Everyone is pretty pumped about the new consoles being released later this year, and rightfully so. There are some great things coming down the pipe in the near future that we can hardly wait for. What if you’re just not excited about the next generation hardware yet or want to stretch your buck a bit further though? Those new pieces of hardware aren’t exactly affordable for everyone on launch.

Well there are plenty of options out now and it’s easier than ever before to find older consoles, handhelds and PC hardware at great prices. Regardless of what you’re currently focused on;  old, new or you’re just working on a massive back catalog of titles until the new consoles come out  there is no need to rush into the future. With great older hardware available, or even the new and woefully under-appreciated Wii-U someone out there has whatever it is you might be looking for. We’ve got a whole industry’s history worth checking out before November.

The Vita is a real treat, great graphics, a fairly nice catalog of games and coupled with some solid compatibility to other Sony devices you can't really go wrong. Syncing the Vita with the PS3 and PS4(eventually,) is a great feature that other handhelds don't do and will connect to your PSN+ membership if you've got one. A great advantage to this piece of hardware is you’ve got a portable gaming device that has better graphics than the PS2 in your pocket. As long as you've got access to wifi you will also get a great portable media device that will play movies, music along plenty of other media you decide to drop on it.

    • Annon76

      you’re right they almost suck as bad as these ass clowns

  • Tim Green


  • John Ken

    Isn’t this like every platform on the market?

  • Alphamatroxom

    Ouya? Shield? Playstation 2? Did you run out of things to write about? This is a fucking troll list

    • Xaxal_Ravenguard

      Ouya and Shield maybe, but don’t go dissing the PS2.

  • John

    This article is retarded.

  • Rivethead

    Better, more accurate title:
    “Every game system you could go out and purchase right now if you don’t want the next Xbox of PS4”

  • Glenn Rhodes

    The article should have been the only alternatives to ps4 and xbox one. Because the best and only real alternative is a computer.

    • Arthur Sataine

      If all the processing power wasn’t used for other things than gaming, I’d agree. As it stands, it is marginally better.

  • merwanor

    Should also mention that being a PC gamer is actually much cheaper in the long run, because of steam sales you can get some games for crazy low prices. If I had bought all the games on my steam library for a console I would have spent at least 3 or 4 times as much money. So the platform may be more expensive, but you get that value back from games, even the retail prices are lower than console prices.

    Beach pls
    I can live with my Dreamcast forever

  • yuv

    worst article i have ever read

  • tito

    I’m done buying new consoles they need lower the price for games and shit.

  • Sebastian Stroud

    Stop being retarded.

  • Scott Gilmour

    I prefer the Wii u.

  • Ramoncito Millanxd

    Ouya? Ipad? Playstation 2? The best is PS Vita, Project Shield, PS3 and Xbox 360, no more.

  • Bob Horvath

    How about: going outside, getting laid, having a life outside of gaming. Oh, and maybe the “steam box” if it comes out.

  • Red Flame Fox

    Lol, worst article ever.

  • John Obvich

    10 is PC? What a fail list. If you got off your a@@ and learned how to build/upgrade your own computer, you would have a much stronger and faster “console”

  • sublimetalmsg

    Who sits and games on a ipad for 5-6 hours? Mobile games shouldn’t be on the list. Video games > Mobile Games imo. only reason they even sell is mostly little kids not knowing any better. Shield doesn’t count that a different animal now.
