Even the best of the best Gaming Consoles will not check all the boxes for your gaming needs but owning a Gaming Console is a good option for people who are into gaming but want an easy plug-and-play device and do not care much for the minuscule details in the game’s graphics.
It is a tedious task to figure out which Gaming Console will fit your needs and, more importantly, your budget as they tend to start from an economical price range and can quickly go upto half a lakh.
In this article, we have listed the best Gaming Consoles for every budget and stated what they offer in that price range.
|Serial No.||Console||Link to Buy||Price|
|Amkette Evo Fox Game Box||Official Website||₹9,999|
|Xbox Series S||Amazon||₹31,299|
|Play Station 5 Digital Edition||Official Website||₹39,990|
|Xbox Series X||Flipkart||₹49,990|
1) Amkette Evo Fox Game Box
The Amkette Evo Fox Game Box is priced at Rs 9,999, making it our entry-level Gaming Console in the budget department. The Evo Fox Game Box can offer you the Android Gaming on your T.V. instead of looking down on your smartphone’s screen to play the same game. This Gaming Console can be a pretty sweet entertainment Hub as well, as you can download OTT Platform-based Apps from the Google Play Store and watch your favourite shows/movies easily.
Amkette offers a decent amount of specification on the hardware front. It comes packed with a Quad-Core processor, a Mali G31 3D Graphics Card, 4 G.B. RAM, and a 32 G.B. memory, so if you want to play a lot of Android-based games that have additional data downloads, then we feel that the 32 G.B. Storage of this Gaming Console will be used up pretty quickly, but that is fine as you have the option to insert microSD to store data and games easily. Also, the Evo Fox Game offers 4k Ready resolution output, which is a great feature in this budget range.
- Economical to buy
- Supports 4K Resolution gaming
- Supports all high-end Android games
- microSD card enabled for extra storage
- Easy plug-and-play
- 4K resolution lag in selected game titles like Asphalt (8 and above), Real Racing 3, etc.
- Controller quality is poor
- It runs on the outdated Android 9.0
2) Nintendo Switch
It has been nearly five years since it launched in the gaming industry, and we still feel that this Gaming Console still has a lot to offer users with its humongous games library and the wireless joysticks famously known as Joy-Cons.
The Switch comes with a 6-inch, 720p screen, showing fabulous colours even when viewing it off-angle. The resolution is not that powerful on paper like the other Gaming Consoles that provide higher resolution output, but it’s awe-inspiring for a Nintendo gaming device. The Switch Dock is the port that charges this Gaming Console, but it also provides an HDMI output so you can connect it to your T.V. and play games at Full H.D output, making it a hybrid Gaming Console that is both portable and nonmobile while plugging it on a T.V.
Packed with many classic games like the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Tennis Aces, Puyo Puyo Tetris, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, Splatoon 2, and the excellent Super Mario Odyssey, we feel that this off-beat console is a good choice for gamers who want to experience unique games and this Gaming Console’s capability to be portable and be taken anywhere makes it a sweet deal compared to home Gaming Consoles. Also, the addition of Joy-Cons adds to the immersive experience of gaming.
- Stunning, creative innovation
- Amazing game library
- Concrete build grade
- Joy-Cons deem comfy using in numerous layouts
- Poor battery life
- Online service is poor
- Fragile kickstand

3) Xbox Series S
We feel that this console checks most of the checkboxes regarding Gaming Consoles, as you won’t find such a power-packed and compact Gaming Console under Rs. 40,000 being offered by its competitors.
The Xbox’s Series S, powered by a custom SSD, works with the ingenious system-on-a-chip (SOC) technology to deliver gameplay up to 120FPS on one of the smallest home Gaming Consoles ever. With the Quick Resume, you can easily swap between numerous games and continue the game immediately from where you left it off.
Powered with AMD’s Zen 2 and RDNA 2, this Gaming Console provides realistic lighting, shades and true-to-life reflections to form vibrant, live worlds in the game.
Xbox Series S is the first Gaming Console to deliver the gaming experience in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, improving gameplay with mesmerising graphics and fantastic audio output.
- Small and packed design
- Reasonable price
- It comes with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos
- Speedy SSD diminishes the game’s loading times considerably
- Xbox Game Pass is too sweet of a deal to play big Game Titles at an affordable price
- 364GB storage is small
- Expandable Storage is expensive
- Game resolution maxes out at 1440p
- It does not come with Disc Drive
- Wi-Fi 6 is not present
4) Play Station 5 Digital Edition
Same as the PS5 Disc Edition but without a Disc Drive makes this Gaming Console fall in the category of a high-end device, or we can also say the benchmark in the gaming console just like your Xbox Series X. PS5 is one of the best gaming consoles that the gaming industry can offer. With the digital edition being Rs.10,000 cheaper than its disc edition we find this to be an excellent device for your hardcore gaming needs.
PS5’s Ray Tracing fetches new ranks of authenticity with true-to-life shades and reflections in Sony’s exclusive game titles.
The DualSense particularly gleams in PS5’s Astro Playroom, which is a free and pre-installed game created especially to show what Sony’s new controller is capable of. In this amazing game, you can sense and listen to the small mark of sand grains when you wander through a typhoon, or you get to undergo a silky gliding feeling when you are sliding over ice, just to quote a few examples of what all this next-gen Gaming Console’s controller and games can offer.
From tugging on a rope to flying around in a jetpack spawns an extraordinarily precise level of feedback in your hands. This console is indeed a next-gen Gaming Console in the truest sense. It offers something so unique that you need to witness it yourself and not just go by our words.
The controller also offers a built-in mic and speaker, so you do not need to worry about plugging in headphones when you play online games with your friends.
- Captivating 4K visual output
- Better U.I than PS4
- DualSense controller, haptic feedback, and adaptive triggers are too good to miss out on for an unforgettable experience.
- Sony’s exclusive titles like Spider-Man Miles Morales, Ghost of Tsushima, Astro Playroom, Horizon Forbidden West, etc. are indeed next-gen games
- Too big in size to fit around
- Noisy console
- Exclusives titles are great but less in numbers
- 667GB is too less of useable storage
- Does not have the ‘Quick Resume’ feature like Xbox Series X and S
- Game loading lags compared to Xbox Series X and S
5) Xbox Series X
If we had to highlight three key differences between Series X and Series S, it would be the following-
- Xbox Series X supports 4K UHD
- Comes with Disc Drive
- Bigger Storage
Otherwise, both have the same U.I, the exact controller, and the exact Xbox custom SSD and Velocity Architecture that allows features like Quick Resume and more significantly, both can play exactly the same games. But, Series X offers tough competition to Sony’s PS5 when it comes to hardware as the Series X offer more powerful hardware compared to the Sony’s PS5.
- ‘Quick Resume’ is faster than Xbox Series S
- Can deliver up to 8K Resolution and up to 120Hz refresh rate
- Xbox Game Pass is too sweet of a deal to play big Game Titles at an affordable price
- Fast SSD
- HDMI 2.1 output for next-gen T.Vs
- Backwards-compatible games
- Provides HDR to older games from older generation Xbox Consoles
- Blu-ray player
- No noise at all
- Very few games use ray tracing.
- Exclusive games like Halo, Flight Simulator, and Forza Horizon 5 are only worthwhile to play. But they can also be played on a Microsoft Windows P.C/Laptop, making them less exclusive for this Gaming Console.
