Are early adopters regretting their decision to go Next-Gen

Now the excitement has died down, and launch fever is nothing but a distant memory, how happy are next-gen owners with their product? I’ve gone on record as saying that I’m pleased I didn’t go next-gen from the off and nothing has happened in the meantime to make me change my mind.

Nope no regrets here, bought the system for whats to come not whats was available at launch

truefan11578d ago

I don't see why an XB1 gamer would, I definitely haven't. Even when I'm not playing games, I'm using the XB1 for something, now its like my laptop because I use google glass.

georgeenoob1578d ago (Edited 1578d ago )


With X1 there's plenty of launch titles such as Ryse, DR3, KI, and Forza 5. PS4, however is just Killzone. I really don't understand why someone would buy a PS4 at the moment (unless you love indies).

Then in a month and a half is Titanfall, which I know will keep me busy for a year or two until the next one comes out. 2014 and 2015 is going to be amazing for X1. We got Quantum Break, Halo, Gears, Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark, Fable, D4. What more can you ask for?

i wanted to get a X1 at launch, but im actually happy i waited, got a wii u for xmas so more then happy playing mario 3d world and windwaker until the heavy hitters come out on X1, probably wont pick the console up till halo 5 comes out.

as it stands now theres nothing on X1 or PS4 that really interests me.

hollabox1578d ago (Edited 1578d ago )

Yeah I'm loving my XB1, purchased 6 digital/physical games so far with only 1 game I regret. I should have waited on the PS4, I picked up Need for Speed and Madden 25, both average games with visual marginally better than last generation. All in all I'm satisfied, I just wish both consoles would offer similar features regarding streaming, 3D playback last gen offered.

Well I regret buying the x1 I'm considering trading it in for cash. I just can't stand the business running it and it's lack of focus for games. I haven't switched it on this year yet.
Ps4 on the other hand has been hardly a day goes by its not on at some point. People saying its only got kill zone like multiplats don't exist? With all the free games Sony has given me also, what has xbox given you since launch? And don't say xbox has them too because I've got bf4 on both and I. Gave it back on xbox within a few days. There is not a single multiplatform that performs better on x1 and the exclusives are poor 360 hang overs I haven't enjoyed. Except ryse which I actually disagreed with the majority and thought it was great. And xbox fitness? That's great for soccer moms with not much to do, but I'm a body builder so not much use to me.

I buy consoles to enjoy games on with no fuss, so if you want the best experience of the game on a console ps4 is the obvious choice

awesomeisjayell1578d ago

Loving my X1 busy playing Forza 5,KI,Dead Rising 3,Tomb Raider DE,Fifa 14,Battlefield 4,NBA 2k14,and Halo:Spartan Assault now who said next gen doesn't have games? yea right lol feel sorry for the PS4 early adopters lol

quaneylfc1578d ago

I bought both on launch (like a nerd) and i havent really been playing on my ps4 so i regret buying that, the only games that interest me on it are the order and infamous. none of my friends have ps4s so i might just get rid of it, it goes to show you how unimportant resolution is...

hollabox1578d ago

@quaneylfc I'm with you on the PS4, its been collecting dust even before I picked up the XB1 a day after Christmas. Thought about putting it up on Ebay but figured I would just end up buying it again ounce Sony 1st party software start rolling out. I'm not even going to get into all the error codes, short battery life, PSN issues I've experienced.

I think this generation the way I buy games will be reversed. None MP multiplatform games the PS4 or PC, while buying multi player and MS 1st party exclusive or delayed exclusive on the XB1.

Locknuts1578d ago

Yeah the X1 looks good. Now that it has gears it's a no brainer.

The only people with regrets are those who were unaware of what they were getting into. I knew what I was getting with my PS4 and don't regret my purchase. I don't play it every day (or in the past 2 weeks), but I'm still happy to have it and can't wait to play things like Outlast on it next month.

Fluke_Skywalker1578d ago

I'm the same, I don't regret it at all, I knew exactly what I was getting into.
I am of course completely bored of the launch games that I have now, but I don't regret it one bit.
The games will come along soon enough, and until then I still have my PS3.

JsonHenry1578d ago

Exactly. The only people that regret at those that thought the launch games would keep them happier longer than they did.

I've been enjoying the PS4 here and there. The PSN games keep it interesting more than anything right now I feel. Don't Starve, even though I own in on my PC through STEAM as well, is very addictive. The PSN music streaming service is very well done too. Probably one of the most overlooked apps on the PS4.

Joey_Leone1578d ago (Edited 1578d ago )

I agree(except the Music part), but its kinda lame at the moment because there's no other option to listen to music, Sony said they would update the software to support mp3 playback, but when? There's no way i am paying $5-10 a month to listen to music i already payed for.

andrewsqual1578d ago

I didn't regret buying a PS2 in December 2000 and buying only 2 games for it before Oct 2001. I was too busy playing what the PS1 had left to offer like Syphon Filter 3. The same thing applies here (btw you might say the PS2 had the most incredible game library over the following 6 years, just maybe though, don't take my word for it).

Irishguy951578d ago

Infamous and Titanfall are the true beginning of the X1 and Ps4 as far as i'm concerned. Do people who buy a NG console in March still count as early adopters? Either way they all got the same deal. Shortly after Infamous and TF, Witcher 3 is coming out.

I'm 100% sure these 3 games will be some of my favorites for years to come.

HurtfulTimez1578d ago

Agreed I'm loving my ps4, although my ps3 did get shown a lot of love in December due to gt6 but now I'm bk on ps4 and loving every min of it except for the lack of mp3 support

Automatic791578d ago

No Regrets on my Xbox one purchase. Completed RYSE and enjoying the multiplayer, DeadRising 3 was fun and so is Forza Motorsport 5. Completed Call of Duty and enjoying the multiplayer. Currently finishing up Battlefield and Assassins Creed. Still have not had a chance to embrace killer Instinct, Crimson Dragon, Max and the Cursed brotherhood and a few others.

Note: Can't wait for Titanfall.

Not one bit got plenty to play on PS4 and the back catalog of PS+ is keeping me very busy. Can't get enough of Shadowfalls Multiplayer.

Software_Lover1578d ago

You have a large backlog of ps+ ps4 games?

SmielmaN1578d ago

I'm thinking he has the same set up I would have. My slim PS3 next to my PS4. So when I'm not playing PS4 (almost 50 hrs in Assassins creed) I'm replaying bioshock (free this month) and DMC (which I never got around to picking up when it came out, also free this month) on the PS3.

Boom, no regrets at all here. The PS4 and PS3 keep me plenty busy. Can't wait for infamous, diablo, and South Park (ps3, wife and are are MASSIVE fans).
