Wii U

Treading on down the off-trail path they’ve already set, Nintendo’s latest system is a sort of mash-up hybrid between a 3DS and a Wii – not that that’s in any way a bad thing. While the console itself finally gains 1080p HD and is compatible with virtually everything Wii, its accompanying gamepad easily grabs the spotlight, packing a 6.2-inch touchscreen display, front-facing camera & mic, built-in gyroscope, accelerometer, and speakers, and pairs with your TV-screen gaming to make it all the more immersive. Someone hogging the tube? No worries: play directly on the GamePad, no wires needed.Learn more at Nintendo or Amazon – $300+
