If I buy multiple, it would be for the exclusives. I'll stick with PS4 and Wii U until I see more Xbox exclusives. I'm not a big FPS fan so Halo is out of the question.

Same here. I play ALL multi plats on PS3 and the many, many quality exclusives and I have an Xbox for exclusives and it's no secret that my Xbox only gets used in September every year when Halo/Gears is released and I rent them and use a 1 month free XBL card (no way in hell I'm paying to play games online) and then put my Xbox back in the box and up in my closet until next September. I won't be buying the next Xbox, it's not worth it.

Why wouldn't someone want to own all the newest consoles, if money wasn't a factor?
You would never miss out on an exclusive, and like this gen, each system has its own unique strengths and features. I don't prescribe to a logic that prevents me from enjoying a system just because I owned another first. From PCs, to consoles to portables, it seems that every system is my favorite at one point or another. As long as a system can provide me with an engaging experience that I enjoy, then sure why wouldn't I allow for that experience. Life is short, unfortunately so is money. I pride myself on getting all of whats available for me to enjoy as time and money afford.

If I can afford more than one, then of course I'll get more. At the moment a combination of PS4 and PSV is the most plausible scenario for my next gen gaming but I'm open to other consoles too.

In the past I've always got them all, right at launch, like a sucker!

xbox360 $400
quake $60
perfect dark zero $60
Kameo $60
controller $50

$630 +tax

ps3 $600
untold legends $60
resistance $60
controller $50

$770 +tax

thats $1200 on two consoles and a few games that were medocre games at best.

now, besides a small time with uncharted 3, gears 3 and dark souls, they collected dust all 2009, 2010, 2011 and i gamed on pc 95% of the time.

think I'll wait a year or two into next gen before i buy another console, i doubt they will have anything at launch as good as the games i'm playing on pc right now, launch games always suck. I know none of the games will look as good as the games I'm playing on PC.

I hear where your coming from. Us early technology adopters usually end up getting the shaft. It was the same way with the HDTV switch. $5,000 for a projection screen HDtv back in early 2000, and now you can get a good 50in lcd for less than $1,000.
But I think it also may be "AGE" lol. I think some of us older gamers and starting to see the value in Patience.

The problem is the money to buy the games, not the machine. 2011 has been a nightmare for the true gamers.
Exclusives can be considered dead and Sony has the game studios.
I don't think Epic will repeat the Gear "mistake" again.
Times have a changed.
Also, even if the ports have been bad, PS3 offered always a good experience anyway.
Most of the times the difference between versions was just nitpicking.
So...I'll stick with Sony once again.
360 had only 4 exclusives I was interested about, Mass Effect 1 and the 3 Gears (2 of which can be bought on PC)
