Thinking of getting one as a pressie for my 8 year old lad. Anyone got one and how do they compare to the PS3?  I'd prefer Microsoft type engine... he loves Fifa 14 on my phone and also Minecraft.  I may well also get COD Ghost for myself when he's not here Very Happy

Xbox One comes out 22 November....is that what you mean?  The "old" versions are by hard drive size I think...eg Xbox 360 4GB or Xbox 360 250GB.

XBox one

Nah, not the Xbox one, that'll be too expensive! Just the XBox 360 Slim (250Gb or whatever they want to call it).

My youngest son has had one for about 3 years.  He says get the 250 GB version.  It's quiet after it installs the game as it only needs the disk to verify that it's genuine.  It's reliable and no red ring of death.....yet.

It come with a free silver account  and when it's attached to a router, it will update with game patches.  Gold accounts cost £40 pa but you may not need this yet for a young 'un.  He tells me that attaching to the PS3 Sony network is free.

He can't provide a comparison between PS3 and Xbox.  Both have their fans, Halo series is only available on Xbox and other games are only available on PS3.  A two horse race now that the Wii is struggling.

If you have anymore questions, let me know and I'll ask the expert!

Too expensive Mikey? That doesn't sound like you  Very Happy

Its a "home network tool" so surely you can justify it on your "man toy" budget

tbh we tend to use the Xbox mainly for watching movies, gameplay on consoles is shit  Laughing
