Nothing expresses "holiday season" like being closer with your favorite gaming device and spending more quality time into the backlog of games piling up next to the TV. But 2012 was the year of change when it comes to gaming devices - PC graphics cards are dropping in price and easily surpassed rival consoles, and new products such as the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo Wii U offer new ways to interact with those classic characters. So, what should you buy for the gaming-inclined people in your life? Keep on reading to find out what best fits your budget.

On the cheap

Nintendo DSI XL

Obviously, the Nintendo 3DS is the new hotess, but there are so many great contents (and cheap) on the final version of the DSi, XL. With games ranging in price from $1 to $30, the DSi XL is a great choice for kids (and parents), which are basically guaranteed to keep the long-term financial investment low. Why is it also good for kids and parents? It is very solid. You can hardly find a new DSi XL in the store, but a pre-owned one will cost even less than the $130.

Main Specification: Dual 4.2-inch LCD screen (256x192), SD card slot, rated for 3 to 12 hours of battery life and weighs 314g (0.7 pounds).

Price: From $154 on Amazon

Sony PlayStation Vita

PlayStation Vita couldn't be topped in terms of sales, but there was a lot of content available for Sony's second entry in the portable console market. The 5-inch OLED multi-touch screen is bright and fast, the controls and button layout are comfortable and graphics outclass the Nintendo 3DS's performance. Yes, for $ 250, it's still too expensive, but at this price, there are many good reasons to buy one (Gravity Rush, and Sound Shapes LittleBigPlanet come to your mind).

Nintendo Wii U

Nintendo's Wii U could still have work to do to convince gamers to its value, but the original gamers among us would like to grab this advanced system when it launched last November. A huge list of games at launch, of course, does not cause any harm.

Price: From $300 starting from 18/11 on Nintendo

iPad mini

Yes, seriously. We are recommended you to buy yourself a mini iPad for gaming. There is just too much game for iOS to overlook Apple's new, smaller tablet. (Have you not played Super Hexagon?!) It also has many other games.

Price: $329 from Apple

Money's no object
