    I so don't need to get one (or ps4) until a lot later next year, but I do keep looking at the shopto bundles! if I do go for it, which I really shouldn't, but if I do it will be the Ryse bundle.

    It's a play on gremlins 2, deal with it.

    Whose pre-ordered an Xbox One for launch day or who intends to buy one after launch when the next container shipments arrive?

    It's like Xbox 360 time all over, I remember playing Call of Duty and PGR at launch. Remember the days of literally everyone buying the arcade games for something new to play on the console. Exciting times. New console!!!
    I remember it well because my first EG post was asking where I could get a 360 on launch!

    Won't be getting a next gen console unfortunately. I'd love to have a play but it would just sit unused under the telly, and I have to spend my money a bit more wisely these days.

    Ah to be 23 again

    I make MrTom seem like a kid, I'm recently divorced and I'm spending my money on whatever the fuck I like! Day One, BF4, Forza & Ryse all pre-ordered!

    (PS4 also pre-ordered but may get put on hold)

    I'm knocking on 40 and have Day one & BF4 ordered. Probably get CoD for the first time in a while and maybe Watchdogs and Ryse if they review well too.

    Titanfall and the possiblity of Crackdown 3 broke my resolve in the end. I may regret the lack of Planetside2 & Warthunder by ruling out the PS4 for now.... unless I eventually treat my son to one a few years down the line. ;)

    I have never ever bought any computer or console at launch before, but obviously have more money than sense these days. :-P

    If money is tight, why the fuck are you spending 570 on toys???
    Maybe that's why money is tight.

    I've got both consoles on pre order. Had the PS4 down first despite being a long time xbox fan - specifically for Forza in recent years. I really want to be a one console guy this gen despite owning both every gen since the SNES.

    Unlike the internet, my reason for PS4 was primarily the graphics whore in me. I really don't care what policies MS had up their sleeves at E3 - honestly I wanted digital only this gen. I'm digital only on my Vita, iPad, and iPhone/Android already. I rarely trade or buy used games. The original E3 message was a selling point for me as was Forza at launch. The only thing holding me back is a fear that the PS4s extra GPU oomph is going to make the grass greener.

    However, I've been edging ever closer to the XB1. I like the look of Titanfall and have no intention of buying a PC to play it. I prefer Forza to GT. I'm not a huge Killzone fan. I like but don't love the infamous series. I did love The Last of Us. Bottom line, specs ignored, XB has the games I want to play. If Forza were not a launch title I'd be buying the PS4 without second thought though.

    So. I'm in a dilemma that probably won't resolve itself until November. For 57 extra via shopto give or take - you get FIFA plus Kinect vs PS4 bundle. That's really not a bad deal surely.

    For the record. Pre Orders...

    PS4, Watchdogs, Battlefield, Killzone - Shopto Bundle - 493 + 12 months PSN - 540

    XB1, Watchdogs, Battlefield, Forza, FIFA, 12 months Gold - 597

    I'm only buying the console with fifa 14 and the other games will come slowly the weeks following = money is tight..

    Only buying the basic 429 pack to start with. I wish i could afford to blow 570 on toys !! plus i got away with telling the mrs its for the young lad lol.

    My wife probably spent more on Lush over the last two years than 430, so I feel I can justify it.

    Got a Day One edition reserved but I'm still not sure really - I've got a big backlog of games currently and all the games I'm most looking forward to this year are current gen or cross-gen.

    Having said that I love the hype of a launch console, and there's a lot of games that look good early next year and it would be nice to have the cost of buying the console out of the way.

    Also have a PS4 on pre-order but I missed the guaranteed launch cutoff by a few days and I don't think I want one for a few years anyway.

    Still on the fence about whether to cancel my PS4 order, or to eBay it.

    Approaching 37 here. Just spent another 40 on msp today to put my xbl credit up to 260. Great getting points cheap to fund going all digital. Potentially lethal for me though as purchases are just a button press away so have to try and restrain myself from impulsive buys.

    Definite purchases are dead rising 3 and forza 5.

    How are you getting your points cheap if you don't mind me asking?

    @dunny

    Well I say cheap. I actually mean cheaper then the rrp. Basically just putting adverts on hotukdeals. Ive managed to bag a few 4200 msp for 25-26. These convert to just over 36 credit so basically getting a tenner extra on each one.

    So far ive spent about 170 on points and have just under 260 credit.

    Technically, doesn't this net you Driveclub and Resogun too?

    Edit:

    And a load of stuff for your Vita too it would seem. Be crazy not to take advantage of the 2 system link up and all those goodies you'll get for PSN+.

    Mine is due up this week and I'm not sure if I'm gonna renew it. Most of the games I've had of it I've completed or got bored of and after November or when we get the xbone I can't see me using my ps3 for a long while.
