For those of you with kids: my wife and I are looking to get a game system for our 6 year old son this Christmas. While it looks like the Wii is better suited to younger kids, we’re still considering PS3 and Xbox.
We’d like to keep the costs to about $200 or less so we’re considering picking up a used system on Craigslist. So no Wii U for us here.
I’m looking for thoughts on the different systems and which might be the best route. I have zero exposure to these consoles. One question I have is if we were to get, say, a 4gb Xbox, can the memory be upgraded down the road? (Walmart has the Xbox 360 4gb console plus a Skylanders Starter kit for $159).
A couple of points: my son is very active in sports, so we’re not concerned about “getting him moving” and he will have strict timelines for when and how long he can play the thing. As much as I would like to play some of the more adult games, he will not be playing anything of the sort until he is quite a bit older.
Thanks for any input.
