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 Wii Mini ( Red)
The bare-bones Wii Mini gets rid of many Wii features to just focus on playing disc games, but the stripped-down experience isn't worth the savings.
Sony PlayStation 4

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.

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 ( Blue)
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.
