Xbox 3 all the way! Sony has proven with PS3 that they dont know anything about electronics anymore. Also MS know how to secure a great exclusivse from 3rd party developers (Gears, Saints Row, Mass Effect, all the DLCs).

Mass Effect...Saints Row? 0.0

LOL at #4!  Hey, at least you're honest.



Everyone needs to play Lost Odyssey! Any opposition to this and I will have to just say, "If it's a fight you want, you got it!"

I say Playstation. Honestly I think anyone would be limiting themselves by getting the nextbox (If current trends continue into next gen). The variety alone in Sony's exclusives are pretty much what do it for me, and I've never had a problem with any of my consoles.

Plus nobody knows, but if Microsoft pushes Kinect for their next system it could leave a sour taste in it's core fanbase.

All in all I say Sony. Great variety of exclusives, reliable hardware, and they seemed to be focused on their core fanbase the most.

 

EDIT: Sorry if this seems fanboyish, but that's how I feel.



I'm far most likely to buy a PS4. I originally didn't like Xbox because they were entering a market I thought couldn't support 3 consoles because of what happened to Sega. R.I.P. That and the large controllers, but once they released the new controller s and I got the Xbox as a gift I started liking it.

Then the 360 came out and XBL subscriptions became the norm as opposed to LAN. The RROD also warding me very far away from it as I wasn't even able to play with the friends I knew who bought one because they all broke down between Christmas and their return back to college. But it is mostly XBL that is holding me back from a MS console. I was a big Halo 2 fan and once Halo 3 came out, I was just disappointed and pretty done with the series (reach seemed good and so does Halo 4). Then the CoD craze started and that was multiplatform. I also hated Gears of War.

I couldn't afford a new console for a while, not till after I graduated in 2010 and by then it was PS or bust because it had no subscription fee, more exclusives, more classic games, internet browser, and I knew a few friends from college and I played their PS3s and really liked the XMB way more than the 360 blades or the new UI at the time (same with Metro, not a fan).

Microsoft has shown me very little that interests me and I would probably be more likely to buy a Wii U as Nintendo is looking like they are moving away from what they did with the Wii, despite how I consider their console is going to be far less powerful than the PS4.

Your questions:
1. Yes, RROD helped keep my away from 360
2. Yes but not purely. I like Sony as a company/publisher and their products. I have a built up investment in their gaming ecosystem.
3. Yes. There always is an initial warranty or I can get the thing fixed. What the system is will be obvious pre launch so unless there are concerns I am saving up money now for launch hardware.
4. I don't know...if it is more than $599 I will have to wait.
5. I don't really care about an extended warranty if the system is built properly. I can always buy a PS protection plan.



Before the PS3 everyone was nice to me :(

So, I'm looking to give Microsoft & Sony a fair chance at next-gen.  Previously, I was not happy with Sony due to constant malfunctions with my PS2 & terrible customer service support.  I went with Xbox 360 this gen, and I made sure to wait until the 3 year warranty was enacted before purchasing.  I was happy with Microsoft this gen -- even more than last gen.  Overall, I can say that I'm leaning towards Microsoft, but I'm seriously willing to wipe a clean slate for Sony this time around.  I'm not a fan of Kinect/Move controls -- I'm REALLY hoping this will not water down most future titles.

 

  1. Has the RROD, YLOD or any other malfunction forced you to abandon Microsoft/Sony for next-gen?
  2. Are you purchasing the console based upon pure fanboy/girl bias?  Be honest.
  3. Will you purchase the console at launch, or will you wait for the "beta testers" to jump the gun?
  4. What is your maximum budget to warrant a purchase?
  5. Could an extended warranty sway you from purchasing a competitor's console?

 

 


Xbox 720 Release Date Rumors: Source Spills on X-Surface Tablet, Specs, and Reveals Console Name

 

Microsoft has gone toextraordinarylengths to secure the secrecy of its next-generation console project, but it appears as if insiders are beginning to crack. Pocket-lint spoke to an anonymous source close to the Redmond-based company, who suggested that the "The majority of information leaked by many sources is true."

First off, don't expect the Xbox 720 moniker to stick. The new system will reportedly ditch numbers and revert back to its original branding with the simple title of 'Xbox.' The source notes that a 7-inch "X-Surface" tablet will launch alongside the console as a part of the "X" series of devices which interact with the console. The site explains, "On launch, we are informed, it will be able to access games, music and video hubs of the new Xbox, but will not have any apps of its own."

Concerning the machine's specs, the source confirms an eight-core 1.9GHz processor and a 800MHz GPU. Pastrumors implicated an 8800 series GPU, 8GB RAM, and a 640GB hard-drive as well.

Next-Gen Features

Pocket Lint adds, "A couple of the features of multitasking explained to us include video calling in games (with users able to determine which corner of the screen to place the feed), and the ability to take screengrabs to save to hard drive or SkyDrive."

Video calling will likely use a built in Skype app, as Microsoft now owns the popular video conferencing company. Sources tell CVG that Microsoft is in the process of "consolidating all their communications technology [around Skype]...You might jump to the conclusion that we'll see asynchronous voice and video messages in the next-gen Xbox Live." The site even dug up a job posting for Skype's UK offices, calling for a user interface designer to work on integrating Skype into the next Xbox and expanding its functionality in the living room. The popular video service's involvement in Microsoft's console strategy is hardly a well-kept secret.

Back at CES 2013, Microsoft gave us a glimpse of Kinect 2.0, a device which could conceivably ship within the next-gen Xbox. The feature on display, known as 'IllumiRoom,' reads the shape of a room and dynamically creates projections to extend the usable display beyond the edges of your TV.

So When Does it Come Out?

Analyst Colin Sebastian of Rober W. Baird recently told Game Informer that the Redmond-based company would likely reveal its new Xbox at a standalone event by the end of March, and cost between $350 and $400 when it eventually launches. Most industry veterans expect the 'Xbox 720' to launch in Fall of 2013 alongside the Playstation 4.

Mass Effect...Saints Row? 0.0

Saints Row 1 is a X360 exclusive. SR2 is a direct continuation of SR1, so I would not like to play it without knowing the story from the original game.
I know that now you can play ME1 on the  PS3, but this generation is over and I dont care about that after 7 years.



nope i'm all in on PS4. the last of us and Beyond lead me to believe Sony will continue supporting new ip

Well since this generation is over I don't care that SR 1 is a 360 exclusive. Plus I can play it on my PC.
