"TechRadar's latest poll suggests that twice as many readers would like to get their hands on a PlayStation 4 than they would the next iteration of the Xbox" -TechRadar
they already got bored and want ps4 cmon it have the best exclusives
I"m gonna be buying the PS4 day one. The PS1, PS2, and PS3 have never disappointed me and I'm very confident in Sony. On the other hand, I'm gonna wait a while to buy the next Xbox. After the terrible experience with the 360 hardware I'm gonna stay away for a while and I'm sure many others will do the same. MS mistakes this gen are gonna hurt them next gen.
I'm not going to buy either console until 3 years in, just to see what's happening in the scheme of things. For Microsoft I will be checking for reliability and commitment to true exclusives. For Sony I will be checking for online functionality and backwards compatibility. And both will probably be very expensive at launch. It would be utterly ridiculous if the PS4 was around 800 or 900 at launch. If that were the case, you would know that Sony was ripping you off even if they were losing money on every unit.
LOL, I ain't buyin the PS4 until Sony makes good on their promise to max out the PS3. Right now I'm debatating on whether I should save all the money I have for the PSP2. I'll be so cool if I get it. Most people won't even know its coming next year much less be able to afford it. BALLIN!!
I aint buying any new consoles for awhile.. PS3 still has more than enough great games to play to last me till '12.
I will try to save for the PS4, but my top priority is to save for a new TV (obviously future 3D).... Gaming is becoming too expensive lol.... Gotta settle down and with the amount I am blowing up on games, I don't tag myself as the best budget handler.... Till date my PS3 has cost me around 2000-2500$... But it was totally worth it... Hopefully this gen will last longer at least till 2012 and then APOCALYPSE!!!!!
How can someone rip you off if they lose money by doing it? Say something more intelligent next time pls. If sony wanted to rip you off they'd do like nintendo, make some cheap hardware and sell it way above production costs. If the PS4 cost 800$ at launch then that would be one hell of a machine. But sony wont do that, they know they have to launch the console at a somewhat reasonable price.
"How can someone rip you off if they lose money by doing it? Say something more intelligent next time pls." Hey, SuperM. My comment seems weird unless you think about it. It costs console companies like Sony and Microsoft more money to produce hardware because they create proprietary components such as the CPU, the graphics card, the controllers, etc. The cost of producing a console is NOT REFLECTIVE of its abilities. For 900 bucks in 2012 I will be able to produce a gaming PC which will be twice as powerful as any console produced in the same year even if it is a Xbox 3 or a PS4. Such is the advantage of open-box hardware in contrast to closed box consoles. So, as I said before, even if Microsoft or Sony loses money on every console they sell, if they're selling it for like 800 bucks, then they will essentially be ripping you off. If I can make a vastly better machine with the same amount of money, that means that Microsoft and Sony will be ripping us off at launch, and it would be better to wait for the price to drop.
OMG! We're going to start fighting over the next generation already? I,m not even done fighting over this one yet
Im think im going to do the same for next gen. Im gunna wait until at least 1-2 years and see how things pan out. The launch titles for new consoles are always never worth shelling out top dollar for. Ill just wait a bit for the price drop and added features and see what happens. My Ps3, 360 and Wii will last me until then.
i dont see it being that much, the MAIN reason for the ps3's insane price at launch was because of the blu-ray play and by the time the next generation of consoles come out im sure it will be much much cheaper to produce (assuming that they use blu-ray again). Im not saying they are gonna be cheap but i would imagine they are gonna start off around 400-500$ which isnt bad for a gaming console, yea by then you could build a PC that would destroy them for the same price but the thing is Sony usually only has its exclusives on their consoles so if you want to play them you have to buy it. I too will be waiting about a year though when they launch just to see what all they have to offer.
Its just the demand for the next xbox is very low because of the POS that is the x360.
A soldier's battle is never over, until death sets him free.
