2020 saw Sony and Microsoft both launch their much-awaited consoles head to head, making it quite difficult for buyers to decide which console to pick up. However, if you’re not interested in either of the two consoles here are four new gaming consoles hoping to give the console bosses some competition.


In 2017, Atari announced it was re-entering the game-console market, the company will soon be launching its new gaming console the VCS, a hybrid device that's both a console and a PC.

Its design has striking similarities with the original Atari but has retained wood grain front and a non-boxy design.

Users can play classic Atari games and the console also runs operating systems like Windows, Linux, and Chrome. The best part is that you can also stream movies and TV shows in 4k HDR, reports T3.

The most interesting part of the console is its design that looks like you are carrying a 'six-pack' wherever you wish to set up. The BL6 is battery-powered which the company claims lasts up to two hours. The console has storage for its two included controllers, as well as two slots to hold your beer cans.


GPD WIN 3 looks similar to Nintendo Switch offering a 5.5" size screen and basic HD resolution. It is equipped with a QWERTY touchpad that slides out of the bottom of the device. GPD WIN also lets users play PC games.

The WIN 3 is equipped with USB options, including a Type-C port and dual vibration motors. Its extreme vibration effect and fine vibration will make you feel more immersed in the game.
