I currently have a Wii U and laptop which is just capable of running modern games. I've owned nearly every major console of my lifetime except the original Xbox and Neo Geo but I only kept the Sega and Nintendo ones because Sony's games have never aged well and MS consoles don't age well. PS4 doesn't interest me in the slightest. The games look good but not by enough to spend hundreds. In the PS1 and 2 generations, Sony had so many exclusives that I was forced to endure their slow loading consoles with the woefully imprecise controllers, never actually enjoyed the games as much as everyone else seemed to. FF7 still leaves a bitter taste in my mouth as to how much less fun it was than SNES Squaresoft games. All the late PS3 exclusives were ok but the review scores must have been bribed. Xbox1 has a handful of games I would like to play but the system is too expensive at the moment.

I might own them all again this gen but Sony have offered nothing for me yet and MS should have gone for power over Kinect and they might have got my money already.

I only posted this to get my avatar as the forum's thumbnail.

Wii U, 3DS, Gamecube. Even if they put the entire GCN library on the eShop, I'd still never sell mine because I can't get enough of that sweet, sweet analog stick. Sometimes I fondle it as I fall asleep at night.

I think Nintendo games are cool, and good.

I'm a Nintendo and Sony guy, but the PS4 hasn't impressed me at all yet and it's starting to look unlikely that I'll ever buy one. I do plan on upgrading my PSP to a Vita soon though.

For this generation, Wii U will probably be my only home console, but I will have a 3DS and a Vita. Still hanging onto my Gamecube, PS2, and PS3 forever though.

Wii U, 3DS, PS4, and the old Wii is in my kid's room now. Wish I still had my old systems, but the VC covers some of that void. I get a ton of use out of the Wii U and its library, despite the "lack of games" for it. Meanwhile, the PS4 just sits there. I should have waited to buy it as it'll probably mostly be used for Naughty Dog games and not much else.

Only current gen console. Also the only one I plan on getting for a long time to come. I've had a 360 since 2007 and a Wii since it first came out. Also, PS2, PS1, original Xbox, Gamecube, and NES.

I'll be getting a PS3 once Persona 5 comes out, so I might get a PS4 if Persona 6 comes out on it in another 5 or 6 years. Until then, I think I'll be happy with a Wii U, PC, handhelds, and older systems.

Pretty much my only current gen console. There's only so much free time and money in the world, might as well use both wisely unless I want to end up broke and jobless. Also it interest me more.

Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

Wise words, especially when you've been gaming for about 25 years like i have and feel like you've seen it all. Yet Nintendo still hooks me with their awesome innovative gimmicks which freshen up each and every generation, not to mention Nintendo's key franchises totaly make me feel like a kid again.

At this point, i have zero desire to own a One or PS4, i don't i think i ever will seeing as how pathetic the majority of 3rd party titles are these days and the fact that i just don't care for Sony and MS's exclusives. Plus i can't be bothered trying to keep up with all of these games, it's an over populated & plagiarized video game jungle with a butt load of pretentious indie devs cut and pasting popular renowned franchises and giving them a cheap forgettable artsy fartsy lick of paint. there are exceptions, but what i'm seeing is dejavu all over again wrapped in a different package. It boggles my mind how people continue to eat it up again and again.

It's Wii U & 3DS for me only this gen. :P
Also have > Nes, Snes, N64, GCN, Wii, GameBoy, GBA & DS. Wouldn't mind adding a Genesis(more like re-adding), Atari 2600, and PS1/PS2 into my collection some day.

I was thinking about getting a PS4 for Madden. If I do, I'll wait till the next edition comes out. Then I might pick up a few games as its library grows. If I did this tho, I would still use my Wii U as my main console.

Right now there's nothing I want to buy, but by the end of the year, there will probably be at least 10 more games that I'll want on top of the 30 retail and 15 or so eShop titles that I have.

I just got the Wii u and I'm happy with it... The PS4 looks nice but as other users said .. there really isn't any games that I would want at the moment... I'll probably wait for a price drop or just be happy with the Wii U and my 3ds.

The VC and eshop games have been keeping me busy lately which is good.

Nope. That idea is a bad joke. The only Wii U game that I've found worth buying that's not also on PS3 (Arkham City and Origins, though at least with City, I must admit I love the gamepad in it) is Monster Hunter, and it didn't grab me like most.
I also have PS4 for some first-party games and third-party games. Loving it with Second Son, indies and other smaller games are great too. A few cross-gen games have been nice icing as well.
I've got a 3DS, Vita, (current gen systems now, even though I don't think they are the focus here) PS3 and a PSP.

I'm gonna try again.

I plan on getting a Wii U as soon as possible (probably this summer). I have a 3DS and I'm mainly a portable gamer. Only other system I will try to pick up this generation is a Vita just so I can nab a few more JRPGs. I will use my laptop to fill in the gaps. Honestly, the PS and Xbox console exclusives don't really appeal to me. It's not worth it.

I own a Wii U, 3DS, and PS4. I got the Wii U first because I need those Nintendo games! But I also enjoy Sony exclusives too. (I will definitely be buying TLOU Remastered when it comes out, I missed it for some reason last gen). I honestly play my Wii U the most though.

I'm an awesome ninja because I can be REEEEAAAALLLLY silent! Which is probably because I don't have a mouth. :p

All in all though, I own a SNES, Gamecube, Wii, (used to have an xbox 360 and ps3, sold them to get a Wii U) 3DS, Wii U, and PS4.

I have the SNES, N64, and Wii hooked up downstairs. I also have a GBA, 2 DS, and 2 3DS. I use the WiiU as my main gaming console. I personally find the WiiU to be the ultimate gaming machine since it has a huge backlog of older and new games. I've never once felt it has a lack of games.
