I currently have a Gamecube and PS2. I was looking at a new console for our kids' birthday on 17th of March (5 years old). I was thinking Wii, since that would be most suited for kids that age. But something bothers me about the Wii : accessories. I just learned about the Sensor bar : ok, but that's another wire. Next to the Wii motes (we'll need two), nunchucks and all the batteries they need, I'm starting to feel that it'll be more trouble than fun. Same thing with the PS3 (and in addition to that, it's really expensive) So the 360 just has the standard wireless controllers + the kinect. No other accessories to consider. Only thing is, there aren't many games out yet that cater for young children. So maybe it 'd be better to wait until Christmas or somewhere around that time. Maybe I'll just get some more games for the PS2 and GC (maybe some buzz junior games) for the time being. In any case, I had never thought of it like this, but when I look at all the stuff you have to buy extra for the Wii or PS3, the 360 has a HUGE advantage over these systems with Kinect. Microsoft maybe on to a winner here ! Then again, there's that minimum distance of 6 feet... Ouch.
