Poll: Do You Follow and Watch Rival Console Reveals?

Microsoft's new Xbox is next up

We're just going to come out and do it, and gauge just how much you, the Nintendo Life community, have been following the rival console reveals of the PS4 and today's Xbox Next/Infinity/they-might-just-call-it-Xbox event. As a network that includes www.pushsquare.com and www.purexbox.com, the latter of which is also covering today's event live, we've realised that the gaming world will be focused on Microsoft's big reveal for a good number of hours once it all kicks off.

While it's tempting to roll eyes at busy Twitter feeds talking incessantly about Microsoft's new system, we should remember our own excitement when Nintendo lifted the lid on Wii U, and assume that the same buzz applies to fans of other manufacturers. What we also know is that not everyone is a one-console gamer, with many owning multiple systems to satisfy whatever gaming itches they happen to have.

And so with Microsoft finally joining Sony to unveil a console that will, ultimately, be a rival to Wii U in years to come, we're interested in having an outlook on how many of you follow all three mainstream dedicated gaming manufacturers, and how many of you double or even triple-dip with your systems. We can say for sure that a good number of the Nintendo Life staff will be following what Microsoft has to say — it'd be naive and narrow-sighted of us not to know what Nintendo's rivals are plotting — and you can let us know whether you plan to do the same below.
