For the first time in years I am really having trouble deciding on which of the new consoles to get. Usually I am pretty decisive, but so far I have been back and forth on this and am still not satisfied.

I did have a PS4 pre-order, but then saw Dead Rising 3 was exclusive to Xbox One and a launch title, so swapped my pre-order over. But now I am starting to see a lot of new videos on how good Remote Play could turn out to be and as I have a VIta I am back to bloody square one.

I know I am on the Xbox One board, but I really am looking for sound advice as tbh this will be my last "big" purchase for a while (Christmas baby on way = no more moniez).

So which do you think has the most potential, and add to that which do you think will get the best support? I am not interested in the Wii U as an option, as I have had one of those and sold it not long after.

Cheers for input. Really :)

Will be posting this on PS4 forum too in the hope of getting a good mix of answers between the two boards.

My advice (and what I plan to do) is wait a couple of months and see what people think about all aspects of the consoles. I'm currently leaning towards Xbox One because of the games and services.

Like bessy said, just wait.

Even though I am really excited to get my hands on DR3, BF4, AC4, Ryse, Zoo Tycoon, NFS: Rivals, and Killzone.

I'm not getting either one at launch, I'm waiting till around Christmas to see what everyone has been saying from launch till then, how they both perform, what the prices are like just after Christmas.

I'm getting an X1 first though, there is only one game for the PS4 that I want that will actually be out. After that, I will get a PS4, not sure when, but I will get one.

I agree, it is good advice. I will try and hold off, but tbh if I don't get one before Christmas I am a bit buggered as after that my gf could easily spend my console money on the new baby and I would just have to suck it up lol

Go with the Xbox. If you don't like it, i'm sure you can sell it for a good price
3DO is still the best console of all time.

Go with the system that has the exclusives you want. If you want power, pc is the only.option.

Make a list of the games that you are interested in, and pick the list that you like most.
The big question is, will you be able to afford time to play games or Remote Play games?
