    Is It Worth It?: Are you ready for Nintendo's latest and greatest? Released today, this limited edition Nintendo 3DS XL is definitely one of the best buys at Best Buy. (Walmart also charges $179.99 with free shipping but lacks the $10 credit.) This handheld console features two screens (one 320x240 touchscreen and one normal 800x240) which display 3D visuals without the need for 3D glasses. It also features a 3D Depth Slider, built-in motion and gyroscope sensors, Circle Pad (analog control), 3D camera, 4GB SD memory card, and comes with the pre-installed Mario & Luigi: Dream Team game.

    Note: You must pick up your order within eight days of it being ready, and the code will subsequently be emailed to you on or after December 9. The savings can be redeemed in-store or online until December 24.

    Is It Worth It?: Not ready to invest in the PS4 or Xbox One? Then opt for the tried and true PS3. This bundle, while $10 less last week, not only features a 500GB iteration of the console, but also comes with GTA V and the Sony DualShock 3 wireless controller, plus a voucher for 30 days of PlayStation Plus.

    A month of PlayStation Plus not enough for ya? You can additionally snag a 1-year subscription for just $30 at Dell Home. That's the lowest price we could find for a download by $20, although we saw it for $2 less last week, since expired. (If you can make it to a Fry's Electronics, you can snag it for $28.)

    Price: $99.99 with $5 s&h

  4. xbox one dealMicrosoft Xbox One Day One Complete Bundle
    Store: Microsoft Store
    Price: $699.95 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $50

    Is It Worth It?: This is one of the few discounts we've seen on the much-anticipated Xbox One console, and not surprisingly it's for a high-end bundle that includes a 1-year Xbox Live subscription and two games. To put this price into context, the Xbox One alone costs $500 (it's currently out of stock at Microsoft Store); if the subscription and games interest you, then this is a fairly sweet deal. Additionally, Microsoft Store offers an "Ultimate" bundle which includes these items and an extra wireless controller and a third game for $799.99 (a low by $70).

  5. minecraftMinecraft for Xbox 360
    Store: Microsoft Store
    Price: $14.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $5

    Is It Worth It?: IGN raves about this nuanced game, stating that, "It's an open-world, a blank page just daring you to jump in and do with it what you will. The question, then, isn't what you need to do to succeed, what's needed to win, but what are you willing to do to make your dreams come to life?" We're sold. Which is great, since it's just $15 shipped.

  6. Killer is DeadKiller is Dead for PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360
    Store: Amazon
    Price: $19.99 with free shipping via Prime
    Lowest By: $19

    Is It Worth It?: This game from SUDA51 (creator of No More Heroes and Killer 7) has received mixed reviews, but over on MetaCritic the user score is a healthy 8 out of 10, with one top reviewer calling it "criminally underrated." At just $20 — which is almost half of what other stores charge — it's not a huge risk to give it a try.

  7. OUYA dealOUYA Android Game Console bundled with an extra Wireless Controller and a $10 Best Buy Gift Card
    Store: Best Buy
    Price: $99.99 with free shipping via Prime
    Lowest By: $8

    Is It Worth It?: The Kickstarter OUYA console has had some stumbles along the way but this has only helped developers make it stronger. If you buy the open-source console now, you can snag an extra controller and a $10 gift card for free, which is a $51 savings. Use that money to buy upgrades to the games that can be downloaded directly to the Android-based console, which features a Tegra3 quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, and Android 4.0 OS (Ice Cream Sandwich).
