We have a Wii. My 4 year old loves it. My 8 year old daughter rarely gets to play it because my 4 year old is always on it. SO, my 8 yr old daughter has a birthday coming up. She had a blast at Best Buy last week playing one of those xbox360 Kinetic (spelling?) games where you dont need a controller. I think PS3 has the same type of thing (?) I want some opinions on why I should get one over the other. selfishly, I enjoy football games, and obviously have not been able to get a new one on my PC in a few years. So, I will take advantage of that option. I may also go for some of the war games out now. But, I don't have any interest in PvP situations where a 14 year old in Kansas keeps virtually blowing me up before I blink. Truth is, however, this will be primarily for the kids. I know nothing about gaming systems. Someone tell me what I need, why I need it, and why one is better than the other. Also, if I something better is about to come out, let me know that as well. If it matters, the system will be connected to a 106" screen with 7.1 surround system.
