If i could afford i'd get the PS4, the hardware is great. The Xbone requires the cctv in your living room always connected so i'll pass on that. Wii U will be good once good games are out and the price lowers a bit, i'd consider getting one then.

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.

If you can't afford it, find another way to entertain yourself

1. $60 is not that much for a game if you get 10+ hours out of it
-You can spend this for a night of bowling and dinner
-People save money for these kind of things

2. So you are going to Pirate from people who work their ass off making a game for you?
-Would you steal food from someone because you felt like it was too expensive?

3. Don't Pirate\steal\be a thief

PS4 - Maybe. I'm going to wait out the initial launch to see all of the features and how they turn out.
Xbox - No. Too many bad requirements, none of which are necessary for gaming. Good job Microsoft.
WiiU - No.

Probably a ps4 when it gets cheap. I don't play games all that much anymore and only a few titles really engage me.

I'm a big Halo fan though, in fact it's one of the very few fps I like because I'm not big on fps games except Halo and Tribes. But the XBOX One so far has disappointed in a major scale and I can't see myself getting it at all. At this point the only thing that could get me to buy it would be backwards compatibility which I still value greatly in any console.

I hope Bungie does an amazing fps game on PS4 so I can forget about Halo.

Xbox One for me, though probably not right away. No to the others.

Thinking much ahead, I wonder what handhelds Sony has planned after PS4, because you know they'll be one..

PS4: Yes (although I may avoid launch if Sony decide to price it stupidly at first like they did with the PS3).

Xbox One: No - over the last couple of years I've slowly converted over to using the PS3 over the 360 as my main console - I see no reason to have both next gen.

Wii U: Already bought. And love it to bits.

PS4 - Yes, at launch
Xbox One - No
Wii U - No, but at the same time, I have owned EVERY Nintendo console in the past (NES, SNES, Virtual Boy, N64, GameCube, Wii) so maybe eventually.

Little analysis on price for both Xbox One and PS4:

Blu-ray Drive: $20 (probably even cheaper by this fall)
500GB HDD - $40 (Sony hasn't announced the HDD size for PS4 yet, but I would be shocked if it was anything other then 500GB)
Memory - $30 (DDR3 for Xbox), $60-$70 (GDDR5 for Sony)
Wi-Fi, USB, ports, other chips, etc. - $30
APU - $150-$200 (Both Xbox and PS4 are using bargain-basement "Jaguar" cores from AMD, and not even pushing the clockspeed of them either at 1.60GHz. These cores are meant to put in SoCs priced around $20-$30 that go into tablets, so even with 8-cores, we are talking very cheap. The GPU part is obviously more substantial, but still nothing compared to high-end PCs. PS4 is now confirmed to have substantially more power then Xbox in this area: 768 shader processors for Xbox, 1152 for PS4. Both are running at 800MHz and both are using the exact same GCN architecture, which means that PS4 is roughly 50% more powerful. Even so, at 1152 SPs we are talking about a GPU in the range of Radeon 7850-7870, or $200-$250 retail price. Xbox also has a 32MB of eDRAM, which adds to die area & cost. I would put both PS4 and Xbox at around $150-$200 for the APU, and probably closer to $150 considering how mature 28-nm already is.)

Total BOM - $270-$320 for Xbox, $300-$360 for PS4.

MAIN POINT: Both of these system can launch at $499 and make a nice profit. Or they can launch at $399 and still make a small profit or take a slight loss.

Xbox: No
Wii U: No

Owned a PS2, and PS3. The multimedia aspects of xbox don't justify me switching for sony to ms console wise. I am not huge into FPS games so Halo and other MS Exclusive titles don't do much for me. So the used game/always on doesn't bug me.. but the ps4 will give me the pure gaming I want from a console.

PS4 - Maybe... Will probably wait for a price-drop.

Xbox One - As of today, I don't think so. More impressed with Sony's console... Will not be paying a fee to gain access to a game's multi-player portion, Netflix, etc.

Wii U - Already own one, and I like it very much.

I'm more interested in building a gaming rig, rather than buying another console.
