Jay (aged 3) is beginning to dominate my laptop by playing Elmo and associated Sesame Street things online. Georgia (aged 5) then takes over and shows him how it's really done!
This has set me thinking.....time for a Video Game Console?
I'm a Video Game Console virgin. Never owned or used a game console, except for the original Pong type thing in the 70s, and a ZX Spectrum with JetPac! Yeh sure, addicted to Space Invaders, and Tetris, but never on my own console.
So is it time for the kids to become addicted? And which is it? Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, or a previous generation console, or build a PC!! I won't use it much other than to beat them at their own games!! And by the time they're a bit older, it will be time for the next generation anyway.
My gut feel tells me Nintendo Wii. All the classic games, plus a bit of movement. Can I get the classic games? Super Mario Kart No desire for media friendly discs and HD. Probably attach to their TV. So nothing fancy.
Or shall I put off the day and not get them addicted before their time?
