I'm buying a PS4 but i'm still playing MY PS3 with my buddies who aren't gonna get it on launch.So just swapping not a problem for me.

This pix is gold xD.

DITTO. I'm getting a PS4, but my PS3 is still in tip top shape, and I'll be playing GTA V, Beyond Two Souls, Dark Souls 2 etc etc well into the PS4 release.
morganfell  +   914d ago
PS4s (2) all the way while jamming on my PS3s and Vita.
BattleAxe  +   914d ago
I'm sticking with my PS3, and will carry on the next generation while using my PC. This way I'll be playing most of the big games coming out like:

- Titanfall (PC)
- GTA5 (PS3)
- Watchdogs (PC)
- Destiny (PS3)
- The Division (PC)
- Splinter Cell: Blacklist (PC)
- CoD: Ghosts (PC)
- BF4 (PC)
- Beyond Two Souls (PS3)
- Battlefield 4 (PC)
- Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag (PC)
- Rainbow Six: Patriots (PC)
- Batman Arkham Origins (PC)
- Agent (PS3????)

Yeah, to be honest, I'm thinking pretty hard about keeping my PS3/360 and upgrading my PC for the moment. My older brother will probably get the WiiU so I'm good when I visit him.

I don't see any day one wows on either console for me at this point, Titanfall looks great, but those mechs remind me too much of the grizzlies in Starhawk and Shadowfall looks beyond great, but they could have went a much better way than what is currently going on in the Killzone universe in Shadow Fall (Shadow fall spoiler after this point, plus I know that TitanFall is on PC as well.)

@ BattleAxe

The Division is only coming out for PS4 and Xbox One
BattleAxe  +   913d ago

My mistake, you are correct. I have a feeling it will come to PC at some point though, since it wouldn't take too much effort to port this game, but who knows...

"So this year I'm voting for the old guard with my wallet. I'm getting that second PS3 and the months of guaranteed delight it comes bundled with."

I am also getting a 2nd PS3 for my brother as a birthday gift.

But PS4 will be day one for me because I have so much faith on it.

I know it when I see it.
starchild  +   913d ago
The Division is almost certainly coming to PC. A reportedly reliable source that leaked the existence of The Crew well in advance of its announcement also claims that The Division will be coming to PC.

In any case, I have almost no doubt that it will come to the PC.

DigitalRaptor  +   914d ago
Haha. Great picture. I'm one of the lucky ones.

I still see myself playing PS3 more though. Not at first of course, but I have far more games to get through on that than I plan on buying on PS4 in the first couple of months.

I still have so many games on my backlog to play, so my PS3 isn't going anywhere anytime soon. If anyone missed the boat on PS3 or 360 or Wii, now would be the time to pick them up. Huge back catalog of great games on all three.

I typically only buy three or four brand-new games at full price per year. All my other purchases are usually playing catch-up with all the stuff I missed. PS4 will be my first at-launch console since the SEGA Saturn. Ooof, I feel old.

Anon1974  +   913d ago
I'm on the fence with getting a PS4 right away. It launches close to Christmas and it's hard to justify spending $400+ on myself while there's other people to buy gifts for.

That being said, I finally traded in my old launch 360 so I've got $150 of store credit from it and accessories that I don't have earmarked for anything. I figured might as well trade it in now while I can still get something for it because I imagine once the new consoles are out they won't be worth anything for trade. I hadn't touched it for a couple of years and there's certainly nothing on the horizon that seemed to warrant holding onto it for me. Maybe I'll throw that towards a PS4 right after Christmas is done.
Sci0n  +   913d ago
woooo I almost missed my PS4 preorder. I went to gamestop as they was closing the bars on the door last night and was there last customer. The clerk was like you're lucky because after tonight we can't take anymore preorders, it was a close call but I got my launch PS4 console solidified.

bligmerk  +   913d ago
You do know there is a difference in the preorders? Launch Day preorders were sold out within a few days. The preorders since then are "launch window" preorders, which can extend into January 2014, worst case. There are going to be shortages.
Sci0n  +   913d ago
@Bligmerk you are wrong I spoke to the manager as I was making my Preorder purchase and he said the stores preorders they take have been monitored and based off how much stock they will have available and they guaranteed a day one console. Sony allowed gamestop and other retailers to open the flood gates on taking more preorders months ago because they increased the launch stock. Now as far as gamestop goes they are getting a little dry with the available launch Preorder stock they will have available. The manager confirmed this is for day one launch and anything after that day would require a waiting list nor could they guarantee a launch day console unless Sony increases the stock and gives them the ok to open more preorders.
GraveLord  +   914d ago
It's a shame how Driveclub is being dismissed so easily. I think once the game is actually shown off people will change their minds on it.

