Regular Price: $1,800
Engadget Score: 87
We gave the Alienware 17 high marks for its gaming performance, solid keyboard/trackpad and build quality. What didn't we like? Well, we found this 17-incher to only last about three hours into a Battlefield 4 marathon before needing a charge. See for yourself how this beast matches up with the best gaming laptops available with our compare tool.
Nintendo 3DS XL
Regular Price: $200
Engadget Global Score: 82
Nintendo outed the larger version of its 3DS handheld back in 2012, and now it's now available at $30 less than original sticker price -- if you don't mind the red/black color scheme. The larger screen is the key feature here, but the in-hand feel and improved battery life (under certain conditions) are also welcome improvements. According to our price drop tool, the $170 price tag is on par with the 90-day low for the most part. Want to hold out for a bit? You can keep an eye on the 3DS XL to save a few more bucks by adding it to your Want list.
Call of Duty: Ghosts
Regular Price: $50
Buy: Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC
Released back in November ahead of the new console launches, the latest installment of the CoD franchise dropped $11 on Xbox 360 and PS3 -- one dollar less than the PC and Wii U options. Our pals over at Joystiq gave the title 3.5 out of 5 stars (PS4 version).
Ion iCade Core
Regular Price: $100
Engadget Global Score: 84
How about an arcade-like feel for your iOS gaming exploits? Ion's iCade Core can do just that. The device doesn't have the retro stylings of the first-gen iCade, but we were quite pleased to find that it worked as advertised. Of course, a modest $13 investment is a minimal risk to give the device a shot. This price is consistent with the lowest we've seen in the last three months, thanks to our trusty price drop tool.
