what about those who want one but ..
A)it isn't out yet in our region of the world
B)will get both,but need time to get the pennies together and when we do have our nice new shiny next gen consoles we will drop the current(last)gen consoles like yesterdays diapers*

Yes, you definitely belong.  I too am looking to have more pennies together so that my purchase does not make my bank account and my wife look at me like I'm insane.

My future wife is the one buying it all for me slywink  Do I belong here?  I still don't have one until tonight

I'm Kronovan, a man that used to buy every console for his family, but I've done a fine job of weaning myself from the habit. I'm a mucho Halo fan, so I'm sure I'll pull the trigger on an Xone by Fall 2015. Of course I'll keep playing Halo 3, Halo CE Anni, Halo Reach, Halo Wars and Halo 4, because I can't seem to go more than a month without diving in. I acquired a gaming laptop and PC this past Spring and that'll be my focus platform for at least the 1st half of this gen. I was already running Steam Big Screen on my older gaming rig and HDTV, but now PC play has eclipsed my 360 and Wii play.  My son has his own little gaming den in a small alcove off our living room and we're in the process of setting my daughter up with her own space. She's really more interested in playing PC games with local co-op in our den though, so I'll probably have to let her add some feminine decor to that area.  icon_confused  LAN play has been a big part of my gaming life since the late 90's, so our current and evolving home setup makes a lot of LAN play possible.

OOOoooooO! Is this the bargain hunters PS3 group? Cause I can't wait to snag a PS3 now!  nod

Hah, this is probably what this group will lead me to - rebuying a PS3. Cause there's no way I'll ever get mine back from my nephew. slywink  I've been eyeing those snazzy Azurite NHL 14 PS3 bundles, but they haven't price dropped in my city yet. Once they're <= $200 I'll pull the trigger. Needless to say, with having only had my previous PS3 for about a year, there's lots of games to catch up on. Just consider that 80% of the AAA titles on other players PS3 lists are on my list too.

You are probably surprised to see me in here, but I'm temporary in this group.

I got a PS4 at launch.  It blue striped me after 10 minutes of use.  I sent it back, they 'repaired it', and it's still broken.  I'm waiting for a replacement console that should arrive Monday-ish.

I didn't get an XB1, though I've been trying.  I ordered from Amazon and there was a problem with my cart.  By the time they got it fixed, the console was sold out and I'm now trying to find one on the shelf. 

So yea.....not a lot of luck here so far. 

In the mean time, PC MASTER RACE REPRESENT!

I may pick up a 360 at some point.  I'll take a look at the next gen once the next-next gens come out.  I'm on the trailing edge, baby.

I'm here basically through laziness. I don't preorder, and I don't wander into stores that might have one very often by chance (NYC, so it's not like I'm ever in a big-box like Target or Wal-Mart). I figure after Christmas it'll become worth poking my head into Best Buy to take a peek.

Edit: Alternatively, I could have been on my evening constitutional and walked past a Best Buy with an Xbone 'In Stock' notice taped to the door... I'll just quietly see myself out...

This is the first new generation that I am taking a brief pass on.  I've decided to try out that "fiscally responsible" thing my parents tried to teach me back when I was a kid. I own Playstation Visa card and an Amazon Visa card, so I'm going to do my best to hold out and collect enough points to get free consoles.

I'm charging EVERYTHING to these cards: Mortgage, car payment, groceries, gas, etc. With the triple and double point bonuses, you can rack up savings fairly quickly, and I make sure to pay off the principle before the end of the month.

Two of my friends already had their PS4's break. I'm confident both companies will be hard at work hammering out the hardware and software bugs over the next few months, so I'm also using that rationalization.

but I'm a hardcore gamer, so the wait is agonizing.  mad

The last console I bought was a used PS2 so I will forever be in this group as I just don't think the damn things are worth it while I have a computer to play games on.

After the launch hype period for each console - during which I was tempted to get one or the other just because of SHINY!  NEW!  LATEST STYLES and COLORS!

Now I'm more looking forward to playing the games in my Steam backlog - having a blast with XCOM: Enemy Within, and getting excited to go back to Skyrim after 8+ months off and try the DLC packs I've been picking up with my new monitor/video card.  Woot!

Remember the old days when consoles just "worked".  Those damn console elitist would mock PC gamers with cries of "PC gaming is dead" ,  "PC games are full of bugs and hassles to get to work properly, we just pop it in and play".  I sure do.  I laugh at them now.  (Nelson) "HA, HA" (Nelson)
