As the title says really. There's obviously a lot of people keen to get it as soon as it comes out but also a lot of people saying its best to wait a while so any issues can be ironed out. At what point are you thinking it would be a good time to buy the ps4, excluding those buying one on launch day?

The choice of games at launch are fairly limited, in quality and numbers it would seem. The most appealing ones are available on the ps3 anyway so there seems little point in retiring the ps3 on a games ground just yet.

It's also highly unlikely the cost is going to come down till atleast after a year.

Is there a particular time people are planning to buy one? Is their purchase waiting on a particular game? Or is there something else people are waiting for first?

I have a pre order for Destiny and Watchdogs.
Looking to pick up a 2 player game like FIFA 14 some time in the future, maybe 2nd hand
Diablo when it comes out
Order 1888 also interests me
And Infamous 2nd Son

I'm interested to see what supply and demand is like in the run up to xmas. With xmas only a month away and people paying stupid money for pre-order deposits you'd think supply would be tight. Can't see this happening however.

I'm also interested to see how well the used games hold their value.

Watchdogs has the potential to make me buy a ps4 but I feel like i'm still missing another big game. Maybe when uncharted or a possible fallout gets a release date i maybe sold on getting a PS4.

Probably in 12 - 18 months time.

Before I jump into the next generation I want:

More games to be available and game prices to have started been discounted for older games.
Any reliability issues to have been sorted.
To play the fairly large backlog of current generation games I own or want to buy.
Media Server playback to have been enabled.

A price cut would also be nice but I wont hold my breath for that the way sales are currently going.

I don't really have a timeframe, I've already got the cash set aside so I just plan to get one if I see one in stock somewhere local.

If thats day 1 then cool but if I have to wait a few weeks or even months then im also cool with that as im not really in any big rush, Still plenty of current-gen stuff left to play.

As and when a game I actually want to play comes out for it, and not until.

Regards

Mark

Just an up date. I might now wait until early next year. I still think PS3 is incredible. Plus there will more games to choose from and hoping the launch titles are cheaper then.

Around the time Uncharted 4 lands, maybe when the launch date is confirmed then I'll take the plunge.
