Kinect

We've seen it in countless demos and heard about it through prototype hands-ons and vague rumors, but Project Natal is real, and it's ready to play. The Kinect for Xbox 360 ($150) is Microsoft's killer motion tracking add-on, featuring a camera, audio sensors, motion-sensing tech to track 48 points of movement on your body, and the ability to recognize faces and voices. All of which works together to give you a unique, motion-driven gaming experience without the need for silly things like controllers.

  • PS3 Slim

    Been holding off on buying Sony's latest gaming console, or just looking for a solid, network-capable Blu-ray player? Say hello to the PS3 Slim ($300; September 2009). As the name suggests, the revised console takes up 32 percent less space and uses 34 percent less power than its comparatively gargantuan predecessor, while still offering HDMI and optical digital audio output, built-in Wi-Fi, dual USB ports, a 120GB hard drive, and, of course, that aforementioned Blu-ray drive.

  • Arkeg

    Beer and gaming go together like Mario and Luigi, and the Arkeg ($4,000) offers up plenty of both. This arcade game-styled machine features a fully functioning kegerator in its belly, with room for a 5 gallon keg kept cool by a solid-state thermoelectric cooling system. In addition, it sports a gaming-ready PC, pre-loaded with 69 games such as Asteroids, Mortal Kombat II, and 1942. Other features include a 24-inch LCD with protective overlay, an authentic backlit marquee, a 2.1 sound system with powered sub, two complete arcade controllers and a trackball mounted in a custom aluminum panel, a side-mounted tap with interchangeable handle, and more.
