    Xbox 360 v xbox one

    We have had an original wii forever but I'm considering buying an xbox. My kid is killing me for one of course. We are far from serious gamers for sure. Funny thing my kid keeps saying he wants the xbox 360. He's 8 years old. I however tend to err towards the higher end with such purchases to hopefully stretch the lifespan of it to hopefully avoid quickly becoming obsolete. I'm looking for any insight on whether I should just take the xbox one or if the 360 would do it. Thoughts? I'll hang up and listen.

    Re: Xbox 360 v xbox one

    360's are a lot cheaper than the One. I just got a One probably 3 weeks ago and I think it's great. There's not a lot of great games out right now so that's something to think about. There's gonna be some released later this year though. If you've looked into it, maybe you've seen that the One is more of an entertainment system. I'd recommend not getting the One with Kinect unless your son and you would want to play those types of games. I didn't have Kinect with my 360 so I was more than happy to save the $100 by getting the One without it.

    I played my 360 for many years. Well actually a few 360s because a couple of them had problems. It was a lot of fun and there's lot of good games out for it of course.

    Let me know if have any other questions.

    I have both and I would say get the 360
    the box1 is ~$250 more, it doesn't have much games for it yet and there is still a lot of bugs.

    Re: Xbox 360 v xbox one

    Xbox 360's are now considered last generation consoles. They will be obsolete in a year or so as far as games are concerned. Xbox One's are more expensive because they are the current generation of consoles. If you buy him a 360, he will be wanting the Xbox one by this time next year so you might as well get the One now. I don't know for sure as I don't own an Xbox One, but I believe you can play any 360 game on the Xbox One also. Someone with better knowledge would have better insight.

    For an eight year old, get the xbox 360. When he is twelve to fourteen get the next generation xbox.

    Don't buy an Xbox One for an 8 year old kid. Get the 360 now and be ready to drop the big money on whatever comes after the One/PS4 in four years.

    New consoles are probably ten years down the road. Definitely get the one. It may not have a ton of games but it has enough. Besides are you really gonna buy games that are old enough to not be on the new ones.

    I really don't see any benefit to buying a 360.

    Someone will be out with the next generation in four or five years and then others will follow. Just look at track record in last 30 years. They are talking about chips equivalent to a brain from IBM under development. They make their money by coming out with new....

    If you are going to get the xbox1 I would wait a month or 2, that's when the games will start coming out.

    I don't see the point in waiting though. Unless there's going to be a small price drop during the holidays, there's no reason to wait if there's at least one game out there you want.

    I have both, and hardly play my One yet due to lack of games. Some good ones coming out though.
