Game console help!

Postby shanyo76 » Tue Nov 05, 2013 6:05 pm

I have a 10 year old son. He has a Playstation 3 and a Nintendo 3DS. He wants the new Playstation 4 or the new Xbox. NOT IN THE BUDGET. He loves Minecraft and plays on the laptop all the time. Would the Xbox 360 be a good choice for him, with the Minecraft game? Or a waste of money?

Minecraft is available, for both PS3, & XBox360 and will be for PS4 & X1

no need to buy a new game station, if you just want to use your ps3

Now the prices on Xbox 360 are dropping, there are good deals on bundles right now.

I really don't know if this helps, something about your post confused me.

Ok, I didn't realize it was available on the PS3. My son insists he needs the Xbox 360 to play. LOL. I think all his friends play that way so he thinks he needs to as well. :roll:

Saw these downloads

I may have been wrong about the actual game :(

Minecraft is not available on PS3 yet. Minecraft is scheduled to be released on PS4 when it launches on November 15. Minecraft is supposed to be released on PS3 sometime soon, but no release date has been announced yet.

I'm not sure what those web sites are-- maybe scammer/malware sites? I'd be wary.

My 14 year old sprung that one on me today. He wants the New Playstation 4

I will get it for him, BUT the problem is, he has no TV in his room, so he is probably going to want a TV as well, fortunately those are cheap on BF BUT waitt I am not going out shopping on dark Thursday....I'll have to see about that.

I will be closely following this as my 10yo also wants a game system for Minecraft. Hubs was saying "Why not get them a X1" Ha! Man has lost his mind. I wonder though will they still release new games for the 360? That was my only concern.

If used is an option, Gamestop has the refurbished original consoles with two controllers and a HDD for $99 on BF. I would recommend getting a gamestop warranty though to be safe. I have purchased two refurb Xbox 360's from Gamestop and have yet to have a problem... One thing to keep in my mind is Minecraft has been out on the Xbox for a while now, and if your kids have any friends on xbox live, they can "mine" together..

Also keep in mind that some of the releases will only be for the newest consoles. For example, Forza 5 right now is only scheduled for xbox one. There is speculation that it will eventually be released for 360, but might not.

My 14 year old decided about two weeks ago that he wants a PS4 as his big present. I flat out cannot find one. They come out Friday, all preorders are sold out. Although I am signed up for alerts to be notified when the product becomes available, all indications are that there will be a shortage and not enough to go around by Christmas.

SO I let him know about this, so that he could choose another big present. He flat out does not want the XBOX 1

We are looking at another unique and unusual item now: The 3D Printer.

Something that allows you to pretend you are chinese and make cheap plastic crap at home.
