    Why I wont be even looking into getting a nex gen console for sometime....

    All of these games will be on my current gen system...

    Splinter Cell: Blacklist
    XCOM
    GTA V
    Arkham Origins
    Battlefield 4
    Diablo 3
    Watch Dogs
    Call of Duty Ghosts
    Assassins Creed IV
    Castlevania Lord of the Shadows 2
    South Park Stick of Truth

    Yes, I know some of these games will be on next gen consoles as well, but, dam, I really am more compelled by this collection than anything either of the new consoles are launching with.

    You saw that watchdogs trailer with the lesser graphical settings right? I wouldn't be surprised if that is how the game looks on current gen consoles. And I wouldn't be surprised if the current gen versions of the above games are quite lacking in the graphics department compared to the X1/PS4 versions.

    From that list I'm personally only interested in that isn't on PS4 - XCOM (played through most of it.))

    The only game that I really have left to purchase as a PS3 only game will be The Last of Us. Hoping to see it on sale come the holidays. The reset that I want (about 1/2 the list from above) I'll be getting on the PS4

    Was thinking the same thing.

    A better looking version of Ass Creed 4, Watch Dogs and Ghosts are not compelling enough reasons for me to shell out extra money on what is effectively going to be the same game with a graphical tweak.

    Had these games been only next gen, or if these other games weren't coming out I might have opted in, but I'd rather spend my money on South Park, Batman, GTA and Splinter cell frankly.

    Correction, I already have spent my money on Splinter Cell.

    Obviously they wouldn't be next gen only, the developers/publishers want to maximize sales.

    I'm just saying, I would feel weird buying the "lesser" version of the game.

    But the question is, if you don't jump in to the next gen now, when will you? I don't see a pricedrop for at least a year for the X1, probably 2 for the PS4.

    This.

    And your 360 will blow up if it doesn't detect a nextgen pre-order if you've purchased a cross-gen title. As per sources.

    I guess you got to ask yourself are there other games coming out that are going to be next gen only and coming soon (maybe not a ton on launch day.) That are going to push you to buy a Next Gen Console prior to price drops (which will probably be 1yr away at best.) In which case you needlessly play a bunch of games that while the store and play is mostly (some gameplay will be enhanced on these games) the same but at significantly lower performing graphics.

    I'd say if you can't afford it, then you can't afford it and that's a different issue all together.

    You bring a great point Mynd. I'm trying to ignore it so that I jump into next-gen on launch day. lol

    Lets put it this way, for me to even contemplate a next gen console its going to need a few things.

    1/ At least 3-5 games that knock my socks off

    2/ These games aren't available on the current gen

    3/ There aren't 3-5 games that I want to play on the current gen console.

    Right now, and likely through till March next year, I'll be more than happy with whats coming out on the current gen systems.

    Games that DO interest me from next gen are all a fair way away from release.

    I asked my self, what games would I pick up if I bought one, and I couldn't come up with more than 1 game that I couldn't just pick up for current gen system. (Shadowfall and Forza on each system).

    I agree with mynd. Why spend $400 on a new console when that same $400 could be spent on the games? And besides, these games are just current gen games with DX11 add-ons. Pretty much what PC has been getting for a long time, and that obviously wasn't enough to entice gamers to upgrade to PC. So I doubt these next gen consoles would be any more enticing if it is these multi-platform games you are looking forward to.

    Mynd definitely does bring up a good point. Which is certainly why I'm taking the approach that F34R is.

    I'm letting my 'WANT' for the new things takeover. Plus, there's enough, i my mind and the way I rationalise things, to sway me in getting the nextgen.

    I completely understand where mynd is coming from though.

    We can all come back with "Well yeah, then stop going to Asos (or some other online women-focused) retailer!".

    I'm definitely jumping on the next gen on day one. This gen has pretty much run its course for me for the most part (except for certain gems like TLOU). But I do understand where mynd is coming from and theres nothing wrong with waiting. The next gen consoles will still be there waiting when hes ready.

    Um aren't you investing in the console you buy? So does it matter if you get it now or later? That's how I look at it.

    Can't really blame anyone for wanting to wait a while. So much good stuff still coming for this gen consoles. That's the reason I'm only gonna go with one for a while. That will be xbox-one. I still have Xbox-360, ps3, and my powerful gaming PC I bought earlier this year.

    I still got tons of games for PS3 and PC backlogs (no thanks to Steam sales).

    So I have no problem waiting up to a year to get next gen.

    are the titles I'll be playing on current gen. I'm making the jump to the ps4 when Infamous comes out.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    Many of those games I wouldn't want on current gen because you know they'll be inferior versions. But yeah this gen still has some life in it. I might get Castlevania LOS 2 and probably Dark Souls 2 unless they announce PS4 versions.

    True, this software line-up may keep current gen gamers from crossing over. GTA 5 could really damage next gen console sales. M
