Neither. I plan to wait until they get all the bugs out before buying one. I'll be perfectly content with the computer I plan on buying from here on Friday until next year when I can safely buy a console.

I may get one of them eventually once a clear favorite emerges, but my DS gaming PC is keeping perfectly happy for now.

Awesome

I still have a few PS3 games I need to get through anyways, owning the DS made my poor consoles semi-abandoned, heck I even sold the Wii. Big%20Smile

Neither thus far. Since recently switching to PC for my main gaming needs, I will wait until next year to get a PS4 once more exclusive titles are released...

Xbox One for me. Actually, I got 2 of them - the wife is a big time gamer too and so are my stepkids. My wife and I also played a ton of Battlefield 3 together and wanted to do the same with BF4.

I'll always prefer Battlefield on PC but I can't complain at having the sort of wife that wants to squad up together on console

So far I'm very impressed with the Xbox One. The extra things like Skype and TV connectivity are awesome and things my family and I will really utilize. I realize that hardcore 'gamer only' folks don't see these as good features but I think Microsoft nailed it very well. The new kinect is great and a HUGE improvement over the last. For Battlefield, I don't like the lean and look features on kinect but it's a great thing to request ammo, medic, need a ride and all the other things on the commo rose.

So, after using the Xbone for about a week now, I'm with BattleAxe, very impressed. This thing is so innovative it blows me away. It's more than a gaming console. It's totally revolutionalized my living room. My son is a Playstation fanboy, and I'm really glad I didn't pick up a ps4. From what I can tell the ps4 is a bigger, better, faster, stronger ps3, while the xbone is a leap forward for living room entertainment.

I also picked up a XboxOne on Christmas Eve as BestBuy had them in stock when I was there picking some other things up (also got Dead Rising 3 & Forza 5). So far it seems no better than my PS3 but does offer a lot of extra home entertainment features that I'm not sure I'll actually use. One thing I did notice different though is that some content (like signing into my YouTube account) required that you have a Xbox Live Membership. Never needed a PSN membership to do anything on my PS3... I will still be getting a PS4 whenever I can get my hands on one since there are many games I want to play on it (as far as release titles, only KillZone is out but it looks awesome). This is my first time owning an Xbox and so far, so good (lucky I didn't get one with a bad disc drive!).

XboxOne this weekend for the reasons others mentioned, most of my gaming is PC only, but I like the other features of the xbone as a all around system for the living room.
