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.

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.

Microsoft Xbox 360 E

The Xbox 360 remains a great video and gaming console, but fans will be better served by older 360 bundles -- or waiting for the Xbox One.

Nintendo Wii U

The Wii U is good for Nintendo lovers and great for families, but hold out for the Switch, the Wii U's imminent successor.

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.

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 NES Classic Edition

The NES Classic is a great self-contained mini console that plays 30 of the best NES games ever made -- but Switch owners will be able to play many of the same titles later this year.

Microsoft Xbox One X

Xbox One X lays a credible claim to the title of most powerful game console ever, but it has an uphill battle for your gaming dollar, especially if you already own an original Xbox One.

Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP

By including an illuminated screen, Nintendo has finally fixed the original Game Boy Advance's biggest flaw.

Nintendo DSi XL

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.

Nintendo DS Lite

With a slick new design, brighter screens, and a growing library of fun and innovative games, the Nintendo DS Lite is an impressive improvement over the original DS.

Sony PSP Go

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 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.

Sony PlayStation 3 Slim 120GB

With a smaller design, more energy-efficient operation, lower price tag, and built-in Blu-ray and multimedia capabilities, the PS3 Slim delivers a compelling package for an affordable price.

Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite 120GB

While it's neither a must-have upgrade for existing 360 owners nor as feature-packed as the PS3, the Xbox 360 Elite's combination of top-notch gaming and digital media features make it the current game console of choice.

Sony PlayStation Vita TV

Sony has unveiled the Vita TV, a micro console that can play Vita games and stream content and software from PlayStation 4.

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.

Sony PlayStation 3

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.
