Top 5 Reasons to Avoid the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 This Holiday

Gamnesia: "Are you excited for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One? I wouldn't blame you if you are. While many gamers might be starting to be happy with their Wii U or are still happily engaged with their Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, there is no secret that new hardware releases can get people excited. We recently got the iPhone 5s and 5c, Apple's annual phone release, and per usual new hardware and toys get potential buyers excited. It's especially notable with new console generations because they only come these days about once every seven to eight years. I would be kidding myself if I said I wouldn't love to have a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One proudly sitting under my TV next month. I was certainly proud of my Wii U launch console when I bought it day one.

However, unlike new versions of phones that can draw upon old features and applications to be instantly relevant while they wait for people to actually take advantage of their capabilities, new gaming consoles are generally not so cut and dry. While fans of either console next month spend time bickering about launch lineup, features, price point, and 1080p versus 720p... I am here to tell you why you should be putting off your "next-gen" console purchases until a later date."

To late ps4 is paid for along with 2 games. I think I'm going to go on a ds4 hunt at the local electronic stores today

I bought one yesterday. It feels better than the DS3 but I still think I like the Xbox style design better.

"Avoid Launch Console Problems"

This is the only logical reason.


I'm also buying a PS4 as soon as I can (no official pre-order here in Brazil yet and I'm still deciding on buying it here or getting an imported one as soon as they appear if the price is better) but truth be told there's plenty of reasons to not buy consoles at launch...

Anyway, this article reminds me this:

Yeah these are "gaming websites" who discourage people from buying games consoles!

Thanks gamnesia you are a credit to the industry /s

TechMech21819d ago

I think it was actually a good article. I am still not sure which console I'll buy, and the small details like resolution if third party games and larger issues like reliability are still not known. Then again, I never considering buying either system at launch.

Gonna buy a PS3 right now since my current one broke :( And gonna pick up a PS4 when Kingdom Hearts 3 or Uncharted 4 drops :) Happy Gaming!

If you don't have The Last of Us of Batman: Arkham Origins I think GameStop is gonna offer a bundle with those two games on Black Friday for $200. If I'm correct on the details, that's an incredible deal.

Flyingdog6701819d ago

Already have the Last of US, Amazing game :)As for Arkham Orgins... i don't know, i haven't played any of the Batman games, so i'll see. Thanks for the info.

Lol. These articles are so funny, wish at least one would include definitive reasons why someone should get one this holiday season. articles like this scare the consumers who just don't know.

AbsoluteZelda1819d ago

Because consumers shouldn't buy consoles at launch. It's pretty simple. Previous launches should have proven this.

PS4, day one (29th Nov in UK) :D
