The big trio of video game consoles these days take the form of the Nintendo Switch, PS5 and Xbox. Of course, there are also alternatives like Valve and Analogue. But sometimes, brands you wouldn't associate with gaming decide to give these giants a run for their money with some truly weird and wonderful console designs.

These gaming consoles might not be entirely serious, or at least aren't intended as real competition, but they can be quite ingenious. And while the gaming might not be up to that much, they can sometimes have other uses entirely (if you're not convinced, see our guides to the best Nintendo Switch deals and the best PS5 deals for the best prices on more traditional consoles)
