    but my kids really want minecraft. we are debating on how to go about it. we are thinking about getting them each a tablet rather than buying an xbox or the like. my wife and i know nothing about this stuff. any advice would be appreciated.

    The tablet version is not compatible with the Xbox/ps 3/4. If you enjoy your gaming console get them the tablet.

    yeah I would still go with the x360 I have the xbox one and the new game releases are so damn slow I dont even think GTA5 comes out on it till next month WTF.. I do love every other aspect of the console though. the voice and video recognition are awesome for when you are faded as fuck lol fallout 3 is rad
