I definitely am.

#3 Posted by dungbootle (2501 posts) -

Yeah brother!

#4 Posted by MetalBaofu (1487 posts) -

Sure. I just hope I'm able to buy one whenever they launch.

#5 Posted by Turtlebird95 (3185 posts) -

Yup my body is Reggie... Haha Shitty memes are shitty.
But yeah I can't wait for the next Xbox. PS4/Orbis I can wait on considering I just got a PS3 in 2011.

#6 Posted by Pr1mus (4107 posts) -

My PC is(mostly) ready.

#7 Posted by believer258 (13042 posts) -

Yes. Hopefully this PC I just put a 7870 into is also ready for that jump.

#8 Posted by Bigandtasty (3140 posts) -

Going with PC for at least the next few years.

#9 Posted by hughesman (314 posts) -

I am absolutely ready. Even if i don't buy one out of the gate, it will just be really interesting to see what's new.

#10 Posted by mosespippy (4746 posts) -

If it means companies try out new IPs or revive old franchises. I don't see how the next sequel to the game that was itself a disappointing sequel will warrant a new system. The glut of new franchises from the start of the current generation were the high point for me and it's been downhill since Uncharted 2. I want something different. I want something new.

#11 Edited by Wrighteous86 (3880 posts) -

Nope, I refuse to spend more than $300 on a console, and I know these new ones will be more than that, so I'll be waiting for price drops anyway. Besides, aside from franchise fatigue, I'm still happy with the games that are coming out now, don't mind the graphics, and don't look forward to the Kinect-type stuff that's going to be forced on us next gen. Do kind of dig the touch screen in the Wii U though.

Not to mention my big backlog. I'm mature enough to wait til they are more cost-effective and I don't have older games I still want to play.

#12 Posted by Saethir (356 posts) -

I look forward to the engines designed to take advantage of next gen consoles, but mostly for PC. If a new graphics card costs less than the consoles, I will probably be sticking with PC.

I'm really curious what the new consoles will be capable of.

#13 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3376 posts) -

Yep, but I'm not excited about spending a bunch of money.

#14 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6805 posts) -

Kind of, but since I already have a really good gaming PC and only really use my PS3 to play stuff when friends are over or to play exclusives, I'm not sure that I want to pay a bunch for a new console. I'm definitely interested to see the capabilities of the new consoles, though.

#15 Posted by billyhoush (1245 posts) -

Not right now. Too many current gen games I'm looking forward to but by Christmas 2013 YEAH BABY!

#16 Posted by Captain_Felafel (1695 posts) -

It's a bit of both the first and second choice. I'm really satisfied with what I've got now, especially my PC. I've been living in the "next-gen" for what feels like years now with PC games being what they are. But on the other hand, I can't wait to see what Microsoft and Sony have up their sleeve. Not just in terms of in increase in fidelity, but also in what these systems to will do differently from their predecessors. No one expected Xbox Live Arcade to be a big part of that system when it first launched, but look where it is today. Things like that, things that come out of left field that redefine what we expect from games.

#17 Posted by ShiftyMagician (2168 posts) -

I'm not exactly looking forward to buying consoles, but I've been ready for a long time now for the next technological jump (which will happen despite what typical pessimists may think) that will be sure to follow.

#18 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2393 posts) -

I'm always ready for new consoles, I want to see what next generation games will look like on them.

#19 Posted by liquiddragon (558 posts) -

I'm hoping Nintendo will get competitive by the time other consoles roll out. I can wait couple more years.

#20 Posted by Coafi (1519 posts) -

No, not with the backlog I currently have. I also, think I'll jump on the PC bandwagon instead of new consoles. Perhaps a steam box for myself, or does the steam box count as a new console?

#21 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (6370 posts) -

I played games pretty regularly and loved them all my life,but I really got into them around 2008,around the time Giant Bomb launched.So this will be the first console transition I've followed really closely.I'll definitely buy one of them on launch day reguardless of the price just to experience the spectacle.

#22 Posted by TheUnsavedHero (1275 posts) -

I'm pretty much ready. I still have a large pile of unplayed games I need to get to. I can hold off for a while.

#23 Edited by Colourful_Hippie (5024 posts) -

Even though I'm inclined to say C I'm going to go with A cuz those old fucking machines will finally stop holding games back for the rest of us.

#24 Posted by BillyTheKid (535 posts) -

I am very satisfied with what I have while also being entirely ready for a new console generation. I could wait a bit though honestly.

#25 Posted by iam3green (14368 posts) -

kind of, i wait for the price to drop to get the new games.

i'm excited to hear about new stuff that's going to come out.

#26 Edited by BigBoss1911 (2691 posts) -

Depending on the launch lineup, Im probably buying the new xbox day 1.

#27 Posted by rentfn (1381 posts) -

I'm excited to see where they go with them. I have money saved. I've enjoyed both the 360 and the PS3. I am going to see which one impresses me at E3 and buy only one of them at launch. I'm sure I'll pick up the other in a year or so though. I'm excited for waiting in line with people during launch.

