Since the first day I got it, I played games and watched DVDs on it, I noticed that the quality was reducing. I didn't pick up certain CDs and DVDs. It gets extremely hot after a few hours of usage. I strongly do not recommend this for children because it is addictive and kind of expensive.
The games are expensive to buy. The controllers are not reliable, and it takes long to start playing games. The appearance is not pelasing, it only comes inw hite and black. It is mostly used to play DVDVs and CDs since some people do not see the idea of buying expensive games. Lots of school children abuse it, and damage their eyes, and drasticly drcrease their perfromance in school.
Personally I like playing the games, but after a few hours you get bored, and you have to come off because the console becomes extremely hot. I would not recommend parents to buy these for their children. Most of my friends have one, and it got damged easily from just one hour of usage.
