Nintendo 3DS
REVIEW

Nintendo 3DS ( Cosmo Black)

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.

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 an edge over the Xbox One -- though that edge is ever-shrinking.

REVIEW

Microsoft Xbox One

While the PS4 remains our overall preferred choice in the game console race, the Xbox One's significant course corrections and solid exclusives make it a compelling alternative.
