For Nintendo's? Maybe. For the next Xbox? I'll have to buy an insurance first and an extended warranty XP
Both the 360 and PS3 were horrible launch consoles overall for me financially and in terms of reliability. The PS3 was way too expensive, and there was no way I was sinking over $700 for games and a launch console. The 360 was like buying a timed explosive. I honestly am not an early adopter. If a generation winds down I usually slow down and backtrack and pick up games from the lifespan to enjoy. Cheap, $10-$30 games that are just as good. Then, after a while, once I'm done with that, once I sit back and see the initial smoke settle, I decide my console of choice. You know, I may pick up a 360 this week just for Halo. Jasper sets have gotten my wall down, and I don't mind paying for LIVE. The question is, will an Arcade model with 20 G upgrade suffice, or should I get an Elite... I'm not picking up GoW3, HR, Mod Nations (maybe), MAG, or any of those other games anytime soon, and Halo Reach is getting me to think about a 360. The Last Guardian is my most anticipated PS3 exclusive but I love Halo.
Elite is your best bet especially with all the reach dlc you can expect.
Didn't you know ? bookstores have this book as #1 seller http://3redlightfix.com/ MS will start bundling 360's with that book. MS is helping the world have more engineers :)
I've invested quite a bit in my ps3, so I dont see myself leaving it anytime soon. And the best part is that by the time the new set of consoles come around, devs will start maxing out the ps3 so we will be seeing even more awesome games. Two of my favorite ps2 games, FFXII and GOW II both came out AFTER the ps3 was released. I think that says it all.
i already play on the next gen system. Plays games @ 1920*1200 @60fps 8xaa. I dont wait for when microsoft or sony decide to tell me its time for next gen. PC gaming ftw :P
Bought a PS3 at Euro launch, and will do the same when PS4 comes around...
With the PS2, I was gonna hold out until the price dropped; Then I played Oni on my friends PS2 and the next day I was at the mall! And I wasn't even much of a gamer in PS1 era. With the PS3, I wasn't even trying to delude myself and it payed off because the 60gig is head and shoulders above the every other PS3! I use all my USB, card readers and PS2 backwards compatibility(the best way to play GOW2 original through HDMI and getting to try out the PS2 upscaling shortly after) No reason not to jump in head first next-gen!
I regret buying the 360 early on (And at all). It's a ticking time bomb, it doesn't have an HDMI port, ALL of the included accessories are broken.... Nope, I'm buying the next consoles (If any of them interest me) at LEAST 2 years AFTER their launch.
PS4 will be a first day buy. The next Xbox will probably have to wait a while just to make sure it's reliable and not gimping games. The next Nintendo console will probably be a first day buy depending on what they do (if it's a traditional console it'll be a first day buy, if it's gimmicky then no).
Can I have that new Nintendo and Sony PlayStation please? Thank you. DAY ONE!!! :)
Exactly what do you mean gimping games? because I don't see MS deliberatly holding games back, sure there are advantages with blu-ray but Sony's innovation isn't MS's fault isn't if you get what I mean and they are trying to do the best with what they have.
I miss the Fatty PS3 Backward Compatible + 4 USB Ports + Card Reader, I Know its not Necessary At All but WOW, That Fatty was Really Really Equipped and that's Just Awesome My PS3 Slim is So Beautiful and All [thank GOD the GF is not in the house cuz It'll be Real Problems lol] but I would love to have the Fatty-Full-Equipped PS3 Gamers FTW!!!
Unless I can get my hands on a few and then jack-up the price in a turn around sale. I did that in 2006 when the Wii launched and made some good money. They we're happy to get the Wii and I was happy to make the $$. As for my own gaming, I have learned it is best to wait to adopt a new platform. Not only for technical reasons (RRoD, for example), but cost and quality of launch titles. I waited 2 and 1/2 years to get an Xbox and over a year for my PS3. By the time I had both consoles there was a plethora of great games available for both a reasonable prices.
I always wait a year after ALL consoles are launched before purchasing the one I want. That's ALWAYS worked out great for me in the end. It's hard to wait but I truly commend all those that go out in the first launch window of the consoles and buy them. If not for them...
the PS3 will still be going for at least 2 more years, so i will get the PS4 in its 2 year as for the 360... i will wait for games that i want, then buy it
No. Unless they launch the systems with plenty of good games. I'll buy a PS4 after it's first year to get a good collection of games going so I'll have to catch up, and hopefully by then they'll be a price drop. I'll buy the MS consoles once it hits $200, and the Nintendo once it hits $150.
I'm buying the next PlayStation day one and I will eventually get the next xbox. I will not by the next Nintendo because they deserve no money.
line up, buy, craiglist/ebay for 3x profit. rinse and repeat for each generation.
