Nintendo New 3DS XL (Red)
REVIEW

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.

REVIEW

Sony PlayStation 3 Super Slim LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham + The Sly Collection 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
REVIEW

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
REVIEW

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
REVIEW

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 2000
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.

Nintendo Wii Mini (Red)
REVIEW

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.

Microsoft Xbox One Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Limited Edition
REVIEW

Microsoft Xbox One Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Limited Edition

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.

Sony PlayStation 4
REVIEW

Sony PlayStation 4

The PlayStation 4's beautiful graphics, smart interface, blazing performance, near-perfect controller and better indie offerings give it a slight edge over the Xbox One as both consoles enter their second year.

REVIEW

Nintendo 3DS Ocarina of Time 3D Special Edition

The Nintendo 3DS successfully offers a glasses-free 3D experience that needs to be seen to be believed. A weak start out of the gate has been all but forgotten thanks to a bevy of compelling releases on online downloadables since launch.

REVIEW

OnLive MicroConsole

As a $99 content-streaming set-top box, OnLive's MicroConsole offers an intriguing low-cost alternative to traditional living-room game consoles--if you have enough bandwidth.

Microsoft Xbox 360 S (250GB) Holiday Bundle (CoD: MW3)
REVIEW

Microsoft Xbox 360 S Holiday Bundle ( 250GB, CoD: MW3)

Though the new Xbox 360 certainly addresses most of the concerns we've had with the versions before it, we don't think it warrants a purchase if you already own an Xbox 360 in working order with an HDMI-out port and a hard drive.

Nintendo DSi XL (Burgundy)
REVIEW

Nintendo DSi XL ( Burgundy)

At the end of the day, the DSi XL is exactly the same as the DSi, so unless you're desperate for more touch-screen real estate, or your vision is impaired, we can't recommend a purchase over the original DSi.

Sony PSP Go (White)
REVIEW

Sony PSP Go ( White)

The PSP Go is a sleek and sexy redesign, but its high price tag and some frustrating caveats mean it's not a must-have upgrade for existing PSP owners--at least for now.

Nintendo DSi Mario Collection ( Metallic Blue)

REVIEW

Sony PlayStation 3 ( 80GB)

Even though PS2 backward compatibility has been dropped from this version, the 80GB PS3 is still a superb Blu-ray player and high-definition game console.

REVIEW

Microsoft Xbox 360 Pro Halo 3 Special Edition ( 20GB)

Now that Blu-ray has become the pre-eminent high-definition standard for discs, the Xbox 360 has yet to support it, but it still remains an excellent game console with a superior game library and online experience.

Sony PSP 3000 ( Black)

While there's probably not enough to get owners of previous the PSP to upgrade, newcomers will find the PSP-3000 to be a solid portable gaming and multimedia device.

REVIEW

Sony PSP 2000 ( Lavender Purple)

While it may not be a must-have upgrade for existing PSP owners, a host of subtle improvements make the latest Sony PSP (aka the PSP 2000) an even better deal for anyone looking for a solid portable gaming and multimedia device.

REVIEW

Nintendo DS ( Electric Blue)

While it lacks the multimedia and graphical finesse of the Sony PSP, the feature-packed Nintendo DS is a worthy successor to the Game Boy Advance--but the new and improved DS Lite is available for the same price.
