There are rumours being thrown around left right and centre. I was just wondering based on what has been said about the consoles which one has captivated the biggest interest from gamers.

This is a simple poll set up where you can make a choice and base it on what you have heard from rumours and what you consider to be a plausable or completly fake etc.

So cast a vote state your reasons and get discussing in what you think has truth behind it and why you like or hate certain things or what you want to see in the next gen consoles

ps4. Dont plan on buying 720 AT ALL
#3 Posted by ziggyww (907 posts) -
I plan on buying a PS4 and my main reasons is that I think sony next time round will benefit from the Blu-ray player and I know the 720 is rumoured to have one aswell but doesn't that mean that they have to pay Sony for using them and every game purchased on the new 720 is going to be Blu-ray if you consider that rumour to be true then some extra money goes to sony for every 720 game sold aswell. Could work out very well for sony but could also mean cheaper games for PS and more expensive games for the 720. Also Microsoft from what I have heard seems to be going to the media hub for everyday family use and focusing more on that and having a gaming platform based on top of it instead of the impression im getting from sony with a more traditional gaming machine with enhanced media uses.

Not considering either in the slightest.

Considering I have all systems by Sony probably i'll get the PS4 first and a year or so later the Next-Xbox.. However its difficult to pick a system atm since the rumours change on a daily basis.

Better wait for E3 2013 where I believe both SONY/MS will announce their new consoles & launch titles...

Surprisingly the WiiU at this rate.
#7 Posted by CDUB316 (6589 posts) -

i'll end up getting both just as I always do....but as for which one first that has yet to be determined

rumors are rumors and i could care less about them....it's up to MS and Sony to wow me at E3

their press conferences will be the determining factor

Xbox 720

don't really know much about the upcoming systems but mostly likely stick with Sony for now. Not a Wii u though, that's for sure...
#10 Posted by iiSnopel (7 posts) -
I've had PS1, PS2, Xbox, Xbox360 and Wii. I've pretty much experienced the differences in gaming between them... well at least all that I've got... that may not be much... eep. As for the next generation of gaming... I feel as if I'm leaning towards Sony. I dunno. Xbox360's exclusives seem to be the majority of FPS games, rather than Sony having exclusive platformers, fighters and the mix. My three favourite genres are 1on1 Fighting (Tekken Tag 2 kicks ass), WRPGs (like Skyrim and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning), and Platforming (Sonic Generations was fantastic. I don't care what you say.) Games like Ratchet and Clank, Jak, even some installments of Tekken always seem to satisfy me. But Xbox360 gets things like Gears of War, Halo and other dark types of games like that. I could be wrong but that's the most I have seen. And for this reason the PS4 is climbing to my favour. Only thing I'll miss is Forza. Forza MS 4 stomped all over Gran Turismo 5 in all aspects. And Forza is definitely one of my favourite racers of all time. TL;DR: Xbox includes exclusives a little outside my preference, whereas Playstation has exclusives in which I say "God I wish I had a PS3..."

Im currently decided to get Wii U eventually. I will have to wait what the other ones shall have up their sleeve. Im particularly waiting for some killer apps, but if MS shall decide to make kinectbox with only new installments of halogearsforza as exclusive content, count me out.

#12 Posted by Everiez (1946 posts) -

PS4. There are 3rd party exclusive I don't want to miss out. I don't give a damn about current 1st party exclusive and PS4's graphical capability, I've a PC for that.

#13 Posted by Ly_the_Fairy (8541 posts) -

The only one I think I actually want to own is a 3DS.

With what little interest I have in all the other systems I'd rank them in this order

Wii U > 720 > PS Vita > PS4

Only thing that is certain is I'll be PC gaming all next generation.

Staying with PC, then buy whichever one that has the best exclusives towards the end of the next console generation.
#18 Posted by PAL360 (27303 posts) -

Probably the next Xbox, but E3 will help me decide.

#19 Posted by l34052 (3325 posts) -

Im looking forward to the ps4 more than X720, ive just had more fun with sony games over the years although i love the Forza series and PGR which MS for some reason decided to stop making anymore despite them being hugely popular.

Of course all this may change once we know more about the machines but currently im looking at the ps4.

I'll just get both. Why limit yourself?
#22 Posted by Borrizee (428 posts) -
Ps4. I'm not a one console player but I love ps the most. We have ps3,3ds and xbox360 at home. Ps4 is more my console then any other.

I'm a Halo addict so I'll eventually pick up the 720, though probably not at launch.
#24 Posted by IAmNot_fun (3336 posts) -
Rumours? I find rumours hardly worth my attention so i don't know.
#25 Posted by ultraking (6904 posts) -
Don't really care about rumors. Ill just go with the console that has the most exclusives I like. And that would be Playstation 4

Mostly the ones that only finalstar likes, of course.
#31 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -
I don't listen to rumors, so I have no clue what rumors are going around atm. But regardless or rumors. Based off this gen, the PS4 is my only option and even that I am not so sure is am option yet.

Well then maybe I'll get it at launch :P. I actually wish MS had saved Halo 4 for xbox 720. It's a good game but doesn't change much. New hardware might have given them more freedom to really experiment with the formula.
#33 Posted by marinevetstl (162 posts) -
I bought a Wii U. I have owned the ps, ps2, ps3. Xbox and Xbox 360. I see these systems based along the line of mini computers that happen to play video games. I saw halo 4, what I thought was just a remake of Metroid Prime.

Staying with PC, until a year after launch of new consoles. Then, I'll see what the reliability and games look like.
#36 Posted by fernandmondego_ (3170 posts) -
I bought a Wii U.marinevetstl
He said "next gen".

[QUOTE="marinevetstl"]I bought a Wii U.fernandmondego_

Which Wii U technically is.
#38 Posted by Master_ShakeXXX (13361 posts) -

Wasn't the Wii U rumored to be 19x more powerful than a PS3?

Believing rumors = bad.

#39 Posted by ebrezzy1 (1427 posts) -

I voted on xbox 720

they look to have a clear direction for what there doing and implementing it the best

and if its based on rumors the xbox sounds the most interesting and is said to be the most powerful

#40 Posted by Miketheman83 (3156 posts) -
Sony fans will by the next PlayStation no matter what it offers. I think they proved that with the ps3. Sony fans are worse than Apple fans.

That. Is next gen. It is and upgrade from the Wii.

#45 Posted by marinevetstl (162 posts) -
Ps3 super slim cant be, it is still a Ps3.

It's not, it's a PS3 Super Slim. It just happens to play PS3 games but it's new hardware.

None. Only Next Gen console I might buy is Wii U and right now I'm not even sold.

Haha that is actually pretty funny.
#49 Posted by slipknot0129 (5520 posts) -

I'd buy 720 because its supposed to be more powerful than todays computers.

#50 Posted by Sagem28 (10498 posts) -

I'll wait for the facts.

I'm not gonna buy either at launch though, I like to wait things out a bit.
