Pre-ordered a PS4 from Amazon.de, but I can just cancel it whenever since they don't charge until they ship
I pre-ordered a ps4. I haven't gotten a console on launch day since the dreamcast, but this console generation has been so long and I am out of school with a full time job so I thought it'd be fun to preorder one. Not really feeling the Xbox One yet, I just kinda like Sony's philosophy this time around even though I never buy used games. With an amazon order I don't get charged till it ships and I can cancel anytime. At least now I'm guaranteed one on launch day unless I change my mind.
@owlmassive: I completely forgot that i did that on the lead up to the 360 release! Traded my xbox and games. It sucked going for months with only my old N64 to play on.
I couldn't do that now though. I have too many hard fought game saves and to many awesome games to play on my 360 to ever consider getting rid of it.
Xbone Day One thing. I don't really know why, honestly. Mainly because of Remedy, I guess. Sony obviously wants my money more and trust me, they'll get it. Just not at launch.
Edit: Actually, cancelled the Xbox and preordered the launch day W__4TCH_D4G$_ PS4. Feeling good about that.
PS4, I went out of my way to find a site that didnt ask for a deposit though. Just in case they announced a better bundle or something. Only game I want on the Xbone at launch is Dead Rising 3 which despite it's less japanesy tone looked pretty awesome. But it's Capcom, I doubt it'll stay exclusive for long.
I'm probably going to preorder the ps4 in august when I get financial aid from school, because circumstances screwed me out of a job. If one of my interviews pans out I might preorder one with my first check, but I'm still waiting to see if they announce multiple skus. Also I'd like the fuzziness around what the launch titles are to be cleared up a bit. No point in buying it if there's nothing I want to play.
PS4. Xbone I'm not even going to bother with for obvious reasons, in particular the attitude of the company overall with special attention thrown towards Don Mattrick. WiiU I don't consider next gen so yeah, but I'm going to get one of those as soon as Smash Brothers comes out. I don't really know why I'm getting them though, the three games that I'm probably going to be playing this year (AC IV, Watch_Dogs, and Battlefield 4) I'm going to be playing on PC.
I've pre-ordered a PS4 mainly for price, & games. I don't hate the XBO, im gonna get One (lol) down the line (I buy everything), but if you asked me which one I want more right now, it's PS4.
When I mean, I pre-ordered it, I actually paid the whole thing off in full. Gamestop was asking for $100 just to pre-order, so I went to the bank on the way back, & thought hey I have the money now, & im gonna spend $400 in the long run, I just ended up buying the whole thing up front.
No. I have no plans to buy either console. I'm happy with PC gaming.
Same here. High-end gaming PC + Wii U (for exclusives, mostly) and 3DS XL. I'm settled for this gen. I have literally no interest at all in Microsoft's and Sony's new consoles. Maybe, just maybe, I end up getting a PS4... but I sold my 360 with all my games yesterday, and I fear that I will do exactly the same with what is basically a spiced up version of it.
I did pre-order a PS4 (through Amazon, so I don't have to actually spend the money yet), but just so I have the option to own one at launch if I choose to do so. I haven't decided whether or not I will end up going through with it yet and probably won't for several months.
I wouldn't put money down for something as big as a console quite this soon, but did place a free-reserve on a PS4, if just because bandwagons are fun and I haven't been part of a console launch since the Dreamcast. I feel old.
It doesn't help that I don't really know much about any of the games. Is there a list of known PS4 launch games? Everything I see is "TBC"!
Tempted to pre-order, but holding off for now.
Ultimately I'll have many opportunities to buy whichever systems I want in next couple years. Part of me wants one now and would settle for launch, but as I look back at my 360 and PS3, it was okay to not get them day 1.
I will likely get in earlier this time (I won't wait for a PS4 price drop), but I'm also not standing in a line. When I can get one easy, I'll pick one up.
As for the XBO, will it work with my cable box and it's DVR? I'll have to see it in action.
Nah. I was going to get the ps4 as futureshop had a deal where if you pre-ordered 2+ games you saved $20 on each of them. So I was going to grab the PS4 and like 6-7 games I had been planning to buy anyway and save myself like $120. I started looking at the games announced for the PS4 and they seem to be mostly all shooters which I hate playing on consoles so I didn't bite the bullet. There was no deal on the console itself so I just said screw it I will wait. Nothing they have shown yet makes me want to run out and get one. The one or two games that looked neat are not system sellers for me and are games I know I will be able to get for like $20 a year or two after the thing comes out.
If I fall into some money I can blow on stuff then I might grab one, but as it is now I'm just going to keep waiting.
I've pre-ordered a PS4 to guarantee that I'm able to get one on release day--but the beauty my rationale is, if I feel less enthused in the months to come, I can always cancel the order and lose nothing. I suggest that individuals who mindlessly deduce that it's "stupid" to do something like that acknowledge the validity of hypothetical scenarios once in a blue moon. If I happen to get caught up in the wave come wintertime, I'll be satisfied knowing I don't have to worry about whether I can acquire a shiny new box or not, because it will be delivered right to my door.
I've not pre-ordered anything this time around (compared to Wii U at launch). There are not a lot of games that I'm super interested in the launch, so it seems more reasonable to wait until there are a few more games out to purchase. My primary thought is to go whenever Costco puts up a bundle with a 2nd controller + extra game for a slight cost increase over the single unit.
There is still some chance I do not bother with either console though. So far the new consoles have slower CPUs than my PC, and graphically are not any better. So while I am sure that I will eventually buy a PS4 or something.... it is probably going to be yet another console I barely use. I am mostly able to keep up with the slow Wii U release schedule, which makes a sudden option for more games really a non-concern unless a lot of my friends jump on. And I weirdly am uncomfortable even considering the new Xbox1 due to the partnerships with junk food companies.
