Yes. My wallet, however, is not.

Yea, like 2 years ago...

#53 Posted by Village_Guy (2796 posts) -

Hell yeah I'm ready for them to come out so I can wait a while before I buy one (unless I get sucked into a game in the launch line-up that is) :)

#54 Posted by Rafaelfc (1818 posts) -

I was born ready!

#55 Posted by Imsorrymsjackson (866 posts) -

Yep, I will buy them regardless of how good they and their launch games are. I haven't missed buying a console on launch for many years.

#56 Posted by cutyoface (575 posts) -

My body is ready.

#57 Posted by Anund (1036 posts) -

I'm in the PC camp. For me it's just more practical to game on my PC, the TV is usually occupied by my wife.

How can anyone be satisfied with the current gen? It's soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo old.

#60 Posted by hermes (1784 posts) -

I think the world is ready; although I will wait a while to buy one.

My backlog is too long, and the time it takes for a generation to pick up steam will give me ample time to catch up.

I have a quality PC but I just prefer to play a lot of stuff on consoles, and the quality difference is reallly starting to bug me. That and I'm pumped to see the new non-game stuff on the consoles, I've used my ps3 more as a set top box than anything else, curious to see what other uses I can get out of next gen.

I am. My wallet isn't

#63 Posted by PhantomGardener (500 posts) -

Fuck yes!!

#64 Posted by endoworks (332 posts) -

If a new console came out today I dont think I would get one. After reading about them for 6-7 months tho I might have change of mind, but I'm mostly set on PC at this point.

#65 Posted by posh (611 posts) -

option 4: who cares? wii u is where it's at


#66 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (4012 posts) -

Word. Really excited for the news on them, kinda like the fact that I don't have a dog in this race, I could go either way. Well...aside from Nintendo.

#67 Posted by sarahsdad (1290 posts) -

I'm good for now. Looking forward to a lot of budget/backlog gaming when those new systems come out.

#68 Posted by BasketSnake (1473 posts) -

PC4LIFE. And Snes.

#69 Posted by Dynablade (182 posts) -

Not at the moment. Maybe within the next year I might be ready for another new console, but it's not a priority right at the moment. I'm currently happy with the games I have to playthrough on my PS3, Wii, 3DS, and PC.

#70 Posted by MetalMoog (969 posts) -

I'm most excited for the STEAM BOX!

<Glass Shatters & The Rock's theme song kicks in at FULL volume>

FINALLY! The PC Gaming Experience HAS come BACK to my LIVING ROOM!

#71 Edited by ExplodeMode (851 posts) -

I'm worried that they are going to end up having gimmicky features that drive up costs like the Wii U or Vita or 3DS. If the processing power isn't a massive leap, I don't see myself caring that much. And more added-on things; like touch screens or 3d or nfc or headsets or wall-projecting virtual reality orwhatever, I think would really sap my interest.

I have this feeling that the current generation is going to have a lot of life in it for a few more years, even after the next stuff shows up. Unless Sony or MS go for it hard and really push things foreward, I think their biggest competition might be themselves.

#72 Posted by Ravenlight (8057 posts) -

A and C. New consoles will mean my PC games get better, too.

#73 Posted by upwarDBound (658 posts) -

I'm ready to see what they have to offer that's better than what's available now. The PC market has become so encompassing now though that new console launches are not as exciting to me as they once were. Better graphics and more realistic physics alone isn't enough anymore. Not when PCs almost get all the games that consoles get nowadays and can do them way better.

I'm more immediately interested in the Oculus Rift which actually seems like a dramatically new way to experience games.

#74 Posted by Tesla (2020 posts) -

Of course, I'm a gamer.

I might not buy any of them right away, but I'm still excited and ready for that new new. Console advancements are a big part of what drive the whole industry forward, and this cycle has gone on long enough.

#75 Posted by Hippie_Genocide (959 posts) -

Nope. I just built a new rig and still have a massive backlog of shit from this gen. However, I'm not opposed to them coming out as it may spur innovation of new IP''s, games, etc., its just I won't be buying it anytime soon.

#76 Posted by nintendork666 (209 posts) -

I'll probably end up with a PS4, and maybe a Wii U (when the price is right).

But honestly, between my current-gen setup + retro console libraries. My backlog is large enough to never need another new console again.

#77 Posted by jacksmedulla (297 posts) -

I game nearly solely on my PC now, but I'm looking forward to the next gen console exclusives. Ni No Kuni is going to be the first game I've played on a console in nearly a year, so I look forward to more games like it that appear only on consoles.