I'm with everyone else on the whole not buying the next console for at least 1-2 years. I'll milk the PS3 for as long as I can.
there's no confirmed spec for any of them and we're still just 4 years after the 360 launched and we're talking next gen already? come on, there's still a lot of juice left (I think) in current gen consoles and until there are PC games that are leap and bound above the console games technically and become the norm, and looking at current trend of the devs and publishers, I think this gen will last for a little bit more and it will still be awhile before the next gen consoles see the light of the day! try to think logically here, PC hardwares evolve by the days and benchmarks are raised alongside it. but what other games beside Crysis and S.T.A.L.K.E.R are pushing boundaries leap and bound over what the 360 and PS3 can only dream of running it? not that many, because devs and publishers are now tend to play it safe and cater to the most mainstream approach and currently, it's the least powerful consoles that they're targeting, not the high-end gaming rig!
All of you people stating "I'll give it the consoles a few years next gen to see how they pan out first." are going to be the ones whining when they buy their 3rd or 4rd generation SKU and it's different than the SKU at launch. "It doesn't have backwards compatibility, it doesn't have this, it doesn't have that. Now I'm angry that I didn't buy it at launch."
I certainly learned my lesson there. Only the PS3 was worth it. I'll consider buying another Xbox in the future, but only after a certain amount of time has passed. The Wii was a complete waste of time.
We don't even know what features it has and people already want it? Talk about mindless sheep... The big deal with the PS4/Xbox3 will probably be cloud computing. But if they screw up and remove physical media entirely, something I could see MS doing but not Sony, fully alienating people w/o internet access, they'll be killing the themselves if not the industry.
It's a gaming console. It will do typical things. Now we can expect more connectivity and more focus on online functionality. I don't expect Microsoft to make the same mistakes that they made this gen. At least I hope not.
Well i know it will feature better graphics so thats reason enough to make me want one. Concidering how games look this gen with UC2 and KZ2 it shows that next gen games will actually look like CGI, atleast the better ones.
The PS3 wasn't a typical console. Came with direct HD movie player system and 7 point speaker support. At launch promised game play back to two other consoles plus a PC system OS. @SuperM: Considering the amount of complaining devs are doing just making high end graphics for the current systems, their lack of ability or want to utilize the Cell, what makes you think they'll even try to do better "next gen?"
This isn't about being mindless... the PS brand never disappointed me. I've bought every PS day one without ever regretting a single penny of the expensive release price. You're right, i don't know what the PS4 is going to be but thats not relevant to me because as i stated above, Sony never disappointed me. So i want the PS4 even without knowing a single bit about it. The PS4 will be day one too... and the PS5 and so on. p.s. sorry for my bad english ^^
Sorry, but yes, its being mindless. When Sony's talking about introducing 3D graphics along with motion control next year to the PS3 partially through system updates, the graphic abilities of the PS3 have yet to be fully explored, looking to the next thing when no details about it have yet to even be rumored is extremely mindless, reactionary thinking. As bad the jerk-wads talking up Natal who have yet to see one actual game and think the camera unit can be installed into the console itself. Yes Sony's delivered with their products, but that hardly entitles them to a free pass. I say this as someone who bought a PS1 day-one and had it for several years, one PS2 that was literally crap out the box, and a PS3 that died out of warranty nearly two years and over 1500 on [email protected]
Your PS3 is dead because you were 1500 [email protected]! Never heard my fan do the things it did when [email protected] P.S: Day one PS4 owner, unless there is a line and then I will wait until there is no line! Look what I got in my PS3! I tried fooling myself with the PS2 and played Oni one time; Off to the mall!
no 1 wants anything to do with that cheap MS hardware/greedy ways
Maybe it's because their readers know that the next Xbox console is unlikely to be called the 'Xbox 720'? The number '720' has connotations with standard hi-definition. Xbox 1080 would be a more likely name if they stick with a number. They might choose another word instead.
Finally an XBOX with Hi-def!
