PS4- Maybe for the right price
Xbox One - Yes but not right away, few months later probably.
Wii U- lol no. I don't care about Mario and Zelda enough.

Currently an Xbox 360 owner, after seeing the specs of the Xbox One compared to the PS4 and the way it seems to be very TV orientated i am at this time swaying towards a PS4, however i will have a clearer idea after E3 next week.

PS4 - Yes
Xbox One - No
Wii U - No

I started the current generation with a Xbox 360 and after having three of them red ring within 2 years, I finally decided to get a PS3. Prior to this generation, I was a PlayStation brand "kid" so I still find it funny I got a 360. However I enjoyed hundreds of hours of gaming on it until enough was enough. I've had 0 problems with my PS3 and I also have a PS Vita, so a PS4 seems like a natural fit for my household.

Even if the PS4 has some DRM/anti-used plan, it can't be any worse than the X1's, and Sony can't really mess up any worse than Microsoft did with their reveal of that thing.

Interesting to see people switching from Microsoft to Sony.

Not sure at the moment, waiting on more details from both the main players but currently it stands at XboxOne in the lead, slowly followed by PS4 but with no intention of a WiiU

Because of the lack of backwards compatibility, when you buy the X1 you have to start fresh anyway, this gives people a very good reason to switch to PS4 if they ever thought about doing so.

The PS4 isn't going to play their 360 games either. ;D

Not likely. Really, Im having trouble justifying buying a second PS3 last year, after my first one died. I just dont use it enough to be worth the money.

I'll probably buy all of them, but only if/when they have a few decent games, won't be buying any on launch day(s).

I'm just not sure, there's too many variables to take into account until E3 and how the execution of these platforms will begin to take shape.

Well this time it is a level playing field. All accessories aren't compatible from current gen. No backwards compatibility. They are both releasing around the same time. This gen is essentially starting fresh.

Exactly. Even being a PC gamer, I think I'll be jumping on board with a PS4 this time around to see what all I have been missing from the console world. Also, given that I'm working full time and going to school full time, I don't think I could justify paying for a Gold subscription with Microsoft that I would barely even use to begin with.

A lot of rich people here willing to pay $60 for games (and their 2, 3, and 4th parts)

Unless it can play backups, not intrested.
