Granted I was hyped by the next gen console unveil and bought into to hype of pre-ordering.

2 weeks later I pondering and said ''hmmm, none of the launch titles or Q4 titles for that matter garner my interest'' ''I will wait''

I rather wait until Gaikai is fully operational in 2014

I agree, that's why I'm sticking with my PC and I'll pick up a PS4 somewhere in 2014 when I feel like it.

Honestly I'm considering to do the same, too - most of the games that I want are for a console I already own since the end of last year

But then again, when launch comes near.. nobody can escape the hype; so I probably won't do it :lol

So you won't buy a PlayStation 4 until you can play PlayStation 3 games on it?

Why not just keep your PlayStation 3?

I'm probably just going to wait til Infamous Second Son is out and Hohokum.

Although it would be nice to have a PS4 to play with during the holiday season. *shrug*

It's not like the price is going to go down in 6 months, so there is no real benefit to waiting I guess.

it's a smart thing to do... buying consoles at launch is very risky.

DS and Xbox 360 taught me a harsh lesson.

I'll be honest, none of the launch titles interest me either. I'm going to see how some of the PC ports of the 3rd party games end up and if they are on par or better than next-gen then I may not get anything until some good 1st party shit comes out.

Why did you pre-order in the first place? This is why I didn't pre-order, the games I want for those systems don't come out till next year at the least.

I think this is a good idea. You should also wait for the second hardware revision.
That's what I did with the PS3 and it's still working fine.

Honestly, it's cool reading that someone just cancelled their pre-order instead of trying to flip it for a 50% profit on launch day. I hated that shit when I was a kid and couldn't get launch consoles because (seemingly) half of them ended up on eBay at huge markups.

So for that, kudos.

Infamous Second Son (launch window)

Knack ( looks to be a fun platform/puzzle/beat 'em up)

Yea that's enough for me personally. Plus Watch Dogs has a Nov release date so it will be practically a launch title.

Maybe when Destiny or Titanfall comes...

Why not just keep your PlayStation 3?

it's not only about Gaikai,

it's about actual games that would push me to buy a console.

Buying Cross-Gen titles or early Launch titles just to buy a game is not a good reason to make the leap yet unless the game is really desired.

I am hyped about the console itself big time, but not the games

I've never bought a release day console.

I always 1-2 years down the line. By that time, i know what games are good. The console is cheaper. any hardware issues would have died down. and if any anti-consumer practices popped up, they would have either been ironed out by then, or improved.

only time this bit me in the butt is with the ps2 playable ps3.

Don't they usually not announce the launch titles until near launch? I'll keep my preorder and only cancel if there is nothing I want out for it. I'm perfectly happy with my PS3 and the backlog of games that are coming to it. I still haven't touched Ni No Kuni, have Dragon's Crown on Preorder, and want Hatsune Miku and some other games I forgot about lately.

I didn't buy my PS3 until the Slim and pricedrop hit in 2009, and I have no regrets to be honest. Meanwhile my Wii U has hardly been touched since finishing Mario.

Thanks for letting us know, I guess.

I'm in the position where I really want to pre-order a PS4 but just don't have the money. I'll probably have to wait until early 2014.
