The Bottom Line The most affordable of the current game systems, the Nintendo GameCube offers great graphics and good performance but few extras. The elder statesman of next generation consoles, the PlayStation 2 has the luxury of a year's head start and many solid games. The Xbox is the most versatile console and perfectly complements a home-theater system. 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 Xbox 360 remains a great video and gaming console, but fans will be better served by older 360 bundles -- or waiting for the Xbox One.
