Are you ready for the next-generation of video game consoles?

With next generation consoles expected to hit store shelves at the end of this year or early next year, the game release schedule for current generation consoles is rather slim right now.

I am ready for them to be released, but I'm not ready to upgrade. As an early adopter I always regret my purchases, but for some reason I never learn from my mistake. I avoided the Vita until now and I'm even starting to want to purchase that. I can't contain myself.

I am going to do my best to hold off until a price drop. I will succeed this time and hopefully I won't be tempted. I love this generation so much and with everthing that the PS3 is offering me I am sure I can still get around a year or 2 more out of the system.

Now that I have just wrote that... I realise the chances of lasting 2 years is pretty slim :'-(

I'm in the same boat. I bought every console this gen right out of the gate and it simply wasn't worth it, yet I find myself sitting here becoming excited for the next crop of consoles even though I probably have a backlog of games currently that will take me 2 years to get through.

I think price and backwards compatibility are what will entice me to jump on board sooner rather than later. If the next consoles are priced reasonable (around the $400 mark) and I'm able to play my existing titles, I'll probably bite and replace my current consoles early. Or at least take a chance on one of them and then maybe hold off on the other for a bit to make sure the hardware is sound.

I'm ready to see the next gen and feel the excitement. The time of my purchases following launch is yet to be determined.

I feel that early adoption is much like everything else; it depends. Adopting an Xbox 360 late in this cycle was a much better decision than at launch because of the unfortunate RROD. Conversely, my original 60 gig PS3 - expanded to 320 gig - offers me full backward compatibility and extra USB ports not included in newer models. Plus, it just looks classier.

In sum, I'm glad I bought my PS3 early and my Xbox 360 Slim late. It's given me the best of both worlds.

Oh look...another illiterate PC fanboy. FYI, the article title shouldn't be that hard to comprehend ; there was only 1 word with more than 3 syllables.

@Sp1d3ynut
haha pc fanboy hah the first time someone call me that oh well, this new consoles are basically same as a modern pc without all the os bullshit, so yeah i could say i have a next gen console already hehe u mad bro!

Financially? Yes I am ready.

But do I want them this year? Nope.

I'm going to be busy playing GTA V the whole second half of this year. PS4 will wait for 2014 for me so I hope they don't release until January 2014 at the earliest. Or whatever release earlier so i can save a ton of money.

@rollface GTX 680 is already pretty old and will be replaced pretty soon

Honestly? Not really. I'm happy with the current gen for the most part. But maybe I'll change my tune once we see what Sony has to offer on Feb 20.

I feel the same, I was getting excited till the used game blocking thing and the high chance games will cost even more. At this point i'm feeling like last gen may really be my last gen. I'll just play PC games.
