I'm waiting to get a PS4 until the next Gran Turismo game comes out. That's not to say that's the ONLY game I'll play on it, it's based on the assumption that there will be several others that interest me and there will continue to be more games in the future that I'll want. I'd never but a console if there truly was only one game on it that I wanted to play.

I'm so tired of this crap. Sequel after sequel after sequel and now we're even doubling the number of sequels!!! And I'm supposed to pay $400 or $500 to play this milked-to-death rubbish.

They seem dumb to me. The publicity people are hyping the game years before release and they're worried about reviews coming out too early. When I see a company making sure that no reviews are published before launch it just makes me think they've got zero confidence in their own product - so why should I have sixty bucks worth of confidence in it?

Gran Turismo 6 and...and...well less than 5 anyway. I've got Ni No Kuni, The Last of Us and Batman Arkham Origins under the Christmas tree though.

My TV is in a big entertainment center and I use a couple of its shelves for games.

I usually buy new once they've hit the bargain bin. If they're still asking $40 a year after release I'll get a used copy for $15 - $20. I'd say maybe 80% of my games were purchased new.

Gets computer with a pretty nice Nvidia graphics card...plays game that would run just fine on a $50 CPU's integrated graphics.

Although it makes sense, in theory, that if used games sales didn't exist the developers would make more money and we'd get more and better games because of it, in reality I very much doubt that you'd see any difference. A lot of the extra money they made would probably just go into additional advertising and the rest...we'll you'd probably find out there wasn't much more.

With almost every game being a sequel these days, who needs reviews? If you liked the previous games in the franchise get the new one, if you didn't, don't.

I'm perfectly content to wait on buying a PS4 as there aren't any next gen games on either console that interest me right now. I've also got a PC so I've been looking at next gen graphics for quite some time now.
