Microsoft Xbox One S ( 2TB)
The Xbox One S is not just slimmer with a new paint job -- it's better than the One in almost every way.
Nintendo New 3DS XL ( Red)
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.
Nintendo Wii U Deluxe Mario Kart 8 Bundle
The Wii U has shaken off some of its initial growing pains to become a superior kid and family console, with a limited but excellent lineup of exclusive games you won't find anywhere else.
Sony PlayStation 3 Super Slim The Last of Us Bundle ( 500GB)
While it will begin to cede its position to the PS4 in 2015, the PlayStation 3 still delivers impressively strong value for gaming and video entertainment.
Nintendo New 3DS
Nintendo's New 3DS isn't much improved overall, but that new display alone almost makes the purchase worthwhile -- or will do, once it's available outside of Japan.
Sony PlayStation TV
The PlayStation TV sounds great on paper, but out of the gate, it underwhelms as both a gaming and an entertainment box.
Microsoft Xbox One Assassin's Creed: Unity Bundle
The cheaper, no-Kinect version of the Xbox One gives buyers a better deal by eliminating the one part of the console they probably didn't want to begin with -- but the PS4 remains a compelling alternative.
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.
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.
