Whenever there's an exclusive I really want. If that's at launch then that's when I'll get it. If the BC is good that may also motivate me to adopt early as I skipped the Pro.

I guess this is a poll for just Sony fans on the site, rather than to get polling data on the whole site, because you didn't include a "not going to buy it" option. I supposed the bottom one is the closest thing.

There have been a number of factors, over the years, for why I have never bought Playstation hardware. But there is one reason, above any, of why I refuse to buy their devices. I cannot stand their controllers. They feel awkward in my hands. And they aren't the only console maker that creates uncomfortable controllers, I hated the N64 controller with a passion and now, in retrospect, I cannot stand Wiimotes either. I also hated the original xbox controller, and I'm not terribly fond of the Joycons (though the portability factor outweighs my dislike, and when it's docked I play on the pro controller which is great). But with Sony, they consistently make controllers I hate, whereas other companies are hit and miss. I hated the PS1-PS4 controllers and I'm fairly certain the PS5 will be similar to their past, which is great for people that like it but I just can't get over my hatred of how awkward it feels in my hand. But who knows, maybe they will update it enough to get me liking it.

You'll be happy to know that there are over a dozen different controllers for the PS4, so you can go buy one now xD



If there is an absolutely killer launch game I might cave. Otherwise I'm waiting for the inevitable Pro version.



Depends on when the price hits $400.

If Demon's Souls Remake is a launch title, I might get it on day 1 (never played the original), which would be my first time ever for a piece of hardware.

If not, then I will wait for TLoU Factions 2, or whatever From Software is working on, or a pricecut before considering.



In between mid 2023 to late 2024, when the good Japanese games come out like Yakuza & Gravity Rush.



Steam ID: Quakecore89 / GOG: AMDFX89 / Xbox Live Tag: QUAKEcore89 / NS: SW-7937-5976-6855

Current PC: (Ryzen 7 3700X/32GB 3200MHz DDR4 RAM/RTX 3080(placeholder)/Crucial 250GB SATA M.2+Kingston 1TB SSD+Corsair 1TB NVMe)

Probably preordering again. Unless there are like zero good games at launch. Then I might not even buy it at all.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

It is not the controller son, it is Sony hate. You can buy so many controllers these days and adaptors where you can use other platform controllers.



I'll be replacing my PS4 day one.
