Hi parents,

I want to get a game console for my toddler and parents but don't know which to go for. I'm picturing my parents and toddler getting a good workout in front of TV. :lol: So I'm looking at sports activities and dancing games :rahrah: mainly. Any recommendation?

:thankyou:

Thanks Dreamgear. I took a quick look at the kinect games... ... looks quite vigorous for my parents. :lol: Do they have something with a slower motion like tennis, golf, hula hoop, sailing, football, tai-chi(have such game?)...etc

Does it require add-on accessories to play the games?

There are 2 types of xbox one consoles in the market. You need to get the one with the kinect sensor. No other add on needed

Thanks!

Sorry a newbie question, I remembered when I was a kid, I find interesting games on Sega but can't be played on Nintendo and felt cheated. :lol:

Is it better to check on the games available for different game consoles first or I can just decide mainly by the game system?

I did a quick check, the price of Xbox One Kinect Console Bundle – Halo (White: Limited Edition): The Master Chief Collection is selling $739.00 Is this the standard price? Are there any stores that have regular promotions or sales that I can look out for?
