Putting "gaming PC" in there kind of biased the results.


It still has to be purchased, so money is a factor. I couldn't have presented this with any less bias...

Besides, that's why the 2nd and 3rd options are there.

I'm XB1/PS4/PC cause I'm invested in MSes exclusives having previously had a 360 and really want the new Kinect, wanted a PS3 but it's too late to give a crap, and the PC market has been disappointing me for roughly four years.

1st Purchase: "Gaming PC"
2nd Purchase: "PlayStation 4"
3rd Purchase: "I'll only need one or two platforms"

Wii U looks like a dust collector (No appeal to me, yet)
Xbox One looks slightly draconian so far (time will tell)

I'll definitely buy a PS4 eventually, but I'm not a day one buyer of consoles. I can't for the life of me understand why people line up to purchase a system that is at the point of being both the most expensive and the least useful . Why not wait until even the first price drop when a more extensive library of games has opened up? Not to mentioned a majority of those launch games will now likely be littered through-out games stores at a reduced price.

Although, these are the very same people that pre-purchase games with the promise of 0day DLC because it comes with a free -- usually useless -- item in-game that somehow negates the fact that you've never played it, reviews are sparse or non-existent and the game could be absolutely s**t.

Oh my, this turned into a rant didn't it.... Sorry.

Your Titan's more like A-10 Warthog, but ok :>


lol, Titan is awesome. Just don't have a driver conflict while using a few of them in SLI or you'll get a clash of the Titans.

I don't intend to buy them day one, but soon enough. I've been thinking about building a quiet browsing/casual use box and what's the point when the consoles will serve that purpose?