Next xbox day one for sure.
No. Waiting 2 years for the Elite was the smartest move I ever made. My friends who bought theirs on day one either RROD'd or now have bought a $100 60GB hard drive to keep up with DLC. Waiting 1 year minimum is generally a rule of thumb with any console. Then there will be more good games, a better SKU, etc.
1 agree and 12 disagrees. You pretty much had it coming. :P
I wonder if it'll use DVDs still...
I will be there getting the next Xbox day 1. Same as the next Playstation. How ever the next Nintendo i may skip on. The Wii has been nothing but a dust collector and i think i out grow everthing Nintendo a long time ago. Just didnt want to amit it. You ask me MS and Sony are the only true console makers anymore and i will support both in the future!
If the PS4 has launch games like Resistance:Fall of Man or Motorstorm on the PS4 you can count me in. I got my PS3 about 2 months after launch after seeing Resistance Ads and playing Motorstorm for the first time at Gamestop.
i will probably get the ps4 on released date but Motorstorm , Resistance , Heavenly Sword on release date would make it a 100% buy for sure
im going to be using my ps3 till the apocalypse, which , according to my calculations, is 2 years away
Turbografx16, Genesis, PS1, PS2, PS3, Gameboy, Gamegear, DS, PSP... Only ones I ever regretted were Turbografx and Gamegear. Sony has never let me down. 12
Oh yeah, Saturn and regretted that. 12
that is only because I am a 2D fighter FREAK! 2D fighters on the Saturn were 2nd to none at the time they were released. I still have the 8meg ram cartridge.
Too bad about Turbografix; By far the best of the 16bit consoles! Would love to play Keith's courage and Bonk's Adventure/revenge again!
You regretted your Saturn purchase? Nooooooo........ ;) I love that big black brick (still have it somewhere, albeit in less than working order). Daytona USA kicked Ridge Racer's arse, at leats until they mucked up it up with the 'deluxe edition'.
I wanted more RPGs on the Saturn, and after I beat Bonk's Adventure I had nothing to play so I traded it in for Genesis. 12
I loved tthat alot of arcade games were on the tubogrfx system! street fighter, r-type etc.. I also liked castlvania. I also get most systems at launch cept 360. even though I have wanted one for the ME games!
Ps34 for sure but hey we atleast have 2-3 years before Sony even thinks of launching a ps4.
I also plan on buying the Playstation 34 on launch day. *Troll Face*
By the time the PS34 comes along, we'll be 'jacking' directly into our brains for games!;)
i think next gen ill wait in tell the 1st bundle comes out and for them to fix any hardware issues for both Xbox and PLaystation day one for Nintendo tho
I mean they may not be the best games but imsure they will be better than ps3 games but i will enjoy it moré few years later just like what happend with the ps3 i only hope the ps4 games dont glich or lag like this gen games take your time please to make the games most of them lag and have many gliches
"K Mentira" , " Tan Glichando" lol , jodas venezolano deja de robar internet "Vamonos"
Depending on the price and my mood.
I always tend to wait 1 year. And it always makes sense. Also gives me that year to catch up on games I missed on the previous gen.
ps4? maybe, depends on price and launch games. nintendo... no xbox? I'll wait at least 2 years. they usually release half azz hardware missing features then release the actual console later after all the fools spend on featureless consoles.. hdmi anyone? rrod? i'm sure it will have great games but i can wait.. ' not to mention by that time the ps3 will be dominating and all the best games will be on the ps3 anyway..
You don't know - - What will be in it. - What games you will have. - Price.
I usually 'early adopt' one console each gen. My SNES, Saturn, Dreamcast, PS2 and PS3 were all bought 'at launch' here in the UK (unfortunately, so was my Atari Jaguar...). Next gen I'll do the same, but obviously can't say which at this point. Still, given how happy I am with the PS3, I'm heavily inclined to stick with Sony (barring disasters).
I think this Gen will be my last. Gaming is getting too expensive. I'll just have to take the wait and see approach.
lol, why make it your last? You can always buy a system and games for cheap at the end of every generation.
I've had too many problems...... 1. Adult Responsibilities 2. Spousal Complaints 3. cost of games and accessories I'm happy with finishing my gaming career with my PS360. I'm done. You guys enjoy.
This will be my last Gen too. At the ripe old age of 44, I'm really too old to play games this Gen, let alone next.
When life keeps me from videogames, it keeps me from videogmaes. I think I'll always be a gamer but probably not as animatedly as I am now. But I can almost guarantee that I will not be making a conscious decision on whether I will be a gamer or not. Just like I never made a conscious decision to become a gamer.
How can people disagree about how I feel about my gaming life? F outta here!!
