I buy video games myself year round. On Christmas I ask for boring stuff that I probably actually need, like clothes. Though someone is usually nice enough to get me a game or two in addition to that, so it's all win-win.
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.
