Welcome, I hope that you have a great time with the console. Be ready to spends some money with the amount of great games coming out in the near future. And if you a Gamestop in the area, get a PowerUp Rewards card.
Also, you can try out the soon to be new features of the Kinect coming this Fall. Just find the Kinect Fun Labs on the dashboard, you can download other applications for it and it is all free. And the best part MS gives away free
achievements with these applications.
Definately check out the parental settings. Depending on how old your son is, you may want to shield him from some of the crazyiness that is xbox live! My son's settings are: I approve friend requests (they are currently people we know in real life and
occasionally friends of friends), I have voice communication to friends only, and status visable to friends only!
Thanks for the tips all he is 11 years old. He loves it and cant get him off it lol . I must admit i have been having a go myself on the Kinect sports games and am hooked on the bowling and am having loads of fun x .
