Christmas xbox question

My ds is already hinting he wants an xbox for Christmas as he loves the game Minecraft. I figure that I better do my homework as Im discovering that there are several different varieties of xbox consoles to choose from. We will most likely be using the xbox for netflix streaming too. Does anyone have any insight to which ones they personally like?confused

We have the 360. We bought one when they first came out and it just died last year. We bought another 360. If you want to stream netflix off xbox you'll need an xbox live account.

Then new xbox 1 is coming out too but I wouldn't buy that. The 360 is the best one.

Do they charge for the xbox live account or just charge if you buy a game off the account?

they charge you. You can get a month's membership is 19.99 (I think), than a 6 month one and a yearly one. I don't know those prices. You can go to gamestop and find out more. They sell used/refurbished electronics too, just make sure they work before you buy them.

When my husband got his the silver membership was free but you had to pay for the upgrade to gold ... Not sure if that is still true or not

We pay $9.99/month for xbox live. It's cheaper if you pay yearly, though. Also, where I live you can buy a preowned xbox 360 from Gamestop for $129.

We got one month free and than paid for three months. Once we bought the wii we started streaming netflix of that so we stopped paying for xbox live.

I know with the xbox 1 they were supposed to make it so you had to have xbox live to just play play games but I don't think they're doing that because it wouldn't sell as well.
