I really don't need anymore games, but if Nintendo put out a Pokemon MMORPG or 2-3 Full Pokemon RPG's on the Wii U then I would seriously consider one. But hopefully by the time this happens there will be a better model of the Wii U out.

My TV stand is cluttered and I only have 2 HDMI ports which are both full so for me to get something else I would have to let something else go.

With the crap that is going on in the industry now I really can't see myself dropping $500 for a console that will eventually be replaced by a smaller and better version when I probably already own enough games to keep me busy for the rest of my life.

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.

I'll just buy one or the other of the PS4/XB1 and definitely do that with my game buying. Ideally even more extreme and just have one game a at time--maybe two if there's one game I'm playing with friends online and one single player game at a time.

I did that for a couple of years this generation before grabbing a PS3 and Wii (for the 2nd time)--only had a 360, never had more than 2 or 3 games. I enjoyed gaming more then as I took more time with games, finished games, didn't feel pressured to just get done with a game to move on to another and work on the backlog etc.

I'll likely opt for the Xbox One at launch if I can get my hands on the $300 plus subscription model.

Then have a wait and see approach to the PS4. Likely would opt for it after a price drop and after the exclusive games start to add up.

will go Wii U + PC + PS4

Already have Wii U
PC, will build a new one. currently running Radeon 5850 and it is seeing its age. Will refresh whenever I need to.
PS4 because I still need my JRPG fix (while most are on handheld, FF versus and what not will still pull me back in line.)
X1. sort of interested in the kinect and other media function but I have no cable and use Roku. Will see when it is actually released.

basically wii u and pc as main gaming platform, ps4+x1 for exclusives/other media functions.

I've built up enough of a backlog to last me a while. I'll probably wait until the PS4 gets its first price drop.

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.

That's actually not true anymore, it was 5 years ago or so. But take my PC for example, I run a AMD Athlon 2 X4 quad 2.8. It's old, like 4 years old or so but it's still blazing fast. I do have 16 GB of ram. Also look at this, that processor and Asus motherboard after rebate was $90.00, 16GB of ram was $40.00. Then my Video card was a Radeon 4870, which was old but still played games like Max Payne 3 just fine. I skipped the 5870 and 6870 series and just upgraded like a month ago to a 7870 for $200.00 plus I got Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider for free. If you build your own you can recycle alot of components like the DVD drive, power supply, case, hard drive, etc. So very little goes to waste. Plus most components are super cheap if you look for sales like on Newegg or at Fry's.

Don't get wrong, I'm not a PC fanboy or anything. I'm of fan of deals. I really don't like overspending on video games. Like many others have said this generation of consoles are pretty much PC's anyways. So when you think about it, doesn't it just make sense to do a PC build? Especially since most of the PC problems have been worked out. For example the 360 controller works with most modern games, PC gaming controllers was a BIG problem for a LONG time. But now that's finally resolved. You can do either the wired or wireless. Then the TV thing, Most modern video cards have dual outs, mine has 1 hdmi and 2 dvi. So DVI to the monitor, HDMI to the TV. Problem solved. Windows 7 is great and can take care of many driver issues with the exception of Video card drivers. But downloading and installing Catalyst isn't that big of a deal. Then the Steam "Big Picture" mode has a great layout and can be controlled with the controller sitting on the couch. It'll even tell you if the game you select is playable with the controller. So that problem is also solved.

As far as crazy cheap prices for games on PC, I've thought about this a lot and came to the conclusion that it makes sense when you think about it. When a company releases a game and does the pre-orders and everyone that was willing to buy the game at $60.00 bought it already. Since the game is made already and games on Steam and Origin are just digital anyways. Why not sell the game for cheap and bring in more cash? It's doesn't really "cost" anything anyways, since there is no physical media and PC has low licensing fees. Just look at the Alan Wake Humble weekly Bundle. Pay what you want and pay $1.00 or more and get steam codes for Alan Wake CE and American Nightmare. That's an old game but it's a great game and has brought in $500,000.00 in less than a week already! That's crazy!

So for this next gen, there is no next gen for me. I think I'll get a cheap 3TB hard drive for my PC and call it a generation. Well that is until Nintendo releases a new Zelda for Wii U because I don't think I'll be able to pass that up. Stupid Link always takes my money, but Zelda games are so great!

If we are talking about eventualities-Eventually I'll probably own everything, it's just my gamer nature to want to. I do currently have a Wii U and a 3DS and enjoy them plenty atm. As far as immediate plans? Neither Xbox One or PS4 are really a must buy for me as of now because neither has shown really compelling games IMHO. Granted E3 is coming up, but with how launches tend to go, I doubt I'll be getting a new console this year. Maybe upgrade to an XL...

I was all ready to get another Xbox, but after hearing about the always-online, 24hr check-in, 2nd hand game debacle, kinect, tv/movie thing. Forget it. All I want is a simple gaming console that does one thing well and doesn't require internet connection.

I'm going back to playstation.
And I'd just like to add, even if MS comes out and changes their "online" policy, I still ain't buying their product because of this.

PS4, Wii U (which I already have), and I might upgrade to a laptop that can handle a few games so maybe PC.

Setting aside the "will the PS4 have DRM too?" argument for now, there is just absolutely nothing about the Xbox One that appeals to me. The #1 thing I buy a system for is the games, and I just don't care about ANY of the Xbox's exclusives. Sony got the bulk of the exclusive "quircky" Japanese games this gen along with the JRPGs and I don't see that changing, especially since MS has given up on making any progress selling to Japan. And as far as first-parties go, I'll take Naughty Dog alone over anything MS has - not to mention all of their other first-party devs (really looking forward to inFamous: Second Son).

