Switch Presentation Impressions

Same. I got a PS4 last year, and have been playing on it as much as my PC. I feel no urgency to buy a Switch in light of that.

Gamestop actually went through their entire initial shipment already. The few times it did go back in stock, it sold out again in like 5 minutes.

I'm not sure the initial excitement will last long after launch though. It seems driven more by Zelda hype than anything else.

Hearing about the enhanced DS2 re-release made me glad I didn't jump on it right away. Would rather just spend money on one version. I'm honestly more interested in Bloodborne, though, although I doubt I'll be getting a PS4 anytime soon.

I'm 100% going to get a New 3DS soon, though. I might even put down a deposit on one--something I never done for a console or handheld before. Having Smash on the go is too tempting to pass up. Not sure if I'll get the regular one or the XL, though...

I know that feel. Street Fighter V is far and away the most exciting next-gen game I've seen to date, and it's not coming out until next March if the rumors are believed.

Thanks! :)

What are you gonna be playing on this year? Looking to get any new consoles/handhelds? Just curious.

I want to a PSTV, but I've heard there are some compatibility issues that still haven't been addressed with some games and I'd need to buy one of the exorbitantly priced memory cards to hold all my PS1, PSP and Vita games. Either that, or have to constantly delete and redownload things the way I did on my Vita. Really don't know if it's worth the money... *sigh*

As far as the new consoles, I was willing to give Sony and MS more of a pass because it was only the first year. Now is the time when they'll REALLY have to prove the worth of these new boxes--no one has the excuse of their being unknown quantities anymore. I'm expecting to see some magic happen from this point on.

And yeah, it's tough justifying the expense of getting more into PC gaming if you mainly use a laptop. I got a PC for my birthday a few years back that I've been able to upgrade over time--and I've spent more on upgrades than the computer itself already. :p

It's pretty amazing to consider how much better off the Xone's image is compared to last holiday season.

I was right alongside everyone else condemning MS's original vision, and largely wrote the thing off upon launch despite it having Killer Instinct, which was the most enticing next-gen exclusive on any of the three new consoles for me in the first few months. Now, I feel that it's not only just as worthy a purchase as the PS4, but when they were doing all the crazy deals for it it was a much better value IMO. It'll be interesting to see if Sony gets more aggressive about pricing next time around--they're already including TLOU for free in a new bundle announced today, which is bound to eat into the gains the Xbox One AC bundle made.

Thanks! :)

Yeah, I'm likely not going to be getting a new console until late next year, if at all. I'll definitely be getting a New 3DS, but the rest of my gaming money will likely go towards long-overdue upgrades to my computer, as well as real life expenses.

If anything, I'd probably end up getting a WiiU before the other two consoles. The PS4 and Xone have so much overlap with PC in terms of games I want (and already have, in fact), while the WiiU is it's own beast--and cheaper to boot. Of the three new consoles, it would compliment my Steam collection the best.

And no, I have absolutely zero support for Gamergate whatsoever. I've never taken the movement seriously, and they do not speak for me as a gamer at all regardless of their claims to the contrary. If not for all the insanity surrounding it last year I would've just considered 2014 "meh" at worst--I didn't have very high expectations for the year to begin with.
