Wii U if only because there's been no price drop on the cusp of an NX announcement.

Already have a wiiu but I won't be buying an xb1 or ps4. I'll be buying an xb1 slim and ps neo instead.

Thatguy-3101822d ago (Edited 1822d ago )

so you don't have an xbox 1 or a ps4? Yea at this point people that buy the consoles are pretty much the casuals that don't keep up with game related news. I'm surprise Sony didn't follow MS with a price cut seeing how the new consoles are around the corner.

No reason to until something new hits the market.

Edit: From their perspective, I mean. They're still selling double at a higher price. Until the S comes out with some additional features, they can hold on until they start seeing sales slip.

@thatguy, I have shown great restraint in the 8th gen... but seriously I have been doing some major catching up on saturn, ps1 and various other games that i have wanted to play from years past. When i do get these new systems i will already have games ready to play on them. Gamestop did a sale not long ago. 4 for $20 so I picked up titanfall and sunset overdrive for xb1 and killzone shadowfall and knack for ps4.

Exactly what I'm going to do next gen. I'm not buying consoles near release anymore if they're to release better versions a few years after.

iceman061822d ago

This is the slippery slope that some people feared with this mid-gen plan, and it makes sense. Why pay for something that will be bested by another iteration in a couple of years? My hope (against hope) is that this doesn't become a trend and is simply a response to the unique nature of last gen. (which dragged on for 2 years longer than normal) Either that, or provide the option day one for a high end option and a more consumer friendly option. Other than that, I can see some people making similar decisions.

Well I already have a two Ps4's an xbox 1 and a wii U, adding another Xbox and Playstation wont hurt

MachuchalBrotha3161822d ago

True that! You can also always trade a Xbox and Ps4 towards their respective upgraded consoles.

formanbradley1822d ago

Why the actual fuck would you do that?

Iberius1822d ago

I can appreciate the idea of "wait and see". It's a shame many people (including myself) do not have the self-discipline to do it.

qwerty6761822d ago (Edited 1822d ago )

With many reports suggesting the Neo will launch this year the last thing someone should do is buy a PS4.

For xbox idk, I guess you could wait for scorpio but the S model could tide you over for a couple years.

Either way bad time to buy a console right now.

Edit: lol why am I getting downvoted for posting common sense?

demonddel1822d ago

Neo won't release this year no reason to no games currently supports it's abilities except for probably VR and Sony don't want to create that problem, it was part of their plans but Microsoft through a monkey wrench and they whole strategy now it's back to the drawing boards I wouldn't be surprised if they don't just skip the Neo and go straight for the 5

hsark1822d ago

if the skip to the 5 that instantly means they're killing the ps4 and going back own their own words it also scraping NEO after all this hype and press release would be suicide`s biggest advantage like nintendo is exclusive experiences..... PS2 had lower specs than the GC and Xbox yet still dominated the mark

Sunny_D1822d ago

Wasn't it confirmed that NEO is coming out this year though? I mean it could also come out early next year.

medman1822d ago (Edited 1822d ago )

I disagree...if you don't have an xbox one, and you buy the one S, it will probably only "tide you over" until E3 2017, when Microsoft goes full boat on the Scorpio, then you'll probably be wondering why you couldn't have just waited and saved your dollars a little bit longer. Especially if you don't have a good 4k television to connect that Xbox One S to and take advantage of the HDR10 and 4k blu ray.

WickedLester1822d ago

Unless you have a 4K TV, If you want an X1 the thing to do is get the original big one. They're selling them dirt cheap right now.
