If you buy a PS4 don't forget to also buy the Shadow of the Beast remake when it's available.

Ive pre-ordered the PS4 but the new shadow of the beast does not look like having any gameplay that feels SOFTB but who knows I might give it a try :)

I think I'll go for a PS4 this time around.  I haven't had a PSX since the first one (PS1->DreamCast->XBOX->360) but I don't really like the direction that MS is going in with this whole integrated Cable TV/voice-controlled/arm-waving crap.

I'm in no rush though, I'm still happy with my 360 so I'll probably wait till next year to upgrade.

It's a shame Google/Android haven't managed to step-up with a decent alternative, and let's not even talk about the Wii U :)

I have a Wii U, I'm good. Am patiently awaiting VR head sets and Half-Life 3 for Linux. :)

Think I'll skip this round of consoles this time seeing as theyre both low end x86 boxes anyway.

The weak hardware in them should make pc versions stand out, even if the software is just straight ports.
Granted the exclusive titles will mostly remain exclusive, but these arent as common as they once were due to cost of developing an AAA title.
For my tastes there's just not much interesting in "new" gaming systems that are heavily outclassed by a midspec gaming pc.
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

I'll admit, I'm kind of with Fishy on this.
Better graphics engines, but frankly I'm not sure that the machines are all that much of an upgrade.
Probably easier to code for, but then that is hardly a consumer's concern.

Heck, now that they are cheap, I might just buy an XBOX360 to hack around with and experiment with homebrew software.
I'd consider that with a PS3, but Sony really skimped on the XDR memory in that console.

Its a pity no one has documentation for the XBOX CPU, there are a ton of them available now, but they are useless except as repair parts.

Well I ordered my PS 4 :D I do not regret it a bit. I sold my xBox 360 and bought me a PS 4 :D I am going to have so much fun with it hehehe!!

PCs don't hold the same appeal to me for gaming.

All seems a bit too fiddly.

I prefer something I can just use.

I will wait (a few years probably:)) with a new console until I can play backup games. Original games cost a week salary where I live.

I buy the PS4 mostly because I enjoy RPG's on a gamepad in my sofa on my big TV. My main Workstation is a high-end PC and I play some on it also, but I myself do not care much for graphics as long as there is good gameplay so I don't mind to play the same game on PC and console even tho the PC version is superior in graphics.

Even tho it's possible to play with a gamepad on PC the game menus/invetory etc are not made for a gamepad and controlling a mouse with a thumb stick is nothing I enjoy, so consoles and PC has use for me.

Well the appeal to the developers, I guess, is that its easier to port to a PC rather than more specialized hardware.

If I am ever going to get me another console, it will be the Wii U, but I havent used my Wii in ages, well a couple of years any way.

An Amiga forum is probably not he best place to lecture someone about piracy.

There always seemed to be more homebrew for the PS3 than xbox 360 and it's generally easier to hack (as long as the PS3 hasn't had it's firmware updated past 3.55)
