It has been 7 years since the ps3/xb360/wii thread. 7 years!!!

So what's on your horizon?

Cheers

Xbox One on pre order.

My 360 is a ye olde pre HDMI hairdryer fan model. The 120GB hard drive I have on it is nearly full.
My PS3 is quite happy with a big hard drive and a load of PS+ freebies to play.
I can keep the PS3 for GT6, GT7 on the PS4 is years away
Forza 5

It'll be much easier if you just comply.

Problem is, there's no acceptable shorthand. Xbox was just Xbox, Xbox 360 was 360, and Xbox One is what....Xbox again? Just One? Booooo

Leaning towards Sony, solely on their ability to count.

Yup, I game on PC (and on the Mac when possible, which it usually is for the strategy games I spend way too much time on). Don't think I will be getting a console at this point, the setup I have with the PC connected to the iMac is working quite well, even if I have to overclock the CPU to make it work with modern games.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

A mate bought one, played the one game he was interested in (Lego City) and sold it

It'll be much easier if you just comply.

Not really, he works at Game so bought it on staff discount, not full price.

I game exclusively on my Mac right now (SC2), unless you also count my phone. Xbox One could end up in my living room for my GF (she's mildly interested in the workout games via Kinect). If I get a PS4 it would only be to play the exclusive titles (Ratchet & Clank).

Besides a collector mate of mine, you are the only other person that I have heard of that bought a Vita.

How is it? What games do you play on it?

==========

In other news, I wanted to get Fable 3 on PC from Amazon UK delivered to France. Not allowed. Dishonoured and some other older games, no problem. Fable 3 UK Edition from Amazon FR is 4 times the price. ****ers.

Just call it an xbox and be done with it. I'm sure they want you to call it "the one" but no thank you. I mean, with the PS2 and 3, calling it the playstation was still acceptable, right?

In a few years, we can call it just Xbox (and that's probably the reason MS gave it that silly name) but for now we still need to make sure we're talking about "the new one". Should we call it X1, perhaps?

Calling it Xbox or Playstation is fine when it is the only model in rotation, but when there will be new gen and old gen discussions going on at the same time differentiating between playstations is going to be significantly less annoying.

I love it. Soul Sacrifice, Gravity Rush, and Earth Defense Force as what I'm currently playing. I am beta testing Killzone Mercenary too, and that is VERY impressive. It's like a console on the go. Party chat works really well for Earth Defense Force as I play 3 player co-op and can just chat without a headset at home since the mic is built in. There is even Skype which I've actually done a few business meetings on, and you can even do while gaming. I can play PSP games some PS1 games. Since I have PS+ I get the instant games for it as well as my PS3.

In short I love the little sucker and it get's a lot of use.

Yes. i5 2500K, fanless GT430, GT650ti seem to be coming down in price, so I may pick one up soon. Really enjoying Borderlands 2 right now.

I'd rather call it the X1 than the XBone. Anything is better than XBone.

PS4. Used to be a Xbox/Nintendo guy, but loved my PS3 and the choice is obvious.