PS4 BRING IT !!! (Starts saving a nickel a day for the next 4 years).
Launch day PS4 owner<<<<<<
WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAARRESSSSSSSSSS.
I wont buy any next gen consoles anymore... i's gonna be all waggle / 3D / amera BULLSHIT
Thats all fine and dandy, but you do know they will eventually stop making games for the current generation of consoles, don't you?
i was there at PS3 midnight launch. it has never disappointed me. PS4 is next on my list. Sony has best games since PS1 and has never let me down. Sony customer service is the best and always like that for many years in my experience. I have no interests in MS next console. MS are known for rushing into their product. thus impending hardware failures.
What? The original Xbox was a reliable system. I have one that works to this day. Can't say the same for my PS2, but at least I have a PS3 with backwards compatibility.
People wanted the PS3 over the 360, they just didn't want to pay $600 up front for it.
i'll be getting all 3 companys next gen consoles day 1
what one disagree im being serious here i will get them all its kind of obvious they wont all come out on the same day so i have time to get them all
i hope there wont be a ps4 for a long ass time,cuz i love my ps3 and there's still a sh!t load of amazing potential for the ps3 to bring out .. i have a ton of exclusives to play with some amazing multiplats and free online with awesome features (apsolutely LOVE Life with paystation).. btw yes i will be def buying the ps4 along with he psp2 on day one regardless of price tag as im a sucker for tech stuff and i know from personal experience sony doesnt fvck around wen it comes to innovation and technology in the same sentance. SONY4LIFE!
As they sit now the PS3 is advanced technology over the Xbox. Just with a blu-ray player alone. That and reliability I'm sure plays a huge part in they're decisions. If MS never plans to switch to blu-ray. All they can do is make bigger HD's. Otherwise they will just fall behind even more. That or they will have to come up with something totally new and revolutionary.
MS tried to bribe sony for it and didnt get it....
PS4? I really hope this won't come until 6 or 7 years down the line. The PS3 hasn't even begun to reach its full potential. Make no mistake though Sony is already looking into the PS4 but I doubt they will have anything in concrete for a looong time. They have invested (and loss) way too much money in the PS3. As for Xbox 360, I say it has another year tops!
Well i havnt been to a console launch yet ! But since i now have a really well payed job i think ill be buying the PS4 on launch :D and it should be good !
Yea their ready for PS4 and I hope those people get a PS3 to start riding with Sony.
After my first ever effort to goto a midnight launch those few years ago only to get a piece of shiiit xbox360 to have to go through 4 of the duds before seeing the light. I'll sleep in this time and thrash the PS3 till I buy the PS4 and I still play the WII so be getting Nintendos next console too just wont even look at the next dudbox from microshaft.
" 23 days 2 hours ago Whatever they choose... You know that they always deliver the cutting edge tech that outlasts its competitors. My advice? Start saving for your ps4 now. Buy it when it first comes out. Support the next playstation early on. Look what happened when you guys did not support the original, fully loaded, 4 usb port, backwards compatible, multiple media ports 60 gig ps3's... Now you get the far less awesome slim, with fewer bells and whistles" If you are thinking about letting some time pass to get the next playstation, you obviously do not know your console history. And another thing, the ps3 will have a 10 year cycle. Don't worry about the 4th for another couple of years. Microsoft, I will wait a while for. Maybe they learned their lesson with the RROD, enough to get their acts together next time around. But, I am not going to bet my life on it. I'll wait a year and see how things pan out with the 760. Sony gets purchased day 1.
Great comment pal. I started saving for the Ps3 when PS2 launched. Took 5$ and put it into a savings account so I could get one at launch. I had over 3000$ saved part of it went to a car but I still had 1000$ to spend on the system and Games the day it launched.
If you open the article and then click on the PS4 article on the right side of the page it says that the next gen war will begin 2011/2012. Is that a joke or somethin? PS3 is finally getting off the ground. Hell, in 2.5 yrs the PS2 will prolly still be selling! I'm thinking more along the lines of 2013/14. I could be wrong, but doesn't that seem a tad early to you guys?
