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.
1. PS Vita
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.
