Consoles – 8th Generation (2012-Present)

The eighth generation of video game consoles began in 2012, and consists of four home video game consoles: the Wii U released in 2012, the PlayStation 4 family in 2013, the Xbox One family in 2013, and the Nintendo Switch family in 2017. The generation offered few signature hardware innovations, but improved the graphics, performance, and online gaming capabilities of the consoles.
