I feel so old.  But.... The kids want an X Box to play Minecraft, etc.  So what do I need to get?  There are so many options!  360?  Kinect?

We have the Xbox 360 with Kinect. My husband and son love it! We got it almost 4 Xmas's ago and we do not plan on getting anything else anytime soon, can't afford it anyway.
I would definitely get the 360 w/ Kinect, there are so many games for the kids that are super fun and require it to play.

You just need an Xbox 360. Minecraft isn't out on the Xbox One yet.

You won't needed a kinect for minecraft either, although a bundle is cheaper now.

Each child should have a Xbox live account so they can play together spilt screen or with their own set of friends.

Thank you!  What's "standard" vs "digital entertainment?"

I would get that Bundle from QVC.com

You can make payments on it so you not spending alot today plus it comes with a really fun game.

You can get the minecraft game at Game stop or download it directly onto your Xbox. You will have to get 2 copies of it if you get each of them their own live account.

The only issue is he already has Swapforce for the Wii.  But I'll look at that. Helps to know pricing!

You can't use swap force for the Wii on the 360. You might be able to use the characters, but you can't use the portal or disc. The game will also look better then it does on the wii.

Exactly. I'm not buying a game he already has for the Wii though.  That's my point.

I seriously have to buy two Minecraft games to get them both profiles?  Ugh.  this is why I just do Mario Kart.
