Well yesterday I cancelled my Xbox One pre-order, I'm NOT putting a PS4 pre-order in because I simply don't know which console I want.

Sick of it all to be honest, so I'm just going to let the release dates come and go, then make a proper decision once the dust settles and I've got a clear idea of where I want to be.

I have my PS3 with a half dozen Plus titles to play, I want to play through TLOU at least another twice, I have my Xbox 360 with about the same number of games to play. Not to mention my PC. Its all getting crazy !!!

I really need to learn that what I have, is enough.

Well, i for one will be sat in my kitchen window biting my nails down to nothing waiting for the postman on launch day. Either that, or I'll be on here, green with envy at all the inevitable posts of people that got their console early.

I'm not sure what it is that you're 'sick' of . Maybe you could elaborate?

I think that's a bit of an extreme reaction. If you're "sick of it all" then just don't bother coming into this section of the forum for a while, the hilarious fanboyism from both the PS4 and X1 camps has made this section of DS quite unpleasant of late, and it's part of why i've stopped posting in here as much. Just pick the console that's right for you, and ignore what the fanboys keep ranting at us. Both consoles will be worth the money in my opinion, it's just a case of which has the most games that appeal to you as to which one you get first.

I'm waiting for the dust to settle before I buy a next gen console.
I still have my launch Xbox 360 and PS3, so I might need to replace them first. (Borrowed time ?)

There's a few games on the current machines that I am looking forward to.

If you dont know what you want, then you've made the right decision. Better not to buy then to buy and get buyers remorse.

I think you're wise.

I think I might sit down in reception at work to ensure that I take receipt of the console those vital 2 minutes earlier

I was almost tempted to purchase a HDMI to DVI adapter so I could hook it up to the monitors so I could play before I got home but I'm not sure I'm that pathetic!

At least you have the option to play your chosen console at work the day it comes out

I'll be getting one in store on day one after probably waiting in a very long line and then as soon i as get home it will be getting hidden somewhere i won't find it until my birthday or christmas (they are only 8 days apart and i hope i get it for my birthday)

Its going to be sat in my house for two months without me being able to play it, i'm not even allowed to 'test it' for a few hours, even though last year my launch day WiiU that i got for my birthday was broken

The first thing you should really concentrate on is getting a life. Its not a big deal really is it? Sounds like you are talking about buying a house! Sorry to sound harsh but people are taking this console war far too seriously, all you really need to do is decide what exclusives you like more?

I can certainly see the value in playing the waiting game if you're not overly hung up on getting one of them straight away.

Even though it's 99% certain that I'll be picking up a PS4 out of the two of them, I doubt it'll be on release day. Still got far too many games to get around to playing on this gen consoles yet. Plus it'll give them time to work out any bugs/glitches that may be there early on in the cycle.

These sort of comments always make me laugh - problem is matey I have to much of a life, I rarely use the consoles I have, between the wife and my young child, work and doing all the things a small family do, I don't game much.

I can't make up my mind so I've quit trying for now, its as simple as that. When I said I'm sick of it all, its my own in-ability to make up my mind that I'm sick of - I didn't realise there was something wrong with that.

I actually feel better having neither console on pre-order, just pick one up when I'm ready at some point after launch, when the dust settles, like I said.

Thank you.

You're about the only one that understood what I was saying.

Thats rather a mean spirited comment...theres nothing wrong with the OP posting about a decision on consoles in a gaming forum, a post where he doesn;t have a go at any other forum member, yet you tell him basically to "get a life"?. Please.
