PS4 which i get on the 29/11, PS3 which is my main console untill i get my PS4. Then i'll use my PS3 for the games i've already got and games that are only on the PS3 like Dark Souls2 etc and my Wii U for exclusives only.

The Wii U will be my only console this generation. I might get a 3DS but that is about it. I still have over 30 games I haven't finished from the Wii.

You know, I'd really love to have just one console this time around. I usually have all of them, but I just don't have the time I had when I was younger. It'll be hard enough just keeping up with the Wii U.

But it's easy saying that now without a new Tomb Raider, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, God of War, and more than a few other games I love out right now.

I will be sticking with Wii U as my next gen console for a while yet as it is the only next gen console that has lots of games that appeal to me on. I Imagine I will get a PS4 at some stage when there are enough games I want to play on it that I can't play on Wii U but think this will be 2015 at the earliest.

@steamhare You must not have read the article. The margin I posted was for a $20 brick and mortar game. That low profit margin is what convinced them to go digital and get a 70/30 split with valve.
EDIT: And according to this (from feedvibe, which I don't seem to be able to access from chrome. Guess it got cancelled) the dev get's $9 and the publisher gets $18. The original 45 million profit has shrunk to 3.
EDIT AGAIN: Sorry, seems my link is broken. I'll see if I can fix it.

Here's a better image (one that seems like it'll work) from kotaku. According to it, $7 makes it's way back to the developer. (or "software developer"). I can see where they might be upset.

I am in the same boat.

I have not ruled out picking up a PS4 in addition to the Wii U, 3DS, but I barely have the time for what I have. I'd be fine with just Wii U.

I love my Wii U. It's renewed my interest in gaming. I'm kind of an all over the place but picky gamer. Most games bore me. I buy one game a month and so far the Wii U has been dominating my purchases since July when I got it. I follow the games that interest me and I doubt there will be much for me. Time is also an issue.

PC+Wii U+ 3DS seems most ideal for me now.

I will probably be primarily a Wii U user. It will probably be at least a few years before I even think of investing in a complementary console to play a few of the Sony/Microsoft exclusives and 3rd party games that skip Wii U. The only launch title that even particularly interested me for either "next-gen" console was Forza 5, but from the sounds of it, it is a huge step back from the freedom and choice offered in Forza 4. I'll save that $600 and put it towards interesting games for my Wii U, thanks. On a side note, I wonder if Project Cars will have a decent selection of classic muscle cars to drive with reckless abandon.

Boo! I'm a ghost.

My post clearly indicates I understood these facts, as I did read the article. None of it indicates how much a $60 game makes at retail. Still.

Also, your graph does not say that developers receive $7 from sales. That $7 is actually the amount of a game's price used to cover returns. The developer cut is not given anywhere in the pie chart or article.

Getting PlayStation 4 when the wallet is available, otherwise, nope.

Would you like to have a round of Black Ops 2 on Wii U? Talk to me @ TLKH_Amy

I will be, when I bother to get a Wii U. Only Nintendo's games even look interesting to me any more. Probably because they're not multiplayer shooters or glorified movies.

The Wii U will be my main console this gen, although I expect to pick up a PS4 sometime in 2015.

I'm not too worried about the games that are not coming to the Wii U, as from the past gen I found that most tend to be overhyped and lack the heart of games on Nintendo platforms. Besides the majority of my 'most wanted' games are coming to the Wii U anyway (Bayonetta 2, 'X', Mario Kart 8, DKC:TF, Watch Dogs) with the only exception being The Order 1866 (a PS4 exclusive).

I even have a large Wii U backlog now, as I still have Lego Marvel, Deus Ex, Wind Waker HD and a bunch of eShop games to play. Mario has taken over my console for now though.

You know if you buy a console because it has games you know you want to play then it's not really a gamble, as some one has said. Buying a console on the possibility of playing something makes no sense to me. I've got a decent library of games on the Wii U that I enjoy. Nintendo could dump the machine tomorrow and they'd still be on the machine and I'd still play them!

Got any more room on the Nintenboat? If it weren't for nintendo i'd quit gaming all together and build a NeoRad-vintage vortex of all things retro,with NES,SNES & Atari 2600 taking center stage.. B-) Outside of Nintendo, i truly hate where the industry is headed. it feels like we've entered the dark age, with nintendo being the glowing light, the only company that's still sticking to their roots. And it's funny, because i'm a huge horror movie fan, but i generally don't look playing many of these overly violent video games, i prefer the colorful, dreamy, whimsical, fantasy-filled, vibrant and imaginative based titles that basically zap you into a world unlike ours. Puts a big smile on my face. :*

It's Wii U & 3DS only for me this generation. It's all that i need, based on what's available i'm already in over my head and I'm a very picky gamer as it is. :P owning another consoles would be total overkill, besides i wouldn't even touch the PS4 or One if they're anything like the PS3 and XBOX 360 which i owned peviously which they ARE. same type of game selection, without a single shred of innovative hardware wise in sight, relying on dazzling the player with even more realistic visuals.....Yeah, screw realism, i want SURREALism, seems like i can only get it on Nintendo these days. Those other twochildish war machines can go die in a 16-bit grease fire. ;)

I'll be sticking with Nintendo. Never was a Playstation fan even during the PS1 and PS2 glory days, tried out the PS3 slim and sold it shortly after. Wii U has the best exclusives coming out and regarding the third party, Reggie said stay tuned so I'm pretty dang satisfied. Not to mention it's the only console out of the three with free online and backwards compatibility.

I love my wii u and I did intend on it being my only next gen console, but I'm afraid ps4 and naughty dog are too good to miss. And the Xbox is still in beta so no way am I touching that thing until a ltd edition halo version comes out.
Added to this, I will still be playing the following consoles this gen:
Wii, game cube, sans, nes, gameboy, gameboy micro, ds, 3ds, megadrive, Saturn, dreamcast, neo geo AES, Xbox 360, ps2 Xbox original and N64.

There are still so many games I want to play even from the 8 and 16 bit era. I collect as well though so that's probably why.

Lovin Rahman legends on wii u ATM. Saw it for £23 on the Nintendo e shop! Bargain!!
