I currently have a preorder for PS4 with Watch_Dogs, Call of Duty & Driveclub. News of delays to Watch_Dogs & potentially Driveclub mean that I'll only have the Call of Duty to play for a few months.

I'd prefer to have the PS4 due to exclusive studios like Naughty Dog, although I don't know when they'll bring out a game for it, but the new Xbox is looking quite appealing as it'll have games available right away that I'd like to play (Forza, Dead Rising, Ryse, Call of Duty, and soon to be Titanfall)

The people I game with are basically split 50/50 on which one they're getting, so getting the one my mates are getting is a puzzle too!

I have a Vita that I don't play that much and about 5 months Playstation Plus left (was getting Driveclub as it has a free period of PS+ with it)

If I was to go for the Xbox One, I'd have to get Gold, pay more for Kinect that I have zero interest in and a play and charge kit just so I'd have roughly the same as what I'll get with PS4.

I don't have a console except Vita just now. Should I still with PS4 and wait it out (Don't like Infamous games or Killzone either) or switch to the Xbox One (Don't like Halo or Gears of War!)

Or you could be sensible and wait for the next gen to establish itself with more games and get a PS3 or 360 in the meantime.

I was disappointed in the as of yet unconfirmed rumour of Driveclub been delayed and came close to cancelling the my preorder. I could quite easily get the launch games except Killzone on my current systems cheaper. However I decided what the heck - just keep the preorder as its already paid for and get on with it.

Only having Knack and Killzone at launch is disappointing however theres F2P games there as well which is ok.

Of course BF4 and COD online will keep me busy until Feb!

Launch windows are always a little thin on games, and having titles delayed only compounds that.

But, what I like about PS4 is the amount of stuff we'll be able to get our hands on without spending an extra penny.

Thanks to PlayStation Plus you'll definitely have Resogun to download and if the rumours about DriveClub do turn out to be true I'm sure there will be another game offered to replace it.

Also, there's the free-to-play stuff. War Thunder, Blacklight Retribution, Warframe and DC Universe Online will all be sitting there ready for the taking.

I'll personally be getting Flower and Escape Plan for free too, as I already own them on PS3 and Vita. Sound Shapes and flOw will also be available to any previous buyers.

Finally there's The Playroom, playable for anyone with a camera.

So, all in all, even though I've only currently got Killzone on pre-order I'll have 10 games to play with as I'm waiting for the releases to start rolling in. Plenty to keep me occupied.

It is absolute torture for me not buying next gen just now due to wanting the almost full bf4 experience, but as said above I'll wait and see how both pan out til next year sometime and settle for my bf3 experience on bf4. More than likely I'll go playstation though

I'm looking forward to Driveclub & Watchdogs too and if Driveclub is delayed, I'll only have BF4 but I have about 2 years worth of Plus left so will have some free games to keep me going til they're released. Since you have Plus, you'd be aswell making the most of it on the PS4 if you don't use on your Vita. There'll probably be another game offered on Plus if Driveclub is delayed (I'd reckon Knack as that's what Japan is getting) does Knack not interest you? You can use your Vita for remote play so you can game if someone is using the TV.

Alternatively, sell the Vita and any games you have, cancel the PS4 preorder & blow it all on an XB1! Once PS4 is out, you'll get a PS3 for cheap to use your Plus subscription on free games, then get a PS4 when the other games are available.

Only Forza interests me on XB1, the rest are 3rd party games, so I'm going to hold out.

Sorry not much help!

If you even have a shread of doubt DON'T GET EITHER. You may as well trust that doubt, and see where people are in say March or something after they've had a few months to settle.

The above is quoted for truth.

If two games you're really looking forward to are delayed, wait. Use the time to perhaps play the games yourself in the shops (when they get demo booths) - maybe play them if your friends get them? Either way, if you're not completely decided, don't spend your hard earned only to be rewarded with buyers guilt.

Personally, I was going to get WD and DriveClub, but there's also a few other games out there, both full price and indys that I'm really looking forward to.

I still have my xbox one pre ordered but thinking about it I don't think I am going to be able to afford it now with Christmas coming up. I don't mind really as I have GTA V and FIFA 14 that i'm currently playing plus i'l have BF4, COD Ghosts and NFS Rivals next month. More than enough to keep me going until early next year when by that time the next gen consoles will have lots of reviews.

Dont see why so many see it as "must have" on release if they're not convinced or happy with the game lineup.

Cancel your orders if your not, hold out and get it sometime next year when more games are released for it

I couldn't decide on which so ended up cancelling both, time will decide for you, just give it time. There is absolutely no reason to buy at launch unless your certain.

I'm having a ball on PC at the moment, mainly indie titles, games that can't be played anywhere else, this will see me through until the new consoles are nested in and the games are doing there bidding and not all the pre-launch bull**** where reading now.

Did you mean the games that interest you are third party or all the games are third party?

A lot of the X1's exclusives are 2nd party not third party

Question - are you sticking with what you have for now or going for the "next gen"?

Still in two minds - I know if I didn't bother the must have tech gremlin in my head will be nagging constantly!!!!!!

I'm going for the Ps4. I want the full experience of BF4 so it's the worth upgrade to me. Just the release to hurry up, and see what Shopto do about my watchdogs.

The only exclusive I want is Forza, the rest don't appeal to me at all. The only other games I'd get for the X1 would be Watch Dogs, BF4 and maybe AC4, Ghosts & FIFA which are third party games available elsewhere

Yeah can't wait for BF4, I'll probably get Ghosts too purely because I'm better at COD, and it's more pick up and play

Personally I'd go for the X1 and trade it in next year when the ps4 has drive club, the order and plenty of multi plats. Trade in prices will hold well for the first 6-9 months.

If you have lots of friends on the Sony system that you play online with, then that's a different matter entirely.

This is what I'm going to do. Just saw on Twitter that the Driveclub rumours were true and it's been delayed, so Forza will do for me!

Sell your pre order!

I'm sure there will be plenty of desperate parents who thought they could just pop in to any shop and buy pushy Johnny his next gen console for Christmas.

I honestly have more than enough still to play this current gen. In fact I find it hard to believe that anyone is really that finished with this gen they need to rush out and buy any of the launch products?!

I mean it's not really looking like you have that much to play now ...
