The Bottom Line Sony's slimmed-down, network-ready PS2 is a welcome update to the world's most popular video game console. The elder statesman of next generation consoles, the PlayStation 2 has the luxury of a year's head start and many solid games. 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. 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. 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.
