At this time I don't plan on getting a next-gen system. I have a PS3 that I still love and hardly use. I feel there's a lot of life left in it. If in a few years I feel like upgrading, I'll be looking at the PS4.

Wii U for me. Because I like a few of the Nintendo exclusives a bit (Zelda, Mario, Metroid). And because it still feels like a unique console. PlayStation and XBox really aren't that different from each other. Plus I REALLY don't want to support Microsoft with my money after all that crap they tried to pull with the XBox One. I might get a PS4 eventually.

PS4 and Wii U eventually, as in not any time soon.
I've got no interest in the XBOne... my 360 has done pretty much nothing but gather dust - I don't remember the last time I fired it up.

Won't be getting any new ones either, bought my kids the PS3 last xmas and they hardly ever play it. I'll just stick with the PS3 for the next 5-6 years then if they want something new they can go out get a job and buy it themselves Dancing

Not sure yet. I'm like many others here. I still have about 8 games in my closet I haven't touched on my 360 that I have to play, and now I'm thinking of getting a PS3 on black fri/thurs to get it's exclusives. That alone will last me at least a year if not more. I will eventually get one, but not sure which since neither have shown me anything to put them on top. But I am a big fan of my 360, so that's probably where I will lean.

PS4 all the way, since the xbox will be upscaling to 1080 pretty much killed it for me.

I got lucky last month amazon was running a promo if you traded in $30 worth of stuff you got a $30 credit towards a ps4 controller. So managed to snag my 2 extra controllers early.

yeah, my back-catalog will keep my happily busy until all the kinks are worked out and the prices drop. I still have games for the SNES, N64, GameCube, Wii, GBA, DS, PS1, PS2, PS3, X-Box, and 360 sitting around that I haven't even played yet.

The God of War and Resistance games are great. GOW you can get every game (including the great PSP games) on 3 discs (separate purchases) for less than $100.

I'm not planning on getting a new system. The newest system I have is the original Xbox. I have never been that big on gaming anyway as was made clearer to me when prior to reading the options for this poll, I had never heard of an Ouya.

I'm happy with my Nintendo and Super Nintendo, the best games were on those anyway. Every game I see advertised now seems to be the exact same game. 90% of them seem to be first person shooters, if I want to play one of those, I am going to go to the best, Goldeneye for the N64.

I love my NES and SNES, too. My two top consoles ever. But modern gaming is an entirely different experience. I'm such a big gamer, I want both.

And to add to your list of some of the greatest games of all-time that just happen to be on SNES (Super Metroid is simply the greatest game of all-time, IMO):

-Chrono Trigger
-Donkey Kong Country
-Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (STILL the best Zelda game, ever)
-Sim City (A rare instance where the SNES version is preferable to the PC version)
-Super Mario World (best Mario game ever)
-Super Street Fighter II

Maybe in the 3-5 years when the prices drop and the library of games has grown. Like others on here I still have games purchased for both PS3 and Xbox360 that I haven't even opened yet.

Yesterday I went to Target and they had a PS4 set up in the electronics department, here's my hands-on impression:
New controller = awesome. I'm a big guy, 6'4" usually need XXL gloves, and even though they've down-sized the controller a bit, it still fits great in my hands and is super ergo. A little bit too light (for my tastes), but overall just a beutiful piece of equipment. Very solid. Doesn't feel cheap in any way.
New console - was stuck in some sort of crash mode. Not even 3 days of use and some error message about system failure...
The employees tried to restart it twice while I was there, no dice.

Yeah $ony, I'm totally sold now - sign me up!
I've also been reading about a lot of the consoles people got early through contests (Taco Bell etc) were bricked upon boot and many have had the HDMI jack fail.
I'll definitely wait until the second iteration of hardware.

I plan on getting a PS4 but not for awhile. I'm really in no rush since I'm still having fun with my PS3. Kinda interested in the Wii U as well.

I want to get the PS4. No interest in the Xbox after what Microsoft pulled over the summer with all the DRM. Plus, they didn't handle the criticism well in the press. My roommate just got a Wii U and it's pretty fun. Definitely going to pick it up when the Zelda Dynasty Warriors game or the Smash Bros comes out.
