So why aren't you buying a PS4 or XBone? No gaems? Worried about hardware issues? Don't have the money? I'm personally waiting until at least next holiday season for games to come out before I get a PS4 and I've got no interest in an XBone.
I honestly don't need a console when I have a PC that has been giving me, and will continue to give me, a better overall experience than a console. Yeah, sure, consoles have exclusives... and so does the PC. Should there ever be a game exclusive to consoles that I really want to play, well, though luck in that case.
I don't have the money right now and have a backlog of games I'd like to get around to, so holding off on buying a new console seems like a great way to finally get stuck into some of those games from the past gen (and even a couple from the gen prior - DDS1&2, I'm looking at you) that I haven't gotten around to. Part of the reason I don't have the money, too, is that I've been spending it on new release current gen games, which probably works out of the best in the end, considering the launch lineups aren't looking particularly spectacular. That said, I have a habit of wanting to buy the hot new thing, so watching all of this next gen launch hype is driving me crazy. Thankfully Zelda and Super Mario 3D World release over the next two weeks, which should hopefully make all of that launch awesome a little easier to get through without constantly wishing I could zap out and buy a new system. :P
I'll probably wind up buying a PS4 in the first couple of months of next year.
I'll probably end up buying both later on next year. Most of the current games I want to play are coming out on the PC so I'll end up picking them up there first but eventually with things like Infamous, Destiny, Titanfall, MGS etc. coming out then I'll end up buying at least one new console. But yea, no real rush to buy a new console but man the hype is kinda making it hard to resist!
No reason to, as there's nothing especially appealing going on with it right now, and there's still a couple of upcoming new games that'll keep me occupied on current-gen. That, and an awful lot video games I've been playing on my PS2 recently as well.. finally decided to play a little more The Warriors. Man, that game's awesome... Hey, @alex? How have you not done a bombastica video for The Warriors yet??
Anywhoo, the upcoming inFAMOUS will most likely be the point where I finally decide to enter the fray of next-gen consolin.
The game's simply are not there for me right now. Plus, I don't really have the money right now. However, when spring rolls around, I will be very, very torn between a PS4 and an Xbox One. The former is more powerful and less expensive but the latter has more exclusives that appeal to me. Decisions, decisions......
I have way too many games to play already on my PC and existing consoles so there is no rush to get even more stuff. The only reason I would get one at launch is just to get in on the hype and excitement of a launch, but I know I'll feel stupid when I see them available for cheaper and bundled with better games in a few months.
The other issue is that the only launch games I'm interested in are Dead Rising and Forza, which are both on the more expensive console, and that makes it even more difficult to take the plunge!
I've still got my PS4 pre-order in but with only one game im interested in (Black Flag) being available im just not sure i want to spend the money on it right now. Some Japanese developed games should be hitting early next year so may just hold off until late January and pick one up then, i want to be more excited about next gen but i just feel completely indifferent right now.
I wasn't planning to, but seeing the PS4 launch coverage made triggered my 'I need that now!' itch. The launch is still some two weeks away in Europe and chances are the first batch of PS4's is sold out and that new stock isn't available until 2014. So I probably won't buy one at launch, but I surely will in the next few months.
I simply cant afford it at the moment, will make choosing one of the two easier i suppose when i can see the list of games available for each. Microsoft really let me down at the end of this generation though with a move away from making great games for their platform and moving towards being an all in one box. All the games i wanted to play where playstation exclusives near the end.
I'll be getting an Xbox One.
I'm interested in checking out it's exclusives for myself and I'm gonna be grabbing the next-gen versions of a few current-gen games for it.
I'd have probably wound up getting a PS4 at launch too but there's just nothing there that interests me right away.
Never was big on Killzone and Knack seems potentially neat, but not $549 neat. Pretty much everything else of interest I can play on my PC already, so pretty much holding out on grabbing one until Infamous: Second Son comes out.
I loved "the blades" and I loved "NXE" but every time I boot up my 360 nowadays I'm shocked at how lousy the current UI is and even more shocked at how long it takes to sign in. I like what Microsoft is offering on paper but I still have too many questions regarding the quality of both Microsoft's new hardware and software.
Sony is doing nothing interesting with the PS4. I know a lot of people are super-plussed with their pure-gaming-machine message but I'm not. After spending a generation of using my 360 and PS3 as media servers on my home network I'm not willing to go back. Sony's exclusives have also never been that big a draw for me.
The lack of games doesn't help especially considering how many awesome-looking, current gen games I have in backlog. I'm also not interested in paying a monthly fee for multi-player at this point in my life and I'm wary about getting tangled up in Sony and MS's media services.
Between my backlog, games releasing on current consoles, and total lack of interesting launch games, there was just no reason to pull the trigger yet.
No white sku is a slightly smaller concern, but they do look a hell of a lot better in my game room. I live in that house and want it to look nice. Don't judge me.
