    Im in my 40's and havent played video games since the mid 80's when Nintendo came out.

    My sister-in-law told me my nephews want a gaming console for Xmas. THey are ages 4 and 6.

    I dont know the first thing about gaming these days and I dont know anyone who has either.


    Which one would you guys who are in the know get and why?

    Any insight you can give would be greatly appreciated.

    I think Nintendo's Wii consoles are better for young children who don't know shit about good video games.

    If youre in my 40's and havent played video games since the mid 80's when Nintendo came out, you should probably skip console gaming because its nothing like it was back then. Its all about downloading updates and new content and shit. Just buying the game and thats it is over. Its all a money grab.

    Xbox One. Better games. Well, both have good games, but Xbox has better exclusive games (just for Xbox). Plus, it will play Xbox 360 games as well, which you can find used for cheap.

    I have the Xbone, only because I was coming from the 360 and Playstation's online multiplayer was a fucking dumpster fire.

    I'm sure it's better now (I believe it's not free anymore, though). I can say this, the Xbox dashboard is a fucking DISASTER. Typical Microsoft shit UI... the games are awesome - even though I'm really only playing BF4 for the 3rd straight year. :jj:

    I own both and agree with xavier. I don't really notice any difference. Saying that PC gaming > console gaming.

    Definitely a Wii for those ages. Mine were around that age when the original Wii came out and they loved it.

    Good point. They have that active shit. But Xbox has Kinnect or whatever. I know I'm not break a sweat playing video games. Fuck that.
