As title, which system you are getting, or not & why. Note that you can pick more than one choice.

Anyway, I voted to wait out & leaning PS5. I can get Xbox exclusive like Fable via PC.

i forgot ro add I may upgrade my pc, & al ost certain 4K monitor. I need it to test User Interface at various setting up to 4K.
for those unfamiliar. User interface, unlike 3D assets, do not auto scale to resolution, similar to website, and I cannot test any resolution above 1080p at the moment.

I'm not 100% decided, but probably pretty close.

Xbox Series X on launch day. PS5 probably not on launch day but I definitely plan on getting one at some point. Upgrading my PC is something that is in my future plans, although my PC is ok for now.

Although to be honest I could see myself throwing a PS5 preorder on Amazon just to see and just keeping it too.

For all the platform warz stuff I'll definitely have Xbox/PS and an upgraded PC eventually. I think they all offer great gaming options, and there's far too many games I love spread across various platforms so I just end up getting them all. I still play games regularly on all 3 platforms.

I tell myself I'm gonna get an Xbox Series X on launch, but I hate buying big things like that because I get immediate buyer's remorse lol. I guess the good thing though is I'll have the entire Xbox One library at my disposal, so it's not like I'll only be able to play new games.

Makes it a no brainer for me. I mean, A lot of those games will play better too.

Pffft I wish, but it’s for science it’ll be discounted and written of on my taxes
When I was a kid & wanted a flashy new $2000 PC to play warcraft 3, I told my dad it was for research purposes.

Getting SX at launch. Getting a PS5 if and when I retire (not likely) so I'd have time for it.

Maybe both, but probably Xbox first and PS5 later.

I’m a little worried about Covid leading to more hardware issues than normal

frick, didn’t even think about that....may wait to open the box and see if there’s issues, especially with whatever heat issues the ps5 may have

I'm not too worried about hardware stability. I think everyone learned from the red ring of death. I'm more worried about supply and availability.

As of now I'm going to hold off. That could change of course once the systems are out and I see how much better they are. I'm more likely to get an Xbox right now as that is what I play the most. I really hate the PS5 being white so I'm going to wait as long as possible to see if there is a black version at some point. If I don't get either I may just upgrade the GPU in my PC and stick to PC versions of Xbox games.

Not a bad idea. The other worry I have is if I wait until later will GameStop still be open to trade in my old console? I feel like they aren’t going to make it through the next gen.
