    I'm going to say Sony because they wound the most cohesive in what they want the PS4 to be and they want to achieve it. They've clearly listened to the criticism they received regarding the PS3 and that's been evident in how they've managed the PS4. They want it easy for third parties, they want to make it 'open' to attract a wide array of content, they've improved the controller, they've got nearly all of their studios on next gen content, the price is good. The Playstation leadership just sound really cohesive which makes me feel they know what they're doing.

    For that I reckon in this insanely early stage they'll sell the most hardware.

    ...

    Okay, okay, laughing time is over. Nintendo has horribly squandered their lead at this point, and from all the goodwill Sony's garnered (and the absolute pounding Microsoft is taking), I'd guess that the PS4 will come out on top this generation.

    Of course, anything can change, so we'll have to see how it all plays out.

    Nice idea, let's see how long the 'temp will keep this up :) I think Sony will win, I really liked Microsoft the past generation, but it's not looking good for them at all. I wonder if this generation will kill the Xbox as we know it?

    Honestly, I can't decide between WiiU or PS4.

    Nintendo has only sold a couple million units so far, but if there's anything to go by, if they smarten up they can gain a whole lot of speed, like the PS3 did late in it's life.

    However, right now, PS4 seems to be getting a good amount of build up and might come bursting out of the gates. But they could get dumb. I'm gonna say WiiU just because I can't choose both and I believe the console will boom.

    I would say Sony, but I have a feeling Nintendo has some trick they'll pull out of their ass and boost sales. MS = lol no.

    Sony is more like it in the near future ...but in the long run, I guess Nintendo has a high chance of getting more traction actually ...more affordable, bigger age range, and probably will have more games in the future (and more dev's support when the sells start to get better).. ..so yeah, voting Nintendo for the long run.

    I say nintendo will sell more, because they don't have those annoying "security measures" of the other companies, i'd hate to be on-line to play, also i like to have control over what system I play my games, not "if you play on another console, you'll have to pay a fee" i hope microsoft blow up and set an example to the other companies. if not, i hope all the game industry die, because i'm getting tired of this shit.

    don't get me wrong, i like video games the way it is, put the game and play, i play video games since atari (off course I had my atari when genesis and snes lead the market), and the next generation seems to be the worse for traditional games (maybe you are some punkass that have good internet connection and don't give a damm about collecting games, that's not my case, I want to play my games on the console I want, it could be my console or a friend console, I don't want to have my game registered with a single console and don't want to depend on internet to play, even Steam that is an online game shop does not require internet to play most of games, the internet in Brazil is a shit and even if it was not, I don't want to depend on it to play.

    I'm gonna have to go with Sony.

    Following past trends that Nintendo systems have followed ever since real, non-Sega competition came into play, the Wii was certainly an anomaly. Nintendo won't see that kind of success again, at least not with the Wii U, with how their systems generally sell. The only way the Wii U will pick up is if they cut the price because at $350, the Wii U will be completely slaughtered by the competition. As it stands, in a few years time, developers may be hard pressed to do better than lazy ports to the Wii U, if they're worth it at all, when considering the gap in hardware between the PS4, One, and then the Wii U. When you consider that supposedly the PS4 is so much more powerful than the One that differences will be noticeable out of the gate, that doesn't exactly bode well for the Wii U, being weaker than both. With that said, I don't feel the first party will continue to provide any sort of pull that will move more than maybe 30 million to 40 million systems on the outside throughout the life of the Wii U, and that's only if the third parties don't entirely abandon it. The PS4 has established itself as new, different, appealing, easy to access, minimal online fees (as nice as free is, if $5 a month gets better service + free stuff, sign me up), powerful, and the best choice for a developer looking to really do something amazing with the tools at their disposal.

    I feel that Sony will get the third parties, the majority of the third party exclusives, and will ultimately sell far better than the competition. I think the PS4 will place itself among the PS1 and PS2 and break the 100 million sales mark, placing Sony back on the throne where really, it belongs.

    Don't buy the Xbox One. Wii U or PS4 don't require internet nor are games tied to an account.

    I think that what you meant was something like: "Microsoft online and DRM policies stinks, and for that it should be hit hard ...other companies should then use it as a example and not follow Microsoft steps, otherwise, the game industry would be dead to me."

    right?

    and yeah, you sentence was really misleading... choose better words next time..

    If you have money, or at least an i7 with 16gb and, lets say, a GeForce 660 GTX or something above it, you dont need nothing from this generation.

    As I have only a Core 2 Duo, 2gb with an 8400 series, and few bucks, I would go with PS4, and I'll miss forza 5 forever.
