AMD made a name for itself by counterpoint Intel and other PC hardware manufacturers with its low prices and high performance.

The Xbox brand learned from the Xbox One’s failure and created the world’s most powerful console in the Xbox Series X. The console sells out everywhere in seconds so demand is high, and its even started topping sales charts in the UK so Microsoft is poised for a strong year.
But let's be honest, Xbox shouldn't be the reason you need to buy Microsoft, one of the biggest technology companies in the world.
While its products are expensive, Razer's stock price is not. It currently sits below a dollar, and for a company that makes some of the best PC gaming hardware on the market, it might be undervalued.

6. Electronic Arts
LOL, don't give this one your money, but if you must, EA makes money hand over fist with its Star Wars and Madden licenses, and add to that Apex Legends’ popularity, EA offering competition in the shooter market with Battlefield and its destructible environments, you cannot deny the value of its many properties and licenses. Still, though, go **** yourself EA!
Ubisoft has changed its tactics since its days of constantly releasing broken games and fixing them later. Ubisoft’s titles lately have been high quality, they’ve acquired a license to develop Star Wars games and they were at the head of the next generation push from Microsoft. They’re a solid investment to make. recently shares have fallen, despite a record-setting earnings report. Currently, the stock is under $20, but please do your due diligence first.

11. Take Two Interactive
Take-Two is one of the biggest publishers in the industry. Grand Theft Auto alone generates over 500 million in revenue a year and Take-Two also publishes franchises like Red Dead Redemption and Borderlands, so they should produce strong earnings in the coming years. Their intellectual property alone will increase the companies value as more and more games are adapted for the big screen. At $192, with the right price point, it might be a buy.
What can we say about Nintendo. The Apple of video game companies? Maybe.
Nintendo is one of the big 3 console manufacturers when it comes to gaming and the Switch is one of the best selling consoles of all time. Not only that, but Nintendo is also primed to make more sales due to the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S being constantly sold out everywhere. If you can’t get an Xbox or a Playstation, you can buy a Switch. The Switch is also 200 dollars cheaper, so extra money spent on a console could go to games.
At $81 this stock is nowhere near its full potential. A definite buy.
Sony is not "the Apple of gaming" or anything like that. Sony is Sony. One of the world's leading innovators and producers of technology. So just because you can't get the PS5, don't take that out on your future gains. Because if you're looking to get into the market, and weighing your opinions on game companies, you can't go wrong here.
with a current price of $116, Sony, is going to Mars.
14. Actvision Blizzard
