I am just wondering how many people intend on getting a next-gen console as soon as they can get their mitts on one and who is going to lean back and wait awhile before purchase?


Personally? I am no longer an early adopter. I bought an original 3DS only for the XL to get released. I bought a Vita, and although I think it is a great system, I would like to see more games for the thing, and I have resisted the urge to buy a Wii U because, frankly, their software library just isn't doing it for me.

When I do decide the time is right I will most likely be getting a PS4. I have a huge backlog of games, so I have plenty to keep me occupied until I feel the time is right to upgrade.

I just pre-ordered a Day 1 edition XBone. I just couldn't resist after watching a video on [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6_Ob32JScw"]KI3[/url]. That, and I'm a sucker for buying stuff. I'm going to wait and see what games are available for the PS4 before going that route.

This guy. :laugh:

And I decided since their release is so close to the holidays, which my birthday happens to be December 21st 4 days before Christmas, I will buy myself the PS4, and ask for my family members to all chip in and get the XBox One as my combined birthday/christmas gift, so I plan on having both now. I feel better receiving gifts of things I did not necessarily want to spend the money on myself but have others get it for me. Even if I barely have time to play either these days.

This is also an issue for me as well. Time poor or I want to do other **** with my time (watch movies, new anime, read, audio books etc.)

Not me. The X1 doesn't look good from a consumer standpoint, and the PS4 has the potential to fall into the same trap but in a different manor. Both have pretty lackluster launch titles. So I'll wait and see how the chips fall.

The one caveat is that my brother is still planning on getting an X1 despite the obvious terribleness, and he may pressure me into getting one for co-op Dark Souls 2. But I am going to adamantly resist that as long as I can, since I can still get it for my 360.

I am usually an early adopter. I bought the N64, Xbox, Xbox LIVE, and Xbox 360 on launch day.

This time however, I will be purchasing the PS4 on launch day if I'm able to get one. I'm going to visit EB Games or Best Buy/Future Shop soon and try to pre-order one.

lol that's another scenario where the 24 hr online requirement comes into play, never thought of that one :p

You're going to have to post a picture or video of the PS4 when it's been installed in your car!

Love new tech toys to play around with and will be picking up the PS4 at launch (put in an Amazon preorder for the convenience factor).

What kind of car are you getting? I'm just wondering why someone would install a gaming system in their car, do you spend that much time in it?

I preordered the X1. Honestly, as annoyed as I am with my computer and computer gaming in general, I plan to make it my main machine for everything and just load up my laptop or future tablet when I need apps...it's much quieter.

I've already pre-ordered a Xbone, and I'm probably going to grab a PS4 as well.

I'm actually quite optimistic about this gen, I wasn't interested in any PS3 games at all (As well as the console itself, $999 at launch :laugh: ), but the ones they've shown at E3 look interesting, as well as the PS4 launch titles.

Pre-Ordered the PS4!

Can't decide if I want to pre-order it or if I want to hold off a few weeks and wait until the dust settles to see how everything plays out. I'm largely against being an early adopter, as I hate the idea of putting myself at risk of being screwed, but the Xbone is not an option for me, and Nintendo I can wait until they at least have some decent games (and their console becomes dirt cheap).

Not sure though... Would love to see the PS3 drop in price too. The PS Vita looks cool with how it will work with the PS4... Sony can do so much with bundling options as well. They have a lot to work with in the Playstation ecosystem.

I'm still up in the air of which one to get.. so I'm gonna wait till better games come out for them. Then I'll choose which one.

Though there is speculation that the BF4 footage they showed was on the pc version.

Was originally tempted to get an X1 pretty early, but after a couple turnoffs, being unimpressed with the PS4 (and lack of trust of Sony in general) and both console's titles, it's a no for me. Mayyybe down the road I may give them another look. Might have to finally get a 360 just for giggles though. Super late adopter.

Part of me says, "do it. Get it as soon as you see it." The more cautious side of me says, "hold off for a bit and see what happens. You still have your PS3 after all."

I guess we'll see which side wins. :laugh:

I usually buy within the first 6 months to a year. Depends how excited I am for the console, the pricing & launch lineups.

I'm only pre-ordering because I don't fancy leaving it to chance like the 360 & sitting outside stores in the freezing cold in November/December again. Not sure the hype will be the same this time around though for either console.

Might be. Former generations didn't last eight years and the current ones really aren't cutting it for modern AAA games.

At the moment i will be an early adopter of both consoles.
Part of me is saying, upgrade my PC.

Another part of me is saying, give up on gaming.

I used to be an early adopter of tech back in the 90's. Then learned from that mistake and now tend to wait a year or so.

I [b]won't[/b] be buying the XB1. I'll buy the PS4 when a PS4-only game comes out that I want to play (I'm looking at you God of War).

Well God of War: Ascension just came out so it will probably be quite a while before another God of War game is made.