Bought my ps3 at launch and never looked back. It took about 1 year for the ps3 to start rolling, but it was worth it still love my 60gb ps2 compatible ps3 with memory card slots and 4 usb. play it everyday and never had any problems.
i imagine most of us will be, once the previews and videos of games running on the new tech start coming out, how will we resist? brand irregardless for me
I will wait for the first price drop on all 3 future consoles before considering purchase. PS4 will be my first purchase for obvious reasons. I trust Sony more than Microsoft and Nintendo when it comes to pushing technology and providing the top quality exclusives that I am most interested in. My second console will depend on what Microsoft or Nintendo has to offer me. One thing is certain. I won't be rushing out to buy a Xbox 720 until I know that it doesn't have hardware problems.
depite the luckster games that came out with both consoles and the 360 with having RROD and sony with the High Price point but the fact is u still get a better offering then the xbox 360!! u get Wi-Fi Built in web browser it has bluetooth which can pretty much connect to any headpiece u get ur usb ports u have urself a blu-ray player u can have the ability to change your harddrive to any amount u want it and the abilty to have 3D and 1tb disks just with an update
I`ll buy a ps4 when ND releases their first next-gen game
first Xbox reliable 360 not reliable nextbox- don't see them skimping on the quality of build this time maybe after first price drop PS4- Also after first price drop Next Nintendo - Maybe if they have more games PC- already got a good one, maybe I'll upgrade video card in 2-4 years
The only time I have ever bought a console on day one was with the Wii. Will I do it again for Nintendo? If I have the skrilla at the time, probably. Microsoft and Sony? NO. I don't make $1,000,000+ a year. Sorry
man Ive camped for numerous consoles during my life and its good to get it as soon as possible. I remember camping for my Dreamcast, Xbox, GCN, PS2, PS3 and Wii. It was fun, people really bonded during the waiting hours. And it really brings back memories of fun times. Im definitely going to be one of the first to get a PS4 (we all know OG 60GB PS3's are superior) and WiiHD. I cannot wait until new consoles come out.
lol, so since i didnt wait in line for hours maybe even days just to get a console that has only launch games(launch titles almost always pale in comparison to the later entries) im not a hardcore gamer... i will never get a console on day one, not saying i will wait a year or anything like that, after all i got my ps3 the febuary after it came out which is only a couple of months later.
going by the ps3 it was a good idea for this gen. i have the original 60gb ps3 with full backwards compatibility, 4 usb ports, and the memory card slots. now i dont think what happened this gen with the ps3 will happen again sony knows they reached a little too far this time around so the ps4 will most likely be a little less of a technology beast comparatively. but i will probably get the ps4 as soon as i am financially able too, then the next xbox a little while after that just like i did this time around and the same with last gen too. nintendos next system will have to prove itself before i consider going back to them
I may wait 6 months to 1 year for a ps4, but the next xbox? No, (fool me once microsoft, but definitely not again)2 year wait minimum for xbox 720 or whatever
i never gotten a console on launch before n now that im older i sure as hell wont miss this opportunity now that money isnt a problem for me day one for all 3 companies with a maybe for microsoft
I'm too busy with creating my own games right now so I barely even have the time to play them. It's been 2 months since I last played a game. I think I'll wait.
do you have your own company ? im seriously thinking about getting into the industry EDIT: at timesplitter , do you have a publisher yet? im guessing is a small game since you just mention 2 people working on it , do you guys need more staff?
I made a company with my brother, but we're just trying to gain experience, really. And our first game is still under development. (we're using Unreal Engine 3, which is now free) We're just trying to make something we can show when we'll be looking for a job in the game industry. But at the same time making games is my childhood dream so I'm having a blast doing this. There are so many stories I want to tell.
If you have a 360, have you ever considered XNA? http://creators.xna.com/en-...
...YES...PS4...DAY...1!!! ;-P (well 'IF' i got the money at the time) Saying that, a 'PS4' without Ken Kutaragi tho??? :-( MAN!!! THE INTERNET WILL PAY FOR THAT!!! (YES i blame the internet!!!) :-/
to buy ps4 day one next generation. but i don't think its worth it to get trampled by 1000 people or being stabed and killed over... oh wait, YES IT IS! : P
ps4..thats a long way way ahead.the ps2 had wot 120 million sales in 10 years?as it stand the ps3 is 30+ million now in bout 4years. yeah that sounds about right.8 years @ 70million and another 2 years with escalating sales due to price lowering. yeah 120 million ps3's at the launch of the ps4. next xbox @ 65-70 million sales id guess.thats bout another 2 years id roughly say. thats why the ps3 will eventually outsell the xbox. ill adopt then
