The Mirror conducted a poll to find out which console gamers are intending to buy next, which produced some interesting results.
I am planning on getting PS4 Pro, PSVR and NX if, there is a serious Metroid game at launch. Scorpio shouldn't even be on that list since it doesn't have "an upcoming release". That console is more than a year away. Interesting that the Xbox one S is not even on the list as it is the current offering from Microsoft.
PS4Pro for me, have no intersest in the scorpio what so ever, as my PC is currently better spec'd, the PS4P and PC will have me covered untill the PS5 drops in the next 3 years or so. Edit: also have the PSVR on pre-order to go along side my DK2,wouldn't mind seeing what the NX has to offer though. Interestingly, the little twitter poll done by the mirror(i know, i know) shows 25% of gamers are looking to buy the PS4P and only 13% for the Scorpio, saying that the NX killed them both with 54%. @donthate LMAO! Shifting those goal posts again i see..... Even in that tiny poll, it shows that interest in PS4P is good.
I pre ordered the pro....don't know enough about the scorpio and nx atm. Xbo s should be on the list tho. (Not buying it since I own a xbo already)
If everything is good about NX i will be getting that.. otherwise i'm satisfied with my standard PS4 and 3DS.
im buying ps4 pro day one as well as psvr day one
Paid off my PSVR recently, have the Pro preordered. Should be a nice holiday season.
Buying Pro first and NX later. Both gonna be launch day purchases.
Holy cow. Already 13% is committed to buying Scorpio wihtout even knowing what it is and at what price tag. Same with NX, yet PS4 Pro is known with price with imminent release only commands 25% of gamer? I hope that poll is wrong, because it isn't looking good for PS4 Pro if so.
@dont Yeah, not looking good for MS either. Nintendo is set to dominate the market, because at 54% with no price or details known....less details than Scorpio in fact...it's going to kill both MS and Sony combined. Between Sony's 25%, and Nintendo 54%, and we'll say Sony has 6% of that "other" category given current trends, that leaves MS with a whopping 15% of the market. Good times ahead for MS!!!!! Will state my oft repeated reasoning that fan boys too often can not even see how their own arguments don't even support their assertions.
Scorpio for me, since I have no interest in Sony consoles. I want to go all 4K and HDR next year with my home entertainment, so the Scorpio release will be the date I update my living room :) Nevertheless I am also interested to see if the NX will innovate the gaming landscape again, like the Wii did. A surprise there could sway me to get a NX too.
Scorpio for me all the way! I love Xbox and thank MS for taking risks with Scorpio by not just playing it safe. I want an upgrade not some marginal bump that has a major component missing and streams which is going to have issues I'm sure. MS wanted to release an always online console and was slammed for it yet here comes Sony doing the same thing rather quickly and it's fans don't even see it. MS is going to blow the roof off next year's E3 .
PS4. Pro for me! Looking forward to playing Horizon ZD at 4K and HDR
@King I m planning to ask you how much do you make??? Just kidding dude hehe, good for you if you can afford all these goodies! OT: They should really run this poll right after the NX's unveiling...
That's like the same price as your phone and Jordans. Gaming is too cheap to be honest.
Man, they better not screw up Metroid again. There hasn't been a solid Metroid game since the Prime trilogy. Unless you count Axiom Verge, I guess. ;)
As if most gamers only operate in there here and now. Some gamers actually are prepping for the future.
maybe a pro for the holidays.
For me likely the next generation PlayStation (the PlayStation 5 or whatever it would be called). I have little need atm for the PS4 Pro because I have no 4k HDR TV (waiting for my plasma TV to go bust before I invest in an 4k HDR upgrade) and would be unable to see any significant (key word here - significant) game-play/graphical preformance changes compared to my C Chassis OG PS4. Also am waiting for my 6 year old i3 laptop to go bust before I invest in a mid range gaming laptop to play Forza Horizon 3 and other PC games (seen game-play videos of Forza Horizon 3 and reminds me of how great NFS Most Wanted was minus the cops, unfortunately my laptop can't play FH3 direct from windows store as it is underspecced)
You don't need 4K tv. The optimal experience is 1080p with the sliders pushed all the up until you can't do 30 frames. Or 1080p at a super smooth 60 frames.
