 My son wants an Xbox for Christmas.  I know nothing about them!  Help, please!  Which one do I get?  Do I need to buy extra controls?

Get the one with the kinect built in and i would get an extra remote to play with friends and family ... Kinect is hands free and it's awesome it senses his movements he is the controller ... Keeps kids active

I personally like the white ones but they are not the black  newer ones.  Your best bet is to get the bigger hard drive because saving takes memory.  Buy the controllers that are wireless and buy the rechargeable batterys. ummmm and if you are going to do xbox live where they can play with others online by the year subscribtion its cheaper.   Yes at least get two controllers.

 We are looking into getting a Xbox for Christmas for my children.  What I know is most packages only come with one controller, so you will need to purchase at least one more.  We are going to get three additional ones.  Purchase the one that has the Kenect with it as it is cheaper with a package.  As for size it depends on if you are wanting to download games or play on line.  If you want to have the ability to download games and play on line go for the larger 250 GB hard drive.  If you do not really care about this ability stick with the 4 GB as you will save about $100.00, to my knowledge the hard drive is not upgradable.

Get the black 250 gb Xbox 360, buy an extra controller. The rest would depend on how much of a gamer he is.

Get the Xbox 360 it's $199.99. It will come with 1 controller. Another controller is around $30 - 50.  If you want the kinect you can get it bundled with the xbox for about $299.99.  I usually go to GameStop to get my consoles and games. They have a program where you can trade back in the games for cash or credits when the kids beat them.

Now the Xbox 360 250GB is 299 by itself.

X box 360 elite with the kinect. We got the 4 gb because it was cheaper and bought a 250 gb hard drive for it brand new on ebay when we needed extra memory. I would at least buy one extra controller and maybe a head set because talking to people through the kinect sucks.
