Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Where is the "no not yet" option? I'm a huge gamer, but I don't have the money for a new console yet.

I'm a PC/Nintendo Gamer.... which is obviously the best type.

For the price of the new consoles, you can get a half-decent game PC. Not top-end by any means, but jeeze, it does PC things, too. And it will play your old PC games, all the way back to Windows XP and even some older ones in compatibility mode. They are expandable; Not getting the frame rates you need? Install a video card, RAM. Install a bigger HDD, etc. I spent more for my PC, but it's top-shelf, and I like the PC version of most games better than the consoles.

I opted to wait on the PS4. I'll pick it up whenever the new Uncharted comes out and hopefully the other interesting looking games have dropped in price.

Still too busy wreaking havoc in GTAV.

PS4 was announced two weeks after I bought my PS3 so I will be holding here for a while.

This should have been checkboxes instead of radio buttons. PS4 and WiiU here, if that counts.

Xbox One here. Very happy so far. Wish I could rename it Jarvis though.


Nothing follows.

How about a "Not Yet" choice.

Same here, Xbox One, PS4, and WiiU. My husband and I decided to splurge this year.

Totally- I build my own PCs and get the crazy multiplatform games for it, while having a WiiU for the living room so I can play the marios and zeldas (and pikmins!)

Right...or just a simple No.

I have a NEW xBox 360--it's not the xBox One--but it is new and the kids will still love it.

Not yet, but I keep hoping I'll win one from somewhere! Here's to hoping!

I just got a new PS3 a month or two ago! :D So definitely won't be getting one of the new consoles for a while.

Typically I'm a PC gamer, so that's what I voted for.

Definitely need the "No. I'm too cheap to buy the Wii U until it's under $200"

Hehe, I'm waiting for Uncharted, as well. :3 I'm hoping they'll have one of those system+game bundles they usually have with really popular games. ESPECIALLY hoping the system will also be game-themed! :D

Not a huge gamer (working through the FIFA 2011 I got for Christmas last year on my Wii right now) so waiting for the price to drop on the options the shiny new consoles are replacing so I can have some fun and add a BluRay player to the family electronics mix on the relative cheap.

totally agree. just cause I haven't a new one yet doesn't mean I must be either PC Gamer or non-gamer

PC Gaming forever. After I build a new tower, I will probably end up getting a PS4 at some point.

Yeah but the X-box one can play your games, movies, and music all from the same device! If only computers hadn't been doing that since the 90s..................

Too soon?

My thought has always been that you're going to have a home computer anyway. So after paying the difference to upgrade it to a decent gaming computer and you're about at a console.

Where is the, "Nope, because I'm happy with my current consoles" option? :P
