    Nintendo's been kinda good on the control front for the Wii U so far. Usually have Wiimote / Pro Controller / Gamepad Tablet options instead of just one

    I'll likely get a PS4 for either Destiny or Watch Dogs. They're the first next-gen games that interest me in the slightest. Still nothing that really interests me on Xbox One though - and the +$100 price tag is a real turnoff.

    I'll probably get a PS4 or Xbox One once Final Fantasy XV is out. Or Kingdom Hearts III I guess, whichever one comes first.

    As for which system I'll get, I'm not sure. PS4 is more powerful, but social stuff has become important for me, and most of my friends are getting the One instead at first.

    I really don't see myself buying the Xbox One or PS4 anytime soon. I would like a PS3 at some point though.

    In order to get an Xbone or PS4, I'd really need to justify it with purchases. I'm not going to plunge on a system unless the games are there for me to enjoy already. Xbone is what I would get if I had to get one now. It's got Dead Rising 3, while nothing released on the PS4 has gotten me interested yet. I'm a big Dead Rising fan, but it's not enough to get me out buying a system.

    I'm most interested in the Wii U still. Wind Waker HD and 3D World are stacking the deck against the competition for me, though. I am a Nintendo guy at heart, so a big purchase point for me would be the big franchises getting games out there. Smash Bros. will most likely be the tipping point, but a high definition Animal Crossing would absolutely get the ball rolling.

    Klippy, I am happy with my Wii U and all I've played so far is Pikmin 3 - which is fantastic

    I know I already posted here before, but whatever.

    For me, I think that I'll go with the more social system-- which is looking to be the Xbox One. I know the PS4 is technically more powerful and all that, but I feel like I would enjoy the One more. I'd get to play great-looking games (Such as, yes, Titanfall) with my friends, many of whom are going with the One over the PS4. I don't particularly like Microsoft as a company, but I feel that their products tend to satisfy me more than Sony's, in one regard or another.

    That's great to hear. I know I'd enjoy it now and be glad of the purchase, but I am still holding out for a bit of time. I just don't want to rush my decision if I don't really NEED it right now.

    Do you ever need a gaming system?

    I really enjoy the Wii U, and it's a shame that Nintendo has screwed it over so badly. There are some good games on the system, but third-party support is practically non-existent and first-party titles come out at an incredibly slow trickle.

    There are so many games I have left waiting to finish on my PS3/360, that I probably won't even consider moving on until I finish up what I got sitting on my shelf. Add on to the no monies kinda thing going on, and waiting on seeing some long-term reliability in the consoles; it'll maybe be another year/year and a half.

    The new Halo title due on XBOne this year might make that hard to resist though haha. Either way, I'll more than likely be getting the XBOne first. Hell, I had just my 360 until I got my first ever PS3 this past holiday season.
