I use the X-Box as a Video player and when the nephews / nieces visit, they have something to do other than clean fishing reels. Plus, Halo is the nutz.

I will be glad to sell you a Wii, with box, with two controls Madden '08, Wii Sports, and Super Paper Mario for a VERY good price. Let me know.

This is a no brainer; for a gaming system appropriate for kids that age, Nintendo. I would not buy any additional games besides the free Mario Bros game that comes with the system...unless YOU want a particular game.

Get a Wii. They'll like it; you'll LOVE it.

The Wii is the best, my son and wife play video games and we have an x-box, a PS something, a game cube and all of them are collecting dust since we got the Wii.

I have WII, my Niece comes over and we play WII sports and Tiger Woods Golf. She is 8. Its alot of fun. I am going out to pick up Mario Party tonight, she has it at home and I can't let her get better then me. We both also have Nintendo DS, my GF gets mad at me when we play mario vs each other in the car when we go somewhere for over an hour

And yeah, drunkin new years WII Bowling is alot of fun, not too mention the baseball. Last new years people I turned on the WII and before we knew it we had a bowling tournament, the even rolled up the carpet on my hardwoods so they could slide in thier socks.

For 9 and 6 get the Wii.

If you have HD tv and want HD movies..get the PS3.
