The One

#5 Posted by Barrock (3553 posts) -

I have both day one consoles pre-ordered on Amazon. The PS4 is paid off except for the last $150. Put down $150 for the One, so I'm slowly paying that off before release.

#6 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2295 posts) -

PS4 as I just don't need both since multiplatform games take up most of the launch window.

#7 Posted by Vanick (332 posts) -

I have both pre-ordered. I'm getting the PS4 for sure but I'm going back and forth on keeping my XBO pre-order.

#8 Posted by The_Laughing_Man (13629 posts) -

Xboxone. If my book return money is enough then both.

#9 Posted by Hailinel (25205 posts) -

I have a PS4 on order through Amazon.

#10 Posted by ConfusedOwl (965 posts) -

I'm getting the Playstation 4 on release. It's getting pretty close now so the wait is getting harder.

#11 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (3778 posts) -

XONE Zone.

#12 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2590 posts) -

PS4 for certain, maybe an xbone if I have the spare cash (but that wouldn't be day one, I guess).

PS4 + PC just seems like the logical combo this coming gen.

PS4, just will have to wait for Fed Ex to bring it to me. I've thought about it and it isn't that bad to wait, I can watch the streams that sites will do and see what games I should download first.

PS4, going to be going to the midnight release at my local EB. I'm going to pass on the Xbox One for now, maybe I'll change my mind in the future and pick it up when it has some more titles I'm interested in.

#16 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19388 posts) -

PS4. I will most likely get an Xbox One eventually, but there is literally no announced game for it yet that would sell me on the system while the PS4 has 4-6.

#17 Posted by OGinOR (325 posts) -

@fluxwavez: Curious - which ones? (As I feel this way in reverse...MSFT sold me on their games..not so much Sony)

#18 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19388 posts) -

@oginor: Off the top of my head:

  1. Guilty Gear Xrd
  2. inFamous: Second Son
  3. Deep Down
  4. The Order 1886

There's probably more that I can't think of right now, combined with the fact that the PS4's exclusives look more interesting to me in general and that I know from experience with the PS3 and 360 that Sony's exclusives suit my tastes more. I'm sure I'll have to get an Xbox One at some point because of some exclusive, but there isn't one yet.

#19 Posted by FinalDasa (2046 posts) -

Of the two pre-orders on Amazon only the Xbox One was a day one edition until just yesterday. Now I'll be getting the PS4 on day one and then the Xbox One nearer to TitanFall.

@fluxwavez: It's funny, it's exactly the opposite for me. Sony barely has anything I want to play as of yet, while Microsoft has at least a few games I need to play. I also thought during the 360 and PS3 era, the 360 had a ton more exclusives that suited my taste than the PS3 did. The thing is, all the exclusives Microsoft had at that time were almost all timed exclusive as it turns out. Whether months or years, all of those that I liked are now available elsewhere as well. It doesn't truly matter I suppose, since I play in the moment and not afterwards. But it is something to think about if they use the same strategy this generation. Anyway, the Xbox One titles I want to play are:

  1. Dead Rising 3
  2. Project Spark
  3. Quantum Break
  4. Sunset Overdrive
  5. Fable Legends
  6. Halo
  7. Crackdown 3? (if it actually is a thing, they have to mess up pretty hard for me not to want to play it)

PS4 only has Second Son and perhaps, depending on where it goes, The Order 1886. That's pretty much it. I generally don't care much for PS exclusives like God of War, Killzone, Gran Turismo and Uncharted. They do have some stuff I like though, like The Last of Us and inFamous.

That said, I do have both pre-ordered. I end up with all consoles eventually anyway and since money isn't that much of an issue for me, I rather play games when they are new as opposed to backlogging at the end of a generation. At least half of the games you want to play then turn out pretty 'meh' because they were released early into the generation and if you didn't see it while it was new, you won't appreciate it that much. At least, that's what I had with a few games.

But honestly, the multiplatform games are the ones I'm at least as much excited about.

Neither. i'm gonna wait for all you suckers to show me what's up with the systems. (Bwahahahaha)

Neither. I have learned the hard way that buying a console at launch is usually a bad idea. My launch Genesis had sound issues within the year, my PS1 overheated constantly (I had to keep it upside down), my PS2 stopped reading disks after a few months, my dreamcast had a short lifespan, my Wii had a shitty library of games (there were some decent ones, but not many in comparison to my other systems), my DS had a redesign that made the OG DS look awful... because it was awful, my 360 stopped opening its disk drive after two years (Tho I haven't had a red ring, others have had issues). Those are just my launch console issues, look at the people who bought a 3DS, they lost out on $100.

Edit: Plus launch years are boring. All you want to do is play new games on your system, and all you get are crap like Chromehounds or Pilotwings (Mario was awesome, but it wasn't play only that game for 8 months awesome).

#25 Posted by McLargepants (393 posts) -

I'm ready for my day one PS4 to show up, I'll definitely play Watch Dogs on it and Res0gun and #Driveclub cause I like free things and either Knack or Killzone depending on reviews. But right now I'm even more excited for something else: the Retron 5 releases October 31st and I've got one of those preordered as well!

^^^ I actually took the day off from work for the package. It's more to do with my paranoia that it'll get stolen (I've had packages stolen from my front door before) than actually needing to get the damn thing, although that's a plus. I'm just too ready for a new console, even if my 360 still has some life in it.

#27 Posted by Fram (753 posts) -

CrossBone Juan for me. I have mad nostalgia for Killer Instinct, and the new one looks great. Also Crimson Dragon is a day one purchase for me. Further along, Quantum Break, Titanfall, D4, others.

#28 Posted by Armoes (68 posts) -

I Pre-ordered a PS4 and then much later pulled the trigger on the XB1. I'm excited about both systems and want to compare them for myself.

In the past I've waited for price drops (or skipped a generation), but don't want to wait for a price drop this time. Too long.

#29 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5983 posts) -

It may be hard to believe, but I'm still not entirely sure. I have both preordered and have been leaning toward the Ps4, but I still need to actually cancel one of them. Either way I'm pretty excited, since this will be the first time I've bought a console at launch. I've completely boarded the Hype Train. CHOO CHOO!!!

#30 Posted by FriendlyPhoenix (467 posts) -

I went with the PS4. I think Microsoft has a more interesting launch lineup, but theirs is $100 more expensive and won't have inFamous in February, which was the primary factor of my decision.

#31 Posted by RioStarwind (578 posts) -

Decided to go with the PS4 since getting the Xbox One for it's exclusive titles isn't really worth it on launch day.

#32 Posted by Aviar (452 posts) -

I'm giving Sony the nod on day one for the PS4. Have mine ordered through Amazon. I'll eventually get an xbox one, but it just won't be on launch day.

#33 Posted by Rafaelfc (1455 posts) -

I'm getting the Ps4 out of the gate, and will probably get the Xbone when it has a few interesting games in it's library.

#34 Posted by LordAndrew (14430 posts) -

Neither at launch, but probably PS4 before X1.
