Microsoft Xbox One
REVIEW

Microsoft Xbox One

The Xbox One goes beyond gaming with its ambitious live TV integration, but at launch it can't deliver a knockout blow to the PS4 due to a higher price and uneven voice control. We suggest you wait for improvements, but for now, the Xbox One is better suited to forgiving early adopters.

Nintendo 2DS (Red)
REVIEW

Nintendo 2DS ( Red)

At $130, the 2DS offers a huge array of compelling software and makes for a great entry-level gaming system to the uninitiated first-time gamer. Just be sure to buy a protective case along with it, too.

REVIEW

Ouya Game Console

Despite its low price and free-to-try system, the Ouya fails to reach its potential as a disruptive alternative platform.

Nintendo Wii U Basic Set
REVIEW

Nintendo Wii U Basic Set

Despite some clever dual-screen gaming mechanics, the Wii U's lack of compelling exclusive software and an overall unpolished user experience make it tough to recommend in its current state.

REVIEW

Sony PlayStation 3 Super Slim Uncharted 3 Limited Edition Bundle ( 250GB)

The latest PS3 slims down to its smallest size ever while retaining everything we like -- and a few things we don't -- about the PlayStation 3 gaming console.

Nintendo 3DS XL (Red)
REVIEW

Nintendo 3DS XL ( Red)

The supersized Nintendo 3DS XL is a solid portable gaming device that's finally come into its own and should be the first and last 3DS you buy.
