What game console should I get?

Episode 1393

Kim from Laguna Beach, CA
PlayStation 4

Kim is a gamer and is tired of buying new computers to keep up. Would a console allow her to play the massive multi player online games? Leo says that some MMORPGs are on Xbox and PS4 consoles. It depends on if the games she plays are available, and chances are, they will be. But even then, it comes down to what console she likes best. PlayStation is more popular, and that means it's more likely to have the titles she likes to play. They also have an active community. On the other hand, an Xbox would allow her to stream the games and play them from her Windows 10 PC.

Are hybrid drives a good choice for a gaming system?

Hybrid drives combine both Solid State Drives and Hard Disk Drives. Since SSDs cost more per gigabyte, it's expensive to buy an SSD big enough to hold everything. So the idea behind hybrid drives is that it would combine the speed benefit of SSD with the capacity benefits of the traditional, spinning drive. It puts both drives in one enclosure and uses smart software to determine what data should go on the SSD and what should go on the hard drive.
