    honestly, if you can justify spending 350 on a console, then 60 dollars on games go with an Xbox360. sounds like it will fit your son's gaming needs a lot better than a Wii will. but if you like the idea of the 250 price tag (us) than there are 2 tony hawk games available.

    to answer your question about the Wii Remote, the nunchuch is an attachment that plugs into the remote, making it one complete controller, but for mini games like wii sports its not required, for full length games, 90% of the time you need the nunchuck.

    there's a new star wars game coming otu for Wii (probably early next year) other than that i dont think theres a lego game on the Wii.

    the console is very kid friendly and im you could deffinately have fun with it too. theres a few WWII shooters out and the new Medal of Honor is comint out in november so watch for that one (online, 32 players)

    as far as war games for a five year old go stay away from call of duty 3, the "motion controls" on some of the parts (claymores, mortor controls) are gimicky and i had trouble with them for a while, they just ticked me off and im seventeen lol.

    medal of honor: vanguard wasnt too violent though, he might like that. easy enough to control and play through.



    umm thats about it, if u need anymore help just ask.

    that should cover his star wars, ww2, and tony hawk needs for sure!

    you can also get a came cube controller or 2 which are about $15-$20 each and get the gamecube lego/regular star wars games to hold them off till the Wii edition comes out and those games are definitely available used so they're somewhere in the $20 ballpark.
    Generally every platform will have essensially the same thing, one might have a specific game like skate, but that doesn't mean the other platforms won't have similar games such as Tony Hawk. that goes for the not ultraviolent but still war games.
    Basically it comes down to what you feel like spending and how easily accessible the item is. As everyone here knows Wii's are a lot harder to find than an XBox 360 or PS3, but they also cost a decent amount less.
    Wii-$250
    Wii Play- $50
    Nunchuck-$20
    2 Game Cube Controllers- $40(total)
    so before going nuts on games you're looking at $360 for the Wii system but that's with an extra controller complete setup the Gamecube controllers and 2 different collections of minigames.

    For a PS3 you're looking at a minimum of $450 for just the system and 1 controller- no games of any kind

    For the XBox 360 you're looking at a min of $350, again 1 controller and no games- but you do get a headset(unless you can find a core system which from my limited XBox knowledge the no longer make(also from my limited knowledge of XBox, isn't microsolf releasing the revised XBox 360, i forget the new name of it, soon which unlike the regular 360 will NOT constantly break?)



    it's basically up to how much money you want to spend versus how hard you want to look for the system. I've played all 3 and i have more fun playing Wii than the other 2 systems. All of them have their short comings though, wii with it's lack of online gaming, headset support, etc. but my opinion is that i'd rather wait for that than wait for my XBox to get done being repaired and PS3 just doesn't have all that many games out yet(atleast not that i'm overly interested in, i know that'll change in the future, which is when i'll start considering buying one.)

    Its kind of funny that the Wii is often labelled as a 'kiddys console' yet there are lots of people here saying the 360 or PS3 would be better for 5 and 8 year olds.

    No Skate on Wii. There are a couple of Tony Hawk games, i think they use controls similar to the other games except for waving the Wiimote to do tricks.

    War games, Wii has Call of Duty and Medal of Honor: Vanguard. Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 comes out soon with an onrails option so you just point and shoot with the Wiimote, so it should be easier for little kids. Battalion Wars 2 looks like a suitable war game for kids too.

    Godzilla: Unleashed comes out on Wii in November.

    For Star Wars games the Wii is getting Lego Star Wars which is basically the 2 previous games combined and will let you wave the Wiimote for characters with lightsabers. There were also 5 Star Wars games on the Gamecube that can be played on Wii (including the excellent Rogue Squadron games).

    There are lots of other kid friendly games on Wii as well, Mario games etc.

    Im not sure about the range of games suitable for 5 and 8 year olds on 360 as the only 360 games that i really know of (other than multiplatform games) are Gears of War, Bioshock and Halo.

    I wouldnt recommend the PS3 at all for 5 or 8 year olds, except for that it plays PS2 games. It seems more marketed towards multimedia users and mature gamers than kids.

    If you are willing to spend PS3 kind of money though you could almost buy both a Wii and a 360 and have the best of both worlds.

    wii is a kiddy system cause its best games (which are from nintendo) are influenced by kids, therefore its "kiddy".
