Another portable console to consider is the Nintendo 3DS XL. It is basically a bigger 3DS with a bigger screen, but that is good enough for an upgrade in my book. Also, if you were a Nintendo ambassador (aka 3DS early adopter) your free stuff transfers to the new system. The 3DS is a great system (even with it's region lock nonsense) and the library of games is getting better every week, so there is no reason not to invest in one of these. It is certainly doing better than the Vita (sorry Sony, but I am starting to regret my purchase.)
Assassin's Creed 3 combines American history, crazy science fiction, and beautiful graphics into one stunning package. The game concludes the story of Connor, so it maybe hard to understand the overall narrative if you haven't played the Assassin Creed series, but this game can be played without prior knowledge of the AC lore ( though I do recommend at least a primer on Youtube about the origins of the Templars and the Assassins.) If you have a graphics whore on your list, this game should whet their appetite.

The Playstation 3 has seen a few hardware revisions, from the old PS2 playing fat model to the latest slim and light model that only plays digital PS2 games (ugh.) The latest slim PS3 leaves a bit to be desired in the design department, but that doesn't mean some companies aren't trying to make a few pimped out PS3s for people with money to burn. Feast your eyes upon magical Japanese limited editions you will never own...

These limited edition Playstation 3's are too rich for my blood, but somehow I was lucky enough to find the Final Fantasy Dissidia PSP used for $90.00...
