Yes, I've asked similar questions about this under tablets, and just pc gaming.  I am also curious about gaming consoles

like Xbox, playstation, and wii.  I currently have the wii and that is pretty good fun for kids/pre-teens in multiplayer games and options.


I was wondering if anyone can recommend anything better than the wii?  Is Xbox kinetic better than the wii?  Does PS4 have a lot of 

multiplayer options too where 4+ people can play together at the same time?


Should I just stick with the wii and buy add on options like steering wheels, and what other accessory controllers are out there for the will to enhance the gameplay experience?




should I even look into VR units?  Are they available now?  Is Oculus Rift good for kids and multiplayer games or are there any more affordable VR units/consoles out there?

Don't bother with VR, it is still deep in development.


Xbox Kinect was a failure, in terms of games. Too late to the business and nothing to make it distinct from the Wii. It succeeded elsewhere.


There are a number of options for 2-4 players games on PS4 and the Xbox One. Diablo 3 springs to mind. As do sports games. Sadly, "couch-coop" games are dying, since there is a strong trend towards online gaming. The Steam platform (PC platform) is swelling with couch coop games these days. I hope this new SteamOS thing will usher in a new era of local multiplayer games.
