I feel strongly about the XBox 1. I think Microsoft’s actions at the console’s announcement were inexcusible. I’d never give money to a company that would even think about spying on their customers.

No Xbox 1 here. Ever. We might get a PS4 but at the moment we have no real need. My husband wants to play The Division but it’s coming out on PC, so we’ll get it for that.

@Hyperventilate:  +1, it’ll be PS4 for us, but probably a few months after launch.

@Hyperventilate: FI works for a retail video game store, and is basically of the same opinion. It seems that the majority of the customers feel the same way, too, because while there were something like 700+ preorders for the PS4, they’ve only got 70 for the Xbone.

After the crap they pulled, we are definitely not getting one. (Plus, we don’t have a TV plan and don’t plan to ever have one in our future). DH pre-ordered his PS4 months ago and got it last Friday. He was awesome and sold a bunch of old games on eBay and paid for his PS4 in full doing so. 😀

I’m buying FI a PS4. I usually wouldn’t spend so much (the console with a game here in Aus is about $650!) but he just wants one so bad and it will give him something to do over the Christmas break since I don’t get time off. I can’t wait to give it to him 😀

Wow what a nice FI you are!

DH is getting cologne, an amp, and maybe another music toy or a subscription to the Economist. (That magazine is really expensive!)

I picked up my hubby’s console at midnight, and he’s in love with it already!! He prefers Microsoft to Sony.

@Skittles131:  I refuse to waste money on an XBOX 1. However, I would waste money on a PS4, haha. But we’re waiting until next year when it’s cheaper. We have no real need/want for it right now, considering we have 5 gaming consoles sitting under our TV right now, with more in the closet.

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  uhhhhhg, I’d love a subscription to the Economist! Wanna send one this way for a budding economist/almost holder of an Economics B.A.?! *wink wink* (just kidding, I’ll buy my own, haha).

Hah, he wouldn’t be able to wait all the way to Christmas – he was at the midnight release last night (I was home asleep).

He decided against trading in his 360 for credit towards it, because he doesn’t want to give up his old games, so now it’s chilling in the bedroom acting as the Netflix-machine for me. Yay…

@mrspinesol:  Haha, seriously. It’s crazy how much it costs. He does have a subscription to Bloomberg already though, which he loves and is a lot cheaper. So I’m not sure if I should also get him the Economist. That’s the only reason I haven’t already sent in the form.
