Intent To Buy: What systems are you planning on picking up? (88 votes)

PlayStation 4 72%
Xbox One 25%
Wii U 40%
PlayStation Vita 25%
Nintendo 3DS 25%
PC 35%

With the next generation of gaming now fully underway, I guess the question is, what systems are you planning on picking up this time around? Or which ones do you already own?

Me, I already own a Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and Wii U, and will be picking up a PlayStation 4 some time next year. I hope to use PlayStation 4 for multiplats and Sony's great first party games, the Vita for indie games and the odd Japanese game that it gets, the 3DS for its massive mine of exclusives, and the Wii U for its HD Nntendo lineup along with the odd third party game like Bayonetta or Monster Hunter.

I think this will cover mostly everything this coming generation. I will miss out on some high end PC exclusives, so I hope to build a decent rig some time in the future; the Xbox One, well, as much as I want Dead Rising and Titanfall, I'm not willing to spend $500 for just two games (as none of its other exclusives interest me, and the rest of its lineup is shared with some other system that I do own or will own).

How about you all?

Also, the poll is multiple answers, so you can click every single system you intend on owning this time around.

Nothing in the near future

PS4, Wii U, and PC. I don't want an Xbone when I can get a more powerful system, the steambox, for the same price.

I already own all of the above. I may upgrade my PC next year though. i7 3770k @ 4.2 and a GTX 690 is what I have now. It's not the best with the latest games running at 2560x1440.

Already have a gaming PC.

Out of those next-gen consoles, the PS4 is the only one I'm eyeing at for purchase sometime next year.

i own a wii u.

i still don't know when/if I'll grab a ps4 or xb1, but I know I will grab one/both of them eventually.

my priority at the moment is to increase my storage and memory capacity. then cpu. then finally gpu. hope to be done before mid-2014.

I'd forgive @charizard1605 for such crimes.

Yes, I think my conscience will somehow survive this transgression

Nintendo 3DS is the only one that's a for sure buy. The Wii U has a few games that are catching my interest but not enough yet and the PS4 & XONE have nothing of interest besides the multiplat Mirror's Edge 2, so probably end up getting at least one of the two or a better PC. I have mild interest in the Vita but looking at the library seems the interest is mostly novelty.

#16 Edited by nintendoboy16 (25052 posts) -

Right now, my own 3DS (been playing my brothers) and a Wii U.

All that interests me out of PS4 is Infamous: Second Son.

#17 Posted by mems_1224 (44748 posts) -

Everything except the vita. Still not sure what next gen console to get first.

#18 Posted by Boddicker (1932 posts) -

I plan to buy a proper gaming desktop, a WiiU and a 3DS by late 2014. By then, i'll have enough money saved up to do so, obviously also saving up to have a nice collection of games ready to go.

Just a little more time..

#23 Edited by Joedgabe (4987 posts) -

Wii U for the best first party in the industry

PS4 for access to all the great 3rd party games it will get

3DS for access to the best first party and 3rd party in the handheld space

Everything except a PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

#31 Posted by whiskeystrike (12068 posts) -

Have it all but the HD twins. I'll nab one when the time is right, probably in another year or two.

BAZINGA!!!

I actually want a Xbone but I just don't know if I can put up with the always online thing and paying for online play.

Hey nini.

The always online thing is gone. Paying for online though? That's still there :(

I sold my PS3 to get the $100 gift card at Best Buy. Now I own 3ds XL, Vita, Wii U, and a mid level gaming laptop that I use mainly for Starcraft 2, XCOM, and Counter Strike. I will most likely get a PS4 once there are some awesome games out (which is up in the air right now considering I'm not that excited for MGS 5). I wouldn't mind getting an X1 if there are great games on it. Titanfall doesn't look that bad and it might even be better than PC. So we'll see.

PlayStation 4 only

couldnt care less about the xbox one or the wiiu

#36 Posted by osirisx3 (1572 posts) -

i will be going back into pc for now as ps and xbox both have meh lines ups for a good while. i end up liking console exclusives more but i like pc better for online.

#37 Posted by osan0 (12373 posts) -

Meanwhile you can play online for free on Wii U. Thank you Nintendo. :)

#39 Posted by cain006 (8625 posts) -

All I have is my PC and 3DS of those. PS4 and Xbox one, don't want anything on either of them and don't want to spend the money right now. Wii U I want a couple games but between the PS3 I just got and Pokemon X I'm busy enough with video games.

#43 Posted by trugs26 (4642 posts) -

There is no excuse for the 3DS being that low. Everyone here should have one by now.

I'm more interested in the Wii U's numbers, honestly.

PS4 around Spring. I'd get a WiiU when they're under $150.

That is oddly high given the general reception of the Wii U. I guess a lot of people care about Nintendo, and their criticism stems from their concern on Nintendo's direction (which is often against what we expect). The alternative is a vocal minority of hate.

i already have a gaming pc. as for which next gen console imma get... its gonna be the PS4th

#49 Edited by farrell2k (4601 posts) -

I plan on spending around $300 to upgrade my PC with an FX-6300, 8gb ram, and HD7850 that will surpass the XB1 in specs as a compliment to my WiiU. I only play on playing games at 1600x900 so that should do it for the foreseeable future.

#50 Edited by babycakin (1400 posts) -

My gaming PC completely died so buying a gaming laptop in January. Buying a Wii U this Christmas, already own a 3DS and Playstation 4 most likely in March. Don't care for the X Bone but Titanfall looks very interesting.
