I've had both the PS4 and Xbox One on preorder since they were available for such. Why? I do not know. If I had to give a reason, I'd say it's because I haven't bought anything "new" gaming related in quite some time. I've had my GTX690 since May 2012 and my 3930k since June 2012, so PC gaming (hardware wise) has become stale for me. Need something new to play with!

I'll probably focus on airmiles again and use them to get one, same as I did for the ps3.

since ciniva protection come to ps3 i have had a htpc on the cheap and kept the ps3 just for blue rays and exclusives such as "God Of War 3" but that was like 3 years ago now since i last used it.

I think this time around instead of a ps4 i may just put a better video-card into the htpc and upgrade it to gaming capable instead of just movie/tv/netflix capable, ill still have the ps3 to play bluerays regardless.

And then ill have a place to play all them Racing/flying games when they go on sale for 5$ on steam.

I got an xbox 360 free from telus a few years back. used it maybe 3 or 4 times in a year and a half then gave it away to a low income family with 2 young boys for christmas last year. I won't buy any console.

First off, I'm not a fanboy though I do love my pc more than any console, and while I also own a ps3 I only use it when I have a couple hours free during the week. But I find more and more I enjoy reading the posts on reddit like this
http://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace...paper_gets_it/
A word of caution, that section of reddit is almost as much a circle jerk to Gabe Newell as is http://www.reddit.com/r/Gaben/
