Don't worry about it. @Knux just forgot that "real" gamers don't always have money and/or have different priorities.

Also PC is a good alternative to a non-Nintendo console. I am going with Wii U, 3DS, and PC. With Xbone and PS4 being so close to PC I will probably not miss much

I'm a big all-around gamer, but Nintendo always comes first. Each generation, I have and play all consoles... and although I am planning on getting an Xbox One and PS4 later on next year, I am sticking with WiiU for now as long as I can. I cancelled my preorders of those two new consoles DUE to the amount of games coming out for the WiiU. This console has the games I want to play now and the games I want next year as well (well, this and 3DS of course ;D

Nintendo made me love gaming when I was age four and got my NES... and that has never changed.

I just have my 3DS. I doubt I'll have a console this generation, but if I do it will definitely be a WiiU.
I absolutely can't understand the people who say "not enough games" - where do people get the time to play more than one console's worth of games? And where do they get the money?
I have to choose carefully out of the many games I would like to play.
I sometimes wonder if the people who complain about "so few games coming to the console" REALLY do/would play so many, or whether they just like the idea of being able to.

PlayStation and Xbox have never interested me. I'll be sticking with my WiiU and 3DS for the rest of this console generation.

I liked Xbox 360, honestly.

I had a Wii since launch, got a PS3 slim when those came out, then got an Xbox 360 S when those came out. I enjoyed all of them. Since PS3 had free online, I used that for exclusives and multiplats, then Xbox 360 for exclusives, and obviously whatever Wii had.

Going forward, I can't see myself getting PS4. The main reason that I had a PS3, was bluray and free online. Now Xbox has bluray(IMO, a better OS and it has strong Kinect support as well), and there's no reason to be paying for more than one online subscription, IMO.

I also don't like PS' exclusives.
Killzone = CoD, Battlefield, Destiny, etc.
inFamous = Assassin's Creed, Watch_Dogs, GTA(sorta)
I just think that I can have some form Sony's IPs if I really want to, whether I have the PS4 console or not. As far as my interests go, Nintendo and Xbox are where it's at for me. I don't even care about PC, iMac, tablets, smart phones,SteamBox, or OUYA type consoles.

I can see that there's alot of devices to choose from. I just can't see myself buying anything that's not Nintendo or Microsoft, unless something absolutely hypnotizes me to the point where I'm no longer in control. That's never happened, so why would it now?

There's probably alot of people that could say the same thing about any company. It's all dependant on tastes, so it's nothing to get worked up about.

I was really into Xbox for awhile but with Halo 4 (a terrible game with all other entries in the series being great games) and no backwards compatibility (even just for my arcade games) they lost me. I have now re-purchased most of my Xbox Games on Steam (thanks to all their sales) and will be supporting Wii U and 3DS as my main gaming systems, with PC filling in the gaps.

Do we know pricing for those yet? I am not sure if a Steam Machine will be worth the investment for myself when I could just put that money onto PC parts instead, but I understand why Steam Machines are awesome lol

EDIT: I do want that controller lol

Not me, because I already got a Xbox One (which is a surprisingly awesome console) as an early Christmas/birthday gift. I'll probably get a PS4 sometime next year. A real gamer always buys at least two consoles (a non-Nintendo and Nintendo one) to experience at least the majority of games released. Only people who feel like buying non-Nintendo consoles is a sin will feel otherwise differently.

That last bit can really be said about any of the 3 consoles. With that said, Wii U + PS4 + XB1 + PC + 3DS + Vita = True Master Race

The one they have there adds up to about $1400US if you paid for all of the components. It also has a 780 in there which is a ~$550US graphics card by itself. So of course it's $1400US. By comparison the graphics card in the XBOne and PS4 retails for something closer to $200US if you were to build a PS4/XBOne equivalent.

I'm sure when they start making retail versions of these they'll have them at all of the necessary price brackets. So there'll be ones cheaper then next gen all the way up to the ridiculous beasts in a slim-mITX case. What's impressive is how small they've managed to make it even with a 780 in it. Pretty fantastic, that thing will be about the size of the PS4 despite the fact that it's orders of magnitude more capable.

