OK so my DH and I are trying to decide if we want to get our boys (ages 9-6) an xbox 360 OR individual tablets for Christmas. We're on a pretty tight budget considering we have 3 kids so this will be the only big gift they get from us. We're not fighting about it but we just can't decide. And No we can't afford an xbox one. 

Tablets would be cheaper (you can get decent ones for around 50 each)

But 360 is something we could all have fun on as a family.

What do you ladies think? And do you have any websites that can help me compare prices?

I voted tablet because: cheaper. Either way they should be grateful.

I would go with tablets. Fewer and fewer games will be sold for a standard 360. If you think they will want more games in the future, I would just hold off on it and go with tablets where you can frequently update games and content.

First off, I'd like to argue you cannot get decent tablets for $50 Maybe  $100 starting. That said I'd get them each their own tablet. It can be their own computer and e book reader.

I wish it was! I honestly just want to get the wii that we have fixed and upgraded and get a bunch of new games for it but DH says absolutely not. He wants something he can play too if we're going to mess with a console system at all.

Do they share well, or do things together? The Xbox could cause a lot of problems if they argue. . But the tablets could be no fun if they like doing things together....

I'd go for the Xbox,just because then you can grab some games and have fub
