I would agree with Jimmienomam as well. In my personal opinion, Xbox with Kinect would be the best choice. Kinect Sports, Kinect Adventures, and Dance Central would be fun games for younger kids. I bet your girls would have an absolute BLAST playing Dance Central!
As they get older, they also can take advantage of using the 360 for gaming (and not just your son!). I think in the future, the advances of Kinect will surpass any attempts from Sony or Nintendo in terms of motion gaming, if this is a driving factor in your decision.
I admit, as Jimmie knows, I am a huge Xbox gamer! I also like to encourage girls to game, as it is not just for boys anymore.
Your whole family would have so much fun for many years with an Xbox and Kinect! Hope that helps and good luck!!

David, to offer a different opinon, I would suggest the Wii. You sound like you have limited gaming experience and the wii is a simple, kid friendly system. I find the game choice are a lot better for families and priced better as well. With the xbox 360, you will have to pay more for the system, the kinect feature as well and the game choices are a little limited. I think the wii is a more reliable device as well with children. The controllers for the wii do eat up batteries, while the xbox's recharge and for the kinect games you are the controller, but overall I would suggest the wii for a family with younger children.
