    Will you buy the PS4 or the XBOX ONE?

    My answer from the same question asked two days ago:

    "Neither, but if I had to I'd be leaning more torwards the PS4. Even though the X1 has made huge changes to accommodate today's generation of gamers and reverse the effects of their bad public relations, I'm still put off by the fact that they thought of these ideas. If they were such wallies then, can you imagine what other disastrous choices they would make in the future? I don't want to risk £500-600 on something that might happen later on.

    The PS4 isn't without faults though. I'm still a PS1-2 gamer and neither of those platforms can be played without downloading games on the console. I know they won't make hardware changes just for me, but Sony have given me one less reason to get the console.

    Neither of them have given me a single title that would make me get the console. Perhaps a single Call of Duty game, but "perhaps" is not enough. I want to be able to have at least three games upon the console's release, and still make the £500 or so worth it, and three games won't be enough. Sorry to say but I can't justify the price tag for the little either console does for me. If anything, I'm considering getting a Wii U, and I'm often outspoken about Nintendo's practices. I look forward to seeing what other people are getting and why, so I'll be following this question ^^"

    The only thing that has changed since then is that I'm certainly getting a Wii U sometime soon for its impressive titles and finally some more involvement from 3rd parties (because Nintendo were doing *such* a good job on their own before). It's innovations are far more aesthetically and technologically impressive, as opposed to the multimedia box Microsoft are building and the PS4 which I've no idea what is bringing new to the table.

      I'm not a huge fan of the PS4, and even though Microsoft came out with all those outrageous policies, since they have gotten rid of them I will be getting the XBOX One. I'm highly disappointed with Nintendo since the GameCube.