Yeah, it does seem like PS4 Pro isn't worth the upgrade from standards PS4. That sentiment seems to be shared a lot. That is a little unexpected, because I would think the Xbox One S would fall more into this category, but it seems to be more accepted. Color me surprised.
I think you'll find the Xbox one S comes under the category of 'current console' as does the PS4.
I don't really care about PSVR and don't really want to buy a system that offers very little over the PS4 I already have. Think I will just enjoy my current PS4 and wait for the Xbox Scorpio and maybe an NX.
PSVR is in my future for sure. NX I'm keeping an eye on, but will wait for more info before deciding. Even then, I may wait it out some, because my backlog continues to grow, and my handheld backlog is even bigger, and I'm coming to the conclusion that one or two compelling games at launch leads me to have many months before I find something else compelling to play....which for NX would likely be holiday of next year. PS4P I'll likely just snag one for free from work whenever we get some and they end up giving them away to the staff. X1S couldn't care less about. Scorpio I might get if MS manages to announce/release some more exclusives I find I want. Otherwise, I've been on the prowl for a Sharp Twin Famicom system...and will likely get that before Thanksgiving if all goes well.:)
None, I used to be a pc and console gamer but gave up pc 10yrs ago after my eldest daughter was born! I just didn't have as much time, but recently I have had it with the bs in console gaming. I had a neo on pre order and a psvr and also a Scorpio, but the other day thought screw it and bought a beast gaming rig and man I tell u it's so liberating playing at max settings at 60fps! Now I have cancelled my pre orders and instead will invest that cash into my rig. I love that I can play over 20yrs worth of awesome games at max settings and framerates even exceeding 300fps lol like for example was playing the dead space games last night and was getting 400fps lol all max settings! Been loving playing Bf3 at a solid 60fps max settings, and games are stupidly cheap. Don't get me wrong I will still console game, I own all current gen consoles, but I refuse to buy this nonsense of mid generation upgrades!!! And so will just play exclusives on ps4/x1/wiiu and the rest on pc.
Getting a PS4 Slim. I already have my uncle's regular PS4 downstairs but I wouldn't mind one for myself.
Same, i think i am ok till ps5 as my current set up of ps4, Pc, 3ds has got me covered on all my needs Sold my xone since most games i care about would be releasing on PC thanks xbox play anywhere
Sounds like 2020 indeed, maybe even 2021, because of lack of advancement in node shrinks.
Pro and NX.
I'm buying PS4Pro and PSVR THIS year.
me too. Paid off my PSVR this morning, and my Pro is preordered. I really can't wait for VR.
I'm trying to get my PSVR from argos but they are not taking pre orders. Looks like first come first served. I'd like to get a pro but that won't be until next year.
Im guessing argos is a game retailer. We dont have those where i am. I maybe wrong but Gamestop might still take preorders (if you have them in your area). If not, i think you can still get one before holidays if you act quick when it drops Oct 13. Also, I know for a fact that Gamestop employees have orders to sell preordered PSVRs if the person doesn't pick it up after a mere two days. So even if they are all sold out, you still have a chance to get your hands on one if you act quick.
Argos is a general "catalogue store", it sells all sorts from furniture to electronics. I don't think we have " GameStop " in the UK (not where I live anyway), we have "Game", but they have a bad rep. Argos don't have any system in place for pre-ordering anything AFAIK.
@Angel I see. @Lsbb I believe Amazon UK is taking preorders right now for PSVR. But do it quickly if you want it before Christmas because: http://www.mcvuk.com/news/r...
Playstation 5. Am fine with the PC & PS4 combo till 2018/19.
If I get anything, it'll be a Pro.
Pro , Scorpio and I will eventually get an NX but they need to proove their console before I waste more money on Nintendo crap. Scorpio is the console I reaally want the most though.
Scorpio is pretty much non existent though.
It's as non-existent as a PS4 Pro and NX right now. XD
@donthate the NX yes but we've actually seen the PS4 Pro and games running on it and have an actual release date. Cannot say the same for Scorpio.
Psvr, ps4p, 2 nxs then the scorpio later. I'm excited
I just picked up a 1070 from my PC I'm going to get the PS4 Pro and I'm pretty psyched for the Scorpio just not sure if I'll get that because I seem to be able to run all the games on the PC that Microsoft will make the only problem for me is I like to use the controller for shooting games and if there's no aim assist on the PC version I need to get it for console and if it's a Microsoft exclusive I would need a Scorpio
Halo 5 has no aim assist. So I'm pretty sure Halo 6 won't either.
