But, what to buy?
In the past I tended to go for both (i have 2 ps3's, one xbox 360) but I decided Sony is better. (quieter/bluray/no big brick/free online gaming).
One that basis , justified or not, I think I'll wait it out for the PS4 .
billgates: Online gaming is not free anymore with PS4. Xbox One has a Blu-ray drive built in.
Comes down to controller, game exclusives and features preference.
sdav: I will go for the PS4. I have had all of the PS consoles and I like them. I'm not hard core enough to justify two consoles although I will have the PS3 and 4 together for a while since the PS4 is not backwards compatible. I wish there was a away of downloading the games you already own on disc to the PS4 so that you do't have to have two consoles hooked up.
I understand ps4 will not have disc based backward compatibility, but they will be doing something with cloud based backward compatibility I.e. hosting a whole bunch of ps3, ps2 games in the cloud that you can play from your ps4 or vita
Unlikely you will be able to play your old games you already own this way for free, but I'm hoping it will be a subscription type service similar to netflix, but with streaming games instead of movies, and at similar price.
ushare: im saving up for ps4 and ps3 at the moment.
Ive ruled out xbox one already.
Cant wait for GTA V on the PS3 and then ill move over to Ghosts on PS4.
I know CODs getting old, but hey! Its so fun XD
chiefie: Looks like Microsoft has decided to make Xbox One no-region.
If you choose to download your games, you will be able to play them offline just like you do today. Xbox One games will be playable on any Xbox One console -- there will be no regional restrictions.

I honestly don't know why most tech news sites are waking up now. Microsoft announced the region free plan when they reversed the DRM policies in June.If you choose to download your games, you will be able to play them offline just like you do today.
