Best console for an 8 year old?

I know. I'm a bit ashamed about it all, but it's heavily regulated. Or was until he started sneaking off with it to rinse Fifa & ultimately murder the battery to death.

No to Muckdonalds, but yes to panini stickers.

SC, it was absolutely not a comment on any parenting - my boy is the same. I was simply trying to be smart re the console/console thing

With the schools now shut I’m looking for ways for my 9 year old to stay in contact with his mates. I was thinking of getting a console to allow him to do this but have just realised I don’t know anything about gaming anymore. Bring back the Sinclair Spectrum!

His best mate has a PS4 and they all like minecraft. Can they voice chat in minecraft and can they do this in a world where it’s invite only, so there is no risk Jimmy Saville types polling up?

Would he have to have a PS4 or could this also be done on an Xbox?

Any help much appreciated.

You can create private game parties on Xbox One and make them invitation only.

Once you have created a party the party leader can instigate party chat which allows your party members to freely chat whilst playing.

You need an Xbox Live subscription to play online which costs about £40 a year.

Thanks for the info.
Presumably all players in this scenario would need an Xbox or does this work across multi platform?

Don't get an Xbox. There's a reason why the PS4 has sold 60M more units.

Buy yourself Bloodborne while you're at it too.

If he ever wants to play an Xbox game it will be available on the PC.

He will need a PS4 plus a headset to play with his mate.

Unless he has a 4K screen he doesnít need a PS4 pro neither. Just a bog standard one will do.

Not all necessarily the cheapest you could fine these items but an indicator of the cost.


Cheers.

Once he has a PS4 with head set and minecraft, is it easy enough to link up with his mate? Do I need a subscription or anything?

Yeh mate. Just needs his best pals username on the PS4. They then can add each others accounts to their PS4 friends list and invite each mother Minecraft and other games.

You sons friend will talk him through most of it, I imagine.

Either of them can then host a private map of mine craft where they can play the game together away from the rest of the world, or they can join public servers and play with others.

If they go public youíll just need to keep an ear to the ground on the tone of conversation. Itís unlikely but certainly possible to stumble across weirdos and abusive knobheads. These people can be blocked and reported though.


You may need a PS4 live subscription to go on line with a PS4. You definitely do with the Xbox however not owned a PS4 yet so canít be sure. Wouldnít be unusual if you did require one. Normally like 50 quid a year or a tenner for 3 months etc.

Great thanks.

I had heard somewhere that there is some kind of added complication with minecraft on the PS4 compared with other games, I.e. fortnite, when networking/hosting. Are you aware of anything?

Thanks everybody. Got this setup now on PS4 now. Son is now busy killing zombies with his mates. Not sure if he can voice chat to his mates on minecraft (his headset has not arrived in the post yet). But they are doing this via Skype while playing instead.

Just got a Nintendo Switch myself and it is great. Having a handheld and a console in one package is surprisingly useful and would be great for a kid on car journeys or on holiday.
