xbox 360 vs PS4/one

We've got a 1st gen xbox 360 that my 7 year old loves dearly (rayman, minecraft, random demos etc) but is on its last legs. He has also taken my PC for his own and loves his Garrysmod/Minecraft shenanigans with mods galore.

I could happily spend £300 on an xbox one but can't really see what he'd play on it that he can't get on the xbox 360.

So, do I just get him a newer secondhand Xbox 360 and cheapish LCD tv so he can have it in his room (and impress his mates)?

Or get him an Xbox One/PS4 that will live in the front room and barely get played cos the games are all AAA 18+ affairs.

I may be biased...

PS: If anyone has a cheap xbox 360 for sale...

PPS: I'm sticking this on woos too.

Id go 360 but then its only a little over hundred more for an X1 in sales so ahunno. Current gen is still shaky as all hell game lineup wise but it futureproofs. Vita with Minecraft? ^_^

He does absolutely love minecraft but he's got a decent enough PC and a big part of it for him is the youtube shizzle followed by random mods. (I get home most nights to a shopping list of mods to install)

Have you checked to see if any of the games he plays on the 360 are backwards compatible with the One?

some are not all, I think I've tracked down a cheapy 360 250GB so will get him that and a TV for christmas and can always splurge on an xbox one/ps4 in the summer.
