Call the kids, grab a controller, and get some family fun time with an Xbox 360 Elite!
Do you have gamers in your household?
I have one gamer in the making — my eight year old son. He loves all kinds of video games! I am careful to limit his time playing video games and make sure he stays active in sports, playing the piano and hanging out with friends, etc., but I do indulge his passion for gaming too.
So, when we got the chance to test out the new Xbox 360 Elite Bundle, you can imagine the screams of joy and gratitude: “You have the BEST job Mom!!!”
But the squeals were quickly replaced by intense concentration as Jackson got down to business putting the Xbox 360 to work. Yes, I have a committed video game tester in my home and the Xbox 360 Elite did not disappoint!
I also have Susan’s husband Rob, a life long gamer, to come and set up the Xbox 360 Elite and enjoy it to the fullest along with Jackson. (Jackson and his Uncle Rob have a deep video game bond, which first started on Rob’s Xbox when Jackson was just two years old. They are just so cute together!)
Now, as disinterested as I am personally in video games, the Xbox 360 Elite can seriously sway me over. The Xbox 360 Elite can provide the whole family (non-gamers too!) with entertainment — sharing pictures, social networking, streaming movies from Netflix and more!
Yes, with Xbox Live, the online gaming and entertainment service for your Xbox 360, you can do so much with your Xbox 360. Movies, Music, Twitter, Facebook, etc., — it is a whole world waiting right in your Xbox 360!
But perhaps what I appreciated most when researching and testing the Xbox 360 is the fantastic resource for parents called www.GetGameSmart.com where parents can learn how to set parental controls on the Xbox 360 and find tools like The PACT and The Pledge to help families establish healthy boundaries and rules for the technology in their homes.
Get Game Smart is packed with tips and ideas — I highly recommend checking it out.
