REVIEW

Microsoft Xbox One ( without Kinect)

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.

Microsoft Xbox One
REVIEW

Microsoft Xbox One

Its high price and imperfect voice control and TV integration keep the Xbox One short of must-have territory, but the inclusion of Titanfall for free (for new purchases) helps Microsoft's console hold the line against Sony's compelling PS4.

Sony PlayStation 4
REVIEW

Sony PlayStation 4

The PlayStation 4's beautiful graphics, blazing interface, near-perfect controller, and lower price give it a slight edge on the Xbox One -- for now.

OnLive
REVIEW

OnLive

The OnLive service streams games to your computer, TV or tablet. It's a really cool concept that we'd recommend checking out, although the games selection isn't amazing, and occasional lag may spoil your fun.

REVIEW

Nintendo 3DS

The Nintendo 3DS' 3D capability is its headline feature, but really it's just the icing on the cake. This feature-packed little console offers tonnes of fun, even if its battery life is slightly pants.

REVIEW

Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim

Microsoft's Xbox 360 Slim offers improvements over its predecessors in every area, with reduced fan noise, a 250GB hard drive and great looks. It's really good value and, with the brilliant selection of HD games available for the platform, we think it's the best console on the market today

Nintendo DSi
REVIEW

Nintendo DSi

The Nintendo DSi is great if you're looking for a new handheld games console, but there's very little point buying one if you already own a DS Lite. It's merely mediocre as an audio player, its VGA cameras are poor and under-utilised, and its battery life is significantly lower than its predecessor's

Nintendo Wii - Game console
REVIEW

Nintendo Wii

If you don't mind the dearth of HD graphics, the Nintendo Wii's combination of motion-sensitive controllers, included Wii Sports titles, and emphasis on fun gameplay make the ultra-affordable console hard to resist.

GamePark Holdings GP2X

We wouldn't recommend the GP2X to casual gamers, but it is a fascinating handheld device that will appeal to a tech-savvy audience or anyone with an interest in homebrew games and applications
