The new generation was released in late 2020, and both Microsoft and Sony decided to bet on two versions of their consoles. In this guide, we will list the best deals. If you are not interested in leaving soon for the new generation, we have here also offers of the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Below we list the best deals from various stores so you choose which one pleases you best. Due to high demand and low availability, some consoles are priced inflated, but that may change in the coming weeks.
We also have other guides with older consoles as seen above. In this list, we include models such as Xbox 360 and PS3, as well as several retro video games that have marked generations.
The offers are listed in order from the cheapest to the most expensive. Of course, constant price variation can end up messing up the order.
Microsoft Xbox One S
If you're the type to buy games on physical media to get discounts from big stores, then Xbox One S All Digital Edition isn't good for you. The good news is that the price difference for the traditional Xbox One S is small, and maybe more business for many.
Your hardware is the same as the version without a Blu-ray player. This will have the same performance and services as the Xbox game pass. Compared to Xbox One X there is a big jump in performance. This is aimed more at those who have a Full HD TV or do not turn it on to play in 4K.
Sony PlayStation 4 Slim
Want sony's best option these days? So it's the PS4 Slim you should choose. It costs almost the same as the Xbox One S and offers slightly more powerful hardware, allowing you to run more games in Full HD resolution and with a more stable frame rate.
However, the biggest differential of the Sony console is in its exclusive games, different from Microsoft which launches all pc games. With PS4 Slim you can play God of War, Uncharted, Bloodborne, The Last of Us, and several others. Sony has a similar service to the Xbox Game Pass, called PlayStation Now, but is not available in Brazil.
Nintendo's only console on the list, the Nintendo Switch has as a great differential the possibility of being, at the same time, portable and desktop, besides having an exclusive library of titles. Another differential is the joysticks, or joycons, which can be used in various ways.
It also has NVIDIA Tegra GPU modified for the Switch. Using the console on the television can result in some fall in frame rate, but not enough to disrupt gameplay. To compensate, it offers several titles such as Zelda Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Super Mario Odyssey.
Microsoft Xbox Series
We have reached the latest generation of consoles and we have here the Xbox Series S, being the most accessible for those who want to be prepared for the future and have access to all the games that will be released in the coming years. In theory, your hardware is weaker than that of the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, but by coming with the more current architecture, faster processor and memory, plus SSD, we will perform better.
It delivers a third of the graphics power of the Xbox Series X and costs on average $2,000 less, which is a pretty considerable difference. If you don't make a point of playing in 4K, this new Console from Microsoft promises games running on Quad HD at 60 fps and even Full HD at 120 fps, something impossible with Xbox One. It's good to remember that it has no entrance to Blu-ray discs.
Sony PlayStation 5
The PS5 was released in two versions: one standard and one without a Blu-ray disc player. Unlike Microsoft's strategy, the new PlayStations are completely equal in terms of graphics power, and even the size of the SSD is the same. The price difference reaches only R $ 500, and for some may not be worth taking the most expensive one.
The PlayStation 5 is between the two Microsoft consoles in a power-out. It is 150% more powerful than the Series S and 20% weaker than the Series X, which costs the same. The advantage of the PS5 lies in the exclusives that shouldn't win PC versions —like the new God of War, which arrives in 2022.
Microsoft Xbox Series X
We've closed our guide with Xbox Series X, the most powerful of the new generation. It has 20% more graphics power than the PS5, even bringing the same architecture as AMD—but on the other hand, it has a slower SSD. That is, with Sony's you will have games loading faster, and in Microsoft will have greater fluidity in some games. What's more important?
The Series X costs the same as the disc version of the PS5, which can make life difficult for Sony in the next generation, but the diskless version is $500 cheaper and this may be a decisive differential for some in choosing a new console.
