I had a few problems with my parents. My mum still isn't overly happy with it. (Although neither of them are overly impressed by the way my L85 has constantly broken or died...)

But - yet another solution.
X-station-3-play360-box or whatever they are - cost about 150-400.
Airsoft guns - cost about 120 to 500.

A games console costs about the same as an airsoft gun. But - an airsoft gun, takes you out into the wide outdoors and fresh air (usually) and helps you improve minor technical skills. A games console, does not. You sit, for hours on end, in a small, dark room. No exercise.
Therefore - airsoft = good sport! :lol:

It worked for me!

Shhhhh you are undermining the argument. My mother came into my room the other day to find me with 3 guns on the floor as I was cleaning them, barely even dropped a word so I am guessing she is now ok with them. Parents (unless they are the ones I serve on a regular basis) on the whole want the best for their kids, and when their child asks "can I have a gun" it sets all sort of alarm bells off.

ah yes, but with a console you can spend 30-60 every 4 weeks or so on a new game (even more around november when the games are all released at once)
