I've not covered Wii U, cause i see that as an "I also own" console..

I see a lot of people jumping ship, moving their alegance from my to another and wanted to quantify it.

I really enjoyed my PS3 this generation and I favor Sonys exclusives so the only way I was likely to switch back to Xbox next generation was if Sony really dropped the ball and MS had played a real blinder. If anything MS really dropped the ball and Sony picked it up and ran is running to the end zone with it.

I choose sticking with PlayStation as I currently have a PS3 and have preordered a PS4. I did own a 360 but sold it as none of the exclusives interesedt me and I was buying all multiplatfom game on PS3.

I did have both before and will get both this time.

My switch is using PS4 for primary gaming rather X1.

I had the original Playstation and the PS2.
I then moved to the Xbox 360 and much prefer the exclusives on there.
The same this generation i prefer the Xbox offerings exclusives, the controller and being able to transfer my Live account across.
Of my close group of friends everyone now has the Xbox 360 and they're all moving to the Xbox One.

What about those sticking with both?

I'm not sure which one I will get to begin with, but I have no doubt that I will end up with both consoles within a year like I do now.

Currently have PS and Xbox, will be dropping to just PS4 in the short term, with a view to getting an Xbox One later (if it lives long enough).

Voted Xbox to Playstation, as it represents a sale to Sony with a loss of sale to Microsoft.

I plan to switch from PS3 to PC.

(I say "plan" because sometimes it's hard to resist the shiny.)

I did think about adding more options, but it was getting crazy once I started to add PC; both; all three... then the Wii U.

So I decided to stick with the most common. Though in hindsight I should have added both.

For me itís stick with PlayStation and PC, cause not one of my RLF's or OLF's are getting an X1.

Sticking with PC. The Xbox is an insult and PS4 charging for multiplayer put me off.

Sticking with Sony. Been a fan all the 19 years of my life... That is not to say I'm a fan boy though, I'm disappointed for you Xbox fans to be honest - MS had a great concept for a console with some good features and flushed it down the toilet with too much information to know when purchasing and too many restrictions implicated.

Regarding having to pay for online pay with PS now, I really don't mind. I hear they will be bringing in monthly subsription prices, which will be the best option for me - Because I'm not prone to playing online every single day. The games that are available for free monthly is also a great incentive - as it has been through the PS3's life span.

I still plan to get a high end PC, in the future anyway, because there are so many games that are only playable on PC - But in my opinion I don't think PC's should be compared with console gaming. It is a completely different experience.

I remember when I first got my PS1 and was blown away by it. I also had an N64 then Dreamcast.

Then I became a die hard PS2 fan boy where I wouldn't hear a bad word about the PS2.

Then came along this gen and I bought an Xbox 360 (as I couldn't afford a PS3) and really liked it. Then PS3 got a price cut and so I got that. Eventually I was buying all multiplatform games on PS3 and Xbox 360 exclusives such as Halo and Forza didn't interest me at all.

Next gen I'm getting a PS4 as I don't like Microsofts arrogance, limitations and my biggest bug bear is the forced Kinect. I know Kinect can be disabled etc but the point is I don't want it in the first place and the fact I have no say in the matter with it annoys me.

So I'll be sticking with Sony but I think next gen will probably be my last anyway.

+1. My launch day PS2 is still hooked up to my TV with the original memory card. Never had a freeze or disc skip. I honestly believe that thing would survive a direct nuclear strike.

Went the other way this gen though. Had both but stuck with 360 for most (90%) games.

Lol

I actually think it's quite ridiculous the way I was and some things I used to sprout like "Xbox is just a PC in a box" and "Gamecube is for kids" But I guess you can't argue with a fan boy no matter how wrong about thing I was

There was a small piece in the Metro today about signs you're getting old. Thankfully I only do/have one or two on the list. But I'm only 34 and time is always against us.

To make you feel worse, this was my first ever console.

You kids today, don't know you're born.

I did get an Xbox (that particular bungalow is still in the loft somewhere). Even had a Gamecube for a bit. But always came home to PS. If PS3 wasn't delayed and overpriced I would never have defected to the Empire.

I was PS2 through and through and so were most of my mates and I was in my late teens so I guess I was following the crowd as it were. I still remember buying my PS2 I got it from WH Smith and thought the DVD extra was amazing at the time.

But I'm glad this gen I gave 360 a fair chance as I had some great times playing games like Left 4 Dead and a lot of them die hard PS2 fan boys friends had crossed to 360 cos of the PS3 high price so we had great matches on COD4 etc

PS3 & XBOX360 to PS4. Long term, will probably get the Xbox One as well, but like someone else said, depends on how well the X1 does in the months following launch.

Unable to vote on the poll, still undecided.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intellivision

You kids today, don't know you're born.

Now that is a blast from the past.

My first console as well. I recall asking Santa for an Atari but got the intellivision instead, cant remember which was deemed better in the hazy console wars of old.

I can remember it's versions of Space Invaders and Pac Man and the curly controller wires being irritatingly on the short side. WOW look at the keypad controller layout

I think I'll have a trip down memory lane on You Tube.
