There's a lot of uproar over the Xbox One reveal. Given that, what consoles do you plan on buying based on what we know so far?

I've got a 3DS, so I'll be keeping that as there's lots I want to get and play.

No way I'll get a Wii U after getting, and ditching, a Wii twice this gen.

No PC gaming for me as I don't want a PC in my living room as the TV stand is too cluttered already, and I'm not gaming at my desk (after working at a desk all day) on a monitor instead of my 55" TV. A Steambox could be a possibility though if one ever comes out.

So, for now, it's between Xbox One and PS4 for me, or opting to skip the generation. I'm in wait and see mode there.

The 360 has been my most played console by far this generation, I love Gears and Halo, my friends and family game on Xbox and not PS3 etc. I also was intrigued by the TV stuff they showed--but I'm very skeptical it will work anywhere near that fast and seamlessly in switching modes, changing channels etc., and that it will end up locked into certain providers. I also don't like all the DRM rumors, used game fees etc. So definitely need more info there.

PS3 I've had for a year and a half. It's a solid system. I don't dig the exclusives as much as MS's, and don't care for the side by side sticks on that controller (which are similarly placed on the PS4 controller). But I could end up leaning that way if MS does have all the DRM, used game fees etc. and Sony doesn't. So again, in wait and see mode.

If both have all the fees and other BS I'll likely just stick with the 3DS, 360 and PS3 as I have plenty of highly reviewed games I've missed this generation to keep me busy for a while.

PS4 for me. I really grew tired of the 360 and didn't care very much for the games outside of Crackdown honestly. Their more media focused console doesn't interest me as cutting down on a couple button presses isn't worth the cost of what the Xbox will be.

Plus, now that I have a Vita, I'm interested to see the integration between that and the PS4. Hopefully it doesn't turn out as bad as the PSP/PS3 link did.

And I'm also interested to see the potential of the Steambox.

I chose PS4, at least for now. It's what has me the most excited for a new console. It just seems to me like PS Plus has been a better value than XBOX Live. I've really been considering going 1 console next gen as opposed to 3, to cut down on backlog. I also have a Vita (and loving it) so I'm interested to see what they bring to the table with that.

I also like the approach that Sony is taking in terms of courting indies, streaming services like Gaikai, PS Plus and pushing games above all else. At the end of the day that's what it's about. I've always been a strong Nintendo advocate but this generation I've lost interest, I'm even considering selling my 3DS because I just don't find myself playing it all that much. RE: Revelations and Super Mario Land were amazing but most of the newer stuff is a little too similar to the stuff I've played in the past from them. I'm just not feeling it.

I have a PC with a 5770 graphics card that does just fine currently so it could be an option to upgrade that down the road. Like some others though I don't have it hooked up to my main TV and although I enjoy it not sure I could ever be 100% a PC gamer. I'd be interested in a steambox but there are just too many unanswered questions with something like that. They want the hardware to be small and living room friendly but then you aren't going to get as powerful a machine like you could build on your own. I've toyed with the thought of building a smaller box with something like a Silverstone SG07 for the TV...not sure I want to do this though anymore....as like I said I'd like to keep it a bit simpler this gen.

I think with digital distribution and DRM issues this will be a growing pains generation. I'm also thinking this one may last just as long if not longer than this one. Strap in folks were headed for a bumpy ride.

Consoles are essentially PCs now, so might as well go with the cheaper and more powerful one (my own).

Handhelds are still cool, though.

Use a PC for newest games + wait and see mode for next gen consoles + catching up on backlog on current consoles!

Serious question: Who still watches live TV? My parents are the only ones I know who still use cable (others Netflix/Hulu/Amazon/etc), and they have a DVR. As far as I heard, the XB1 isn't a DVR and only shows live TV. Maybe once a year at superbowl is that a thing, otherwise just wait 30+min and watch from DVR+FastForward.

If the XB1 does let you control your Tivo/DVR, I'd argue my parents hit the 1 button on remote to switch to TV/DVR faster than saying Xbox go to TV....Xbox now go to DVR.

Edit: And by backlog I mean NEW games that are coming out all year + next year. All games announced are cross-gen with version only coming out on current gen, or both current/new.

My thoughts exactly. They're basically using off the shelf stuff now, so why not just make the jump to PC gaming? I love having my 3ds and Vita for just playing games right before I go to bed, or when I get some free time.

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

Split the difference between "Xbox One" and "Wait and see mode"... I'm pretty invested in Xbox Live, my friends list and gamerscore, etc., so I'm sure I'll end up sticking with Microsoft despite the poor showing the Xbone has made so far. But I'm certainly in no hurry.

Sports fans. That's why they can charge so mich for ads for sporting events.

I have DirecTV solely for sports--I DVR other things but would just use Netflix and/or Hulu of it wasn't for sports. I need cable or satellite and the sports pack to get the regional channels for my college teams games in HD.

And I want to watch live so the score doesn't get spoiled by friends texting, tweeting, posting on Facebook, calling etc.

I'm going to wait a year or so before I buy to see how things pan out. It seems like hardware issues and barren lineups are a very common issue these days.

