Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

Also when you take into account you have to re-buy Xbox One when it permanent redrings, PS4 is way cheaper.

I probably won't buy PS4 on release day, not unless it immediately has games I want to play. But I'll definitely get it. You should never really buy a console right when it comes out. There's always bugs, there's usually a price drop after the first wave.

Yes, because Microsoft learned nothing from their design problems has had sold nothing but lemons for the last six years. And Sony's hardware is a bastion of perfection and reliability.

There's a half-dozen games this fall that I want. Admittedly, none of them are next-gen exclusive. So, these are my choices:

1) Buy a next-gen console, and buy the games for it.
2) Do not buy a next-gen console yet. Buy the crappier versions for the old generation.
3) Do not buy a next-gen console yet. Don't buy the games until I have one sometime in 2014... if the games are even still available then.

I don't like #3, because I don't want to miss out on the games. I don't like #2, because then I'm stuck with the inferior version. (For Skylanders and Lego Marvel, it probably won't make a significant difference; for Watchdogs and Destiny it will.) So I'm choosing to go with #1.

Yes, I'll be paying more for the console than if I waited. But that's the price to pay to not get left behind.

Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

I've owned a PS3 and 360 for about the same amount of time. I've logged about four times as much hours on the PS3 than 360. Here's the score.

Permanent system failures that required me to buy a new system

PS3: 0
360: 1

Crashes

PS3: 1
360: ~20

Failures on system startup

PS3: 0
360: ~10

There hasn't been a Sony system that froze a lot since PS1.

You sure XBox One won't have similar problems? I'll believe it when I see it.

Games don't cease to exist after 12 months you know. You can't miss out on games. In fact, the longer you wait the cheaper they get, so I'm really not sure what you're worried about.

Yeah, that's a weird concern. Even if your local stores stop carrying a game after a whole, they can still be purchased online (or hell, even downloaded right onto your system).

Yup, I'm still picking up games brand new for my DS and PS2 that came out in 2006.

Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

Well, I just know that I've historically had problems trying to find copies of old games for reasonable prices (even online) - like the Ace Attorney games, or the first and fourth Layton games. Maybe I just like the wrong games.

Phoenix Wright - Ace Attorney -- NEW for $20 + shipping.

Professor Layton and the Curious Village -- $15 complete + shipping

Professor Layton and the Last Specter -- $35 new (includes shipping)

All of these are the "Buy it Now" prices.

It's available now. It wasn't when I was originally looking back in 2009/2010.

Not new.

More expensive than at release - wasn't it $30?

I'm a Baseball video game snob so as long as the only good game is made by Sony exclusively for Sony systems then that is all I am ever going to get.

Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

I own both the original Xbox and Xbox 360. I am not happy with what Microsoft has done with the Xbox One. I love Halo but I will wait for a while before i decide what to buy. I might not even buy a console considering that my job keeps me busy most of the time.

PS4. I already have the Wii U. I'm on the fence about Xbox One.

Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

I'll be getting a PS4 when I can. Once the bugs are worked out of it. Same with a Wii U. The Wii U will probably come first for me... since it comes with AV cables. As for an Xbox One, heck no. Not interested.

I thought both the Wii U and the PS4 came with HDMI cables?

Sticking with Sony. I've been a Playstation owner since the PS1. Still have all my games for the PS1, PS2, and PS3.
