The Bottom Line The original GBA will still appeal to gamers on a budget, but its lack of illumination is a big drawback. By including an illuminated screen, Nintendo has finally fixed the original Game Boy Advance's biggest flaw. Sony's slimmed-down, network-ready PS2 is a welcome update to the world's most popular video game console. With a smaller design, more energy-efficient operation, lower price tag, and built-in Blu-ray and multimedia capabilities, the PS3 Slim delivers a compelling package for an affordable price.
