    You're never too old to enjoy any passtime really (unless it's physical and the old bones just don't work anymore), you're certainly never too old to be a big kid with video games!.

    Just looking at her smile makes me wish my gran was still alive to try out some of the amazing stuff we all take for granted these days.

    Good for her!, hope she lives to a ripe old age to see the launch of the Playstation 79.
