PSXE Poll Update: Most Don't Need A New Console This Year

The holidays are here and we wanted to know if you planned on unwrapping a new game console.

As it turns out, a fair portion of our readers said they'd probably get a PlayStation 4 as a holiday gift in our recent poll, but most said they won't be getting a console this year.

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One both launched a little over a year ago, and the Wii U has been around for over two years. Most core gamers have what they want by now, but there are always plenty of consumers who wait until a console boasts plenty of software they actually intend to buy. Looking back, you can't really fault the latter group for waiting a year, as neither the PS4 nor Xbox One really impressed in their first years at market.

This week, what did you think of the PlayStation Experience? Was it everything you expected and then some? Was it good but not mind-boggling? So-So? Let us know.

I would have wished I waited to get the 20th anniversary PS4 with Far Cry 4. That would have been ideal.

It was awful, there was like nothing on the level the public expected. Even the obvious must-show games were a no show. What a troll job.

I don't expect one and I didn't ask Santa yet, but a new shiny Wii U would be awesome.

The Experience was atrocious, self indulgent pap. But let's face it, Sony knows their fans will wrap themselves in the mediocrity and defend to the death against anyone who dares to shed light on it. "But but but.... theres another day!" Since that was a bust, I guess the next supposed day of PS4's will imposition through exclusives is... GDC? lol. Abd how about that SF5 reveal? 2018? Give me a break. I guess thats in line with Sony's reveals like Agent and The Last Guardian. Keep dangling that carrot for the faithful to hope and make countless excuses for.

Probably would have been better to actually be there, but yeah, didn't seem like I was missing anything by watching from home. I'm sure I had a better view than most people at the back of that hangar.

Yeah, cause what you see here are Sony fans defending it to death. It's all you see. Nothing else.

I just don't understand why you bother going on like that. Your posts could have been so much more interesting if you didn't do all you could to provoke everyone around you.

For me, the only remarkable were the free games. Everything else was just meh.

The experience was unexperienced in my opinion. Didn't Sony primise us something that will "blow our mind"? I hope it wasn't U4 gameplay because we already new about this title. Of course it was great and I cannot wait for the game, but I hoped for a new good 1 or 2 exclusives announcement.
And haven't I wrote ~1.5 month ago that the hype train would crash? Well it did, at least for me.

of course we do not need a new console, most already have next gen consoles and those who don't don't because theres nothing worth buying them for yet and won't be for another year!

both PSX and VGA are a typical indication of this industry, hype, hype, hype, then they finally come and its total meh!
why does every big event the past few years have to be indie, indie, indie, indie, indie, indie, indie, indie, indie, indie?
last time i checked people don't say x was such a amazing system because of f*cking minecraft!
no they say ps1was such a amazing system because of crash, ps2 was such a amazing system because of GOW, ps3 was such a amazing system for uncharted.
&^%$ ^%$#@#$ indie games!
im all for indie games, there the only chance we ever get to see fresh new ideas, but for f*cks sake enough bringing the suzuki swift to the geneva motor show!
when people are expecting the replacement to the bugatti veyron, the worlds fastest car, and am greeted with some crummy 10000 bus on wheels of course there going to be bitterly disappointed!

and what little that was worth showing, why was most of the reveals just game trailers?
really getting sick of developers announcing their game by showing a completely vague trailer, i mean the whole point of announcing a game is ANNOUNCING IT!
that means showing what it is, i.e. is it a FPS? a racing game? what will it be catered for, planned G release or R?
so many of those trailers revealed pretty much f*ck all about what their games will be about!
this industry turned to sh*t, everything is OMFG, OMFG, OMFG JESUS IS BACK OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
oh wait my mistake..........
once, just ONCE, can we have ONE thing live up to the hype?
JUST ONCE!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

another thing that really pissed my off about PSX, why does $ony ALWAYS have to make it so god dam difficult to watch their presentations?
every single time they just release a live stream on twitch which is f*cking useless because what happens if you start watching 3/4s of the way through a presentation?
just spoils the experience i want to watch from start to end, not 3/4 way to end then wait for the stream to start again from the beginning.
VGA, steam, M$, nintendo, everyone else can provide a recorded stream mere hours after event closure, so why can't one of the worlds oldest largest electronic companies?

perfect example of why i hate $ony, they don't give a flying f*ck about their user experience, and are so f*cking tighta$$ed they refuse to spend a single dime to improve it!
a recorded stream of one of your biggest events for the year, is that so much to ask!?

I must admit, part of me wishes i bought the PS4 a year later. The only games I've enjoyed on it thus far excluding P.T are both remastered ports from last gen, GTAV and TLOU. Most of the big promising titles have either been disappointments or have been littered with bugs. Next year is looking promising though.

Regarding the PlayStation Experience, the showing was pretty average but the Street Fighter V deal was a big scalp and has caused alot of discussion in the forums. The salt and rage happening in some of those cesspool forums at the moment over that announcement is just mind boggling.

I found it very disappointing. The FF7 thing was just alarmingly stupid.

Agreed. I'm not a FF fan myself but even i will admit to that being a gimp move on the dev's behalf. What were they thinking? It wasn't cute.

If they're not going to remake the game then so be it, why not just openly admit it already so the world can move on instead of pulling off gimp stunts that are more likely to divide the crowd instead of uniting them.

Agreed. The crowd's reaction was priceless, though. They started announcing, and people had cell phones out, talking to each other, shuffling in seats... when they said what it really was, they looked as if they'd been trolled. lol

The sucky thing is that they HAVE said they won't do it... but then they've done things like the PS3 tech demo, the twitter question about whether or not people want a remake followed by a site crash, they say IF they do it, it would have to be a rebuild...

They need to just let it die. People criticize fans for not letting it die, but I don't think they can be blamed when the company doesn't already.

I snagged one in the Blsck Friday sales, however the only games I have am remote interest in right now are Watch Dogs & Ground Zeroes. It was more of an investment while it was cheap in prep for 2015. Having played Ground Zeroes I know it was a good call as it looks phenomenal in 1080p 60fps and knowing The Phantom Pain will look that good makes me ever so pleased.

If stupid Nintendo didn't region lock their systems I very likely would have ordered an Australian New 3DS this holiday season. =\

That would be me. I have a friend who went online to bid for PS4. He's a sports fan and thats what he is buying it for.

As for me, I want to see what comes out for early 2015 and I will know better if it time to switch over.

I will be buying a PS4, I just don't have the need right now. The Order and Uncharted 4 may and probably will change that for me when the time comes.

Keep playing!

I'll buy PS4 when Uncharted 4 arrives, as for PS Experience, it was just plain stupid, so much hype and so much disappointment.

Wow what a total snoozefest of a show, it feels like all they showed were pretty much the same games they already showed at E3... Uncharted, The Order, Until Dawn, Grim Fandango, LBP3?? Oh wait isn't that game out already?

U4 looked great as expected, but really not a single new PS first party exclusive?? If they didn't have anything new to show, why'd they even bother doing the event?? And why hype it up like crazy if you're not going to deliver??
