    "What is there to say? It's Playstation. Killer exclusives. I got a PS4 slim for Black Friday 2016, but then ended up selling it spring of 2017. I bought a Pro second time around in 2018 so that I could finish playing Horizon Zero Dawn. Incredible graphics. My biggest gripe is that the UI for Spotify on the console is terrible. But I can just control the app from my phone, so it doesn't really matter. I didn't find PS Now worth $20/month, so didn't continue that service past the 7 day trial. The pro gives noticeable sharpness even though i'm not on a 4k tv. I can tell a difference in the anti-aliasing (jaggies). Much crisper image than the slim had. I think this probably only applies to games that are PSPro enhanced."

    "Nintendo wii was a great innovation to gaming. It allowed you to be interactive while playing which was a new concept. This system allowed the whole family to play together and as a parent I love that kids are moving while playing and not just sitting in front of a screen."

    "Like with everything gaming, all the games get better and better, and so do the hardware. The Sega Genesis gaming console does it all. It is well designed, attractive and very easy to use. It comes with 80 built in games to get started and makes playing the modern games easier and more involved.

    "Ugg, no. It's cheap and it shows. Classic games don't play like you remember/expect and it is uncomfortable to hold. With so many modern, good quality consoles out there putting out old games on their hardware why would you bother? I guess if you have a little kid and don't want to risk your 200-300 modern portable you might consider it; but I guarantee most kids won't have any interest in the games on this thing. Also, if you are looking for the best consoles, go fullsized, not handheld."
