I only upgraded from my PS2 last year, having finally completed , gotten as far as I could or just stopped playing because I wasn't enjoying with my catalogue of games. I got a 360, it lasted less than 2 months. Not for the reason many might suspect, I just couldn't get on with the controller, it never fitted my hand well and gave my hand cramps and so, it got traded in for a PS3.

Do you have small hands? Asking because I do, and the PS3 is what I ended up getting when I was considering a console because the controllers felt much more comfortable for my small hands, whereas the XBox controller felt awkward. Though I hear there's more of a middle-ground this time around with the PS4 controller.

And yeah, as for exclusives, for the most part, it seems like the PS3/PS4 exclusives have more personality, which is another thing that attracted me to it.
Aye, tiny hands, inherited from my father, size (uk) 12 feet, which follows my mother's trait, who had size nines, monster sized for a woman born in the early nineteen-fifties.

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

I am leaning towards the PS4, but then with most of the games I will be buying the next gen sequels for (and probably importing characters/saves etc.. into the sequels) are ones I have all the DLC on the Xbox and not on the PS3, so I may eventually get the xbox One.

That said, I wont be buying either until Dragon Age 3 comes oout, so plenty of time to choose.

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

I feel like a broken record

Went into a big electronics chain today after work out of curiosity and saw more than 40 XOne's sitting there next to even more Wii U's but no PS4 anywhere in sight apart from the demo device (sidenote.. the controller feels really good).

Damn.. i don't believe MS has anything to complain about but when you see how hot people are for PS4's you kinda feel sorry for them.

The only person I feel sorry for is me...being unable to find a damn PS4!

Hey at least you probably have the option of looking at other stores to get it.

I was paying for the majority of the price of mine with Best Buy gift cards so if I wanted to get a PS4 cheaper than full price I had to wait for them to get one.

Still it was worth it to get a PS4 for about only $80.

Sony expects supply shortages to remain until around April. The launch in Japan last weekend used up everything they had left in stock, so you might have a long wait to get your hands on one.

I probably don't need to spend the money right now anyway. My PS3 works perfectly fine.

I miss that controller. Not being very coordinated I tend to mash the buttons if they are too close together.

It definitely was a great fit for larger hands, ergonomically speaking.

You still looking for one? Walmart's got two bundles in stock if you're willing to pay full price for two additional games ($509) or one game and one accessory ($517).

I got one on launch and have only played Need For Speed until I wasn't good enough to win the challenges anymore, then I got bored and stopped playing. Passed on Thief because of the mediocre reviews, so I guess I'm waiting on Infamous. I'm not as big a gamer as I used to be, so buying on launch is probably impulse more than anything else.

I really haven't been looking that hard. It doesn't have any games that I want yet.

XB1 £30 price cut in UK was made even sweeter by Gamestop (didn't know they had UK stores ) when they cut it by another £30 for £60 of saving for £369.99 while stocks last and it includes Titanfall so coulkdn't say no.

Got XB1, PS4, 360, PS3, Wii U + Vita and gaming PC so I can't say I will ever be bored
