Love my Xbox 360 (and before that Xbox). Used to have a playstation one back in the day.

Microsoft's new offer, is very disappointing. Not interested in TV aspect, given we have three 360s in the house, none of which are in the living room. The DRM malarkey will stop us sharing games between ourselves. The connect once a day is bad, given one of the rooms has no net access, it is at the back of the extension and can't pick up the wireless. So unless we hard wire the net upstairs, it doesn't seem likely the Microsoft will get a sale there.

So at the moment, if I had to buy one on release day, it would be a PS4.

Regardless, I personally, won't be buying either until the price goes below £200.

PS4 for me. I hate this new Microsoft who has picked up a terrible habit of shoving things they like down our throat.

Sony on the other hand has evolved into slightly less evil compared to past few years. Sony going against their usual DRM stance is very surprising. (Yes DRM of some sorts would be present on discs, that's a given but I don't want CIA and Indian Govt staring at my awkward Kinect movements.) What if I want to play naked? :rofl: I also have sold 90% of my games at 60-70% of their original price to fund for newer games. Can't do that with Xbox One.

Sony wins this round of Console war.... by a fair margin.

Sony seems to have learnt some lessons this gen and doesn't seem to be intent on repeating past mistakes.

I might eventually get an Xbox, but it will probably be years after I buy my PS4. Essentially the same thing I did this gen.

I "may" eventually get an Xbox One for Forza and their overall better selection of games but I am having serious thoughts to skip this generation of consoles. Sony products are so unreliable (nice way of saying junk) and Microsoft with the Xbox One just laid an egg.

Microsoft let Sony off the hook when they had them on the ropes.

PS4, the Xbox one has really upset me and a lot of other gamers.

Neither. I don't see any reason why I would buy either this year. Destiny is the only game that interests me and it's on Xbox 360 as well.

I may eventually cough up for Halo but after my disappointment with Halo 4, that's not guaranteed either.

and lot of pre-emptive "but this is neowin" sony defense in this thread. (and poll clearly proves all of them wrong, as of this post)

The MS DRM policies are a joke and I cannot go away from region free after the PS3.

Why pretend that you were going to buy Xbox? DRM or not, price or not - you bought PS3 at launch. That says everything.

I bought Xbox and Xbox 360 at launch, what does that say?

I don't see much Sony has right now, probably more in 2014 from them so I can hold off on a PS4 till later, maybe Feb-March of 2014. The Xbox One has more titles coming from the start so I'll get that first as a holiday gift.

PS4.

Maybe one day Xbox One if Microsoft get their **** together. Until then I will be rocking Steam, Wii U, 3DS XL and PS4.

Didn't know buying a console at launch means you have no intention of buying the competitors?

PS4 for me. Microsoft really shot themselves in the foot with the DRM / Internet connection thing.

I'm glad that Sony seemed to have listened to what people wanted with the recent DRM campaigns etc.

I'm not pleased about having to pay for online gameplay with the PS4, but I guess the games that plus comes with are a nice bonus.

It's going to be an interesting few months ahead, thats for sure.

Very surprised (good way) at Sony.

The ability to fire up a PS4 and still play games 15-20 years from now means PS4 is on my list of console's to buy.
$100 cheaper, region free games, and no mandatory camera / microphone connection requirement is icing on the cake for me.
When will depend on game availability (or if there BC via internet streaming is more robust then I think it will be), however Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3 are games that could trigger purchase of the system at their release.

Just maintaining the current console business model of used games, no internet requirement (vs Microsoft attempt to shift to pc game model) is enough to counterbalance the PSN Plus requirement for multiplayer with me. The fact that Plus is dual membership for both PS3 / PS4 at the same time make it a bit easier to swallow.

(go back and read my post, I didn't make a general statement. Why are you upset that I called out AB?)
