For me it's my PS4. Got one brand new for $300 :). Been playing games like Battlefield 4 (best multiplayer of this year), Watch_Dogs, Destiny beta, MGS Ground Zeroes, and Injustice Ultimate Edition. Graphics and gameplay are great. You, SW?

I'm super excited to get my 32GB card for my Vita tomorrow. Not terrible for $45.

Otherwise, Dark Souls 2 on PS3 for $13 and Gold Wireless Headsets for $55 were also awesome.

Not bad. I remember last year I came close to buying a 32gb for $50. Borderlands 2 kinda killed my 16gb lol.

34" LG ultra-widescreen monitor because it rocks or a decked out lenovo y50 touch (bday gift to my daughter) that i paid $1000 from a needy coworker, not bad for an i7 maxwell 860m system with 512GB ssd (crucial mx100) and 16GB ram.

Gaming: PS+

Metro Last Light. Thank you Gaben... 7 euros for the best FPS to have ever existed + all of it's DLC.

Wolfenstein: The New Order or Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on sale. However, the Destiny Beta was probably the best thing I've played this year.

Probably Mario Kart 8. That's been a game I've had a ton of fun with both alone and with a crowd.

Highly suggested. As I said make sure to clear some backlog before acquiring it because it'll sap away time quickly.

So far? Probably TrackMania: Build to Race. Such an excellent, content rich game, and it was only $10. It's easily one of the best Wii games, and it being a Wii game, I'm sure it's one many have looked over.

Probably Xbone... Having just PS4 wasn't doing it for me. Plus I prefer Xbox's exclusives abit more.

I got a used Xbone in superb working condition for $80 (console only). Through buying used stuff cheap on craigslist and reselling/getting gamestop credit for more my total investment is just over $200 and I have the console, hookups, 2 controllers, battery packs and charging cable, a year of live, and forza.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. A platforming masterpiece and a game I've played over 88 hours already and there's still so much quality content to get through.

It's one of the best games of all time full stop.

I bought a mechanical keyboard for my PC which I really like.

I also bought Mount and Blade Warband, and have put in over 300 hours so far......... I think I bought that around Christmas last year though.

Well, I mean, $45 for 32GB kind of is terrible, given non-proprietary storage is selling for less than $20, but I'm going to make the plunge soon, too. I really want to start getting more digital games on the Vita and 4GB just isn't going to cut it.

Not sure if it's the best. The new PSU because my 7-year old one died. So if I wanted to keep my PC up and running, I had to buy it. Meh.

I have been sticking with retail games. My Vita came with the 4GB. I have been trying to hold out until the storage became reasonable. It just looks like it isn't going to happen anytime soon, though.
