Which console is the most powerful? On paper, Microsoft’s Project Scorpio console is poised to become the most powerful system with its 6 teraflops of performance, but it isn’t slated to release until the end of 2017.

Which console offers the most storage space? The console that currently offers the most storage space out of the box is the 2TB version of the Xbox One S. It’s worth mentioning that you can swap out the storage drives on the PlayStation 4 consoles, which is something Xbox One systems currently can’t do. The Switch also features expandable storage via its MicroSDXC card slot.

Which console is the heaviest? Without knowing the weight of Project Scorpio, the original Xbox One is the heaviest of the bunch, weighing 7.8 pounds.
