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.
Overall, the PlayStation Vita is the most advanced portable gaming system ever made. While the price is deceiving because of a hidden cost, gamers are getting an impressively complete package. Now priced at $200, the Vita makes a compelling case as the ultimate indie portable console.
The PlayStation 4's beautiful graphics, blazing interface, near-perfect controller, and lower price give it a slight edge on the Xbox One -- for now.
Its high price and imperfect voice control and TV integration keep the Xbox One short of must-have territory, but the inclusion of Titanfall for free (for new purchases) helps Microsoft's console hold the line against Sony's compelling PS4.
