I am not, I just got a Wii U and the current line-ups for Xbox One and PS4 don't attract me.
I will wait till holiday 2015 to purchase my second console and take advantage of more mature line-ups and price cuts.

I'll wait for either a white Xbox One or a price-cut. Won't be buying it 'till then.

 

I did, however, pre-order Dead Rising 3. Guess I can look at the case until I buy the hardware.

Why would you buy the game when you have no immediate plans of buying the console? That's not smart spending. =P

 

OT: Low chance of buying any consoles this holiday season. Maybe if a wad of cash fell out of the sky and landed in my pocket.



I have all the current consoles, and am eye balling the Wii U due to the new Mario and Wind Waker HD.

I'm trying to resist keeping one of my PS4 or Xbox One pre orders vs. reselling. But not sure the exclusives really matter enough to me just yet.

I can wait to play Ryse and don't care about racing games (Forza)

I can wait to play Infamous and never really cared for the play/pace of Killzone.

So I might just wait till next year for PS4 (and some more exclusives).

And pet the pretty box?

I did the same thing with DVD's.  I found a great deal on one I knew I wanted, and bought it before I got my player.  But it was only a month or less.

Tell me a funny joke!

You know, this is something that weighs on me - being a multiple console owner. This last generation I opened myself up to so many games but had so little time to actually play them. Is it better to have a wide selection of games, but not play them deeply, or better to have a narrow selection, but really absorb them? I don't know the answer.

Anyway, on topic, I'm not getting PS4 or X1 because of the high costs and because of my huge backlog.


That is a good question.  I've been tearing through my backlog as fast as I can and it is fun but i'm not able to immerse.  I can't answer either.  That almost deserves it's own topic.

Exclusive Day One bullshit edition that only serves to tease diehard fans of the franchise - like me - into preordering the damn thing.

There has never been a GOTY edition in any Dead Rising game. In fact, if we ignore Off The Record, I'd say Dead Rising is one of Capcom's least milked franchises. (Two had microtransactions though).

Maybe the "exclusive" content end up in sale after months, which is possible. But I'm also getting a cool T-Shirt (for me), and that's purely exclusive for the Day One edition.
