    No, why would I even consider preordering a console that will have few games, most of which I can still play elsewhere, and have unknown quality hardware.

    No.

    Could've also voted for 'Im happy with WiiU' but I know I'll pick up one or both consoles eventually anyway. Never pre-ordered a console in my life, and see absolutely nothing on either of these two that's gonna change my mind either.
    Plus I'm gonna make my kids wait for them: kinda spoiling them with games, there's stacks of games they've spent 5 minutes on and not bothered coz there's so much else to play - when I was a lad (arrr!) I had like 2 crusty old Atari 2600 games to play and loved it: my 2 lads are just jaded with it all ...I'm a bad dad! :lol:

    No "All 3"? I plan to, in the next few years, get a Wii U (soon hopefully), Followed by an Xbox One or a PS4, followed by whichever of those I did not get.

    Excuse my stupidity, I read that as "Have you decided on a Next Gen Console yet?" as opposed to "Have you preordered a..."

    To which my answer is no.

    Seems this poll doesn't see the WiiU as a "nextgen" console.

    THE FUTURE... IS NOW!

    In all seriousness, I pulled a "it's 5:40 AM and I haven't gone to bed yet" intelligence check, and I failed the roll. See my edit :P

    No. As it is, I'm freakin' drowning in current gen games I have bought retardedly cheap but haven't played yet. And with new info on both of these things coming out pretty much EVERY OTHER DAY*, it's a gamble at best.

    Here's an idea for next week's poll: "now that microsoft has dropped the obligatory kinect and reduced the price to match the PS4, what will you choose?".
    (okay, it may not be next week MS does that...but I'm at the point I'm willing to bet they'll do that before the release date).



    *and to say I lolheartedly predicted there'd be new info every week or so until release.

    I'll be getting the Ps4. But not exactly at launch, soon after though.

    I can't because I don't have the money for any of them.
    I'll wait a while until I get some cash flow and the PS4 has a larger library.

    I have no interest in buying a console at launch, so that's a "No" from me. Putting so many eggs into one basket this early is a terrible, terrible idea.

    Have a Wii U (still in the box, waiting for some games later this year) and might get a PS4 at some point, but not sure yet. If I get one, it definitely won't be at launch, so I voted "Happy with Wii U" for now.

    Because the Wii U can't be preordered? You know, since it's already been released?

    Huh. I actually didn't know there were still regions where the WiiU remains unreleased.

    that´s why i had to buy the USA version, but the BR Region-lock thing is the same as The USA one.

    I'm pretty happy with my Wii U and the future releases for it, I won't pre-order the PS4. Not because I don't want it, but because I don't trust systems at launch and I want to hold out until they fix all the bugs or makes a cheaper better version like they always do.
    And I really don't think I need to elaborate on how I feel about the XFlopONE at this point.
