You can all (was anyone actually not going to?) buy it again with no worries.

I'm not going to worry until the final specs are released and the pre-orders start to ramp up towards the end of the year. Until then all this press is just to stir sh*t up and get people talking about the next gen consoles.

Only if it allows used games to be played on it. I can deal with everything else, but if it turns out that you won't be able to play used games then I'm out.

I'm with Husker on this one. I am not a blind Fanboy. I will go where the best gaming is to be had. I am very interested to see how it stacks up to the PS4 once all the details are out.

I'll buy every console that lets me play something I want. I like Halo so I'll get the next xbox. I like LoL and a bunch of indie games so I play PC. ALMOST like the look of Journey enough to buy the PS3, but it's too close to end of life at this point.

PS4 has already officially confirmed to play used games. Xbox is still up in the air right now. We'll have to wait for the official reveal and more details.

This.

Believe me, I'd MUCH rather stick with the xbox and what I know, but if it comes down to the Xbox not playing used games and the PS4 playing them then I'll make the switch.

Except to build a good gaming PC will cost about $1000.

That is a pretty good list of games if they're all available around release. I'd like to see what PS4 plans to try and bring to release. I'm guessing though that a handful of those games will be both systems so I probably won't be persuaded by the list. I got the 360 for PDZ and ended up not really playing the game much because I got it after the "shinny" had worn off on that game.

#1 game I'm interested (very, very interested) on that list is Destiny and that's going to be on both consoles.

I actually care much less about specs, features, etc, and more about what the controllers are like.

Do we know if they're keeping them basically the same? I would think there would be more info on that as it was a big deal last time. Anyone else think sony's "Boomerang" design is half the reason they fell behind before launch?

Yes, Watch Dogs is a must buy for me too. Not sure what system I'll get it on as I'll probably end up getting the next-gen Xbox and the PS4. Depends on which system I decide to buy first, which also depends on features and exclusive titles. Destiny also looks like it will be an awesome game too.

lol, actually yes, Watch Dogs is #2 on my list, but that one is on both consoles also, so either way it will come down to this one HUGE selling point of used games or no used games.

Just some PS4 news from inside the industry...

All the first-party PS4 launch titles are very far behind. The one further into development is 'Drive Club' but even those guys are not sure how they're gonna finish.

So, expect a lot of rushed games.

P.S. -

Project Gotham 5 will be a NextBox launch title. Forza has two much new content to get ready in time for launch. Smile
