Game Console

Quick Definition

This would be any of the gaming devices that aren't a computer. Most of these need to be connected to a TV in order to be played, but are otherwise like a DVD or Blu ray player that plays video games.

Examples include the Xbox, Wii U or Playstation.

Note that comparing computers to consoles will likely spark a holy war, so you might want to be careful about how you state your opinion.
