Nintendo Super NES Classic Edition

The SNES Classic is a nearly perfect retro console that’s a slam-dunk recommendation for everyone -- provided you can find one.

Sega Genesis Flashback

AtGames' newest Sega Genesis retro console adds HDMI and improved wireless controllers, and even plays original cartridge games, but it ain't no NES Classic.

Atari Flashback 8 Gold

The latest Atari 2600 retro console from AtGames offers dozens of Atari 2600 games in a box with HDMI output and wireless controllers.

Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch is a solid piece of hardware that delivers an impressive gameplay experience in a small chassis. But a shallow roster of launch games beyond Zelda along with no concrete plan for legacy retro games leaves the Switch feeling more like a blank slate of unfulfilled potential on day 1.

Super Retro Boy

The Super Retro Boy is a portable game console that lets you play your favorite Game Boy cartridges.

Sony PlayStation 4 Slim

The PS4 Slim is a deja vu game console: great for gamers on a budget, not quite as good as the PS4 Pro and skippable for any existing PlayStation 4 owner.

Sony PlayStation 4 Pro

The PlayStation 4 Pro only shows noticeable improvements in a limited number of the games we were able to test, but that could change with titles coming in the months and years ahead.

Nintendo NES Classic Edition

Nintendo's little self-contained mini console plays 30 of the best NES games ever made, making it a fun nostalgia trip for Nintendo fans and a no-brainer stocking stuffer.

Analogue Nt Mini

The Analogue Nt Mini sounds like a retro gamer's dream -- but this shrunk-down aluminum NES is still pretty pricey.

Microsoft Xbox One X

The next generation of Xbox is nearly here.

Microsoft Xbox One S

The Xbox One S is the console Microsoft should have delivered three years ago, but there's little reason to upgrade if you already own the original box.

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.

Nvidia Shield

The Nvidia Shield's 4K video and solid gaming chops will appeal to geeks, and software updates have made it more stable, but app shortfalls and a relatively high price limit its appeal.

Nintendo New 3DS XL

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 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.

Sony PlayStation Vita 2000

The slimmer, more affordable Vita 2000 is set to ship in Japan on October 10. Check out our first take on the new console.

Nintendo 3DS

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.
