I'll go Next Gen when there's a decent catalogue of games to choose from. At the moment my PS3 is acting as a Blu Ray player and my Xbox 360 is.. just there. Probably never going to switch it on again,


It's funny actually now I think about it. It was a great console but there's absolutely NOTHING on it which I'll ever want to come back to. I still have my PS2 and GameCube because there are games on those which I go back to every so often.. but the 360.. Honestly .. I got nothin.

I still use my X360 a lot for GTA V/Online. My PS3 doesn't get much use anymore. Last time I used it was during the holidays to play MGS :laugh:

It's still sat in a corner of my room gathering dust crying for me to mod it, like it has been for the past 4 years.

Still use my PS3 and XBox360 as my main consoles, haven't upgraded yet. I'm however, planning to get the PS4 and when I do I keep my current consoles. Lot's of great games and I'll just store them eventually.

When I upgrade my main PC, the previous hardware from it go to my other PCs (got four). That way when I upgrade one PC, I upgrade them all.

The parts from the last PC in line, go to friends if they need it or just dumped to garbage.

I've moved my 360 down next to my PC so I can connect it to my monitor. It's currently a GTA5 machine, but I've still got a couple of games I haven't finished (RDR) or have missed stuff in (Terminals in Halo 3/4)

I never noticed just how crappy the picture is until I hooked it up to my monitor, you can tell it's unchanged since 2005.

I still have it hooked up to my main TV and play it quite regularly. Still have a huge backlog of games to work through so I don't see myself putting it away anytime soon.

sold the PS3 and 360 to friends for very modest prices, just to slightly mitigate the cost of the new consoles and so that my friends can get back into gaming, as they're not the types to get new devices as soon as they launch.
