Forums - Gaming Discussion - If you're not buying a Next-Gen Console at launch, what will make you do so?

Any particular game release/event/peripheral/price etc. that will put you over the edge and just buy a console?

In my case, I always buy when the next generation Gran Turismo arrives. Which means I'm probably getting my PS4 in like.. 4 years or something, unless a prologue comes out early.

MGSV or FFXV being launch games would be enough for me to buy at launch. But for now im waiting on there release dates

KH3, FFXV, MGSV, or a next gen Tales of game.  There are probably more but that's what comes to mind right now.



If the diploma that I should be getting at the end of April was somehow granted to me before the release of the next-gen consoles, I would get one (not the Xbox One) at launch.

 

Edit: Post below reminded me that Wii U is part of this. If that's the case, then I already bought a next-gen console at launch day.

You don't think it will drop 100-200$ in the next 3-5 years? I kind of actually want one, but part of me just doesn't value that price point it's at. I want it for split-screen fun with my younger cousins so I need 4 Wii controllers/pro controllers=150+dollars and comes out to like 500$(Tax included in the end).

Well, your first condition is impossible because those games are first / second party, and they require far more power. Your second condition would mean that Nintendo would rather discontinue the thing because their balance sheets would be bleeding red.

So no, you're never buying one :)

Once they stop support for the HD twins... most things that will come out on PS4/Xbone will see a PS360 release.. if they want to make profit out of it..

I was walking down along the street and I heard this voice saying, "Good evening, Mr. Dowd." Well, I turned around and here was this big six-foot rabbit leaning up against a lamp-post. Well, I thought nothing of that because when you've lived in a town as long as I've lived in this one, you get used to the fact that everybody knows your name.
