REVIEW

Sony PlayStation Vita (2000) Borderlands 2 Bundle
REVIEW

Sony PlayStation Vita Borderlands 2 Bundle ( 2000)

Two years in, the PlayStation Vita has come of age and become a refined piece of hardware and an excellent place to play a lot of games. You don't need one, but it's really fun and worth its price.

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.
