    Simulator Games and Games consoles! 10th Jun 17 at 5:38 PM
    Hi all I am not to technical so please be gentle with me, I have a few railway simulator games which I play on my pc. The trouble is it can be really slow sometimes, I know that I can have my pc upgraded but was wondering if there are any games consoles that would play these simulators?

    The name of the games would help as there maybe console versions available.

    Did you look here

    Alternatively, you do not list the spec of your PC, there may be a small upgrade, e.g CPU or SSD

    Not that I'm aware of, the only train simulator I can think of is A-train on the older 360. The developers behind these simulators are generally quite small so developing console versions is a risk particularly as it needs a lot of optimisation. Farming simulator did get a console release but that's unusual.
