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!
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.
