Three of the Best

Games Consoles

Sure, you're back at work. But there should always be time to play. Here are three games consoles, to remind you there's more to life than the daily grind.

Wii U (Above)

With Sony and Microsoft preoccupied with a bout of who’s-got-the-biggest-processor, the Wii showed that it’s what you do with it that counts. Now Nintendo are at it again, with the Wii U set to change the way we play games once more. As we’ve come to expect, the crux of this console is the controller — a touchscreen “GamePad” that merges home and handheld gameplay. And with the first batch of games including Mario and Zelda titles as well as Assassin’s Creed and Mass Effect, you can bet the big boys are taking notes.

PS3 Super Slim

PS3-Super-Slim

While die-hard gamers wait for the PS4, Sony have launched their latest itineration of the PS3 – and it’s been on a strict diet. By redesigning the internal architecture and replacing the disc-fed tray with a sliding top-loading disk cover, the Super Slim is around a quarter lighter than the current model. Also new is a huge 500GB hard drive to go with that gaming, Blu-ray and home media-centre capability. Another bonus: improved ventilation has drastically reduced the disc spinning noise, a bugbear with previous models. Possibly not worth upgrading for – but if you’re new to gaming we can’t think of a better place to start.

Chillblast Fusion Firestorm PC

There’s this erroneous belief that a PC should be used for programmes called “Spreadsheets”, “PowerPoint presentations” and something known as “work”. But if gaming is more your thing, this bad boy will boot up your favourite MMORPG faster than you can say “6Gbps 240GB SSD capable of over 500MB per second and 16GB of Ram”. And, like your car (unless you run an old-school VW), it’s water-cooled, so your desktop won’t burst into flames every time you open fire on enemy forces.
