheld hybrid. It brings together the best features of both platforms and manages to outshine its competitors in many ways. For example, it has an extensive game library that includes all Nintendo classics and plenty of third-party titles as well. A neat feature is that you can play multiplayer games with friends (or other players) using just one Switch device…
The article talks about how the switch does better than Microsoft’s Xbox One S when it comes to being able to play multiplayer games right on your TV without requiring any additional devices. The author also lists six alternatives for different gaming preferences – although they are not numbered like bullet points or anything, so this might need some editing work!
PlayStation 4 Pro
Sony’s PlayStation Pro is the only console that offers a true gaming experience. It can play all PS games with added graphics and speed, which makes it much easier for those who want to use their TV as an extension of PC or mobile device gameplay. The downside? You need a large TV screen and you have to buy your own controller – but not every gamer will require these things!
PlayStation has long been known as being gamers’ go-to platform because of its excellent selection of exclusive titles like Horizon Zero Dawn and Uncharted: Lost Legacy (not saying this part needs editing). Plus, if you’re looking for something different from Xbox One S…well, Nintendo Switch does not offer nearly as many exclusives compared to Sony’s
Xbox One S Alternatives
The Xbox One S is the current generation standard for gaming consoles, and it’s down to either a PS or an Xbox. But what if you’ve already got your hands full with other devices? Here are some alternatives that do not require as much set-up!
* NEOGEO Mini – $50-$80 USD:
If you want something portable and affordable (so long as you’re okay without having any games included), then this console might be up your alley. It plays all classic NEO GEO titles in crisp HD and has built-in wireless controller functionality so there’s no need for extra purchases like wires or batteries. Definitely, one of the best options out there when considering the price point, but also versatility since there are no exclusives.
* Nintendo Switch – $300+ USD:
This console may not be the best choice for those who want a ton of modern titles, but if you’re looking more to play some classics like Mario Kart or Goldeneye 0077, then this is one of the better options. With a price point that’s just on par with an Xbox One S and most games being cheaper than their PS counterparts, it might seem like the clear winner in terms of value as well! The downside? It only works at home because there aren’t any built-in wireless capabilities present. If your internet connection has poor signal strength (or doesn’t work when you go out), then this device will never connect outside without WiFi.
* PlayStation VR – $350+ USD:
This is the most expensive choice on this list, but that’s because it has one of the best libraries out there for those who want to experience games in a whole new way. It comes with two Move controllers and six different virtual reality experiences pre-installed, so you don’t have to spend an additional dime if all you’re looking for are some fun titles! The downside? You’ll need a PlayStation Camera to get started as well which pushes up the price even more when combined with other necessities like a controller or charging station. This headset can also be used without any PS consoles whatsoever, making it versatile and easy enough for anyone to enjoy!
A PC may seem like your next best choice, but if you’re looking for something a little more affordable and accessible this is the best way to go. The only downside? It doesn’t come with any controllers or games of its own so it’s recommended that you buy one separately in order to start playing your favorite titles!
Meanwhile, an Xbox One will cost around $200 (or cheaper) when bought used on Amazon. These are also great as they can be hooked up with TVs easily through HDMI cables and don’t have compatibility issues like some other devices out there do. They’re perfect choices for those who love shooting zombies in zombie-themed VR games or want to experience space exploration without leaving their living room!
Finally, Nintendo Switch may seem expensive at first glance due to making it versatile and easy enough for anyone to enjoy!
Oculus Rift (PC)
The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset that does not require a console to play games. It costs $399 and includes both motion controllers for an immersive experience, although there are plenty of compatible third-party options available on the market as well! Games such as Vanishing Realms: Rite of Steel or Arizona Sunshine let you explore fantasy worlds in which zombies roam free. There’s also Eve: Valkyrie with its VR dogfighting action – it offers players unparalleled immersion into the rich world of New Eden like no other game before has been able to do thus far!
*Oculus Rift (PC) can be used without buying Xbox one 2021.
*Xbox One will cost around $200 when bought used on Amazon.
HTC Vive (PC)
The Vive is a virtual reality headset that was made in collaboration with PC maker HTC. Unlike the Rift, it requires an expensive PC to use – so be prepared for some big costs upfront! However, this also means you can customize your setup as much as you want and it comes with two motion controllers too. The games are more immersive than ever before thanks to its room-scale technology which allows players to walk around within their play area.
* HTC Vive (PC) needs Xbox one 2020’s powerful computer
* Costs $800 on Amazon when bought new; not worth if only interested in VR gaming
* PlayStation VR (PSVR) has fewer requirements: just plug into PS console and start playing
* Costs $400 on Amazon when bought new
* The PSVR is the most popular VR headset in terms of sales numbers; good for gamers who don’t want to spend a fortune, but it’s limited by what Sony has allowed developers to do with its hardware
* Oculus Rift (PC) is similar to Vive, cheaper and less powerful than HTC’s offering at ~$600 from retailers like Best Buy. It requires an expensive PC too though! The Oculus Touch controllers are also sold separately (~$200). Like other headsets, you’ll need an Xbox 2020 controller Xbox one 2019 or keyboard and mouse combo if you’re going that route instead. With all those extras needed upfront, this may not be the best option for gamers on a budget
* The HTC Vive is expensive and requires an Xbox 2020 controller Xbox one 2019 PC with powerful graphics cards. It’s generally considered the most capable VR headset, but it has its downsides too: you need both an Xbox 2020 controller Xbox one 2019, or keyboard and mouse combo if you’re going that route instead
* Sony Playstation VR (PSVR) may be more affordable than Oculus Rift ($400 new), but it doesn’t have as many games available at this time; good for gamers who don’t want to spend so much money
