  • A wii, for sure. I've heard of a lot of problems and defects with the xbox 360's.

  • I would buy a Wii-- because I think they are fun, they are physically active and I might actually play some with my hubby!
    That being said, I know guys are crazy about the XBox 360!

  • We have both and I like the Wii a LOT better, for me. Dh prefers the X Box. It depends on what kind of games you like. If your dh is a big gamer who wants to play online with friends, the X Box is a better choice. But if you want something that you will enjoy too for more casual gamers, the Wii is awesome!!!

  • Depends on the games---if your dh likes action type of games go for the xbox 360. We have both and both have had to be sent in for repairs (covered under warranty, thankfully). The young kids like the WII, the games seem to be more kid/family friendly similar to the gamecube, but the teens prefer the type of games made for the 360.
