My step son broke my boys' XBOX 360 update with a poll

Question: Which is better


No Christmas presents for SS

Make him work it off over the next 5 months and until he works it off he may not use the xbox at all

He was mad because when he came over the other day, my boys were already playing a game and didn't want to start over so that he can play (they said he could play next game). He got so mad that they wouldn't let him play that he picked up the xbox and threw it. It is now broken. I think that we should replace the xbox for my kids instead of buying SS's Christmas presents. DH thinks that we should just replace the XBOX and still get SS's Christmas and just get all the kids less for Christmas (so that we have the money to buy the new XBOX.) I don't think it's fair to my kids to get less for Christmas so that we can replace the XBOX that SS broke. What do you think?

Me and DH are currently talking and we are thinking that another idea might be better. Instead of not giving him Christmas presents make him pay it off buy doing a certain list of chores each time he comes over for the next 5 months (only a couple hours each since, understandable, DH does want to spend time with him). In addition to making him do the chores, he can't use the new xbox, which we will have to buy, until he pays it off. Then I am also thinking that even then, he should have to ask my sons if he may use it since it is their's.

I think he should work it off and not be allowed to play with it.    Taking away Christmas is just cruel....he is 8 yrs old!  Christmas comes once a year.

No you just go to toysrus and its somewhere on there 99$ but you got to sign up for xbox live. So it would be like 120$ maybe I'm seeing it because I have the rewards card or something. But we got on for our boys and it was 99$ with the xbox live which was a little more.

Quoting sha_lyn68:

Maybe for black Friday or something, but the cheapest Xbox on their website is $199

Quoting Northcuttswifey:

Heck toysrus is having a special and they are 99 with a kinect

I don't see where everyone keeps say 300 I know for a fact you can buy an new xbox 360 for just over $100...(I just bought a brand new for 139)But my question is how old was the xbox because in reality all  you can get is the depreciation value of it..any court of law will tell you if it is 3 years old then all your entitled to is what a 3 year old xbox would cost
