I am a father of two and I have been an avid console player my entire life. I invest in my childrens education in a number of way. I belong to abcmouse.com and I also purchase apps from the windows 8 app store. I really like the focus on educational apps for windows. Education has it's own catagory and it's very easy to search. What I would like to see is that same type of focus on the XB1. Don't get me wrong I love to play COD, AC4, Forza and soon to be Project Spark Beta just like everyone else but I believe technology is our future as well as the future of our educational system. XB1 has the capability to be the go to educational tool parents use. Personaly I would rather not plop my children infront of the TV and have them watch nickelodeon when they could be doing something that stretches their imagination and challenges them to become more intelligent all the while being far more entertaining than watching a TV show. Microsoft NEEDS to challenge developers to go beyond the standard console game formatts and create games that will ignite childrens creativity and their passion to learn. Parents will always invest in their children, I know I would be willing to pay for these apps/games should they ever come out.
