                    My nephews are both into the online gaming thing, one is 10, the other 7. My concern is that you never know who you are dealing with, it could be all innocent and its kids talking and playing with kids.....but then again it could be a sicko preying on the fact that there may be young impressionable kids online.
                    It may be an unfounded concern, but it worried me a smidgen.

                      What happened to crashing pushbikes, making go carts and getting covered in mud and going places you know your not supposed to be!

                      Its maybe just me but ive always avoided games consoles, saw it as a massive waste of time. But maybe im missing out

                        True Brendan, my nephews sit in a darkened room (it has no windows and they turn the lights out for more "effect") for hours on end. All they are interested in are xbox and football....ok they're just kids, when I was 10 I could fully service a car, repair bikes and strip engines. Weekends were spent with my Dad learning his trade and getting oily!
                        Ok were talking more than 2 decades ago when home consoles most advanced game was tennis on the Atari (never had one o' those either).
                        I'm not saying that all kids are the same, but no wonder the younger generation don't want to work for a living, they're quite happy sitting on their backsides pressing buttons and expecting to get paid for it......says me sitting bashing away at a laptop

                        Sorry for the thread hijack thumper, Xboxes/PS3s etc are great fun, just not my cup of tea. I'm sure if Aliens do attack or the Navy Seals invent drones that need online controllers then we already have plenty youngsters trained in the art of warfare

                              Thats what i like to hear

                              When i was 10 i was mainly crashing a honda C50 repeatedly in fields over jumps and into my mums MK2 cavalier I can see why people in cities ect would entertain themselves with games consoles and i do enjoy a shot on other peoples ones but its just for half an hour! When i come to think of it my childhood was mainly void of computerised entertainment because i couldnt afford it!
