"What will be your second platform of choices for next gen after Switch (outside PC/smartphones/cloud gaming)"

Trick question imo :p
Switch belongs to the current gen, of PS4/Xb1.

That said... a PS5.
I was pretty happy with what the PS4 had, so expecting more of the same with the PS5.

Someday in a very far future I plan to buy a PS5.

All of them because console wars are moronic and im not about to miss some of the best games because im "married" to a brand - which is in itself moronic. But who knows, maybe economy will crash next year.

Right, because the only reason people don't buy every console is because they're married to brands.

That is the only possible reason, definitely.

I'm sure of it.

Correct. Im glad you get it. 



The xbox sx will be the one I get first, then sometime down the road after price drops, the ps5.



I wish there were an option that said..."Ain't nobody got time for that." Seriously, I have a hard enough time keeping up on one platform, the thought of owning another console gives me so much anxiety. I just bought 9 indie games yesterday since they were all on sale and I had $100 on my eshop account after Christmas. And I only did that because I knew I'd regret it when all those games went full price again.

Anyway, if I did have to get another console and somehow ended up with enough time to justify playing...I'd probably go with the Playstation since it's the most likely place to get to play a few updated versions of games I liked on the PS2. Of course, Sony has forsaken those fans in favor of the more hardcore XBox crowd of that era and that of the 360, so it'd just likely make me sad and regret my purchase.

I'm leaning towards Xbox because I think the Gamepass is a good deal. On the other hand, I really like Spider-man which is pretty much the only exclusive I care about on either console unless Microsoft puts out a decent Banjo game. Of course, if the switch gets decent third party support, I may not buy any.



Not sure at this point maybe PS5 in future but the PC/Switch combination has been immense to the point my PS4's playtime has vastly been cut down.



I don't have a desire to buy new gaming hardware for quite awhile as I've bought quite a bit lately. I've rarely bought Sony platforms at all, and the XB One X and Switch are all I need for the foreseeable future.

If anything, what I might do is get a new spruced up gaming PC in 2 or 3 years, and just play gamepass stuff on there in addition to new PC games. My desktop was bought in late 2012, and while it's still decent, it's starting to show its age. To me it would make more sense to simply have the powerful all-in-one machine (which would be able to play XB games anyway) rather than the Series X which is basically a lesser gaming PC anyway. I'm also not crazy about that big, rectangular design. Plus my cousin, who's a big Xbox guy, will probably shell out for that anyway so I can just check it out at his place.

I don't completely rule out Series X, but it would probably be 4-5 years down the line for me if anything. May just skip the entire next gen on the home console front and stick with Switch/One X/PC

The poll is missing the "None" option.

That and the switch isn't next generation, it's current (9th) gen. Also, it shouldn't include rumours (xbox s).

Yes, the switch belongs to the current gen but the ps4 and x1 aren't a part of it. And let's not derail things after this.
