    The first thing that springs to mind is the 360.

    AFAIK you need to buy a flasher to mod your 360.

    Get a PSP if you're interested in PSP/PS1 games + SNES, NES, GBA, GBC and various other emulators you can play whenever you want.

    Don't get a PS Vita or a 3DS until better games come out.

    Buy a PS3 if...I dunno, if you like PS3 exclusives?

    Buy a 360 if all of your friends have a 360.

    Buy a Wii if you want GC games and some Wii games I guess. And some cool homebrew and emulators, too.

    My vote is for a PSP.

    If you want something you can soft mod i suggest the OUYA.
    With your left over money (It only cost ~$100) you can buy a huge stack of games for it.

    The ouya would be good if more games are anouced

    hmmm

    you want something powerful? Well PS Vita is great although you need a game to hack it(A specific PSP game which can't be downloaded anymore or at least the version with the exploit in it)

    Also the Vita does not have too much games and there is a dark future T-T

    Playstation 3 maybe?

    Or wait till next gen consoles ^^

    Vita's not hacked easily (and only runs PSP-level stuff anyways and no ISOs at all), so go for a PSP or a DS for portable homebrew and stuff.

    EDIT: The Vita cannot be pirated on (not even PSP stuff) and we've seen no indication that it plays PS2 games.

    A) There's only like... Final Fantasy III and OnLive coming to Ouya so far.
    B) Ouya games are free
    C) Why would you waste money on an Ouya? If you want a good hobbyist device you can get a Raspberry Pi for around $35. Its very barebones and such but it's fun to play with (I got one recently from my dad)

    In all seriousness though, I wouldn't blow the money immediately, I always end up blowing all the money I get and then, next thing you know, something comes up I want to buy and I've got nothing to buy it with. At least save a sizable chunk for spending money.
