Game system questions? Ask an electronics technician


It’s a question that tends to arise more often in older circles, for obvious reasons. But what are game consoles, exactly? Also known as gaming or game systems, these consoles are computer systems specially designed to display and operate interactive video games. Although they don’t always offer the same features as a traditional PC, they are typically built with similar components, like the CPU, random access memory (RAM), and graphics processing units.


Although modern day PCs can be equipped to run even higher-quality games smoothly for a superior user experience, they're also much more expensive than most game systems. Additionally, consoles offer the following advantages:


  • A lack of driver compatibility problems
  • Faster load times (aside from specialized gaming rigs on PC)
  • Uniform components
  • Ease of multiplayer functionality
