The Wii system (pictured) runs $40 and includes batteries and replacement doors for two Wiimotes. The 360 and PS3 Power & Play aren't quite the same bargain, consisting only of a recharging base for $30, but hey, Microsoft and Sony have already provided fairly elegant battery solutions for gamers. Read on for full details.
