    Hi guys

    I have 6 year old twin boys and for Christmas I would like to buy either Play Station or Wii for them.

    I read some reviews to be able to pick the one that is more suitable for 6 year olds but not a lot of comparison.

    Any suggestions here?

    I like the PS3 better, but I think a Wii would be better for kids so if I were you I'd buy them that then get them the PS3 when they're older. ;)

    I have a Playstation 3, but the only thing I really use it for is MLB.tv and Netflix. I just don't play many console games.

    That said, if your twins are six years old I would think the Wii would be the better choice. The Wii has a lot of less complicated for them than the PS3 I believe.

    There are other users here that have both. I'm sure they will chime in as well.

    Wii or 360 would be the better choice for kids.

    I just pre-ordered the Wii-U last week at GS. We have all 3 systems, but to be honest, I started my son out on an SNES at 4 yrs old and he is 10x the gamer I am now. :( Very good at it.

    The Wii is a great system for children of that age. I'd def look into it more than say the PS3. It has some good kids games but nothing compared to the Wii.


    G/L and Im sure w/e you choose they runts will enjoy it. :starspin

    My kids like Playstation now they are 13-11. When they were younger the Wii. They are practically giving the Wii away nowadays arent they?

    I bought a PS3 because my son said I needed it to get 1080 for some reason. I get 1080 from my AppleTV. Not much on Comcast at 1080 it seems or am I wrong about that? I also have a WD media ctr for some downloads on a network HD. I guess that does 1080 if the media is 1080?? What to I need this PS3 for? Never used it.

    BTW, seems Wii better for kids. At least they interact with it and get some exercise.

    You can bet a refurbished Wii for about $100 at Gamestop. If it's for Christmas, the next generation Wii should be out by then.

    We had a LOT of fun together on the Wii when my kids were younger. You get to create your own character as well, so they will like that...

    One thing I would caution.... make SURE they use the wrist straps at ALL times. If not you will likely be buying a new TV, fixing walls and buying new controllers...

    Don't overlook XBOX-Kinect. When the kids get older, just add a regular XBOX to the list :)

    I'd go with a Wii. Anything made by SONY will just break in a few months.
