I did a quick search and it looked like the last time this was discussed was a few years ago, but apologies if this is a repeat of a recent topic.
I am planning to get my 8-year old son his first game system and wanted to see if there was a consensus on the board as to which of the current options is best. The last system I owned was ColecoVision in the 80's, so I have no relevant first-hand experience on the topic.
In addition to games played while sitting, he says he also likes playing the games where you're more active (Wii, Kinnect, I believe).
I understand there is an online component to gaming, but at his current age, we're going to try to keep that under wraps for a while and keep all interaction inside our home.
My hope is this is a system that will last him a few years.
Any new systems on the horizon that are worth waiting for?
Thanks for the help.
