So we all know AC4 comes out for current gen October 29th and November 1st depending on where you live. ( this only applies to Xbox 360 and PS3 owners ) But lets say Xbox One and the PS4 come out on November 21st, will you wait those days to buy it for next gen so you can wait for the best experience? Or will you buy both current and next gen? I really need to know what people think so im leaving a poll with different scenarios. This also could apply to many other games that are releasing in the October - December time frame.

I'm just going to get it next gen prob right at or after christmas. Grand theft auto 5 comes out late september and Batman: Arkham Origins comes out a few days before AC4 current gen release so I'll be playing both of those to keep me occupied for a while. I won't have time to play a bunch this fall anyways so I might as well use that xmas bonus towards a ps4 and grab AC4 and watchdogs at the same time.

Too many cool new things are going into the next gen version for me to be impatient and get the regular one. No WAY I am missing the opportunity.

So you're asking a question if we are going to buy current gen but you don't include an option of being a current gen version only? Don't automatically assume that everyone will buy next gen consoles.

It depends. I got into a bunch of 3DS giveaways on Tumblr, so if I win one (or if my girlfriend does), then that means I can save up that money for an HDTV which I would need if I got a PS4, and I'd wait for a nice bundle next year with a game that interests me for the PS4 and get AC4 which probably will have lower price by that point. But if I don't get the 3DS in one of those giveaways, then the HDTV will have to wait, which means no PS4 until later on so I'd rather not wait even longer for it and I'd get it for my Xbox 360. So yeah, there's that.

People who are not able enough to pay $550 for a console+ no less than 200 $ on games for something that is for all intents and purposes purely a luxury item of no practical benefit, but entertainment.

All kidding aside, I don't know the exact specs, but I assume that the new consoles will be roughly on par with your average gaming computer at the mo. Where PC wins is the ability to upgrade far more frequently (as the new tech becomes available), or even piecemeal, which can be cheaper in the short term then replacing the whole rig.

As for prices, it depends on what you want to run. Have a poke around Toshiba or Alienware's sites to get some ideas.

Probably current gen, unless $400 fall into my lap/hand right now. Or if I somehow I become as patient as a monk then I'll delay playing the game till I can afford a ps4.

projectpat06
06-22-2013, 06:21 AM
Even if you would work a minimum wage job for just $20 a week for a month during the summer, you would have more than enough for a ps4 plus the game. Just a note for some of the kids on here. Never feel you're above working a crap job.

It would be nice for playstation to do a holiday bundle to kick off the ps4. They do have a good bit of marketing done with ubisoft to include watchdogs or AC4 in a bundle. Or maybe we'll see infamous come with it after the holidays

whaa whaaa whaaaat!? And that's a direct translation over into US Dollars!? That's crazy! How much is the xbox one for you guys then?

because games are about $65 for me so ... about $70 for you. (In AU Dollars using a conversion chart) I didn't know they were that freakkin expensive. Then again. from what I've hear jobs work differently over there as well.

I spoke to an Australian once online -- so this could be false is it true that when working what you make is based on age? and that min. wage there is $14?

No, I have friends that get only $8-10 an hour from Subway, Hungry Jacks (Burger King) but they're only 16 so I'm not 100% sure. Also the Xbone is $599 here.

While the console itself isn't region locked, the warranty is pretty much liable for the region you bought it from (you buy it from Amazon US, you get a US warranty that doesn't work in Egypt). Let's not also forget shipping which would be horribly long if you don't want to pay half the price of the console in shipping, also don't forget the inevitable mishandling which can damage the console badly.

Ahhh... I didn't think about the warranty issue. Well yes shipping was be a little bit of a wait but I think it would be worth saving a $100 or so if there weren't other issues to worry about! ahh... thank you on the insight though! I didn't know about this. The only thing I've ever bought from far away was china, but shipping was free. Me actually shipping something went as far as Canada. That's not saying much since it's within my own continent.

I'm as yet undecided about next-gen at the moment, because I am not, as a college student, rich. I could easily scrape up the money if I picked up some more hours, but I'm not sure I want to spend my money on a new console yet.

But I voted "yes if it's only a 1-2 week delay", because if I do decide to get a PS4, I don't want to wait a month to play AC4.