The X1 is definitely a no buy... there is nothing appealing about the X1, other than the fact that they finally fixed the d-pad on controller, but that seems pointless since it has no exclusives I want.

The Wii U is a maybe since Nintendo basically lost the casual market and means they now have to make good games, rather than shit like Wii Fit and overly nostalgic sequels.

The PS4 is a maybe as well depending on the price and games. The hardware sounds great but without BC, I'm going to wait to see how the games turn out. None of the games revealed thus far interest me all that much.

I plan on building a new PC by the end of the year though.

I'm very interested in the Playstation 4, whether I get one at launch or not will depend on which third-party publishers implement DRM in their single-player games.

I will never buy an Xbox One. Requiring online and requiring Kinect are both deal breakers for me individually, both is even worse.

I will buy a Wii U when it has more games of interest and is around $150. There were less than 15 games of interest on Wii and I doubt Wii U will have any more.

I will continue to play plenty of games on PC, but it will probably switch to my secondary system after PS4 is released (depending on the DRM on PS4). As a side note, I will probably buy an Xbox One controller for my PC at some point (assuming it's compatible).

I don't like the pathetically low resolution, the overpriced games, and the saving on the cartridge of the 3DS so I'm not interested in that. I'll get a Vita when it's around $120 with a 16GB memory card.

I voted a combination of Xbox One and Wait and See. I can be convinced to switch or wait further down the line all together, but I enjoy my gamerscore, Xbox games, etc. For me, software sells it.

Lets say MS announces new Crackdown, Viva Pinata, Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie games. Or new Mechwarrior, Brute Force, Sudeki, or Fable games. Maybe Shadow Complex 2 or Halo Wars 2. Or any variation of these games. I would most certainly be much more interested in the XB1.

I don't personally have much hope for some of these, since I see MS pushing the new Kinect 2.0 with some of those 15 exclusive games, but there might be some good stuff we don't know yet. Software sells the hardware, not the other way around IMO.

All these people voting for PS4 before their used game restrictions are announced. You can bet it is coming.. We will need a new poll after E3.


Yeah, lets wait until we know all about the Xbox One AND the PS4 and how they both plan those things. See how the tide changes.

Now playing: Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (XB1), Dark Souls (PC), Starcraft 2 (PC), Infamous: Second Son (PS4), Dead Rising 3 (XB1), Rouge Legacy (PSV).

Yup. Well, won't necessarily be cheaper for me, since my desktop compy's ooooold and will almost certainly be replaced before the year's out.

Love my 3DS XL so far, despite some initial problems. The 3DS is easily going to be my main JRPG platform in the "next gen", just like the DS was for this one (and kinda still will be to some extent, what with my backlog...).

Even the Vita looks more appealing to me than the PS4 and XBONE at this point in time, but I have so much to play right now that getting one's not a priority.

but eventually those cod players will have to move on to the next gen xbox one, after activision stop producing the next call of duty title on current gen xbox 360. The question is when.

Having never owned a Nintendo DS, I've been thinking of getting a 3DS for SMT IV.

The internet requirement is currently a problem for me. I'm leaning heavily towards PS4, but it will be wait and see.

I have a huge backlog of :ps2:, :psp:, and :ps3: games still to play, so I am in no rush to plunk down several hundred dollars.

if you plan to eventually move on to the next gen console, whether it is now, or later down the road. This issue will not go away, you are going to have to deal with it eventually. I personally have no problem with buying games new, but i will just wait till the game drops to below $20 when it comes to the next gen games, before buying it. With my backlog, i do not see a problem. I will probably play my ps3 for another 2-4 years, or as long as it is still operational, before making the jump to next gen.

I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. On one hand, I could give a big F U, to both new consoles (assuming Sony follows suit), and put that $1,000 into upgrading my PC.

The problem with this strategy is two fold:

1. Think of all the exclusive Xbox and Playstation games that won't be coming to PC.

2. I'm not sure that this super low PC game prices situation that is currently in effect is going to stay in effect with the arrival of Next-Gen. If games drop in price as fast on PC as they always have, why would anybody buy the Next-Gen machines ? Why not just buy a PC to get the price drops. It makes me think that the big publishers are going to behave differently with their big consoles games when they come over to the PC.


The other strategy, is to buy both a PS4 and XB1 and simply buy less games than normal, and be extremely choosy with the games I pick. Basically, I would only have a couple of games in my library at any one time. Instead of having a library of like 10 to 15 games.

There is one major upside to this... It will force me to focus in on just a couple of games, and this will cause me to eventually finish said games, and I won't have as big a backlog to deal with.

the only issue with moving to pc, is you will have to constantly update hardware inside your pc like graphics card, which is not cheap at all, and such in order to keep up the pace with the higher demand of graphics from newer games. It require updating on yearly/ more frequently. As oppose to the next gen console, even with their inferior graphics compare to pc, it will take atleast 5-6 years, atleast before another new gen console is released.

Leaning heavily toward PS4 but I'll wait until after E3 to make a decision. Won't buy an Xbox at all most likely but may get more into PC gaming if the PS4 is as bad as the X1 with the restrictions and such.
