Now Is A Bad Time To Buy An Xbox One Or PS4

Perhaps you’re sitting at home, getting hyped. You could hardly be blamed: a steady stream of conventions has yielded no shortage of bombastic trailers, and most of the major media companies are slowly turning up their media budgets in an effort to drive the general videogaming public into a cash-surrendering frenzy for the holiday season. If you’re still sitting on an Xbox 360 or a PS3, you might be realizing that you’ll be missing out on all of the biggest games of the season if you don’t upgrade to an Xbox One or a PS4 soon, and you might be considering picking one up in preparation. Here’s my advice to you: don’t. Whether you want to go with an Xbox One or a PS4, you’re better off waiting a few weeks until the games start rolling out and the deals start rolling in. It won’t be long.

If you own a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, you most definitely will not be missing out on ALL the biggest games releasing this holiday season. These last gen platforms still offer a lot of new content, even moreso than the more recent Wii U.

The more sensible thing to do now is wait for the Big 3 to offer more deals, bundles, and price cuts that make the jump to current gen all the more enticing. The longer you wait, the better the deals will become as opposed to just jumping on the bandwagon now.

I bought a PS4 two weeks after launch for Killzone SF beause I'm a fan of the series, and I wasn't dissapointed although bying a console day 1 isn't always a good choice. I could have waited but I didn't regret playing 3rd party cross platform games at better performances either.

Buying consoles early will mean you will have to wait for other games while playing the existing ones,as opposed to buying a console 3 years later and trying to catch up while getting new games. I got my first PS3 in the holiday of 2010, and I was freaking overwhelmed with all the games. I didn't want that to happen again. That was another reason I got my PS4 early

Since when is getting overwhelmed by games ever a bad thing? That just means you never have to go through drought periods and you can get games cheaper than when they released.

I had a PS3 since launch and my backlog still increases beyond comprehension because of all the weekly digital sales and monthly flash sales. Upgrading to a PS4 at a later date when the console and its games are cheaper and has much greater deals is the choice to go.

I bought PS4 on launch and got Xbox one in 2015. I do understand it was kinda rush for me to buy the console from the start. But i have no regrets at all. I do enjoy both of them. I played Halo Master Chief Collection and completed all the Halo campaigns, it took me about 4 days to finish all of them. And also, i got bunch AAA and Indie games on my PS4. Oh my god, it soo good. And next year, i'm think i'm going to be broke because there a lot of games come out and i cant choose which one going to be my list. Oh god, please give me more money.

I have a PS4 and will be playing Fallout 4 in a couple months. Who wouldn't want a ps4 or x1 now?

ABizzel12133d ago

Now is the time to buy a PS4 and XBO..... but just wait a few more months for better deals and better bundles. XBO has a great holiday 2015 line-up, both already has some really good games out, and 2016 should be strong year for XBO and an amazing year for PS4.

This holiday is the year to get a new console.

Err that's true about literally everything that is being sold on the electronics market. It will get cheaper if you wait... Well except collectables and antiques :P

I bought Xbox One and do not regret buying it. Since launch playing great titles like Forza 5, RYSE and DeadRising 3, Plus great third party titles like Assasins Creed Black Flag were all worth it for me. In 2014 was no less for me playing Plants vs Zombies, Titanfall, Castle Wolfenstein, Super Timeforce were all great add in the second half with Lord of the Rings, Evil Within, Sunset Overdrive, Alien Isolation, D4, COD and Halo MCC were all well worth it. 2015 has been great also with Ori, State of Decay, Batman, Resident Evil Revelations, Forza Horizon present Fast and Furious etc., Moving into the latter half of this year the lineup looks even better so I don't regret purchasing on day one. However, with all that said there have been some fantastic deals post launch that can make us first day buyers envious. Either way it has been a fantastic start to this generation and the next two years look even more amazing.

I bought an Xbox One and play MCC. That's all I own. I play everything else on PC and Nintendo platforms. Can't wait for Gears & Halo 5.

Automatic792132d ago

I agree on Gears and Halo 5. I own a laptop that can be used for gaming but other then remote play via windows 10 I can't see myself come to play pc games. Console gamer for life.

StrayaKNT2133d ago

I have had my xbox one and ps4 from day one. My xbox has surpassed my expectations this generation releasing some of the best games I have ever played.

And with the rest of the year being packed with AAA exclusives heading all through out next year, there's never been a better time to own an xbox one :) gears in less than a week =D

tigertron2133d ago

Not sure why you got more disagrees because what you said is right. I bought an Xbox One with Sunset Overdrive last year and the Xbox just seems to be getting better and better. I'm so glad I bought one.

MasterCornholio2133d ago

Both seem to be getting better than to me and that's a good thing.

MasterCornholio2133d ago

I enjoyed my PS4 since I bought it at launch. So far it had exceeded my exoectations. I've had so many good games to play that I lost count.

I highly recommend it.

SniperControl2133d ago

I bought my PS4 at launch as well and not regretted it one bit, along side my PC, my gaming is covered this year.
I also added a X1 last year but found it a little underwhelming to be honest, hopefully 2016 will change that, especially with Quantum Break and Recore hitting the shelves.