Late 2013 sounds completely reasonable to me :)
It makes sense. M$ has burned so many people with their defective hardware there is bound to be a backlash.
PS4 owner here unless they do the whole Games all Download and no disc. It might happen 20 years in the future but I highly doubt anyone will do an all Download console for the next 2-3 Gens. The internet is already strained it will not work well enough to justify.
However they can't bring them selves to buy a PS3 to save face but they are going to be born again PS fans come PS4.
the playstation brand has never disappointed me
DON'T BOTHER MICRO$OFT!!! ;-D But no Ken Kutaragi for PS4??? :-( That makes me sad and i blame the F-IN internet for that!!! :-/ YOU WILL ALL PAY!!! ;)
There wont be a PS4 after the 4.7 Billion loss.
at this rate there wont be another MS console its ashame the gap is closing after they had a whole yr headstart
Funny there was a 360 after a 4 billion loss and Im sure there will be another system after the 2 billion loss from RROD and 3-4billion loss from the launch of the 360 spin that you Muppet. Edit: 4billion, 7 billion who cares I was just trying to make a point to this mindless Idiot who has no life.
Try 7 billion.
No wonder Sony's over rated flat screens are so over priced, they are trying to make up for console losses.
when MS puts out a new console I will probably be a first adopter.
I am not surprised. This is a no-brainer. If Sony releases the PS4 day and date with the Xbox 720 and has better tech, Microsoft will find it hard to keep up. I think a lot of people even Xbox 360 owners are going to do a wait and see approach before buying a Xbox 720 because of RROD.
I'd like to agree with you, but the fact is that if the new xbox has a new Halo game the masses will buy it up like crazy. Halo has been pushing both the Microsoft consoles and the next Microsoft gen will heavily rely on it too. If there was no Halo, there'd be no 360. Halo could have survived on its own with its own hardware.
I agree with you. I am not buying the next xbox for a few months after release.
Did you see the launch games for the 360; All PS2 ports! There is no point in a XBOX first year buy!
I am hoping Microsoft brings their A game next gen in terms of reliable hardware and a lot more quality first party real exclusive games. I am hoping to pick up a PS4 and a Xbox 720 next gen. I am definitely not picking up a Wii 2 unless Nintendo decides they want to care about graphics again. I think Microsoft will need to launch the 720 with Halo or try to release ahead of the PS4 in order to build momentum. I think Sony has learned some hard lessons about launching after Microsoft in North America.
Before is start lets concider PS3 and XBOX 360 current Gen. There is no real need at this point for either company to RUSH to bring one out. Microsoft will obviously (not including Wii in this discusion) be the first to release a Next gen console as they have already been on the market a year longer and technologically thier console is lacking. Microsoft can take its time this time around and do the quality control they need.
They change that gay controller and I will consider buying a ps4. And even I will wait on buying the next xbox.
I will buy the MS console day one and wait for a price drop for the PS4.
This much is certain though; unless MS buys or creates a bunch of studios I'll probably once again pass on their next console. Also up to date hardware tech and reliability along with no online fee to play games online will be a must. Out of all three consoles the front runner will most likely be the PS4 due to the best quality:quantity exclusives available for the past 3 gens. The only one, unless another company comes out with a new console is the Wii that may a shot if they come out with a high end console which is unlikely. Would love for a new company to come out with a new console. A console that will enter by buying, creating and more importantly realizing how important 1st and second party studios are. A console that also understands the importance of dedicated servers. Honestly, I believe that most gamers when it comes to online service mainly wants to just play games with the ability to talk in game and with dedicated servers for those games with more than 16 players. Everything else really is fluff, whether one likes it or not.
Guys, calm down. There will be a next Playstation and a next Xbox and they will both be great.
I'll do what I always do and get every next gen console as soon as I can get my hands on one.
