I started with the PS2, got the Xbox late in its cycle, then got the 360, then a ps3 and now I'm going PS4, altho once MS cuts the price and drops the DRM/Mandatory Online stuff ill consider going back if I don't really take to the PS4s interface. Altho from what iv seen, that PS4 UI looks damn nice.

At this stage in the game it's unquestionably looking like I'll grab a PS4 sometime in the next couple of years. Maybe a gaming PC at some point too, though that's up in the air.

That's exactly what I did, and I'm planning to get a PS3 later in the year.

PS4 baby!

Though the design of the console/controller of X1 look better.

I was thinking Xbox with Halo in mind, but one franchise can't be enough for a whole console. Leaning PS4 until I see some change come from Microsoft. PS4 clearly seems the favorite and I don't want to end up paying more for a console that is less popular. I'm sticking with my 360 for awhile after launch though to see how it plays out.

Yea im going with PS4 at launch and that'll be my primary console until MS gets with the program, which i'll give them a year tops before they drop all that restrictive nonsense. Once they do that ill consider hopping back to MS as my primary console, unless i just really take to Sonys machine, which is entirely possible, but based on past history, iv never preferred Sonys systems to the others out there.

PS1, PS2, 360 because I got in way late and that's what all my friends had. And I've been planning to get a PS3 anyway but now I'm going to do it sooner by selling off my 360 instead of keeping it like I'd originally planned.

I mean I look at it and there's nothing to keep me there aside from Gears, and I've played three of those.

And PS3 has lots of sweet stuff, plus all the classics from 1 & 2 on the PSN store. Also Xbox sucks for jrpg's.

And like you I'm not going to say I'll never get an XB1 but if I do it'll be later in the gen and only if they come down off all the lunatic restrictions.

If you are leaning XB1 or dont have to jump into the next gen right away(unlike myself), then thats the best strategy. MS will cut the price and they'll drop that DRM crap when they see the system fail to meet their sales expectations.

Agree Xbox will come out with a cheaper console that works more like the 360 once sales tells them they were wrong.

Yea i had the PSone as well, but it wasnt until mid way through the PS2 life cycle that i really got into gaming. I mean i had pretty much every console, but didnt use them much, at least not the way i did with the PS2 then the Xbox.

Normally I don't care for petty console rivalry but...a region-free PS4? Now that deserves a mighty heartfelt applause. Finally at least one console manufacturer had the common sense to drag its sorry ass out of the caveman era.

Sony has essentially already won. They have succeeded by virtue of not being Microsoft.

There's plenty of situations where I don't have internet access for a 24-hour period. Those are usually called "vacation" and "bad weather."

Seriously, there's plenty of times the power gets knocked out for days at a time around here after a blizzard in winter and floods in summer. There's plenty of times I'm nowhere near an internet connection for days at a time, and I sure as hell ain't dragging a game console around on vacation just to "check in with The Boss."

Dumbest freakin' idea Microsoft has ever come up with. Did whatever nitwit who came up with that honestly think that there wouldn't be a situation where someone *might*, you know, lose power or an internet connection? Do they think we're all slaves who sit around glued to our media centers, and....

...oh wait: that's what they *do* think. Sorry.

It sounds like you wouldnt be doing any kind of gaming during those times any way, so what does it matter?

That's what I'm wondering about the whole thing. Why would they require you to "check in" if you're not even playing within a 24-hour period, either by choice or by fate? And what are they going to do to you, your game, or your console if you fail to "make curfew?" Sounds like a psychotic parent staying up all night waiting for you to get home.

I was rooting for Xbox, but they f**ked up this time. Then they have the nerve to price it at $499.

PS4 will outsell XboxOne simply due to price. I guess Microsoft will learn like Sony did that prices play a major role in who wins.

$399 was a pleasant surprise but $499 is what I was expecting. I certainly wouldn't call MS price point outlandish.

It's not. They could sell their console at $399 too. But they just have to shove the Kinect down everyone's throat.

That's a really good question and something I've been wondering about too. If you don't check-in, what's the consequence?
