My kids have a Wii. We got it as a Christmas gift a few years ago. This year my sons (ages 11 and 9) are asking for an Xbox 360.
My initial impression was: Are you nuts? You already have a Wii. Why would you need a second gaming system?
But then I thought about all the people into video gaming that have several different systems.
Money is not really a huge issue. It would be a shared gift and is within our budget. In fact, in one way the gift would make Christmas shopping easier and give us something to tell the grandparents that the boys would like as gifts (games to go with the new system).
So, gamers, what do you think? Should we not get the extra system because it is wasteful, duplicative, and just gives them another media to spend time on? Or should we get them the second system because there are differing games or other reasons why two systems would be fun for the kids?
Also, can you hook both the Wii and Xbox up to the same TV? Or would this require a second TV?
Let me know your thoughts.
