DS is 10 and want to upgrade his old wii. Should we get a 360 or a one? My understanding is that if he wants to communicate with friends, they all need the same platform. Can the 360 games be used one a one? Many thanks!

no you can't use the 360 games on the xbox one and there arent that many xbox one games about especially for children. I would probably go for the 360

Stick to the 360 for that age.. There are a lot more games.

No backwards compatability annoyingly. I'm irritated I'm being forced to upgrade.

Doesn't the 306 have the facility to 'host private parties', where you only have invited friends into the game to play with you? Just a did a quick google and you seem to be able to invite up to 7 guests to watch movies, play a game, chat etc. You would require unlimited internet access as consoles seem to suck up a lot of broadband.

Really appreciate your input. Have persuaded ds in the direction of a 360 on the grounds that his friends have one and if he chooses a One he won't be able to communicate with them!!