That's fine. Microsoft might get BC going eventually, but I wouldn't count on it.

Believe it or not, Wii U getting 8th gen ports of ×86 games is part of the same situation as Xbox One with BC support. I can't see Microsoft ever supporting original Xbox in BC(similarly to GCN with Wii U), but the ones that some people bought on Xbox Live would probably work.

People have apparently forgotten that Microsoft went from ×86 in the original Xbox to PowerPC in Xbox 360. tsk. tsk...
They got a majority of Xbox games running on Xbox 360, so I don't see how BC would be a problem. Hell, they don't even have ext. HDD support on either the PS4 OR the Xbox One, while the Wii U does. My point is that you can never count anything out.

I know enough about computers to come to the conclusion that I wouldn't care about SteamBox or PC. I don't see how the heck SteamBox is going to matter as long as PC is around, though, Steam OS could technically be on Wii U, even, but Nintendo OR Valve will probably never let that happen(Nintendo wants you to buy from them on their console, aka: eShop). It all just depends on your outlook about what makes a system important.

Steam OS isn't a replacement for PC, it's a replacement for Windows. It means you don't have to give Microsoft $100 if you want to get into PC gaming. Steam Machines are just pre-built PCs that are designed to sit under your TV and play games. Which when you think about it is all that the Wii U, PS4 and XBOne are. Much more the PS4 and XBOne than Wii U though.

As for Steam OS being on Wii U. You'll sooner see Windows on the Wii U or the Playstation OS or similar things on PS4 and XBOne. Not going to happen. They're not going to let you buy their console with the intent to make money from selling games and then let you play somebody else's games.

I don't really care for traditional controlled/dual analog 3D based video games anymore(unless you are a 3D mario platformer), i don't have any slight interest in Sony or MS exclusives, and i currently don't give a jolly hoot that much for the 3rd party devs' that i used to gush over such as these two sell outs that have outsourced have their franchises and westerned it up all for the mighty dollar > Capcom and Konami.....

Evil within does look promising, but i'm sure it wont be supporting pointer controls as an alternate control scheme. I had to force myself through RE:Revelations, a game that would of been far more enjoyable had it supported Wii remote plus pointer controls, but alas capcom treated the Wii U version as an afterthought. They could of at least used the wii u game pad's screen as a scanner, Sniper rifle ala' zombiU and the ability to push and shove off enemies...

Ya, that's basically what I said. I'm just pointing out that all these companies have different ways of doing essentially the same thing. All that ultimately matters is what software each one gets. With Steam Box existing Valve's IPs won't go anywhere else, unless Steam Box bombs.

Kinect, Xbox OS, Miiverse, Wii remotes, Balance board, possible 3DS connectivity, and the GamePad are basically why I would choose Nintendo or Microsoft. On a software level, any of these systems shouldn't have any problems.

When I look at PC or something like the Steam Box, all I can think is that you might as well fly a spaceship or something.

I will probably stick with Wii u for a while, then, in a year or so I will look in to getting a PS4 or Xone depending on the online games on Wii and what my mates get.

Huh? Because it's so hard to take out a pre-built system, plug in a power cable and turn it on? It's not just kinda like the console experience, it is the console experience. Only difference is Valve is making their platform open so if you want to you can build your own. It also means that there's no such thing as a console revision, the console upgrade is just a matter of you feeling the need to upgrade. It's not harder and it won't be any less user friendly than the consoles have become anyway.

As for Valve's IP. I would be very surprised if Valve made any software Steam OS exclusive. That's not what they're going for here, they don't want to make another closed platform. Their plan is all about pushing back against closed platforms and platform exclusives. The console manufacturers want to make money by selling hardware using exclusive content. Valve wants to make money by expanding out their store as far as they can and giving you bucketloads of freedom within their store so you're happy to buy content.
