I'll wait until i can get a bundle with a few games and hopefully an extra controller for a reasonable price. Hopefully that'll be around Christmas time.

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 :)

That's probably true for me as well, I haven't check what the actual launch titles are yet.

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.

....

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.


Before any of the real announcements I was 100% Xbox, but as things started to get a little clearer I started to think about maybe going for a PS4 (chances are i will only get one), it looks like a massive step up from the PS3 that I didn't get on so well with.

Forza 5 is the one game that keeps me on the Xbox side, loved the series since number 2 and with the added cloud features you mention it sounds like Turn 10 are finding new ways to really improve what was nearly a perfect console racing sim.

I also don't see any real exclusive titles on the PS4 that excite me like Forza and possibly Halo.

As for the OP question, depending on funds I hope to pre-order and get as close to release as possible but I'm holding out at the moment to see if they release any decent bundles.

I at the very least enjoy watching all of the people rushing out to get their hands on a console on launch day.

Like watching cattle bustling through those small pens.

I've got the PS4 on preorder. So count me in.

I bought a PS2, PS3, and several Gameboy's all on day 1.

In this case it's as much about I've wanted a new computer for a few years now and there hasn't been tech that interested me. This will take my comps place for general use and save my eardrums from whatever hell they'd end up in otherwise.

No contest for me. I still own a PS3, never a 360. I have bought into the Windows ecosystem though with WP and Windows 8, so it is a no brainer for me to go with the Xbox one. I personally think that it is going to be the better all around console of the two in the long run. HTPCs are expensive to do right, so if this thing is capable of half of what they say it should be worth itself not even taking games into consideration.

I don't even own 1st gen consoles, so I wont be getting a new one. I'll stick to getting PC games 12-18 months after they come out for a fraction of the initial price.
