    "i love...5 Star...Very durable for children....While the ps4 platform itself is a great technological advancement I don't agree with the fact that you buy a game cd for $40 or $50 but then have to pay an additional fee to enjoy playing online with your friends personally I think that is a little ridiculous I appreciate that it's internet capable but I don't agree with having to pay for online gaming after so much money has already been shelled out"

    "4K FTW...4K wow...The kids love the PS4 Pro....The ps4 pro is a good upgrade from the regular PS4 but Sony did make a mistake not puting a Ultra HD Blu-ray player in it like the Xbox One S the reason I went with the pro and not the one s is because of the Playstation only titles.and I have been happy with the way it performs it would have been a bonus if it had the Ultra HD Blu-ray player in the Pro I think the reason why the one s is seals is doing pretty good is because of that Ultra HD Blu-ray"

    "Is good...Best DS...I have had this for about a month now, so far it has treated me really well, I play t in my free time and I just took a flight to Texas and it was great so I think who ever buys this won't be disappointed, the only drawback is for some reason you have to buy the charger seperatly but it is like 15 bucks so I guess that is not too bad...I bought it for my sister, she loved it, I was there when she opened it, and I saw it for the very first time, it is beautiful, when I hold it with my hands it felt solid, not like other reviews that I've readed where the say the upper part of the 3ds wiggles a little, well It was a gift, I'm a 21 years old guy, not I gamer, and I want to buy one for me"

    "Oh wow...5 star...Maybe the HDR and 4k in movies is a recognisable improvement but it'sn't as drastic of an improvement as the jump from standard def on a crt to 1080p on a flat screen.You really can't buy a gaming pc that can do 4k for $500 though so this thing is a great deal for the money but you kinda have to be a techie to get it....However, third party games don't look so great on Switch, so when I am playing on a TV, I love playing these third party games instead on XBOX One X. Perhaps the biggest reason to buy an XBOX, either this X or a S, is gamepass."

    "So Cool...Love it...I was contemplating between buying the PS4, Xbox s and the Xbox x. I ended up settling for the Xbox X because the graphics were better than the S and also because I had old Xbox 360 games and was told by the store rep that were all backward compatible....I have been a Playstation guy since the beginning and in my search for a quality 4k blu ray player to go with upgraded tv and sound...this became the logical choice."
