    First, polls always suffer when there are too many options, because it doesn't help to see a trend. Senators are also just asked yay or nay and not 5 different in betweens.

    Second, PC is irrelevant here. I assume everyone here HAS a PC and at least sometimes used it for gaming. So the question of interest and the ideal poll would look like this

    - XBOX one

    - PS4

    - both

     

    You also need no "none" option, because if you want to know if people prefer Pepsi or Coke, people who don't even drink Cola don't matter in such a poll. Sorry if it sounds harsh or berating. But too many polls these days.

    And before you re-rant: I am a Social Scientist. I have a university degree in poll making! =P

    Thank god for me... no wait that is taken. Damn.



    You actually think there's a poll on these forums that's somehow meaningful and which will lead to actual insight into what people are thinking? Really?

    As stated in the OP, "PC" means people are going to buy a new PC rather than any console. If people want it to, it can mean, "Sticking with PC". Whatevs. Again, it's a forum poll, don't get too excited about it.

    "Muffins" is the "Other, none and everything else" option. However, since we're in a forum, if the answer a person wants isn't in the poll, people have the option of stating their opinion. Which is (shhhhhh, don't tell anyone) the entire point of this thread existing in the first place.

     

    Sigh... ah yes the good old nihilism argument. "Nothing has meaning". Yes probably that is true, but at least I have some fun coming to this forum and PRETENDING it has meaning while I am here. At least here as I gamer I would want to know, do you buy XBOX One or PS4 now? Because it is much more clarifying if you force people to decide that allowing them a jack of all trades... ohhh I cant decide because I am a princess can I haz all pls... Seriously. We are adults. We are MEN. We are GAMERS. Make a frigging decision. Yes or No. =P

    They are both blue-ray players.

    It's not nihilism. The answer just isn't in the polls because they are forum polls. We don't even know if it's real people or bots answering the poll. The real answers, if there are any, are in the thread itself.

    Anyway, the answer is buy a PS4 and upgrade your PC if you want. Also, bake some muffins. When you're done with the muffins, make some real polls someplace and ask us to answer them.

    I apparently did make a real poll. Go figure.

    I will be building a new PC in the coming months.

    I won't be buying an Xbox1.

    I might buy a PS4....eventually. Just got my PS3 last year.

    I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

    I am pretty happy with Sony's stance, exclusives, and other factors. However, I will most likely pickup a new gaming PC (most likely not another Alienware box, Dell support blows) as well as a Xbox1 to play Halo / Titanfall with my nephews.

    Im leaning toward continuing with my PC and 'maybe' getting a PS4 for my big screen....not sure...since I am a graphics whore, I always lean toward PC because almost never are the graphics better than on a high end PC.

    Im fine with my PC and WiiU.  I was so disappointed that they rebranded FF versus 13 into FF 15.  I dont get why people are so happy about that.  So instead of having FF versus 13 and ff15, everyone is fine with taking out 15 and just releasing one of em.

    The WiiU eh?

    I thought this interview was fairly good in terms of the 'hard questions' being asked (and lets face it, every WiiU owner is asking something along these lines anyway) and Reggie doing his best to acknowledge that 'hey, there aren't any games on the WiiU but we are working on fixing that'.

    PS4 + PC. 

     

    I will have fun sitting on the sofa with family playing TESO and many other games. 

  • EvelknievelEvelknievel Ehrenfeld, PAPosts: 2,977Member
    Will stick to my PC, however if I was forced to choose to get a console, then it would be the PS4 this time around.
  • fivorothfivoroth LondonPosts: 3,667Member Uncommon
    MMOs going to consoles will not affect their depth in any way. MMOs are already dumbed down beyond belief. I seriously doubt console players are any different to PC players. PC players are too arrogant and have this need to claim superiority over console players when in fact their beloved PC games re just as dumbed down lol.

    PC + my WiiU is enough for me.

    It will always be PC for me. I mostly play MMO's and frankly there aren't enough of them that I like that will be on console. I can also upgrade for the price of some of these consoles to have a better gaming experience via sound, graphics, etc.

    I've owned several xbox's ( one xbox and 2 xbox 360's)  which at some point failed after repairs and my PS3 is nothing more than a blue-ray and Netflix player at this point.

    All my opinions are just that..opinions. If you like my opinions..coolness.If you dont like my opinion....I really dont care.

    90% of stuff I do and play I do it on PC. I like to build my PC and upgrade it every now and then. If I buy another console it will be PS4 as I like Capcom :P

     

    SRSLY FPS, RPG and MMO is PC priority and you XBOX wannabes go home :D

    One day I went outside. Graphics were amazing but the gameplay was horrible.

  • KyleranKyleran Tampa, FLPosts: 20,010Member Uncommon
    I don't play games on a controller, so I will be sticking to just a PC as I always have.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.
