I think I will. :D Nintendo is my fav, always have been, but I have a spot for Sony too. Really like their exclusives, mainly their older ones that haven't really seen much action on the PS3. The next Xbox doesn't sound like my cup of tea at all and I own a 360 and don't really like it... not even for it RRoD'ing on me 5 times since launch but also for it having no exclusives I like. I'd like to play more than shooters Microsoft... Anyway, PS4 is looking good to me, I think I'll reserve a spot next to my Wii U for it. Shame I heard it won't be backwards compatible since I sold my PS3 to get a Wii U, still have all my games though.

Definetely, is my first thought, Playstation has been my favorite gaming-brand for the past three generations and with Wii U being "on the sidelines" (in terms of hardware and therefor also engines and therefor also the games being based on those engines) i will get a PS4 for the complete package, the best of two worlds.
My favorite video-game genre is western RPGs and to experience what Bethesda, Obsidian, BioWare etc. has to bring PS4 is a must. Not to mention the games that Sonys own studios will bring, such as the new inFamous and whatever Naughty Dog and Quantic Dream will bring to the table.

But really i am waiting to jump onto the hype-train until it becomes more clear how it will look with the DRM/Online-activation that seems to become a reality with the PS4 and next Xbox. If that turns out ugly i will stay Wii U exclusive.

I'd rather get the next Xbox over the PS4 for multiple reasons:
-Xbox appeals more to me
-Xbox Live is way better than PSN
-I've never liked PS after they stole all the games away from the N64..
-The PS controller is awful, one of the worst imo

I know some of you may think I sound stupid for this, but I honestly could care less..

I sure am. After the ridiculous business decisions Nintendo made this'll be the first generation my Nintendo console might get competition..
But I'm not paying over $449 so it's up to sony.

PS4 is a no brainer for me. Some of the best 1st party games around, I NEED the next Red Dead Redemption game. And the sexy Ratchet and Clank is a must, too. I'm hoping against hope for a Legend of Dragoon sequel.

For you saying PC... PC IS the way to go. I'm also a PC gamer. I specifically said I wanted one for the Playstation exclusives, I will be getting Bethesda games and all the other multiplats on the definitive platform, PC. Though I'm hardcore against DRM so I've been buying from Steam less and from GOG more, just out of principle. I love GOG. Also sad you guys already fell for the Wii U is failed bandwagon, specifically talking to you @Sjoerd. The Wii U is pretty new yet, the hard hitters didn't come. Wait before you judge. I'm very optimistic. Hate how all the gaming sites blow smoke up Microsoft and Sony fanboys arses but constantly put down the Wii U. Nintendo does something people ask for and people STILL find a reason to complain, it's like they can never win or please people.

@Midnight3DS Red Dead Redemption was AMAZING and a lot better than it's predecessor Red Dead Revolver. It was one of the only games I got all achievements for and 100% everything for it on the Rockstar Social Club. Amazing game. Still up in the air about getting a PS4. Seriously debating it. Hope the sequel comes to Wii U if not but I'm doubting it. Only other games I 100% were Half-Life 2 and both its episodes on Steam for PC, Portal and Portal 2 on Steam for PC, and Uncharted 2 for PS3. :D

I will almost certainly buy a PlayStation 4 after the inevitable slimmed down redesign and price drop they do after two or three years. I am in no rush at all. I will never buy an Xbox again. Paying for Xbox Live just for online multiplayer is ridiculous. Literally no other platform in existence forces that fee on it's users. I ended up with all three platforms this generation, and I developed a strong distaste for Microsoft and it's Xbox. Sony also just has way more exclusives that interest me. Halo and Fable are the only exclusives from Microsoft that I like, and both are no good anymore. I've hated 343 Industry's work with Halo. They clearly don't really know what they're doing. And Fable has faded into mediocrity. The only negative bullet under the PlayStation 4 at this point is its lack of backward compatibility. Honestly, I'd be tempted to buy it at launch if it were backward compatible.

If all these rumors about Nintendo titles in the works are true though, Nintendo might be all I need for a while.

It's not as bad as you think @Treverend, I've already had a lot of fun with my Wii U, I play might more thanks to off-tv play. And I'm certainly not getting a ps4 day one, but there are many games I've missed out over the years thanks to Nintendo's strange 3rd party relationships I'm seriously considering getting it down the road. I just want to play a normal Fifa game.. If that's coming for Wii U I'll stop complaining.

The only reasons I regret not having a PS3 are MGS4, Ni No Kuni & One Piece Pirate Warriors and some of those JRPG's.

I think we will be getting a PS4 though. If so, it'll be our 1st Sony home console ever.

Not at first. Maybe much much later in the consoles lifespan...maybe. I just cant stand all this social media crap. Im also not interested in this whole "stream your game online" stuff. And since that is all that system seems to offer, ill pass. Lets just call it a Lets Play Station and be done with it.
And im defenitly not getting the nex Xbox if the rumors proove to be true (always on DRM, no physical games etc).
The next generation of consoles just doesnt appeal to me that much.

Alot of the games I liked on PS2 turned to crud on PS3 so I'm not really worried about Sony anymore ;)

Yep, Sony has always been my favorite. I love the exclusives and third party, frankly, I think Playstation's best exclusive is better than Nintendo's best exclusives. I can't wait for the PS4.

Before you decide in a console, you'll want to look at what PSN will offer on PS4. I have a hard time seeing how Xbox will have better online this time, the PS4's online can do crazy things.

I not sure yet. I skipped the PS3 for the 360 but if the 720 focus too much on multi-plats and not exclusives then I will not be getting it (I have a pc for that). That will be the time I will think about getting the PS4.

Online 3ds games I own:
Kid Icarus, Mario Kart 7, Dead or Alive

If anything I'd get a Nextbox or an Ouya. No way I'm getting a PS4 unless gifted one.
