Xbox 360 (read review)
The Xbox One with no games is $499.99. If you're not ready to make that investment, like with the PS3, you can get the Xbox 360 with a bundle of games for a relatively modest price. (This bundle would regularly run you $286).
- Overall score: 7.9 (3.5 stars)

The good: The Xbox 360 E delivers a fantastic library of media and games, along with slightly quieter operation than the previous 360 model.
The bad: The 360 E loses the optical audio output found on previous Xbox models; lacks a Blu-ray drive; requires annual Xbox Live Gold subscription for nearly all online gaming and entertainment apps; older 360 hardware/software bundles remain a better value. The newer Xbox One is just around the corner.
The bottom line: 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.
