Who is getting which new console then? After much deliberation I've gone for the Xbox One. Not keen on all the Kinect voice activated shit though!

Feel free to add me "Skitzo 1980".

(I've sold my PS3 again so currently just playing Xbox 360).

I won't be indulging just yet but if I had my pick, it's deffo the PS4!

Even though Sony have been wankers in the past and I've never fully forgiven them for taking away the 'free' games after 30 days that we got for the downtime after the major server hack, the PS4 definitely looks the better console out of the two.

I'm still running my 500gb big box PS3 and a recently RROD'ed 360 Pro.

I'm going for the PS4 but probably leave it until well into 2014 to be honest.

I have stacks of PS3 and 360 games so no rush to jump on the next generation bandwagon too soon. (Well, until the temptation become too much!)

I'm "zyclonium" on PSN, XBL, Steam, Origin.etc.etc. (everything just about). Please feel free to add me if you would like.

I can't wait.. I want my hands on Forza 5 and Battlefield 4!!! :-) Not bothered about other games just yet, still tired of COD so I might give this next one a miss.

I'm also trying to wean myself off the consoles and onto Visual C++ more...






..Saying that, I bought Saints Row 4 today!

Once a gamer always a gamer :-)

Saints Row 1, 2 and 3 were great - wasn't impressed with the superpowers and futuristic look of the new one. Let me know if it's up to much!

Played an hour or so of Saints Row 4 now and the superpowers aren't as bad as I thought.. It's basically like Crackdown.

I'm not a huge fan of either machine. Neither are particularly sexy to look at, nor do they have any killer games that make me want to buy them. A few (predictable) sequels that only really offer better visuals and that's it.

I'd rather go retro and play games like The Floor Is Jelly, as seen near the end of this video:

Outerlands - Season 1 - Short - Rich Vreeland is Disasterpeace


FYI: From the few clips I have seen of Outerlands, the documentary is awesome :)
