Ok, I need some advice here.
My son (8 yrs old) has only had a GameCube until this year. He received a Nintendo Wii for his 1st communion earlier this year and enjoys playing Wii Sports (the only Wii disc he has). He still plays his GameCube games on his GameCube (in his room) and on the Wii (in the kids TV room). A friend of his across the street has Madden '07 on Wii and my son didn't like playing it on Wii. He said it's better on GameCube or PS2 (not sure why he thinks that, maybe it's too hard for him
). Anyway, he wants to spend all of the money he's saved up to buy a PS2 so he can play Guitar Hero and so that he can buy Madden '08 and NCAA '08 for the PS2 and play those. My thinking is that he's already got 2 gaming systems now, why add another? On the other hand, he can't get NCAA '08 on GameCube because they no longer make those franchise of games for GameCube, and those are his favorite games (he plays NCAA '03 on GameCube constantly). Should I let him go ahead and spend all the money he's saved on a PS2, Guitar Hero and the 2 new football games for PS2? Or should I offer to throw in 1/2 of the cost and get a PS3? Does Guitar Hero work with PS3? I would imagine it would have backward logic built in like the Wii does (for GameCube games). Just wanting some advice on this. If PS2 is a dying game console I don't want him wasting all his money on it, but he does enjoy playing Guitar Hero, Madden, and NCAA games on PS2 and he can't play any of those games on the current Wii system he has. Any advice appreciated.
