Modern video game consoles have evolved in a way similar to modern cellular phones. They are so much more than simply games consoles, they are a part of our daily lives. We don’t know about you, but we feel like our video game console is a part of the furniture, a part of the family even! There are so many more functions these modern consoles can perform these days, aside from simply playing games.
These all in one entertainment machines are massively important as a way of improving our experience in the home. They offer not just the ability to play brand new video games but also allows us to do so many other great things as well. Here is a list of some of the most awesome, and useful things our video game consoles allow us to do.
Play games from other countries
There are so many awesome video games available these days, and many of them differ slightly from country to country. The best thing about modern consoles is that many of them, like the Nintendo Switch, are region-free, allowing users to play games from all over the world. You may have limitations due to the country your account is in, but, by creating a new account, and choosing a different country, you can play whatever games you’d like.
Another thing we love about modern game consoles is that they allow us to watch television through them. Many modern consoles have TV access in-built, as well as apps like Netflix and catch-up television too. And you can actually turn on your TV along with your game console as well. This makes the TV experience so much easier, and allows you to use your console for television as well as gaming – all in one smart box!
Access your smartphone
We understand how important smartphones are these days. They allow us to live our lives the way we want to, and they pretty much dictate our day to day activities. It’s fair to say, we would be well and truly lost without our smartphones. So, one of the most useful things modern games consoles do is that they allow us to access our smartphones. For example, if you download the PlayStation App for your smartphone, you’ll be able to use your smartphone as a second screen and do all sorts using both console and phone in tandem. Not only is this useful, but it’s also very cool too!
Modern gaming has become a much more sociable experience than it has ever been before. And, a really cool feature of modern consoles is that you can share games with others, without having to have a physical copy of the game. By adding your profile to a friend’s account, they will be able to access the games you have in your ‘Gameshare’ feature. Then you can compare progress and success!
These are just a few of the awesome things you never knew your game console could do. These are all awesome things that will help you to enjoy your console even more, and will help make it the complete entertainment package as well!
