Do You Plan On Getting A New Gaming Platform This Holiday?

The holidays are once again upon us. I know because I just saw that insufferably cute Hershey's Kiss commercial again.

So, are you happy with your current gaming setup or do you want to expand your reach? Thinkin' about getting a new platform of some kind for Christmas? If so, which one?

I'm willing to bet few of you are going to say PlayStation Vita (which is really too bad, but entirely understandable), and the Wii U probably won't be frequently named in the comments below. That's mostly due to the fact that many are waiting on Nintendo's next console, right? Or, maybe you were smitten by something that was revealed recently for the Wii U, I don't know.

Perhaps a few will say they plan to turn their PC into a quality gaming rig, while others will respond to the sudden allure of a few big Xbox One exclusives. While I really don't care about Halo 5: Guardians or Forza 6, I admit I'm a little jealous because Rise of the Tomb Raider landed on Xbox One first. If you're a die-hard Lara fan and you cave under the pressure, I won't blame you. ;)

Or, are you simply satisfied with what you have now?

We're hoping to get a Wii U for the fam this year.

No need for an XO. I decided I'll likely just play TR, as most third-party AAA games, on my PC. When $200 graphics cards can run something like FO4 at 1080p at 60FPS with higher-than-console settings, makes the decision sorta easy for me this gen.

By the way the X360 version of the new TR apparently holds up quite well. Some saying it actually feels more reponsive on X360.

Get the wiiu temjin! It is a great system and you won't regret it. Was actually surprised how much play time that system has gotten from us.

I wouldnt say the RotTR "landed" on the X. More like hijacked.

Anyway, Big IF on getting another console. But if we do it will be a Wii-U. My wife has a soft heart for Mario and the gang. I am trying to hold her off for the NX but no hard release date on the system or even if it will launch with a Mario game makes it difficult to convince her to wait. Would be nice if the WU would drop further in price. It is only a few $20s from the PS4 price but then again, we already have 3 PS4s in my household.

If and When ooVoo hits then I will be purchasing a PS4 for some other family members. My Mom will Love to video conference with the rest of the family. She is 80 but enjoys Need for Speed.

I've only ever had a MS console via gifts or other arrangements. No a dime spent on one. Juat not on tune with MS for many reasons. Dont hate them.. just always had the feeling like they have hidden agendas other than just putting out a great system with great games. Nickle and diming doesn't sit well with me. They've been better lately but not wnough to win me over.

Here's a not so known secret about Microsoft: their hidden agenda is that they're a business trying to make money. Similar to Sony and Nintendo, actually

I want to get a NEW 3DS so I can play Dragon Quest VIII and just to have the new one to replace my older one.

Definitely get a new one Jawknee, it feels so much better. I ended up selling mine after buying a new one. Transferred all my info over then sold it for 150, without games too! So I recouped some of my expenses. Lol

The old one won't play DQ8?

Yea I've been holding out for a new Zelda bundle but I missed the Triforce heros one due to a lack of funds. So I might as well just get the red one.

I think it will play DQVIII but the new one has a faster processor and the graphics look a bit smoother when I tested games like Smash and Majora's Mask. So I want to play DQVIII on the better version of the system.

I've had a PS3 for years now, hadn't jumped into this gen yet.

But now I have a PS4 in the closet waiting to be wrapped (upgraded with a 2TB drive). Got $150 in Sony Rewards credit, and a Vita is under consideration. Hoping to get a couple controllers online on Thanksgiving.

So this year I'm catching up, with the price drop and other deals. Soon I'll be picking up last year's PS4 titles from the bargain bin.

Well, I am certainly upgrading my PS4's hard drive. But as far as new platforms... I may get a Wii U - but only if I find a decent deal. The New 3DS, however, is almost a certainty (despite some of the more lame features it has).

Im upgrading both my harddrives to 2TB this holiday if that counts. Possibly even more storeage for my xbox 1 since i can use a external harddrive on it. Other then that im tempted to get a WiiU this holiday or the 3DS idk yet.

My sister suggested they should "make a new Zelda." I accused her of living under a rock, considering the last Zelda she played was A Link to the Past for SNES. What a nice gift a WiiU or even a DS would be... were I not too poor to unload a few hundred on something like that.

No way, I gots no money! Thanks to Fallout I can wait for Lara to get the extra sexy edition six years from now.

I do have to say that I enjoy my Playstation TV console. It's the size of a credit card and plays lots of Vita games where they belonged to begin with: on TV. My Vita is pretty much just there in case I want to remote play or suddenly have to travel to work for the CIA.

Seriously considering a WiiU.

Only thing holding me back is the fact that I haven't had time to do much gaming at all lately... Gotta make sure it makes sense before I make an emotional purchase.

Just got an Xbone for Rise of the Tom Raider (so many good bundles right now btw).

The game is amazing. It balances the linear story telling/action set pieces with small open world hubs. The bar has been raised for Uncharted 4.

I've had no time for gaming, I'm so far behind, couldn't even think about getting a new console right now.
The last game I purchased and played to completion was Far Cry 4.

What's happening to me!?!

Withdrawal's are such a b*tch that you might as well fall back under it's spell, just for the pure pleasure of being hooked on it once again!!!!!!

Hoping for just a little more time outside of work and college to play more Fallout. That's all I want, and all I need. Maybe some Monster Hunter 4 as well :)

I have no need for one, so no. My backlog is already too big for both the PS4 and X1 so I don't need to add to the pain by adding another console and its games to the mix.
