Steam + iOS/Android + Maybe WiiU


Steam and IOS arent consoles.


Are gaming systems. Having a reductionist approach is what is destroying this industry.


Multiconsole owners is the name of the topic. PC's are open formats which arent dedicated to gaming and neither are ios devices.


Semantics. Should we consider PS4/XBox1/WiiU as Consoles, or are they really multimedia/gaming centers? Living room all in one devices?


Gaming devices, but Microsoft is a rather questionable one since they tend to swerve to the PC end of things. PC's aren't created for gaming unless people buy them specially made or build them and even then its still not their primary process via os. They still fulfill more purposes than an console could. Entertainment and games doesnt make a console a PC.

We have different views then. 8th generation systems are much more than consoles, the same than smartphones are much more than phones. I'm sure that there are lots of users that will buy them for much more things than gaming, and for a big chunk of people, gaming is not going to be the first thing they will do with them.



Probably WiiU+Ps4



In terms of next gen consoles -- i will get the ps4, wii u and the xone. Will upgrade my gaming pc while i am i t. Have both handhelds and the current gen systems.



Seems no one goes to get XBOX ONE. XBOX ONE will be dead on arrival. Congrats, MS....

Pc, ps4, xone, wii u, 3ds, vita... Don't want to miss out on anything ever

PSOne



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)     

    

Got a retro room? Post it here!

Currently I have a Wii U and X360 connected to my TV, and a gaming PC. I may get a PS4 next year, or a new PC, not sure yet. XOne is about 95% ruled out as an option, but I change my mind on brand preference all the time. Wii U's a great system on its own so far. Going forward I may want an additional console (or better PC) for 3rd party content, or because the Wii U's abilities become dated. For this year the 3rd party games I want - Watch_Dogs, COD, AC4, probably Destiny - will be on Wii U. After that, if support begins to lag or the PS4 versions begin to distance themselves in terms of performance, I will look at other options. I'm watching PS4 closely to see if what it offers interests me. So far what I've seen looks good, but not "must have". I expect titles will get better and better for it. I'm also watching pricing stuctures for the new consoles and their associated online services. I like a good price for the machine and free online. If it becomes expensive I may as well just go all out on a PC.



WiiU/PS4/PC/3DS



 

Currently have a 3DS, WiiU, 360, and PS3.

In the future, may pick up PS4 and Vita.

Likely will never get XBO.
