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 Project Scorpio

The next generation of Xbox is coming in 2017. Here's all the info so far.

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.

Nintendo 2DS

With a new low price, the 2DS offers a huge array of compelling games and makes for a great entry-level system for uninitiated first-time gamers.

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.

Nintendo 3DS XL

Three years in, the Nintendo 3DS handheld has become a seriously good game device -- especially for fans of Nintendo's classic gaming franchises -- and the XL is the one you should buy.

Mad Catz MOJO Android Micro-Console

The Mad Catz MOJO is a micro-console running Android and comes with a full-on console-quality controller. It currently has no price or release date.

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.

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.

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
