Or getting out of the two, and what made you get that console?

PS4 - because I didn't want to be charged an additional £80 for a camera I don't want and will not ever use. Plus, I was worried that at some point in the future, MS could just say they are changing their policy with regard to either "always online" or even pre-owned, which they could do if they wanted too.

If I'm honest, the Xbox One has the better line up of games (certainly the games I'd prefer to play, including Forza 5) at the moment, and they will probably have the better exclusives overall, but they (SONY) have not done as much to agitate me as MS have.

Funny thing is, when my baby arrives home I'll be fast asleep. Darn 7am starts!

I had intended on getting the PS4 as soon as it launched. I was pleasantly surprised at the launch price.

Now, I've decided to hold off. I just don't see the point (for me personally) when I have so many great 360 games to play yet, and a fab machine like the 360 I can go out and get AAA titles for a fraction of the cost of a new console release game.

Will probably get one next year, and it will be the PS4. :)

not decided yet but im delighted I didn't jump in, with PSN down and Xbone owners back on their 360's the wait and see option is looking better every day :D

I lost my preorder ps4 when blockbuster went under. But yesterday at 12am john lewis had some up for sale. I managed to snag one but they were all gone after 15 mins. Gotta wait till crimbo though as it's a "present for my boy" :wink:

Because I don't want kinect shoved down my throat tbh. That's not to say I won't get one eventually, but it made the PS4 the number 1 choice. Plus the way Microsoft shouted the odds a short while back with the second hand stuff etc etc.

Was planning on getting a PS4, but never felt the urge to pre-order.

The feeble launch games line-up for both new machines has vindicated my decision, and today I've ordered a Wii U thanks to the release and reception of the latest Nintendo titles.
Wasn't expecting that a few weeks ago :D

PS4, just set it up a couple of hours ago, no issues at all, just prefer the Sony brand and like the new very clean user interface.
