I'm curios of how many people here have dived into next-gen yet.

 

Because I for one, am in no rush for a next gen console (in fact, I recently purchased a new PS3), I can't see myself buying one for at least another two years, unless developers start releasing a lot of gameplay focused games, which I can't see happening. I'm happy that games are 'cross-gen' for now, I am only getting Watch Dogs for PS3.

One day I might pick up an Xbox, but for now my focus is the PS4. There are a few simple things keeping me from buying one for now:

 

- A lot of great looking games seem to be coming summer - fall '14 onwards. So until then it's pretty

"ehh" to me.

 

- Many friends are still on PS3

 

- But one of the bigger reasons is that I'm waiting to upgrade the HDD. I want to put this Samsung Spinpoint M9T 2 TB drive in to future proof the PS4. It matches all of the specifications needed to swap out the PS4 HDD.

It was announced back in November and was immediately available to certain businesses. The regular consumer version is supposedly going to ship this spring.(Or so I read on a seagate support facebook page) Hoping to hear more soon.

 

But hey if anyone knows where I can pick one up sooner I'd love to hear.

Probably get a ps4 around christmastime or early 2015. This'll be my first Sony console ever plus PS Now will allow me to play all the great games I missed from the ps2 and ps3 era.

I own a Xbox 360 and want to buy a PS4 within the next 4 months. I like my Xbox 360, but I want to try the other side and its exclusiv titles. Xbox One doesn't convince me anyway. After I don't know how many years (PS1) I will come back to Sony.

I will wait until Watch Dogs releases between April and June and then buy the PS4. After WD I will play The Elder Scrolls Online in June or a bit later, then Destiny in September and The Witcher 3 in ?. I'm also interested in Thief 4 and Dying Light and I really hope it will be possible to play The Last of Us on PS4 still in this year. Sure, I could play some of these titles on my current gen console, but I don't really want to.

I'll only have to wait a few months and then I think I will have a good 2014 with the PS4.

Not touching Next-Gen for a while.

 

However, when I do get around to it, I'm gonna go for an Xbox One for a couple reasons:

 

- I like the media features it has. Also, I don't care if it's weaker than PS4. It plays games fine, and most games I'm gonna be playing on my PC anyway.

 

- I'm one of the few people who likes the Kinect.

 

- My friend, who I'll be living with, already has a PS4, so why have 2?

 

- I prefer the Xbox controller.

Got a PS4. Had it pre-ordered since like May 2013 or something. I first was going to cancel it and get it March 21st with inFAMOUS, but just got it for the f*ck of it so I can enjoy the PS+ content (Resogun is really good, 9.5/10). This decision turned out well, since some Dutch analysts are expecting the PS4 to be sold out here until September :lol:

3-4 years before some of those games are released.

 

I might be able to get an X1 for $200 this Friday.

I was going to get a PS4 during the holiday rush but luckily there was a mix-up at the store and my pre-order got cancelled. The whole reason I wanted it was to play Watch Dogs on a next gen console but I realized there really wasn't a point to buying a PS4 yet. Any games that get released for it are also going to be released on current gen consoles for roughly the next year. I'll probably buy one in time for Destiny or Dragon Age Inquisition. By the time those two games get released, I feel like there might actually be some good next gen exclusive games on the horizon.

I have my PS4 and I'm not getting an Xbox One, might get a Wii U one day if they start getting some games I'm interested in and if it's at a discounted price. Probably not getting an Ouya either lol.

I don't like spending any more than $150 on a console, so when it gets to around that price, then I will buy it.

I'm going to wait a year or two to see which one has the better exclusives, grab that first, and take it from there. I usually play games on my PC anyway.

 

In any case, I alternate between 'plays a lot of games' and 'only plays a few' every so often, and I'm firmly in the latter category right now. Most games just don't hold my interest anymore save for a few series.

I have an Xbox One, but my brother plays it. I've only played on it once. I might buy a PS4 when the slim version comes out (if it ever does), which is many years. I didn't buy my PS3 until the 120 GB slim version released. My brother and I have gone through 5 Xbox 360s ever since the Elite came out.

I have't purchased one yet and I'm not planning to do it in the nearest future. To buy one first I need to be sure, which one will give me better exclusives (that's what matter the most for me) and I very likely won't touch one without game I can't live without (most likely next GTA).

I won't get any of the newer systems until either the new GTA (or any other R* open world game), Farcry or Just Cause game comes out that doesn't simultaneously release on the PC, since I just built one this winter.

I was going to buy one on release day. But then I realized there was no games for next gen that I really wanted to warrant getting a brand new console. All the games I was enjoying were available on both 360 and XB1. So until a game comes out that really tickles my fancy I will hold off on the upgrade.

I didn't move from PS2 to PS3 until the first Assassins Creed came out, because that for me was my "must have" game that forced me to switch.

If it wasn't for GTA V, my 360 would have been in the closet come last Nov. I think Microsoft and Sony knew that and they didn't want that. They want the systems to be alive for a few more years. Whats a good way to do that? Well making GTA V only on a 360 or PS3 did just that.  I think that is a big reason why GTA V has not come out on PC as well. If GTA V came out for PC, and say a player has both PC and a 360 or PS3. Which do you think the player is going to play it on? PC for sure. I know most do not agree with me. Think outside the box for a moment. I know a business move when I see one, and well this is business as usual.

I haven't bought one and I'm not planning to either. I'm a pc gamer and that's not gonna change anytime soon. There are simply not any console exclusive games that I absolutely MUST play. All the games that really matters to me have made their way to pc as well...

Still patiently waiting for GTAV though
