I have 3 boys, 8, 5, and 4. They currently have a wii. I want to purchase an xbox system for them, but I am not sure if I should spend the $$ on the one or stick with a 360. I don't want to get a console that will be obsolete in a year.

I have been away from gaming for some time (my last system was a ps2)

any thoughts?

360 will be good for 3 years...

I'd still say One though - may as well get the latest um... one.

Define "obsolete"? If it has great games you haven't played yet, is it obsolete? I presume your kids won't be playing online with strangers so you won't need to buy Gold. Or if you want Gold just for Netflix or whatever then get a PS3 instead so it's free. There are over 50 games on 360 with Metacritic 90% or above, most of them probably budget price.

Please raise your children to be not casual.
The claim: I play what's fun.
The truth: Video games aren't entertaining enough, I must chide others for choosing to play something I won't.

With the amount of games the 360 has I doubt it will be obsolete any time soon.
Alright you primitive screwheads, listen up. See this?

Make sure they dress to the nines when playing.

"Casuals" keep the industry alive.

if you're just getting a 360 now you'll have a ton of older games to play. if they just want to play the latest versions of madden and cod or whatever, 1 is probably a better choice.

Even if the Xbox 360 becomes obsolete in a year, the amount of catching up that you're going to have to do is going to be insane if you've never owned a 360. Whether the console will be obsolete or not is the least of your concerns. You should be worried about how you're going to find time to play 8 years' worth of games lol
