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. 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. 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.
