For a young family which is more fun and will last longer a Wii or a X box with Kinect?

Children range in ages from 9 to 5 years. Why do you think one is better than the other?

  • I don't know much about the Xbox with Kinect but my brother has a Wii and he has a 6, 9, and 11 year olds that absolutely love playing the Wii. I have teens and we all play the Wii also.

  • Kinects...
    We have a Wii.. My 4yo never really got the hang of it.. and i got irritated working out & getting errors with the controller
    We got the kinects a few days after it came out & she totally understood it within 5 minutes (there is nothing to "not understand")
    With Wii we (adults/kids) had some issues with doing the right thing with the control.. but with the kinects we have no problems & the only warning we get is to stay in the right area so the camera can see us.

    Kinects works for IMO for kids because it recognizes YOU as a person.. so people can hop in & out of play.. more party mode stuff..

    I will keep my wii since we spent alot on the board & stuff & I just dont sell stuff easily but Kinects is my favorite.

  • I'm going to say an Xbox 360 with the Kinect.

  • XBox w/Knect. My SS has a Wii at his moms, he has played it 3-4 times, he doesn't like it. He and my sone both are begging for the Knect for Christmas, so santa is going to bring them one.
