I am stating for the record - I will never buy my boys a modern video game system. And I will try my hardest not to let Eric buy them one either. This is what I used (loved every minute of it) and this is what they will have to use as well. I think this may have even been the same tv I played on in Wichita - am I right sisters? This whole console and all the games were packed neatly in a box ready to move until Sunday night when Eric opened it, rude.
