Sometimes you just have to wait until a retailer tosses together a bunch of tech that you're eying before you make the leap. In terms of new gaming consoles, today could very well be the day. There are tempting bundles for both Xbox One and PS4 on the other side of the jump, alongside two other entertainment-minded gadgets to help boost those high scores.

Xbox One Bundle
Regular Price: $730
Engadget Score: 81
Sure, you could go after one of the new Forza 5 bundles, but here you'll nab the Xbox One, an extra controller, the aforementioned title, Zumba World Party to keep you fit and a 12-month Xbox Live Gold subscription. All of that comes with a $100 discount off of the regular sticker price of snagging each of those separately. Don't worry, you can Zumba from the privacy of your own living room. We won't judge.
PlayStation 4 Bundle
Regular Price: $570
Engadget Score: 83
Prefer the PS4 and FPS titles? No worries: There's a bundle for you too. This option includes Call of Duty: Ghosts, a second DualShock 4 controller and one year of PlayStation Plus. Sure, $20 is obviously a modest discount, but that's money you can spend elsewhere, right?
Apple iPad Air (16GB, WiFi)
A tablet on a gaming deals roundup? You betcha. And a $50 price drop on the current-gen model is certainly worth considering, especially when you factor in the iPad Air's A7 chip and stellar battery life for iOS gaming. According to our 90-day Price History, there was an additional $10 discount just last week, so you may want to keep an eye out if you're really pinching pennies.
Turtle Beach Ear Force PX51
Regular Price: $270
If you're all set in the console department, might we suggest a useful accessory? The Ear Force PX51 is now seeing an attractive discount on a model that debuted in March 2013. There's compatibility across a wide spectrum of devices with custom presets to wrangle the 360-degree Dolby Surround Sound.
