The games on the Wii are more kid friendly. Plus, younger kids find simple gaming much more fun. Wii sports kept me entertained for hours. But I now really enjoy gaming with better graphics and good storylines. I would go for the PS3 when they get older. Better graphics and free Internet. Yes, I know Halo Reach is not out for the PS3 but that game shouldn't stop you from saving tons of money with free Internet.
