Ah I was wondering about that odd post you made there.
I'd say that's a good thing, your uncle sounds like he stopped maturing at age 14, he'd only be a detriment to that kid's life.
Sorry lol, I was jaded tired and had read the title as "Aids" not Ads and said f it and replied as such.
As for this topic, I kinda agree with a few others in here, it's a bit of a personal matter to be asking the opinions of on here in a public forum.
When it comes to kids with parents who don't get them cool things I think last gen systems should always be considered as gifts for them... I mean now you can give someone an xbox360 and about 20AAA games with it and it'll probably set you back about €50 value of hardware/software. If you're giving that to a teen who hasn't had a video game console then you are giving them a potential gift of all the best Halo titles, the gears trilogy+judgement, some amazing Forza titles... for effectively no loss of major assets.
