    The Countdown Begins.....

    Alright guys, I'm stuck. The day has finally come for me. Today I am done with my PS3. I've finished my last game and now the calendar watching begins for the PS4.

    Today I reached that point where I'm happy with my time in GTA5. Many people will be like WTF?! It's only been out a matter of weeks! Well I understand that, and I'm not going to completely box it up and sell it, I will dabble in a few more side things like arms trafficking and general mad chaos chases for fun. But I'm done. I've completed the story, many side missions etc. GTA Online is good fun when it works but it mighty fragile.

    Now comes why I'm not buying or interested in any more current gen games. Firstly I want Fifa14, I have a battle with my wallet everyday to prevent from buying it as I'm waiting for the PS4 version. I want to go into it fresh. I'm more of a career mode person so I'd hate to get seasons in building my team to then start again. I am getting Fifa14, Killzone Shadow Fall, Watch Dogs and Call of Duty Ghosts for PS4 launch. (Drive Club PS+ edition and Blacklight 1st day downloads)

    So I'm wondering are any other people on here in the same boat? Are you not interested in Beyond or GT6 and just waiting for PS4? I'm trading my PS3 and GTA5 in the day before launch day as there's no need to keep my PS3. I'm not a very collector-y person. I love getting the experience and enjoyment then moving on. Kinda like the cinema, I prefer to watch my films there and rarely buy on blu ray unless it's an absolute favourite of mine.

    Also I'm not getting rid of my PS3 right now because A) I'll be mucking about on GTA5 for small periods of time and B) I have netflix stuff to watch

    Nope, too many PS3 games coming even if I was interested in PS4 at this point. I never sell my consoles though and still play my PS2.

    I'll be keeping my PS3 for a while at least. There is still plenty of use for it with PS+.

    I'm very much digging the share button on ps4. I find myself saying "oh that was so cool, wish I could share this on my profile" or "what a great goal, shame I can't show it off directly on my profile"

    I'm not a fan of any of the games like Dark Souls 2, Beyond etc. Watch Dogs, Division, Destiny and The Crew have really caught my eye and impressed me though

    Also I'm not getting rid of my PS3 right now because A) I'll be mucking about on GTA5 for small periods of time and B) I have netflix stuff to watch
    Thank you, I forgot Blacklight was PSN, yay!

    Sort've in the same boat, I guess. Last game I'll be purchasing for the PS3 will most likely be Final Fantasy X HD Collection. I imagine I'll be getting a PS4 for Christmas, with what game(s) I have no idea. In the mean time FIFA 14 and GTA will tide me over.

    Yeah, ironically it's the year that actually warrants the purchase since it's quite different gameplay-wise to previous iterations!

    Early indications are that it's not much different, just a little more bloom or something. Still, it'd obviously be better in any case, so it's probably worth waiting. Finally got into Ultimate Team, made a German team, it's looking good for my first try!

    If you can afford it.....keep your PS3 and still play the games you want. Except FIFA. I completely understand not wanting to buy it twice.

    You can always trade it in, but once you do...you'll have to buy it back if you want to play any of those games.....or wait an extra long time for them to be put on PSN.

    I feel the same as the op for the same reasons. I always trade up towards the next gen console and never look back.
