Nintendo Switch vs PS4. Which will come out on top in a battle between these two consoles? Both options are exciting in their own way and offer a lot in terms of game design, 3D art, UI, or just a way to chill out, but they offer very different experiences.

The Switch is the latest console from Nintendo, and offers a lower-powered but more versatile gaming experience than the PlayStation – or Xboxes or PCs, for that matter. It's also cheaper and at least a little easier to find in stock too.
