30 of 37

PlayStation 4 / Xbox One

Who makes them: Sony/Microsoft

What they cost: $399, $499

Why we like them: They pack 10 times the processing power with the ability to deliver hyper-realistic graphics. Both include updated motion-sensing cameras and features that place users in some games. And they’re no slouches in delivering Web streaming services such as Netflix, Redbox Instant by Verizon and Amazon Instant Video. Frankly, after waiting this long for new consoles, what's not to like?
