Gaming Consoles

Q: Which gaming console is right for you?

A: When you are looking at buying a video game console, there are three main players in this market – the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch. Choosing the right console can be confusing and difficult, and your choice will depend on your answers to a number of questions. You need to consider things like – who are you buying it for, what is your budget, do you own a 4K TV, do you play in real life or online and what types of games do you want to play? The PlayStation4 is perfect for teenagers and above and has great diversity of titles with an amazing selection of platform-exclusive and single-player story-led games. The Xbox One offers is a great option for older children, teens and Minecraft fans in particular – as Microsoft acquired the brick building game a few years ago. The Nintendo Switch is generally thought to be the best for families and younger gamers, with a great catalogue of family friendly games. Qantas Shopping has all of these portable and handheld game consoles instore for you to buy online – plus if you are after more intel, have a look at some of our FAQS.

PS4 Gaming Consoles

Q: Can I use a PlayStation4 Pro without a 4k TV?

A: This high-performance games console really was designed with 4K televisions in mind. In fact, the primary selling point of the PlayStation4 Pro was that it can run games at much higher resolutions than the standard PS4 if you have an Ultra HD display. That being said, you can of course use a PS4 Pro on a 1080p screen (which is standard High Definition TV). However, there are benefits to those playing on 1080p screens – the PS4 Pro plays every standard PS4 game there is, but they’re just a little more supercharged to enable better visual effects and a higher frame rate compared with a standard PS4.

XBox Gaming Consoles

Q: What is difference between Xbox One X and Xbox One S

A: The Xbox One S provides the best value in games and entertainment.

Nintendo Switch Gaming Console

Q: Can you play Nintendo DS games on Nintendo Switch console?

A: At this stage the Nintendo Switch is not backwards compatible with other Nintendo consoles, which means you can’t play Nintendo 3DS or Wii U games.

Q: Does Nintendo Switch work without WiFi?

A: Yes, the Nintendo Switch does work without WiFi, except in the beginning when you set it up and need to create or link a Nintendo account to the Nintendo Store. After that, you don’t necessarily need WiFi – but it is highly recommended to keep your gaming experience optimal. WiFi is also necessary for the periodic software updates.
