    We now know what to expect of the next generation of consoles:
    - the Xbox One: an all in one multimedia center, just announced
    - the PS4: a powerful & compact PC for your living room
    - the Wii U: the Wii and the letter U together

    so what's it going to be? and why?

    I had tough time choosing between the PS4 and the PC, however, I've always been more of a console gamer so the PS4 won out.

    The Xbox One just looks like a really crappy PC. Might aswell just buy a PC and be better off. PS4 and WiiU are the better options right now. Although, we aren't fully aware of how the PS4 will work so we'll have to wait and see.

    I really don't want to miss some of the console exclusives.

    But this time around I will probably be getting a PS4.
    NONE of the new Xbox features interest me in the least, and the fee for used games? fuck you MS, you're not getting a $ from me this gen.

    I already own the Wii U.
    But between the PS4 and Xbox ONE, I am leaning more towards PS4.
    But if the PS4 doesn't interest me, then I just buying a better PC.

    It's too early for me to call right now.

    well....
    i´m going with the WII U for RHYTHM HEAVEN!!!!,
    I´M going with the PS4 for games like knack,gran turismo, uncharted and others
    and I´m going with the PC for Multiplatforms like FIFA and COD.

    Honestly, the new XBOX didnt felt so `` great´´ like some people were expecting, but i´m lookin´forward to play it with my friends that are going to buy it.

    I've already bought a Wii U. I'll be getting a PS4, because it has piqued my interest. Xbox One gets no love.

    Probs Wii U if Nintendo can get their act together and show me their gamessss.

    PS4, 50% powerful than Xbox one 1.8 gflops >> 1.2gflops, high speed memory Gddr5 8GB RAM, then shitty DDR3 for Xone. Not even saying always online, block used games and bullshit kinnect required.

    If not PS4, I will build a monster PC in a few years.

    This gen will be PC only until the Wiiu drops to ~150-200€ price in a few years - which is when I'll get one for local coop (smash bros, party games, kart and such).

    The other two consoles have nothing to offer.
    They cost as much as a PC but have less power, way smaller pools of available games, usage restrictions all around, bullshit gimmicks like voice commands, all that social bullshit they're rubbing into my face (really, a "share" button?) and nothing interesting in terms of games lineup.
    I never had a positive opinion of the Xbox (mostly games lineup) and since Square stopped making good games halfway through the PS2 era and most of the good Atlus titles were switched to the NDS the Playstation doesn't have any good games anymore as well.

    The only thing consoles in general have to offer nowadays that I care about is proper local multiplayer capabilities and the games fitting for that (Don't understand why anyone would see them as "core" gaming systems anymore, hell, handheld systems have more "core" games than the consoles do), and PS/Xbox have sucked balls in that department for the last two generations and I doubt it'll get better.

    I have a WiiU and will be getting a PS4, but not right away. Definitely wait a few years.

    Everything Microsoft said and did today just completely swayed me away. But even their practices with Xbox 360 convinced me not to buy from them again.

    I'd like to be able to take my console up to the cabin where there is NO internet at all in the area, and watch movies or play games. Hell, Microsoft was touting (though I'm pretty sure Sony said the same thing first) that the console is by gamers, for gamers. Why the fuck should I have to go online once every 24 hours if I'm playing a single player game? There's no reason for it. You're not downloading data or anything. On GTTV, the guy who made the controller was even doing a bit of bashing at the PS4 and WiiU saying "Gamers dont want to look at a second screen, it's too hard. Gamers also don't want a little touch pad either". To be honest, Microsoft totally fucked up this time around. The console itself (though I'd assume it's likely to change) even looks like my old VCR.

    My prediction is, they'll sell a couple million, then people will realize how dumb the thing is.
    There's rumor going around that the fee for the used game isn't a measly 5 bucks either.

    http://ca.ign.com/articles/2013/05/21/xbox-one-may-have-mandatory-game-installs

    So as I'm reading that, I'm thinking "wait, I go to EB Games, buy a used game for say 20 bucks, then I have to dish out another 40 to play the thing?"

    After seeing what MS and Sony have to offer, game-wise, I'm leaning towards just upgrading my PC and keeping on w/ the U.
