A video game console is a device that displays a video game by outputting a visual image or video signal. It is essentially a console machine designed primarily for consumers to play video games, as opposed to home computers or arcade machines. Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 4, Steam Machine, Leap TV, and Retro N5 are a few examples of video game consoles. Over the past few years, the gaming console market has gone through several hardware changes. It is also expected that HDTVs with HDMI ports and inherent wireless connectivity, which can support external hard disks, will offer enriched customer experience. Console manufacturers are introducing new devices that are compatible with the latest specifications according to the gamers' demand while improving the gameplay experience.