I completely get where the author is coming from but I am so tired of this generation. The slow in-game XMB and the sub-1080p resolutions are hard to ignore for me. I'd rather play multiplats on PS4 in full 1080p at a smooth frame-rate.

If I was a GT fan I'd probably be skipping PS4 too, but I'm not.

considering the amount of solid racing games on the market that run at 60fps, i don't see why people should have to settle for one that runs at 30fps. if they can get it to 60fps, though, that'll certain help its cause.

GraveLord  +   914d ago
Come one man. Yes, FPS IS important but to pass on game just because of that isn't fair to the developers or yourself.

The devs have said that its possible they'll implement FPS and with the recent delay from launc title to "launch window" you may get your wish. Just don't hold your breath.
Hicken  +   913d ago
Considering fps isn't the end all, be all when it comes to a great racing game, I don't see why people keep bringing it up as the only thing that counts.
wishingW3L  +   913d ago
if they can't even reach 60 frames on a next-gen racing game then it would only be logical to be extremely skeptical about its quality. Especially when we have 1080p/60fps GT6 on PS3 and this point is mentioned by the author of this article too.
_FantasmA_  +   913d ago
I think Driveclub looks good let the hater hate, the rest of us are going to play.

My ps3&ps4 will both be connected to my TV which will be pretty awesome. I replaced my ps1 with ps2 and replaced my ps2 with a 60gb ps3, but that tradition will be broken as I don't see my ps3 going anywhere for a long time.

PS4 as soon as I can get it.

Scatpants  +   913d ago
Yep, PS4 at launch. Xbox1 with tax return. The only good games exclusive to Xbone are Dead Rising, Below and Titanfall, and they should all be out around that time.
ovnipc  +   914d ago
I have 90% of 360 games why spend money on a ps3 or ps4. The only one looks good its x1, have some interesting games. I have all games ps3 has on the 360.

elda  +   913d ago
I was thinking the same thing.
Cyanide85  +   913d ago
What people don't realize is that and I'm saying IF the PS4 gets to be the biggest selling console (no way to know before they are released) all of the X1 games they say is exclusive will be released on the PS4.

And I say this because games like Titanfall which everyone is raving on about it is a X1 exclusive but not forever, if the PS4 outsells X1 Titanfall along with other "exclusive" titles you can be damn sure they will be released on the PS4 in maybe 1-2 years.

You see when MS says they are exclusives that is what I would call truth but with modification, they aren't lying but they aren't telling you the whole truth either.

And this is my opinion of what I think will happen in a few years time IF the PS4 outsells X1.
GraveLord  +   914d ago
Just say Xbox One games appeal to you the most. No need for flat out lies and trolling.

Sentence 1 : Very confusing logic

Sentence 2 : Confusing wording, but just an opinion

Sentence 3 : Either a lie or you are very misinformed

the WiiU is a given but for the next to I am leaning heavy towards the Xbox One. But I still won't pick it up at launch. There are still many games to play for the ps3 and 360 to just jump right into the next gen consoles.

And as good as the launch line up looks for both systems it still pretty small. I also want to wait until their library gets a little bigger.

So rather than buying a new console that plays better games he's going to buy an additional console to one he already has that will only play old games and support for will slowly dry up...Smart.

He is lucky his fat lasts that long, I got a PS3 day one, one of the first ones Gamestop had, and when COD BO2 came out and I played it on it it finally gave out, it was a hard time, but after a few goodbyes, I put in neatly into my broken console stash, then bought a PS3 slim (not super slim), probably one of the best consoles I have ever had, I can't wait for PS4...
cunnilumpkin  +   913d ago
I'll just be keeping my ps3 and 360 and doing all my next gen gaming on pc like I have been for the last 5 years

ps4 and xbox 1 have literally nothing to offer me that I cannot get with better graphics/higher resolutions and better performance on my pc

all the games I want from both ps4 and xbox1 are on pc besides killzone SF and I can wait on that

killzone has always been a good game, I loved 2 and 3, but they were not great games, just good, and SF looks to be about the same

launch titles and usually the first full year of a consoles games usually suck

maybe in 2014-2015 when we see if either console will even be successful enough to garner tons of 3rd party support, then I will get on when there are a bunch of quality titles for it

until then, pc for 95% of my gaming, and ps3/360 for old school, sub-hd, retro gaming

Still have a lot of games for my PS3/360 so defiantly holding on to those.

So may games so little time
