PlayStation 4 Pro vs Project Scorpio vs Nintendo Switch [Updated]

Brodie Fogg 7 April 2017


Two down, one to go. Should you invest in PS4 Pro or Nintendo Switch or hold out for a Scorpio announcement?

UPDATE 7.4.17: Eurogamer's Digital Foundry recently visited Microsoft's Redmond campus for a sneak peek at Project Scorpio and got its hand on the upcoming console's official specifications. We've updated the table below in light of this.

At September PlayStation Meeting, Sony beat its console competitors to the punch by announcing November availability for the PlayStation 4 Pro. That makes Sony the only console manufacturer with a fresh horse in the race this Christmas, with Project Scorpio and Nintendo Switch arriving in 2017.

That raises an interesting question. Do you potentially jump the gun and fork out the cash for the PlayStation 4 Pro in November, or keep holding on for more Scorpio and Nintendo Switch news?

To help you make that decision, we've compared the three consoles side-by-side.

*Note: Most of what we know about Project Scorpio is still rumours and hearsay.
