I bought a Wii U because it's the only next gen traditional console that offers something drastically different (Nintendo in HD) that I don't own.

I already have a pile of PS3 and 360 games in my backlog and like others have mentioned I will probably build a gaming PC to play the more recent stuff.

Eventually I'll own all 3 consoles but that will probably be in two years after a console revision (slimmed down versions) and price drop.

Priorities are Playstation and then Xbox. Nintendo's dead to me and PC doesn't count.

I voted all of them, but will probably wait at least a year after launch to buy them. I've got a crazy backlog, and I don't want to be burned when the Slim models come out. As far as which I'll get first, well I've always been a Sony guy, and PS4 is looking GOOD. I'll pick up a Wii U when it either A. drops to $200 or less and/or B. Has Smash Bros and an awesome 3D Mario game. Nextbox, well probably not until it's cheap. I only got a 360 last october, and thar was mostly because of the awesome bundle. Microsoft just doesn't have as many exclusives that I care about.

EDIT: forgot to note, I'm very interested in the Steam Box. And curious about the OUYA (I know, I know)

Considering we know the price on only one of them (Wii U and I'm already betting its Deluxe will be the cheapest by a minimum of $75, maybe $100+), it's too early to say, but it's a safe bet PS4 and NextBox will be expensive. Tech like that does not come cheap, so no one start kidding themselves. I'm already getting the feeling Sony will pull another "buy a Ferrari" garbage and price the PS4 at $450. Maybe even $500+.

In any case, I have plenty of games sitting around that I have yet to play, so...

Waiting for SEVERE price reductions before I even consider another console (the exception is if GCs, in excess of $75, are offered).

Once the PS4 gets to the $299 price-point then I'll likely bite but, honestly, I'm tired of setting aside backwards compatibility in favor of new hardware as I actually do play old games all the time. (going through Final Fantasy Tactics PS1 again right now in fact)

I'm most excited about the Steambox when it comes to the console space next-gen as I'll be able to make it play decades worth of console and PC games. But I'm moving toward being as digital as possible so that makes the most sense for me going forward.

I told myself that I'll move to PC gaming on Steam for the next gen console. Digital games are way cheaper in price as there are tons of bundles that get package together during sale seasons. I'm still going to get all the next gen consoles just for exclusives. We'll see how that'll work out for me.

I'll probably only get the next Xbox. It is the machine I game on the most (vast majority of friends are on it) and have zero issue paying for XBLG. Might pick up WiiU when its cheap eventually.

So far my choice is PS4 day 1, I love the PlayStation and with Microsoft screwing most people over I don't plan on getting the next Xbox. Now I have to convince my friends that I am right.

Speaking as someone who primarily console games, I have never been more skeptical of a new console generation thanks to rrods, ylods and online passes of this console current/last generation and rumors that the big 2 will require a constant Internet connections and/or prohibit used gaming.

As for the wiiu, I would be enticed by a spiritual successor to Mario Galaxy and F-Zero maybe. Digital games being tied to one system is quite unacceptable though.

I imagine that the next generation of graphically intensive PC games will be rife with anti-consumer precedents as well, like single player games that only work when connected to a server and social media.

Retro/indie gaming it is!

S... and rumors that the big 2 will require a constant Internet connections and/or prohibit used gaming.


Sony already announced that the PS4 doesn't have to be online all the time. I'd be surprised if MS went that route since Sony didn't.

I hope to get the new Xbox maybe around holiday 2014 or so. I still have plenty of current gen (and earlier) games to play so I'm in no hurry. But I do want one. A definite system seller for me would be a new Mass Effect or Final Fantasy game.

Sony didn't impress me at all at their conference. I'm sure I'll get a PS4 eventually to catch up on the Uncharted series, but that may be a long way off.

There don't seem to be many people interested in just two. It's generally one or all. Apparently, once you've made the jump to multiple devices its a natural progression to get all of them.

Well, next gen isn't going to have the issue of getting a Nintendo console and another one for the multiplatform titles that didn't come out for the Wii.

Just so you know, PS4 is confirmed as not being backwards compatible. So you should probably pick up a PS3 if you want to play Uncharted one day

I'll probably regret asking this but how is MS "screwing most people over?"

PS4 for me most likely. Unless Xbox announces something amazing or Playstation fucks anything up between here and now.
