Xbox One $399+

The Xbox One’s starting price is now on par with its Sony rival, and Microsoft delivers plenty for that $400: a great gaming experience with excellent multitasking and very few snags. Plus, the $500 Kinect bundle adds face recognition and the ability to turn on both your console and TV by saying, “Xbox: On!”

We mean it when we say this $400 console is worth it, but we’re also assuming that you’re a die-hard gamer. Sure, services such as Hulu Plus, Netflix and Music Unlimited are on board, but it’s really all about the exclusive titles. Luckily, you get a top-notch wireless controller for enjoying them.
