It was a Christmas present for my eight year old and he loves it. The graphics are great and its easy to use. I would say that the games are limited at the moment and those that are available are not always suitable for an eight year old. Bit of a a faff setting it up with accounts etc and downloaded the need for speed game that came with the package. Take a look in GAME before you buy as they have a package which includes the new spiderman film for the same price I paid at Amazon.
