I'm leaning toward PS4, since that's where most of the people I currently play with are going. This is the main reason. Where are my friends going?
For me, launch titles and exclusives generally don't influence my purchasing decisions.
Both platforms are pretty solid though and I harbor no animosity toward the Xbox One or its users!
I agree. PS3, 3DS and Wii U all had really weak launch line ups as well, but look at them now. I've always stuck with Playstation over Xbox because of the variety of games their 1st party studios output on a consistent basis.
I think I am gonna wait to decide. I will also wait until the first couple batches have been out the door and the possibility of getting a defective unit is lower. I have had some previous bad luck with a near-launch Xbox 360
Until then I'll stick with my PS3, X360 and Wii U :)
I chose PS4 due to hardware, price, and the fact that I was tired of getting the short end of the stick from Microsoft.
I may get an XBOX One in the future though as there are some exclusives I would like to play.
I'm waiting at least till TGS but will more than likely end up with the PS4. Exclusives aren't as prevalent with the last generation and I think the combo of PS4 + Vita will be hard to beat. Even with XBox's media features there isn't anything grabbing me.
Second screen play on Vita is pretty amazing. I can't wait to see how they advance the tech.
Reviews are giving the Xbone a slight edge, but I know that my exclusives (Gran Turismo, Uncharted, Infamous, etc) are coming, and if the last generation is any indication (see: The Last of Us), I'm not worried.
EDIT: That, and I really want to use that remore play on my Vita!
Why not both :) if you got the dough :)
