|Bottom line|| |
Despite its low price and free-to-try system, the Ouya fails to reach its potential as a disruptive alternative platform.

The Nvidia Shield brings console-level quality to portable Android gaming, but it needs a higher quality list of compatible games before it can truly rival the Vita or 3DS.
In the face of stiff competition from smart phone and tablet gaming, we were hoping for something more audacious from Sony's Vita revamp. The Vita Slim is still a powerful, portable games machine however -- just watch out for those pricey, proprietary memory cards. Owners of the original shouldn't worry about upgrading, but if there are Vita-specific titles you've been hankering to play for a while now, this is a good time to get involved.
