Click Here to But it Now from Sony, $250 

Sony's second-gen handheld might be far behind the 3DS in sales, but there’s no denying the Vita’s raw graphics power and cross-platform play. Games and video playback look marvelous on Samsung’s 5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. Touchscreen input is responsive, while accommodating the manufacturer’s iconic control scheme. Throw in some game franchise exclusives and app support (Netflix, Skype), and Sony has a portable monster that’s far more deserving of a bigger reception.
