We can all agree that Xbox’s name choices for consoled have been rather erratic in the past.

Ninty’s gone and made its brilliant handheld even more portable, and cheaper, with the Nintendo Switch Lite. It also comes in the best bubblegum-inspired colours.
Well so much for the future of game consoles being all-streaming, all the time. Sony’s officially confirmed the name of its next console and has also given us a release window.
