The possibility exists. I probably won't get it immediately, though. It's launch titles are fairly weak, most of them being on other systems for cheaper prices.

Not at all. I will never use the Camera kinect thing. The specs arn't as good as the PS4. I prefer the look of the PS4 and it can't stand up right.

Yes, day one. Dead Rising 3, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and NBA Live 14 for now.

Maybe someday. I've decided to go with PS4 first but as the feature-sets of these consoles become fully realized throughout their lifecycles I will always have an eye open and may switch over. Time will tell.

When they drop the Kinect I will for sure. Forza 5 would be definite and I'm also liking the looks of Dead Rising 3. I would consider Ryse as it's a different kind of game but won't make a move until Microsoft drops that Kinect.

I will eventually buy an Xbox one.Since I have gotten all consoles of each generation. 4th SNES & Sega Genesis, 5th Playstation & Nintendo 64, 6th Playstation 2, Xbox, & Nintendo Gamecube Gamecube, 7th Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii. 8Th Playstation 4 and Nintendo Wii U and to keep the tradition going I will buy Xbox One. I try to have all of the console of each videogame era to be able to enjoy the games on each. Alas these are the consoles I still have others like the TG 16 and Sega Saturn etc have been sold. Sigh I try not to sell consoles and game. but sometimes life gets in the way.

So Yep I will eventually buy Xbox one. I have spend a ton of money on Playstation 4. So Xbox one will be next as I don't have the cash to get both at launch. But I will get around to Xbox one. Since eventually Halo 5 and Gears of War 5 will be released on Xbox one. Right now I kinda like the idea of Killer instinct for Xbox one. Wish it was a proper retail release on disc instead of the "Free to play" Demo. That is just lame. If a proper version of Killer Instinct was available at launch. It would be more inspiring. But maybe but the time I get the $500.00 together. They will have decided on a proper retail release for Killer instinct. Instead it is just a afterthought.

Maybe MS will have learned that the Kinect V2 Camera has failed with Core & hard core gamers and will have a bundle without it. Even though MS has stated that it will be bundled with each Xbox one. But thus far has prove useless for games. Except for Dance Central which MS could offer a bundle with that game for the Casuals.

So For now I shall wait and see how all of this Xbox one stuff pans out. But eventually i will buy an Xbox one .

Although my heart says PS4, with the large amount of friends who I game online with going for the Xbox One it would be silly for me to not follow suit.

It isn't a case of I really don't like the One, it's a case of more recently my PS3 has gained more use over my Xbox. Coupled with the One's announcement issues I thought "you know what? I'm going to get the PS4 first"

Looking forward to next-gen regardless of console choice anyhoo.

Probably at some point after launch once they release the new Halo but otherwise, PS4 is the only actual gaming platform left these days.

Yep. I pre-ordered mine the day it was announced. Just had to have that Day One Edition.

Although I have a next gen system ready to go in November, nothing available for either system compels me to buy either of them. I just lack the excitement because, as someone said, the current systems will still be supported for some time. Batman, South Park, etc.., are just a few titles which will keep me motivated with the current systems.

I am undecided as to which console to get so placed a pre order for both consoles ages ago, so am guaranteed either at launch. Have got Xbox 360 and PS3 at the moment and have enjoyed games on both. Have heard specs may be better on PS4 but like the idea of dedicated servers for all Xbox One games.

Only game I am interested in on PS4 at the moment is Infamous Second Son which is not out until March 2014. I like the look of Dead Rising 3 and I know Forza 5 will be amazing. As I love Fifa 14 I am guaranteed it with a day one edition console.

Also love Need for Speed games. I do like PS plus on PS3 but apart from Driveclub, I'm worried the only free games we will get are the Indys which I would never play.

Where is Uncharted 4 or the new God of War games?

Am I better off getting Xbox One instead?

Yes, I'm getting it at launch and cant wait! This gen has become stale now and has gone on for too long, Xbox One is the only true next gen console out there, it has great new features and the best exclusive games, not long to go now either!

I have X360 but I don't think I would buy Xbone anytime near the release.

Yeah, got them both just because. Might as well while I have the extra money. Not totally stoked about the launch titles though. Specially since watchdogs got bumped. Dead rising should quell my thirst for a next gen title till the better ones launch cough *Titanfall .

I'll buy it but not now at lunch , i'll get it around summer 2014 or maybe 2015

you see i still have many awesome games to play on xbox 360 ,and destiny and Dark souls 2 are coming to xbox 360 too so i won't buy a next gen console any time soon . i'll buy them when there are not too many games on xbox 360 to play and xbox one price drops

I'll give it six months before I jump in and buy an Xbox One, as I think by then all the bugs will have been identified and most issues sorted plus I think most of the game niggles will have been sorted to. I also have a shed load of games still to play on both the 360 and PS3

@iampenguin: lol you prefer the look of the ps4 lol i'll let that slide but your stupidity is funny. simply because a look of a console shouldn't matter this isn't a runway show LMFAO, anyways if you've got the xbox 360, I don't see why you'd switch over especially now.... "playstation" is JUST getting party chat.... they have a terrible UI and overall just for gaming, sorry but I rather own something that can do multiple things also multitask. Now the Kinect. well you don't wanna own a awesome 1080p camera that's has voice recognition and body movement down to the T then by all means lol go to playstation where they copied Nintendo's motion controller... either way I find it hilarious how people don't give things a try they haven't even experienced for themselves yet... but ohhhh welllll. stay ignorant :)

While I am a bit reserved in my excitement for either next gen system, I pre-ordered a day one edition console along with Ryse, Dead Rising 3, and Forza 5. They show some promise.
