You should add a poll

 

Personally, I prefer Gran Turismo and Killzone so I'll vote playstation, but that is the only reason, (sony exclusives)

And finances of course, I had to make a choice, get my very first ever launch day console, or upgrade my pc further.

Console won as I'm at the point where upgrading this machine isn't a viable option anymore

Not a high priority for me.. the X1 is on the to-do down the road as a larf and the non-gaming features look interesting but primarily a PC gamer, neither are in the "ZOMG gotta have it" category. No interest in the PS4 as it's just gaming and I have better for that, also have trust issues with Sony. Opinion of course. I might eventually get a Wii-U for giggles too now that some of the titles that I'm interested in are starting to show up.

And yea, a poll might not be a bad idea.

Mostly a money issue right now for me. Kinda planning a wedding so $500 is a bit harder part with at the moment for a gaming console, but I'll pick one up next year.

I've got plenty of unplayed games on the 360 now though to keep me going for a while now that they've been selling a bunch of good ones for cheap or free the last six months.

I'm not sure I understood this sentence, but to answer the topic title I am not getting a PS4 for the moment for several reasons. For one, I'd rather wait until they've fixed most issues. For another reason, I would rather wait until there is a larger selection of games available. And finally, I still have a huge library of PS3 games that I need to work my way through. I'm not going to be bored waiting for a while.

Sorry was on my tablet (auto-correction) at the time I started the post. I was talking about some people are waiting on the PS4 and Xbox One. Not buying it at the time of release.

I can't vote because it's not so much a money issue and so on as it is a few other things.  In the long run I plan to get both, XB1 first as I'm going to get the PS4 mostly for any JRPG exclusives it'll end up having.   But at this point none of the them are for sale in my country.  I think the PS4 goes on sale here December 13th?  I don't know about the XB1 release date either and I don't want to import a console.      So that's one thing, the other thing is that right now I'm in no rush to play any of the games out for either system.   I'll keep playing on my 360 (just started Tomb Raider) and the PC till the time comes.

As the option i'd pick isn't up there.

I'm not getting either yet because the consoles feel like they were released too early to meet the christmas rush.

The WiiU at the moment is the more attractive prospect. Thinking of picking one up at christmas.

 

Probably middle of next year or maybe after the summer i'll pick them up. When more games are out.

 

Seriously the launches for both of the consoles are poor.

Ah, I thought that might be it. Well then my answer still stands. :)

I haven't voted in the poll, as none of the options in the first question suit my reasons. However, I am waiting for the PS4. I don't have any interest in the Xbox.

I'm in a remote locality for work and cannot test out the consoles.

 

I wanted to try out a game or two and the console itself before I made a purchase.

I can't afford to. And more than that, I can't justify the price. When my PS3 died last year, I bought a new one and haven't played it anywhere near enough to make it worth the money invested, a second time. And based off that, I don't see a PS4 getting enough usage either. Now more than ever, these new consoles are just over glorified PCs anyways. So it's pretty much out of my interests.

Cash mostly.  I love the X1 but I need a new PC first because of Mantle, and the X1 needs more games before I feel right dropping $500 on kit.

I'll wait until my 360 red rings. I'm on my third one so it should happen soon ;-)
