Price: $250 for the Wi-Fi-only version, $300 for the 3G version
Why you want it: Taking gaming to a new level, the PS Vita delivers stunning graphics that are about on a par with those on the PS3. Take a hike, Angry Birds. Uncharted has my vote for best mobile game of the year.
Why you didn't get it: Though Sony has already launched the PS Vita in Japan, you'll have to wait another two months before it arrives stateside. Unless, of course, you have a friend in Japan who is willing to buy and ship one to you.
