None of my kids are heavy gamers but this year both my son and my daughter have requested an Xbox (either 360 or One). We're not going to have a lot of money to spend this year (it has been a tough year financially) so I am leaning towards the Xbox 360. There is 8 1/2 years between them, so this is one thing they both have in common and can play together. My son wants some Call of Duty games and my daughter wants a Kinect, a few Kinect games, and a few other games. I am hoping to get a good deal on a system this year.
My DD got a great deal at Gamestop 2 years ago on a refurbished 360 still pays great too!
