It has always been a matter of debate as to whichever will be the perfect choice between the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the upcoming Nintendo Switch. For those who still don't have any of the consoles, looking at the hardware usually comes first, but platform exclusivity is the real meat of every console choice.

Since the Christmas is just a few more days away, getting a console to give as a gift is one of the best choices any loving parent, family or friend opt to do nowadays. However, looking at the currently available and upcoming games, things can get pretty confusing and this is what Finder aims to help people with.

Technically, both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One came out just about the same time around November 2015. However, the PlayStation 4 console's got tons of exclusives that even the Xbox One don't come close to half of it.

It is, however, highly subjective whether either console is better than the other. The PlayStation 4 is looking forward to a lot of exclusives, though most of them are the usual JRPG titles and a host other games currently being developed for the PlayStation VR.

Xbox One, on the other hand, don't have that many exclusives. A lot of Xbox One games are now being easily ported to the PC in a very streamlined manner. Still, there are some titles like "Scalebound," "Crackdown," and "Sea of Thieves" that run on the Xbox One as the developers have envisioned them to.

MovieTVTechGeeks pits the Nintendo Switch with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but it is still too early to jump to conclusions given that Nintendo's console isn't even out yet. Nevertheless, things are looking pretty good for Nintendo, especially the hype that's revolving around the first party title "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild."

As for the Nintendo Switch exclusives, it has less than what Microsoft have with its Xbox One. But, Nintendo is well-known for its first party IPs like "Pokémon," "Super Mario," and "Zelda." Some gamers, see the Switch as less of a hardcore gaming console hybrid and more of a limited platform or as a novelty item.

To summarize, the PlayStation 4 has a huge lineup of exclusives and this includes an intimidating number of genres. Not all of them are perfect though and the sheer number of choices are sometimes too intimidating. The Xbox One don't have a lot of exclusives, but Microsoft rarely releases any first party game that dips on metacritical scores lower than 70. There are also tons of great first and third person shooters for it.

Finally, the Nintendo Switch could possibly be perfect for anybody who had been a Nintendo fan since its early days. The company IPs could easily be one of the longest running franchise, and Nintendo has always stood the test of time.
