This may be a “last year” gift but I think it might be a good game for kids. There are very few differences in the two game consoles. I’m going to list the pros and cons of the two consoles. The pros of the Xbox 360 is that their company, Microsoft, is the only one that can play the Halo games. Now if you have the original Halo that was made to play on the original Xbox, the original Halo can be played on the Xbox 360. This is also true for Halo 2 which is also made for the original Xbox.
Now if you don’t care about the Halo games, then the PlayStation is perfect for you and it has a better quality than the Xbox. I also think that the Xbox was made more for kids because the dashboard is more cartoony to me because it has Avatars you can make. On the PlayStation you don’t have an Avatar and it is more realistic. The cons of the Xbox are that it does not have as good visual quality, what I mean is that the Xbox does not look as real as the PlayStation. But the PlayStation has horrible online play.
Now online play is when you play with other people online, but can glitch out if someone has bad internet. The PlayStation may have great internet connection but it will still not be as good as the Xbox. If you want to know what is the best in my opinion, I think that the Xbox is better, but it is all based on a personal opinion, so if you want to know what is better you will have to find out on your own.