I have a Wii-U now, I'll get a PS4 and that's it (and yeah, I still game on my PC too but I doubt I'll be upgrading it again for a while).

Wait and see, but leaning forwards PS4.. Not impressed with new xbox which is disappointing after being pretty much solely xbox since 2003

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

'Wait and See mode'

While I am leaning more towards PC & Xbone, there is still half a year to go and things can change in during that time for better, or worse
(how much more at this point? :lol: )

I have a Wii U, Ouya and 3DS.

If Microsoft doesn't shift course, I won't be buying an Xbox One.
I'll be picking up a PS4, so long as Sony doesn't do something really stupid. (See Xbox One)

I guess I'm still in wait and see mode, but I'm pretty sure I'll end up with a Wii U, Ouya, 3DS, Vita and PS4.

Wait and see, I'm one of the people who like the Xbox exclusives more so even though there's some stuff I don't like that I read it mainly comes down to the games for me. Not to mention with that big Microsoft Store points thing happening if they convert over to money on Xbox One I could score some launch games digitally cheap so that helps out in that regard. I have a Wii U and both the current portables already as well though so no matter what happens even if I don't get either of the other next gen consoles I feel that I'm good already at least.

I really disliked the Xbox reveal. And everything is apparently centered on the already-hated Kinect. Ugh.

Anyway, wait and see mode. Right now leaning towards PS4, but it will be a year or two before I get a next-gen console, so I have time to play current gen games. Although it really helps for me to just watch out for prices, what friends play, reviews, games, etc.

I'll be all-hands-on-board eventually. I love collecting games and gaming systems, so its just a matter of time before I acquire all of the next-gen systems. The question is, which ones will get the most financial support from me by buying them earlier? The earlier I get a system, the more likely I will be to purchase more games for it at original retail price, as opposed to used. (which is better for the platform holder and developers) The systems I acquire earlier are usually more financially supported.

Although now that I think of it, that didn't really happen in this generation. I bought my PS3 last, but ended up purchasing more games for it than any other system. Kind of odd, that. I guess the order in which I buy systems doesn't have all THAT much bearing on how well I support them.

I've already acquired a Wii-U, as well as a 3DS and Vita. I'm not sure how early I will get a PS4 or XBox One. I'm going to see how those shake out before I decide to get in line for either one. I'm leaning toward the PS4 at the moment. The earlier 360 line-up was quite a bit more experimental, but their library just got more and more bland over time. I have no faith in Microsoft's game development at this point.

PC, WiiU, and Portables for me. I'm in wait-and-see mode for the PS4. I'll probably get one eventually, but that'll depend on price, exclusives, backwards compatibility, used games, and any always-online annoyances.

The Xbox One reveal already put me off enough that I doubt I'll ever get one unless they somehow remove some of the bullshit or have the most amazing library of exclusives since the SNES.

Already got portables. XBone is a definite no due to online requirement and expected library. PS4 is up in the air. As long as they don't include any dealbreakers(online requirement, used game blocks), I'm in. Otherwise, it'll be some combination of PC, sitting out console gaming, and/or the option that dare not speak it's name(after someone cracks it).

Good idea for a poll, dmaul!

I'll be skipping this gen, at least for now. There are plenty of games I have not played this generation that I would love to immerse myself in, once I get the chance. Doesn't it seem like the new consoles are losing their edge when it comes to being about gaming? Improved controller latency on the PS4 is great, but I don't need the ability to watch live tv, talk to friends while playing, or so on and so forth. The options now are great. Also, a good point was raised that for the viewers who like having these options all in one place, they are still missing out on DVR or pausing and fast-forwarding through recorded tv shows.

This generation's heavy focus on social media has me wanting to create a platform myself. I don't like having all these options, I just want great games. Of course these options are going to hike up the costs of the X1 and PS4. Without a doubt both are coming out with slim designs in a matter of years, perhaps teams are already working on such models (both consoles look mammoth). I am disappointed to see video games going in this direction.

Heavily leaning toward PS4 in a couple of years due to Xbox One's Bruce Lee One Inch Punch tier assortment of fail features. The ultra creepy mandatory Kinetic bullshit being the worst of them all. So until Microsoft decides to take their head out of their ass I'm keeping a close eye on Sony for now.

This pretty much sums up my own feelings about the 360; couldn't have said it better myself.

As soon as Haswell is released, I've got $500 (that I was going to put towards the next Xbox) to buy a new CPU, mobo, and possibly some RAM. For the price, the gtx 700 aren't blowing me away, so I'll hang onto to my 670 FTW til the 800 or maybe even 900 are released. After all the console maker shenanigans of this gen, I don't think I'll give either Sony or Msoft my money until a significant price drop and they evolve into whatever final state of UI/features/firmware permanence.

I voted for three of the choices:

Vote #1 - Focus on backlog.

I have PS2,GameCube,PS3, and the Xbox library to work through (I've only had the 360 for two years so that would take the longest).

Vote #2 - Wii U

I highly doubt PS4 and X1 are going to be $300 but besides the price,I want to get this because the Wii U plays Wii games - a system I never owned. Add that with the Virtual Console and this should keep me busy for years. However, I will still ...

Vote #3 - Wait and see

Anything can happen at E3. Since PS4 and XB1 aren't BC and will probably cost half a grand with a game or two, I'm thinking of waiting for the PS5 and/or Xbox Two (Xbox OneTwo? Xbox One Part Two?) since chances are the library will be big enough to get a game I'm interested in right away at a lower price. On the other hand, there may be Vita or 3Ds news that convinces me to buy one or the other.

Half a grand for the console AND two gams!?! That console is gonna be way over that without any games. And games are probably gonna cost more. Up to $100. :(
