Will you buy one at launch and if so, why?

For me, I'd prefer (like most CAG's) to pay as little as possible. I won't buy any console over 400 until it lowers in price. $400 (399.99) is still pretty high so they'd have to have some damn convincing games at launch. If they had Alan Wake 2 as a launch title I'd be pretty tempted. I didn't buy a Wii U because it had nothing, if it had an Earthbound U at launch, I would have bought it immediately. For PS4, if they had a game like Ni No Kuni I'd be pretty tempted.

For the next Xbox if they have one of the following games, I'd be tempted to buy it at launch:
Alan Wake 2
new Elder Scrolls game
Fable 4
Mass Effect 4
Gears 5
Dragon Age 3

Of that list, if there was at least 3 of these launching with the new Xbox, I would get it. If there were at least 2 they would have to be Alan Wake 2 and the Elder Scrolls game. If it's only one of that list, I won't buy it but would be tempted. I won't go into greater detail for the other consoles since this isn't the right forum, just wanted to throw out some of my favorites.

It's also possible that a new IP could be added to that list if they announce some new stuff.

I usually don't either. I have a decent backlog to play through while waiting for a price drop. It's very unlikely that they'd have enough games to convince me to buy anyway.

Depends where I'm at in life. I'd like one, and if there are good launch titles then I might, but I won't go out of my way to grab one. If I can snag it on Amazon great, but I'll be done with the police academy by August so there is no way of knowing what I'll be doing. Battlefield 4 at or near launch will be the main thing I'm looking for.

I'd rather not buy a launch Xbox, but we will see... I had lots of problems with my launch 360, so I'm just worried that it might happen again.

No. I have too many games and too many systems that I don't play now.

I will not buy it at launch so I can cry about a companies sales for 5 months and look like a douche bag on a daily basis.

No. I'll work through my backlog until at least the first price drop and see whether I want the next Xbox or ps4 at that point as I'll only have one console for sure next gen.

at this stage in my life, with a wife and kids, I have plenty of backlog that I don't have enough time for, so the real answer is no.

Release a game that's original and not a first person shooter; also don't charge for online play...then I will think about it; but still not at launch.

I only have a xbox for Alan Wake so personally I would love a sequel to it!

Depends on the games. I Got to admit though and even I'm shocked and weirded out by this, but if Dance Central 4 is a launch title...then I'll get it.

Kind of unfair to judge unreleased hardware based on issues from 10 years ago dont ya think?

Battlefield 4 = yes. If there's any game that you end up paying less than a dollar per hour of gameplay for, then it's worth it no matter what.

My mind right now is made up in getting a PS4. However, like I did with the current gen I'd probably have both down the line to play any exclusives.

Problem is this..... with the a lot of people getting burnt from the RROD, I am sure people are going to be cautious, which will probably hurt MS at first. I've been thru 4 360's before they finally came up with a redesigned the minimized the problem. If it wasn't for that Microcenter promo back in 2007, I would have been really hurting in my pocket.

Word is that the next Call of Duty will be for Next Gen only, which is gonna piss off A LOT of people. If they really want to force us on Next Gen now, they could start shutting down servers for previous COD games. I for one am not going to jump on the next gen wagon for another 2 or 3 years until the price hits under 300 dollars and atleast one redesign.

I will not buy for at least the first year..if not longer. The main reasons are its to expensive, possible hardware failure, and of course, my big ass backlog.

The things that might make me reconsider would be releasing The Witcher 3, Condemned 3, Pgr 5, Alan Wake 2, Tge Walking Dead Season Two and/or a Suda 51 within the first 6 months of launch.

But if they decide to do the whole ban used games and online at all times crap then I'll just get a PS4 or Wii-U

Nope. Have a decent backlog and will wait for a price drop. Only way I'll buy a next-gen at or near launch is if the new Mass Effect game and Fallout 4 are launch titles.

No, for all the same reasons people have stated. I have a huge (900+) backlog to work on, I want to see how the prices shake out on the new consoles, want to see if MS can make a console that isn't going to die within a year etc

I intend to wait at least a year this time, maybe more.

900? Is this steam you're talking about? I doubt I could find 900 games on all three consoles that I want to play...

I will say that I will wait and then end up owning one within the first few months after launch barring extreme shortages.

I am in the same boat with on this one here. Wife, kids and now going back to school and like you my back log is starting to get pretty big for myself. But if fallout three comes out I am so buying one and it would be great if a fallout theam xbox comes out.
