We’re just a few months away from a new generation of consoles. As it approaches, I’ll be going back to look at some of the best things to come from this generation. This month marks the release of not only the Xbox One X Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition Console but also The Last of Us Part II PS4 Pro console, so I thought now was a great time to go back and highlight some of the other great consoles that we’ve seen over the years.
Without further adieu, let’s kick things off.
Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch
I wasn’t sure if I should include any Nintendo Switch consoles given it’s only a few years old and you could argue what generation it actually fits into, but the Animal Crossing-themed Nintendo Switch can’t be ignored.
Featuring Tom Nook on a small island, it’s a simple, yet very cute design that works well. It’s easily my favourite of the limited Nintendo Switch consoles.
Star Wars Playstation 4
Sony secured a marketing deal for the release of Star Wars: Battlefront and with that came this awesome Dark Vader-themed PS4.
It’s another simple design but Vader looks awesome. The controller is great too, with the combination of red, black and white fitting the theme perfectly.
Fortnite BattleRoyale Xbox One S
Released at the height of Fortnite’s popularity, the Fornite-themed console is a worthy console to go alongside your royale wins.
The sleek royal purple looks amazing on the Xbox One, and the similarly coloured controller looks great too.
20th Anniversary Playstation 4
To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the original Playstation console, Sony released this marvellous limited-edition Playstation 4.
Looking back on the original Playstation, It certainly doesn’t hold up in the looks department when compared to more modern consoles, but the colour scheme works well on the PS4.
Gears 5 Xbox One X
It makes sense that a great game should have a great console to tie-in with it. This is the case with Gears 5 and the limited edition Xbox One X that was made for its release.
The Gears 5 console is one of the best we’ve seen all generation. Designed to suit one of the landscapes featured in the game, the console simply looks stunning. You can say the same about its matching controller too.
