Gamespot recommends that. Worst consoles launch ever ? PC FTW ?

I have the PS4 preordered for launch on amazon but I think I will be skipping them til Destiny (if it does not come to PC) or KH 3 and FFXV. There are too many games for PS3 i still need to play. I swear if the PS4 was backwards compatible it would have been great to buy it at launch.
They say that, but they have access to all the consoles themselves... early even. If I had a PS4 and Xbox One debug unit at my job, I may not be preaching that people should rush out and buy consoles either.
Having said that, I like to have an informed opinion about the merits of whatever hardware I can afford. I set a budget strategy in June for saving enough money to buy the consoles on day one, and I am really excited about getting them both delivered to me with Amazon... no more waiting in lines for me. First time I haven't sat out in the cold on launch day for a new console. Amazon Prime... gotta love it. Anyhow, while others speculate about features etc., I will be able to base my comments off of actual experiences, which means a lot to me. And as somebody who is going to get both new platforms, I don't feel a insecurity regarding brand loyalty as suggested by some of the comments I've seen on this forum. So yeah, good times. Gonna be a hell of a Thanksgiving.
As far as ps4/xbone is concerned, im definitely waiting till next summer. By then, Titanfall will be out. Until then, buying one of these consoles day 1 is a horrible waste of time. I will stick with 360/ps3 till then and im picking up a WiiU this weekend. Im perfectly happy with this combo.
For better or worse, I am all in on PS4 at launch. I already have it paid in full on Amazon, and there is really nothing else I would want to buy on Amazon with that credit. Well, Wii U, but it's not directly available on Amazon.
With the X1, however, I will definitely be holding off.
It's not looking good though...
Is the door open for the future? Of course. Is there any reason to get a PS4 this year? Absolutely not.
I have many games i have yet to play from this gen. Sony keeps putting out exclusives on PS3 and I can easily see myself not getting a PS4 until the PS4 slim is out and games start entering greatest hits territory.
My PS3 isn't going anywhere any time soon.
I'm waiting at least a year, I can play the majority of the next gen titles that interest me on my PS3, PS4's range of excluives seem pretty poor so far and while Xbox One's range of exclusives seem decent, I'd suspect it will be heavily frontloaded. That said, I'm still undecided on which console to get, I'd guess that this time next year I'll take a look at what games are available on each console, as well as the upcoming releases then make my decision. I also suspect both consoles may have had price drops by then.
No way jose. I have never bought a console a launch, so that in and of itself is got me excited to get the PS4 at midnight and play till will hours in the morning.
I stated long ago, before the launch date was even announced that I know launch lines ups and the amount of games available would be thin, just like all console launches, but I have 4 other gaming platforms to play games on. PS4 will be my indulgence. MmMmMmm soooo good.
