So, I'm not sure if a lot of members here plan on buying one of these consoles at launch or soon after, but I wanted to make a point as to why it's probably not a good idea unless you really have nothing else to use your monies on. Now, I initially planned on making a longer post with lots of stuff to talk about, but I figured most of that was already known or just not needed to reiterate. Now, something I have noticed, was the fact that there's like nothing coming out for these consoles in terms of boxed releases for quite some time after launch, and even then, it's like not even five games. Lets looks at the upcoming releases, shall we? December, January, February, March, April, May Xbox 360: Fable Anniversary, Titanfall PS3: Gran Turismo 6, BlazBlue Both: Thief, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, Lightning Returns Final Fantasy 13, Dark Souls 2, South Park Stick of Truth, Dying Light Earth Defense Force 2025, Yaiba Ninja Gaiden Z, Watch Dogs, Wolfenstein, Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes PS4: Infamous Second Son, Planetside 2 Xbox One: Titanfall Both: Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes, Watch Dogs, Dying Light, Thief, Wolfenstein The New Order, The Elder Scrolls Online So, that means that the PS4 only has one exclusive coming out until May with Planetside 2 being on PC already, the Xbox One shares it's big game with the PC and with that Xbox 360, and only 5 games are multi platform across all consoles. Most of those games are only on current gen. With this said, why would anyone be in a hurry to buy a new console? Now, the chance of a lot of the multi platform games being better than the current gen ones is very likely, but at this point the games are going to be basically identical aside from better performance possibly and higher res. Which basically means unless you're really into good looking games (PC has most of these too, so...) you're buying one of these next gen consoles for the launch exclusives and one big exclusive within the first half of next year. Why would anyone want one now unless you're a really hardcore gamer?