#78 Posted by seamus85 (138 posts) -

No i game solely on my PC and my wife may kill me if i buy anymore console's at $500+

#79 Posted by Sayishere (1852 posts) -

Eh not as much was i was before, just because I built a brand new pc recently. Obviously it's the software that will tempt me at first. If the launch lineup is formidable then I'll definately take the plunge. Same thing with the wii u, which I have hold of now.

#80 Posted by Roger778 (960 posts) -

I chose B. I would rather get a X-Box 360 slim, instead of a X-Box 720, or whatever it's going to be called. I've owned a white X-Box for three years, and it's still going strong.

#81 Posted by RenegadeSaint (1630 posts) -

I would say no, but since I'm starting a year of research in July, the answer is YES. I will finally have some time for gaming and it will be nice to try something new and exciting.

#82 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6651 posts) -

I'm buying a computer.

#83 Posted by TheSilentTruth (1252 posts) -

I still have a backlog with the current systems, so I'm not ready to move on yet.

#84 Posted by MedalOfMode (314 posts) -

XBOX with XBOX TABLET! I'm ready!

#85 Posted by Ninja_Welshman (529 posts) -

Good god yes!!

#86 Posted by Marcsman (3381 posts) -

Not overly thrilled with it, but I will be a Day 1 purchaser of the PS4

#87 Posted by HeyImPhoenix (175 posts) -

No not yet! I have too many games i want to play :)

#88 Posted by crusader8463 (14755 posts) -

Unless I fall into some money that I can throw away I won't be buying them any time soon. They always take a year or two before they get a catalog of games worth playing on them, and by that time a price cut is usually around the corner as well. So I will be waiting for all that to happen. Plus I still got a huge backlog of current gen games so unless next gen is 100% backwards compatible I won't be buying them for even longer. I don't have the free ports on my TV or the physical space to plug in three more consoles ontop of the ones I have now.

On top of all that I only ever play games on consoles because the people who make them don't release them on PC. So That means it's going to take a while for them to get some good exclusives before I jump in since almost everything these days comes out on everything.

Yes, but like others have said, only because PCs won't be held back as much.

#91 Posted by isomeri (1791 posts) -

I've already saved up enough money to buy one of the consoles. Unless either company goes 599 US dollars crazy.

#92 Posted by Jack268 (3368 posts) -

I've been ready for 3 or 4 years already

#93 Posted by ProfessorK (846 posts) -

I've gone through 2 360s, my PS3 and my Wii have also both recently stopped working through no fault of mine. Honestly I'm ready to go all out PC. I'm tired of each generation of hardware getting progressively worse than the last lifespan wise. My Dreamcast, PS2, XBox1, GC (though not without their own issues), and all other consoles i own before those still work. Shit I want to go back to cartridges I have some genesis games that someone gave me after the casing on the carts were cracked open and they still work.

#94 Posted by Aete (40 posts) -

I've had both a PS3 and a 360 but I end up gaming on my pc 90% of the time. Still pondering getting the new PS when it comes out even if it is just to use it with friends coming over but I'm in no hurry to get it.

#95 Posted by FreakAche (3028 posts) -

I'll probably buy a Wii U, but maybe skip out on the next Xbox and the PS4 and just opt to build a new gaming PC instead.

#96 Posted by sins_of_mosin (1713 posts) -

Nope. I'd love another 3-5 years of Xbox 360 releases to add to my big backlog.

#97 Posted by Korwin (3504 posts) -

While I play on PC i'm looking forward to technology finally catching up. I'm pretty much over the kind of games that are built within the confines of the existing console platforms.

#98 Posted by fallen_rock2 (50 posts) -

I'm ready for new ones. I'm going to try and wait for the second production run though so I don't end up paying $500+ to be a beta tester.

#99 Posted by wumbo3000 (1100 posts) -

Yes, but I don't think I'll be able to afford them.

#100 Posted by Mr402 (155 posts) -

My recently built PC is going to be my next gen machine for the next couple years or so. Microsoft has burned too many bridges with me when it comes to their lack of commitment to exclusive's and focus on casual gaming plus the pay to play online model is unacceptable considering the competition. So the next Xbox will sit on the shelf unless Microsoft really comes with something compelling which I cannot get on my PC as well. I already own a Wii U (Honestly I should have waited but the trade in deal for my 360 was too good to pass up.) Still my kids love it and I never purchase a Nintendo system for anything other then Nintendo made games. Mario and Zelda will always be FTW. Sony is another company that will retain my support mainly because they never lost sight of the fact that exclusives are what defines a consoles identity. Games like Uncharted, Heavy Rain and the upcoming Last of Us show that Sony understands that gamers need new experiences not yearly reskins of the same FPS shooters. So the PS4 will be a future purchase once their exclusives begin to get rolling. Honestly my PC has pretty much shown me that it was and always will be the focal point that all gaming stems from making the next gen not something I'm overly hyped about.
