Best 3D game console
To enjoy 3D TV in your home you need a 3D source, a 3D TV, and 3D glasses.
You may already own one of the best 3D sources: a PS3. Yes, the Xbox 360 can play a few 3D games, but the PS3 offers more. In practice, 3D console gaming is still in its infancy, and most of the 3D titles can actually look worse than the 2D versions. On the flip side, the PS3 can also double as a 3D Blu-ray player.
Looking for 3D games? Here's a summary of the best and worst available as of December 2011. Only a few PS3 3D titles have been released in the year since then (infancy, remember?) including Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and MLB 12: The Show.
The good: The Super Slim PlayStation 3 shrinks a powerful gaming machine into an even tinier package while maintaining the same features as its predecessors: a great gaming library and a strong array of streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon, Vudu, and NFL Sunday Ticket.
The bad: It seems Sony isn't yet able to bring down the price of the PS3, even though some cost-cutting design choices have been made. The Super Slim PS3's odd sliding disc tray and glossy plastic encasing make it appear cheap. Also, a few annoyances like not including HD cables and the lack of an infrared IR port should have been resolved by now.
The bottom line: The latest PS3 slims down to its smallest size ever while retaining everything we like -- and a few things we don't -- about the PlayStation 3 gaming console.
