Fellow Webroot Community members - As you may well be aware (I'll remind you anyway), November is unofficially new gaming console month with both heavyweights (Microsoft and Sony) due to release their new-gen machines within the next 1-2 weeks in the US (this Friday, Nov 15 for the PS4 and next Friday, Nov 22 for the Xbox One).
My questions to all of you - are you planning to purchase one of the consoles? If so, which one, and why? What features appeal most to you? What don't you like? What do you still need to see/know before making a decision?
To help out, ARS Technica has put together two very useful articles to help compare. You can read them here...and here. Also, IGN has a list for confirmed PS4 games and confirmed Xbox One games.
So who will you choose this time around...Sony? Microsoft? Or neither? Chime on in! :D

I prefer my Nintendo Company stuff.
I own a 3ds xl and a Wii U now!
I have a nintendo Wii which got boxed up because I got the Wii U (My family gave me most of the cash and I had some saved up for it. So partial Early Christmas.gift!).
There are some good features that would be interesting to see (such as PS Vita hook up finally working, and skype as part of the whole entertainment package) but nothing that really blows the pants off you.
And as an article I recently read pointed out, none of the next gen consoles have the capability to play current gen games... So you'll be forking out megabucks on something that you wont get much out of... Or am I just missing the point here?
Xbox One has a lot of extra entertainment features, but I already have my TV set up the way I like it. And I don't fancy paying an extra $100 for stuff I don't need.
Ultimately, I might buy the PS4 for its power/hi-def options, but I'll probably wait a year until they have more games I like. Sooooooooo sad it's not backwards compatible. A really bad move on Sony's part, imo! If it were backwards compatible, I might be buying it now.
PC and if I'm feeling nostalgic I'll throw out an emulator or go to gog.com and relive my youth...
Atari and NES were my platforms of choice in my pre-PC existence then I met Sid Myer's Civilization and it was on from that...(I'm not counting the Commador64....it was a little of both console/PC :p)
I do see the value for the console if you just want to pick up and game...and if I had to choose I'd choose the XBox...I've never really been a big fan of Sony...
Sorry 12 year old of mine: keep the old Playstation a little bit longer!

I hate it =(
The launch titles aren't that great, I'm waiting for the real next-gen games to release in 2014.
I dont see how people think the Xbox 1 is an upgrade to the 360 the PS4 and Xbox one are very very similar in hardware terms. In fact they are probably the most identical hardware lineups that we have ever seen in opposing consoles.
