Its simple - if he is a gamer its a X box if he just wants something to play with its a Wii !

xbox 360 all the way. Graphics are far superior.Games are great.I would highly recommend Oblivion!! Call of Duty4 is unbelievable, like playing in a movie. The wii is a more of a novelty i think.If he's a gamer he will get bored of the Wii VERY quickly.

Wii Definitely - we have one and it's great fun.. Wii has won loads of awards compared to the other consoles.
