  • Though it's a bit pricey, the Nintendo 3DS successfully offers a glasses-less 3D experience that needs to be seen to be believed. A weaker-than-usual launch lineup and some inactivated online features dampen its launch, but the future certainly looks bright.


  • Though it's uglier and trickier to get the hang of than its predecessors, the 3DS manages to be a unique gaming machine that Nintendo fans will want.


  • A time-tested game system design coupled with innovative, convincing 3D technology, makes the Nintendo 3DS a force to be reckoned with. It's not only the most advanced Nintendo DS yet, but a solid first in a new generation of handheld game systems.


  • 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.


  • Slim-line game console system stands out for its value, versatility, and options, and rates 4.5 stars for its efforts. As a Blu-ray player, it rates 3.5 stars; the Blu-ray disc images it outputs are good, but not as pleasing as those on our top-performing stand-alone players, making it a good Blu-ray value only if you also want to play PlayStation 3 games.


  • A long-overdue price drop, a hard-drive bump, and a compelling physical redesign make the Sony PlayStation 3 more desirable than ever.


  • 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.

  • Xbox 360 Elite, the premier Xbox 360 console package that includes a massive 120GB hard drive, a HDMI port and like all Xbox 360 consoles and a premium black finish.

  • In light of the recent software updates, the new Xbox 360 is probably the most complete and convenient box that you can stick under your telly. Not only does it play the latest video games, but it offers a huge amount of other content in one slickly designed interface.


  • - The remote also is very responsive and faces no line-of-sight issues because it uses Bluetooth radio, not IR (infrared).


  • - At present that are more than 60 playable games and game-related downloads available through PSN, with more coming soon.


  • - I connected the PS3 via HDMI to the HP Pavilion md5880n and the results were impressive.
