    Default I think I am checking out of next-gen gaming.

    I have already sold my PS3 and Xbox 360. All my future gaming will probably be done on my PC. Emulation for most of the major systems has got to the point where I can plug in an OEM controller using a USB adapter and not really tell the difference that I'm not playing on original hardware.

    Between Steam for the ocational indie game, emulation, and my Wii U for my Zelda fix the next generation is not something I want to be a part of. Closing out used games, always on cameras, etc. No thanks.

    You and me both buddy. I have 100% no interest in what the television is doing so all the attention towards TV is turning me off like finding a pubic hair in your ham sandwich that your grandma made... PS4 is not important and my PS3 still does the job just fine. also with indieseoul around i can now get emulators to work on just about anything so my gaming needs are met. the only difference is i wouldnt touch a Wii U with a shi**y stick and Zelda is best left to my fiancee. i wonder how many folks around here will be getting an upgrade when the festive season rolls around.

    (Mostly) the same here. Not interested in X-Box one, PS4. Sold my Vita, 3dS, and PS3. My only modern gaming is now done on Steam. I'm in the middle of building a PC solely for Steam use, hooked to my TV, which will be my main "next-gen" rig (with the bonus of playing all my old school PC and emulated stuff as well). I have a 10 inch fairly modern tablet (tegra two) and a nice, high powered android phone (dual core 1.56 ghz snapdragon), and finally my Pandora.

    That is my exact setup. I highly recommend USB adapters for all your retro controllers really helps make emulation feel really authentic. For like 60-80 bucks you can get adapters that will hook up pretty much anything you can think of

    Brilliant image.

    I can understand the feeling by everyone but it's too early to make a decision. I feel content with my Wii, PS3, PSP and 3DS. But there will come a time that one of the new machines will entice me and I will have it. And as always it wont be the hardware that makes a difference but it will be a game that absolutely must be played.

    I've always been excited by the next generation machines and have pre-ordered / purchased most since I was able to afford to do so (probably the 1st gen PS1), but my interest has been waning recently and I can't remember the last time I turned on my 360 for myself rather than for my kids. This latest batch of consoles is a big turn off for me at the moment, especially with the crap Microsoft are implementing to restrict selling on games / always connected etc. Maybe they'll be more attractive closer to the day, but seriously, how many more FPS games do you need to play?

    So I think I am going to concentrate on the enormous back catalog of games available in the retro scene, at the moment I have a ZX Spectrum that is giving me hours of fun - I can't believe how many good games I missed from back in the day..
