PSXE Poll Update: Non-PS4 Owners Have Their Reasons

Most PSXE readers own a PlayStation 4. We get that.

But a lot of you still don't and we wanted to know why. What's stopping you? Price? Lack of games?

Well, according to the results of the latest poll, it's a combination of both. Just about the same number of participants cited lack of money and lack of games, which sounds about right. Even though the PS4 is "only" $400, that's still pricey for some people, and let's not forget that that's just the entry fee. You still have to add the cost of games, accessories, peripherals and PlayStation Plus (if you want it). And with a lack of PS4 exclusives out there right now, we can understand the "no games I really need" argument, too.

This week, do you plan on getting Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor? The game is getting rave reviews and it just might be one of the best titles of 2014...

I'm waiting on a special themed PS4. The white one was nice, but I want one that is literally specially designed via the company or something. Than I shall buy my 2nd PS4.

No more Assassins Creed for me. Shadows of Mordor reminds me way too much of Assassins creed so its out of the question. The game does look awesome however, and it certainly is pretty.

Waiting for Christmas-ish. By that time PS Vita TV will be out for my region (I just like the comfort of a non-import product) and hopefully Guilty Gear Xrd which is the fight game I want.

S0 -> lack of games for meh.

I bought one at launch and wish there were more games, but even more wish Sony would re-add the media features the PS3 had that the PS4 should have had 10 months ago.

Bought one 2 months ago, and loving the purchase so far. I guess I'm not into the exclusivity-hype (yet), as I am primarily a MMO-type of player. I have FFXIV:ARR and DC Universe Online... but currently hooked on Destiny. And, yes, definitely getting LoTR:SoM for my single player needs!

for me it's ther price.. there are some games out and on the way for PS4 that I wanna play.. but $400 is too much for me right now.. why pay $400 for a new consoles and another $60 for a game when i can just pay $50-$60 for a great game on PS3 righ now.. i will get a PS4 at some point when the price drops but not yet.

Won't get LotR unfortunately. There are other games I'm saving my money for.

It wasn't the lack of exclusives that made me tick that box. It was the lack of games - period.

Things will be different once the stuff from BioWare, Ubisoft, CD Projekt Red and so forth starts rolling in.

If it was backward compatible with PS3 it would've been a day one purchase. As it is right now, I have a huge backlog of games I need to finish on PS3 and there are franchises I want to play that I haven't even got into yet...
The lack of media support and forced PSN+ also keeps me away. Uncharted 4 or whatever else ND or QD comes up with might sway me finally, but not before the end of next year.

Owned the PS4 right out of the gate but there has been a lack of games I need to play.

Shadow of Mordor is digitally preorderd and, in my book, is one of the games I need to play this year. the First being Watchdogs but that didn't really pan out (it was ok). Second being Destiny and I'm still having fun with that one nearly 50 hrs in but it has highlighted that lack of friends I have and the fun I'm missing out in without said friends.

I bought my PS4 this weekend!!

Shadow of Mordor is the reason. I do not play FPS so there was really nothing on the PS4 that made me want to bite the bullet... then I read about the nemesis system and was hooked! I was waiting for Uncharted 4 or the new batman but Shadow of Mordor looks like the game that got me on the current gen console. Gives me an excuse to get Alien Isolation now too. Reviews on that one please??

I agree with this article. I haven't played any games on the PS4 for almost a month now. In fact, after playing inFamous and PT I plugged in the PS3 and continued playing Skyrim. I bought a PS4 for Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy XV....The same reason I bought a PS3 5 years ago.... Damn you Squeenix!