You have a PC with a 1070 so obviously you like PC gaming and you are interested in a bying a console that will have all its games available on your PC for less money, better visuals/fps and no monthly Network fees because....auto aim? I m profoundly baffled...
One thing from your comment, slightly off topic though. Multiplayer is an issue so using a pc instead of xbox is not a true choice just yet. Ms need to announce full cross platform multiplayer for all game modes. Once they do it will be great, i can stick to pc, ps4 and maybe nx. Until then playing games against friends without a pc is ltd and prevents full conversion from xbox to pc.
Agreed. Playing with friends is unrivaled on consoles.
Yeah ultranova the problem for me is that I'm such a controller user all I ever use the keyboard for and mouse when I was a kid was playing the original Starcraft in King's Quest and stuff like that back in the late eighties early nineties but I had every single system that's release since ColecoVision so I always used to controller and I'm also a little older I'm 38 now so it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks. By the time FPS games got insanely popular I had learned to play them on console starting with the Dreamcast and then really got into it with Halo on the original Xbox. the keyboard and mouse just does not feel comfortable or right in my hands for playing a shooting game. A
@Ares Hehe I like your response! Yeah I grew up on consoles as well but i had my PC only period when i realised that couch/controller gaming was my thing. Most of my buddies are PC freaks but me and a friend (xbox nut) stuck to our guns. Long story cut short I had the impression you were a PC gamer hence the baffling part but I do get where you're coming from now and I share the same opinion. Edit: PS I m not that young either, as 31 is rapidly approaching!
Why would you need a Scorpio if you own a fast PC?!
Multiplayer against friends. Unless they change it to allow all game modes, in which case a fast pc would do.
I'm actually not surprised at the results. While the PS4 Pro and Scorpio are just seen as souped up current gen systems the NX will probably be the one to offer a very different gaming experience. As for me while the Pro is a no brainer especially with the exclusives I have to see what NX is before even considering it.
Iv went from ps2 to 360 to ps4 I don't know what my next one will be depends on when there out and which one my friends get. I know the Scorpio is out at the end of next year I wouldn't mind another Xbox but don't wana get that then ps5 if its way better than Scorpio comes out couple of months after. So don't know yet.
Homie your friends dont pay your bill get what you think is the best, i thought like that when i had a 360 (friend crap) then i was like you know what let me get a ps3(best investment ever) never looked back to ms ever again, in fact i have a p4 and im skipping this pro garbage for a 5, my friends dont pay me to play what i want, im content to find competent strangers that i could get along its refreshing always new things to talk about, i mean thats what social media was made for to socialize with everything
Yes I know they don't I like single player games but much rather play online & enjoy gaming with friends. Saying that I don't mind talking to other random people online either. most of them are die hard playstation none are getting the pro but they'll all likely get ps5
Yea, you completely missed his point. He wants to play with his friends..
You will likely have 18 months to 2 years between scorpio and ps5. If sony release the pro this year they cant release a ps5 until the pro has been out a while. If they did it would show the pro was a cash grab and demonstrate little support for those that bought one.
Aye I'll maybe just wait till ps5 is out don't know just have to wait & see happy enough with my bog standard ps4 for now.
The thing is that, in order for Sony to release another console, they have to make sure it makes a significant enough upgrade. It took Sony 3-years to release PS4 Pro, and to onlydouble the performance. When both XB1/PS4 launched in 2013, they were underpowered, so it is going to take even longer to wait for the performance to catch up. That is because, Scorpio is releasing on the cusp of technology shift, and Sony just missed it.
The PS5 probably won't be out before 2019 but again will be much more powerful...and knowing the first games which utilise the power take about two years in general on new systems there really isn't much sense in getting the Scorpio if one owns a PSPro.
PS4 Pro for sure! Maybe the NX if Nintendo wows me, same goes for the Scorpio next year.
Same. Ps4pro preordered, need to see the NX and it's launch line up. Scorpio is just too far away to worry about though I am interested.
Scorpioooo!! And if GoW or Spidey comes out next year then the ps4p as well.
you need to say ps4 pro to get upvoted on n4g bro.
I'm a real gamerso I'm getting everything that comes out. I don't plan on missing any great games.
buying everything doesn't make you a real gamer.
