Alright, let's find out how the gaming habits of the charterz are changing next gen.

The question is simple: For your primary console (console for which you buy most software), are you switching from one console family to another, or staying within the same family?

For example, if you had a PS3 as your primary console this gen, are you switching over to the Xbox One or staying within the Playstation family by getting the PS4? Just to note, you can have ALL 3 platforms this gen and next gen, but we are talking about your PRIMARY console, and switching that. Your primary console being the one for which you buy the most software. Also, what's the reason for switching or staying the same?

For me personally, I had all 3 consoles this gen but 360 was my primary. I am switching over to PS4 next gen. This is mainly because I got my PS3 rather late this cycle, but when I did get it I realised that it had the same great 3rd party games as 360 (which were what I was mostly getting), but also a wide and consistent variety of first party offerings and the PS+ service is IMO the best gaming service ever conceived. So PS4 it is for me.

What about you?

My primary console was a PS3 and I'm switching for a Wii U. Maybe at the end of the gen I will get a PS4.

Strictly Consoles:

Primary has been Nintendo for two generations and then Sony for three generations and looks to continue to be four with everything I have seen

Secondary has been non existent for one generation, Sega for one generation and Nintendo for three generations and seems likely to be four as well

Tertiary has been Microsoft for two generations and maybe again, but could become nonexistent after past year

owning all consoles -> only on Wii U

Sticking with Xbox. I go where Halo goes. No being fickle here.


Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)
