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


But we also didn't have smart phones, tablets or the iPod Touch and Steam was still relatively new in 2005. The gaming landscape has changed a lot & I'm not sure we'll see the sellouts like last gen. I mean the Wii was OoS for well over a year in some parts of the world. Even the 360 was hard to get 7 months after launch.

Now the hardware is far more standard & closer to PCs, I don't see them struggling to fulfill orders.

I'll probably be wrong but meh, just my thoughts.

We'll see. Most gamers I know locally don't have gamer PCs. They just have PCs.

I'll be an early adopter, but I won't pre-order. I'll buy one on release when I can. if that's day 1 then sure. I might "pre-order" in the sense that I might order online the week of release if my favorite store has them, but otherwise I'll just wait till they're available.

There's a lot of games I can't wait ti play and some I want to play on Xbox one and not 360. Graphics may not make a game, but they can sure as well make it a lot better and more immersive.

Pre-ordered the xbox from amazon, most likely going to pre-order a ps4 as well. I dont like not having all the consoles as I would hate to miss out on a "must have" game. Im in the same boat as Larry, birthday is in December as well, will combo them up with Christmas, whats $900 of pure entertainment anyway..

I will wait for 6 months after the release or so and see how the eco-system is done and how it works in Australia before buying it.

At £349 I'll get the PS4. If it were any higher I'd wait and get it later/second hand like the PS3. Hoping for some bundles nearer the time.

Norwegian price of the Xbox one just got revealed and it was a lot lower than I expected. from the normal way the prices change here, I expected it to be at least 5000 NOK. Turns out it's 3999. So I'm definitiely picking one up on release.

Forza five has officially made me change my stance about pre-ordering the Xbox one. The way they use the cloud to keep the game always persistent, and even if I play on my own anyone from my friends list will be playing along with me as well, it just pretty damn insane.

I still have to state FTR although I still do not support all of the decisions that MS have made, I will be picking up the Xbox One as well at launch.

This just really means I will not be upgrading my PC anytime soon. Which is not the biggest deal at the end of the day as I do not get to use it as much as I prefer as I cannot game anywhere near as much on the PC because of the tendinitis issues I have with my mouse wrist. In fact I originally got back into consoles heavily with the release of the 360 and ps3 as a recommendation from my wrist doctor. He was positive using a controller would have less of a detrimental affect then using a keyboard and mouse would. I can actually say it was on my doctors recommendation to pick up a console and controller.

I am actually going to preorder the One from either best buy or target so it is already paid in full, this way I am not dropping nearly a grand all at once on consoles during the holiday season when I will already be spending a lot of money on gifts for others. My initial plan was just to have others pick it up for me for the holidays, but they can pick up all the games and any accessories, extra controllers, etc. It will wind up being perfect from a gifts I ask for perspective.

Truth is I am an older gamer who makes a decent living so I fortunately do not have to choose one or the other. So I will own both consoles at launch, probably will play each way less then I wish I could, and I will lean towards the ps4 for multiplatform titles but still get to xperience the exclusives worthy of being played on both.

I am no doubt most excited for Forza 5 without any doubt and I may even consider picking up the wheel they are reportedly working on to release with Forza 5 as well. Especially since I'm assuming the MS wireless Wheel I currently own will no longer work. I personally feel racing games like Forza and Gran Turismo are 100 times more engaging with a wheel. Forza 5 looks absolutely amazing.

I'm not buying any new console until enough games are out that I want to buy.

Yeah I've never even owned a Forza and that was pretty awesome sounding so I preordered it.

I'm sure there will be more stuff like that, and deeper uses of the cloud services but we'll have to see what happens :)

With the current lineup of games, I'll have a bigger problem deciding what games to start with, I can only play one game at a time you know :)

not a fan of the lockin for games, however i like the xbox because of the controller, the PS controller always hurts my hands after a bit. Sounds crappy but after a few hours going back to the xbox controller feels like heaven.

The launch games look good, hopefully pick up a few, i will probably get a PS4 later on next year as there are some good games coming to it and i would hate to miss out.
