Thursday Chat, October 10


We are probably opening up a can of worms here, but with the next generation is a month away, we want to know have got your order sorted? Did you get the bundle you want or did you go for a solo console?

Which console did you buy? Xbox One or PS4? What games or accessories did you purchase?

Let's not turn this into a moaning match about you order, let's just chat about what you ordered, what you're excited about and anything else you can think about on this topic.

Let's Chat!

Still waiting on some games announced before I order. But technically I got my next gen console sorted when it was released last year. Or technically 2 years back when the 3ds was released.

I could only realistically afford one, and so I opted for PS4. This mostly hinging on the fact my friends who are also buying next gen at launch are PS fans. I will eventually pick up the X-One but not for a year or so. I had ordered the console solo, with two games (Killzone and BF4) and a camera. However, I got offered the mega bundle and with an extra controller being something I wanted, if not affordable, so I opted for. Otherwise, I was happy enough to get them all solo.

Waiting for a decent line up of games before I make a purchase, maybe in a year or so. In the meantime I have my Wii U, which has plenty of awesome next gen games already, and plenty more coming.

I managed to get everything I wanted. I was lucky enough to get a Killzone Mega Bundle and I've also ordered Watch Dogs and Battlefield 4. I have to say though, I'm quite looking forward to getting a go of some of the F2P games.

might cancel my xbone, yet there is to many backward steps going on with it at the moment, i personally dont think its ready, PS4 is ready but im an xbox fan, got a feeling with all this back peddling going on it could mess the system and create a new RROD or simlar..... very unsure what to do yet

I am gonna wait until Demon's Souls 2 is announced for PS4. Or at least something of a similar caliber.

I've got a PS4 mega bundle ordered with Watch Dogs, ACIV and Infamous: SS. Rather like Kaysar, I will also get an XBone at some point. Getting a standard PS4 for my mate, because I'm nice like that and he can't afford one.

Being an "Old Age Playstationer" there was only one choice, the PS4 Mega Bundle it is for me, plus BF4 and Watchdogs. I figure it is best to be covered so that I can game with my community chums.

My Xbox One and games is paid for now, can't believe it's just over 6 weeks away :-) .. As for PS4, well my son is getting one on launch so at least I can get to try it before deciding, my main concern with Sony is have they improved their Network? if in the months after release I hear some good feedback about it I'll have no hesitation in picking one up, the only problem I'd have then is convincing the wife why I need both next gen consoles! ... So now it's just a matter of making the games I have now last until 22nd November, I might have to have a look in the Bargain/Sale section on Shopto to see if I can grab a few cheap titles I've missed.

My next gen preorder basket is: Xbox One Console, Play and Charge Kit with Controller, Watch Dogs Dedsec Edition and Zoo Tycoon. I've paid off everything except the console because kind of want to use my ShopTo points against it so can't prepay :P Had the console preordered since E3 though so I should be in a good spot in the preorder queue. I will probably get a PS4 in a year or two, or when there are exclusives I want. Right now the only Playstation 4 game I am interested in is Yakuza Ishin and that is coming out on PS3 too so there isn't any point in me getting a PS4 until there are exclusive games I want to play.

Still can't decide whether to cancel my Xbox pre-order and just stick with PC for now. I wish DR3 was coming out on PC.

My next gen stuff is Xbox one day one with fifa 14, assassins creed black flag, battlefield 4, call of duty ghosts, dead rising 3, forza 5. So far I’ve only paid for the console put give me 2-3 weeks and all my games will be paid for too. im a quite annoyed about the whole headset/adaptor problem as i don’t want to buy another headset (im happy with my astro a40s 2013 edition) and the turtle beaches xo fours and xo sevens just look cheap and nasty, id rather buy the chat adopter but I can’t find a price, picture or release date for the adopter so makes me think that microsoft and turtle beach will release the headsets first and then a few weeks later or maybe even months later release the xbox one chat adopter which would be utter bullshit.

I'm getting the PS4 with Watchdogs bundle ( would swap to the Mega Bundle if I'm lucky enough to get the opportunity), Killzone , Battlefield 4, Knack and COD ghosts. Debating about getting PS4 camera, but I want to see more of it before I make my mind up.

The training program will make EV Training less of a chore but what I want to know is if there is a way to look at the IVs in game

Ive pre-ordered my PS4 from you guys in June. Ive pre-ordered the camera and extra controller from Gamestop as they had a good deal this week. I haven't pre-ordered games, they're too expensive and will come down in price. Im going to stock up on psn credit for some of the indie ps4 downloadable titles, thats what i'm looking forward to playing. Next year brings some amazing ps4 titles like infamous which will def be worth buying, i also want to play putty squad, been waiting years for that, won't show capabilities off for the console but for nostalgia its going to be brilliant. I did nearly cancel the pre-order as it is a lot of money but i do use it and play with it so over the years its good value.
