    Many thanks for the quick reply.. are there any good offer around for the xbox360

    you can pick up a used one at blockbusters for around £50. New arcarde ones are around the £80-90 mark.

    if you are looking for the new slim revamped model then I think you can get the 4gb ones for about £125 and the 250gb ones for about £180.

    its a matter of taste, for an 8 year old, i would have thought a wii would be perfect.

    xbox all the way . . .

    wii for an 8 yr old

    Xbox is probably more suitable for pre-teen kids as then they won't notice how bad it is in comparison and will be able to play with people of the same age.

    The wii would be your best bet, if your kid was maybe around 10-12 I would've said Xbox.

    For an 8 year old probably the wii, it's probably got more to interest him such as the motion controls, etc. Also alot of the games are more suited to the 8-12 age range I'd say. PS3 is good for above 12 I'd think, it's more suited to serious gaming. Plus it's got a blu ray drive which I don't think would be of great interest to an 8 year old....

    Many thanks to you all

    Why don't you ask him what he wants ? If he wants a wii and you get him a ps3 he won't appreciate it anyway and visa versa
    ps the wii would be better (or a ds)

    if he wants a wii get him a xbox
    if he wants a xbox get him a wii
    and if he wants a ps3 get him a ds
