The newest Playstation 4 Pro is Sony’s gaming console that is similar to the Xbox. The two companies have been rivals for years with the difference between the two systems being console exclusive games. Having Sony capabilities the Playstations can also download and play various apps turning it into a smart device.
The final console system is going to be the Nintendo Switch. This system differs from the previous two because it is able to turn into a handheld device that you can take on the go.
