Nintendo New 3DS XL Majora's Mask Edition
REVIEW

Nintendo New 3DS XL Majora's Mask Edition

The 3DS XL's improved 3D head-tracking is a big step up and its performance boost more makes a noticeable difference. A few head-scratching design choices prevent us from falling for the New 3DS XL, but this is still the best Nintendo portable to get.

REVIEW

Microsoft Xbox One with Kinect Assassin's Creed: Unity Bundle

While the PS4 remains our overall preferred choice in the next-gen console race, the Xbox One's significant first-year course corrections -- including a welcome holiday price drop -- make it a better deal than ever, and a much better bargain than when it first debuted.

REVIEW

Sony PlayStation Vita 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

Microsoft Xbox 360 E Kinect ( 4GB)

The Xbox 360 remains a great video and gaming console, but fans will be better served by older 360 bundles -- or waiting for the Xbox One.
