we have had the thought of buying a console to distract them occasionally and would appreciate some advice from those of you that haven't had a gaggle of offspring and have the time to do what they want.
anyway, given the range of ages of the kids I thought that games that they can play that make them use there bodies instead of controllers would be good.
Its not for me but I wouldn't mind playing occasionally.
the kids experience with consoles is mostly playing wii sports when we visit cousins.
I'm leaning to a PS4 but I can't really justify why.
Xbox one has recieved far more updates than the ps4 has but most of them are geared towards media and entertainment.
Should mention that the "Playstation TV" releases soon at a price point of $149 and will allow you to steam your PS4 games over local wifi to another HDMI enabled TV in the house. Might be great for when the kids/wife are using the main TV. I use remote play to my PS Vita all the time and its pretty cool to be able to still play the playstation while the TV is in use.

I much prefer the Dualshock 4 over the Dualshock 3 but the xbox one controller takes the cake imo. If none of the above (ps4 biased obviously) sways your decision then your best bet is to just look over the upcoming exclusives and go from there.
Sony has destroyed Microsoft the gen in terms of pricing.
I could maybe see the lightbar breaking if it were hit at the right angle but it would be pretty difficult. The Launch consoles had issue's with the thumbstick grip wearing down (gotta get my controller replaced under warranty) but apparently that is fixed in current revisions. Other than that I feel it would be pretty hard to break one from tossing it and the trigger buttons feel alot more solid than they do on the DS3.Are the DS4 controllers solid.enough that children won't destroy them easily?