#29 Posted by mellotronrules (1533 posts) -

i'm certainly interested to see what microsoft and sony offer for sale in terms of hardware, software, and services. but i also have a good pc rig, so unless they have system-sellers and compelling features, it probably isn't a 2013 purchase for me.

#30 Edited by Zeik (3487 posts) -

No. I won't be buying for at least a year or two after launch anyway. Not to mention I'm kind of concerned about what the game landscape is going to look like when they're even more expensive to develop for. So many developers are already struggling to develop for consoles as it is.

Unless of course this means the current gen consoles will become cheaper and thus more accessible for smaller developers. In that case bring on the next gen. Some of the PS2's best games didn't come until after the PS3 launched.

#31 Posted by Tan (427 posts) -

I've been ready for 2 years.

#32 Posted by Miketakon (533 posts) -

Yep tired of playing broken ass games.

#33 Posted by TooWalrus (13344 posts) -

I'm ready for... the advancement that new consoles bring. I'm probably not going to buy one right away, but I'm definitely interested.

#34 Posted by DarthOrange (4131 posts) -

Hell yea. I am saving up right now to pick up the PS4 at launch.

#35 Posted by randiolo (1151 posts) -

my ps3 just died, and im building a new pc, so yea, bring that shit on.

#36 Posted by RioStarwind (711 posts) -

I've been ready for quite a while. Hope we see a lot of rumors about them the closer we get to E3 since it's always a interesting read. Even if they turn out to be false.

#37 Posted by joshthebear (2704 posts) -

I'm excited about what they come up with, but will wait and see before purchasing.

#38 Posted by ez123 (2013 posts) -

I'm ready for them to be released. Then I'll be ready to wait a year, see what games they get, and buy one of them.

#39 Posted by ajamafalous (12542 posts) -

I've been ready for like four fucking years. Not because I'm going to buy them, but because I want them to stop holding back games that are ported to my PC.

#40 Posted by Zebracal (75 posts) -

Yes I'm always ready, but my wallet is not.

And besides the Piston to be sold at $1000, I think this wants me to rethink my decision.

#41 Posted by Vexxan (4627 posts) -

I bought a monster PC not long ago but I'm still interested in seeing what's next for the console market. I'm sure there will be some console exclusive games I will want to play.

#42 Posted by MordeaniisChaos (5904 posts) -

Ready as all hell, except that I'll probably be enlisting a few/couple months before their release and as a result won't touch them for at least 5 or 6 months after release. But I'm really looking forward to PC games all looking as good as PC only games these days. Mmmmm.

#43 Posted by Tarsier (1491 posts) -

ive been ready for 3 years. . . and i want half life 3. i want to see the next generation NOW

#44 Posted by Aterons (207 posts) -

A closed system that has no real sales, no piracy and is maybe 200$ cheaper than the PC equivalent on day 1 because Sonny/MS will rip of all the dev for the next 10 years using it to make back profits... thanks but no thanks.

I prefer that the few monies i have to spend on games go to the developers, i prefer having sales, i don't encourage software that hold back the industry and i can spend 10 minutes reading a few articles so that i know how to build a PC and not have to spend bollocks on a pre-made that is able to run games. I really hate people that are hyped and going to buy the next gen, you guys are what is holding this industry backs. Stop encouraging close platforms and devs being charged to be able to develop for a system and sell on it, it's outdated, immoral and damaging to the industry :/

#45 Edited by Seppli (11233 posts) -

I am. For a while now. Really curious about the console's specs in regards to system memory & storage - and how that will influence future games. Almost all games these days, even on PC, have a memory footprint of a maximum of 1,5 GB RAM & 1 GB of V-RAM - the upcoming consoles are roumored to have 8 GB of RAM total, and that in a dedicated gaming machine, so all of that is pretty much dedicated and catered to running a game.

I'm sure, minds will be blown, despite much talk to the contrary. Tech is not going to level out. That's shortsighted nonsense. There will be amazing leaps and bounds, and the gaming industry is about to make a significant one shortly.

#46 Posted by Soap (3750 posts) -

I've been ready since 2010 :(

#47 Posted by Coombs (3507 posts) -

Went with "Hell Yeah I Am!!!"

Though in all honesty it's more of a "Sure I'll switch when the time comes" sorta thing

#48 Posted by Ares42 (3089 posts) -

Every time I go back to play some game on my consoles my first thought is always "oh ye, that's right......" I find it baffling that people don't think there's a need for new consoles when you realize how much the developers are holding back for their games to run decently on these old consoles.

#49 Posted by Bourbon_Warrior (4569 posts) -

I was ready in 2011

#50 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (1542 posts) -

hells yea I am, but there is still a bunch of games I really need to finish *Darksider 2 I'm looking at you*
