I am in the any or all of the above personally. But I almost definitely will be getting the XBOX 360 and the PS3. Nintendo lost me at some point.

I'll end up with all of them, but one or two I'll wait for a price drop on.

I am sure I will get all of them, just like this generation.

In order of my excitement level:

1) Xbox 360
2) PS3
3) Revolution

Yeah, I know I'm in for the 360.  The Sony one looks nice on paper, but the controller is really not flying with me, I'm not convinced it won't cost an arm and a leg, and I don't trust Sony to make a system that doesn't break.

The Nintendo one is a higher chance just on principle, but it's way too early to tell with them.

The only one I'm likely to skip is the Revolution.

Nintendo hasn't had anything to interest me in the entire span of the Gamecube's life, at least not anything that wasn't on one of the other systems.

The exception was Resident Evil 4, but that's showing up on the PS2...

In all likelihood:

Xbox360- After first price drop, given it's got multiple, good RPG's for it

PS3- Absolutely.  However, depending on the price, I might wait for a price drop there too.

Revolution - Who knows?  I have next to no interest in it.  Maybe The gamecube will be >$30 like the Dreamcast now, and I'll finally pick the Gamecube up then.

For the record, I only own a PS2 now.  And it's NEVER had a problem, even with the many 6-8+ hour gaming sessions I've had on it.

The Revolution is the only must buy  for me, but I may get the others after a price drop.

Where's the none option?

If I get a next gen it will be several years after they've come out...just like i did with the X.

I would consider getting the PS3 over the xbox 360 but the controller shuts that door.  

Besides, I have always liked the xbox over the ps2.

Once again, I'll wait until I can feel that controller before I make judgements.  I don't mind its looks, heck I found the dual shock controllers strange when I first saw them.

I voted only for the 360 but only because I know I'll get that one the first day it's out.  I need to know a lot more about the Revolution (or a Zelda game of course) and I'll need to know a lot more about PS3 games, and even then will probably want a big price drop before I get them.

I have little doubt I'll end up with them all eventually, though - I mean, just look at my track record, LOL! Tongue

First the PS3 (it has the games I want), then a bit later once the prices go through the first cut, I'll buy the Revolution.

The XBox 360 barely interests me at all.

I will probably eventually get the Xbox 360, but there is plenty of life still in my current Xbox and it satisfies my console gaming needs.

I never got a PS1 or PS2, so I doubt I will get the PS3.  Same with Nintendo, though the new one looks pretty slick.

The only consoles I have owned are Pong, Atari 2600, Dreamcast, and Xbox.  Tongue

Xbox 360 (only)

At one time I had a Gamecube, PS2, and the Xbox. But these days I no longer have the time (let alone the ducats) to support more than 1 console..., and my PC habit.

I was watching G4's E3 coverage and Adam Sessler nailed my problem with the Xbox 360. Flat out the MTV special, and the Microsoft E3 presentation (complete with a STAGED crowd) alienated me. I'm a hard core gamer, Xbox owner, and Microsoft pulled all the stops out to say "We do not care about you as a customer. You aren't cool"

Sony, which people are prasing for having the best show is back to its old tricks of lying. The amazing part is, at this point, no one seems to care. On G4 again, they knew the games were all pre-rendered and virtually impossible but hey AT LEAST IT WAS ABOUT GAMES!  To me, its all smoke and mirrors...again, and Sony has managed to make their controller even worse.

Nintendo apparently is just coping Apple. GBA mini and a gamecube mini is really what they had to show. Which is nice and if the price points are nice, all the better. I could seem myself picking those systems up but I'm just not excited about anything they have

I'm a major hardware whore (hey, I bought a 3do...when it was NEW) but when the most excitting thing for me is the annoucement that fucking Lemmings is coming to the PSP, something is very very wrong.

Right now I would rank them:
ps3
Revolution
Xbox 360.

So because MS was trying to appeal to a new crowd of gamers to broaden thier customer base they have alienated you?  I don't get it...hard core gamers are a very small percentage of the customer base... larger customer base for MS means more games developed which means a better overal gaming experience with the XBOX 360.  I am glad they are trying to draw in new gamers, and the E3 info has solidified my decision to already preorder the 360.
