I saw people were swarming Gameinformer's thread about the XB360 so I decided to make a seperate, general interest thread. Bite me for being unoriginal.

Which, if any, are you planning on getting and why?

Disclaimer: This isn't a PS3 r0x 360 sux thread, I just wanted to see who was getting what.

PS3 for me, I got the first incarnation of the Playstation, then a PS1, then a PS2, then a slimline. I guess it's just innate fanboyism, but i'm also looking forward to my favorite series' being continued into the next generation: Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy, Tenchu etc...

None for me. I'd rather buy a new PC then buy a next gen console. Though if I had to choose, i'd get a Rev.

PS3. Playstation has always had more games that I liked than Xbox. Xbox usually releases their games on the pc anyway, so I'd feel like I wasted my money if I bought a 360.

Xbox 360 and a Revolution. Of course that might change when everything actually comes out and I can play them and stuff. But as it is right now, 360 and Rev for me.

The Revolution is the one im anticpating the most, but im not some fanboy/fangirl who buys one console and constantly criticize the other and limit themselves to one gaming console as if their's not atleast more the one game you would like to play all 3 of them, so i will be getting a PS3 and possibly a 360 as well, because their will always be game that"ll come out for each of them that ill want enjoy. The only thing is, i might not get them all on launch, but i will get a Rev and PS3 at launch though.

True, I could definatley say the same thing (Halo, Smash Bros) but I can't afford to buy up all three consoles. At the moment I can't even afford the physical space to house them. The PS3 seems to have the vast majority of games i'll be looking forward to, but i'll be around my friends house when he gets his Revolution to play around with that controller.

Well my brother and I currently "share" the gamecube, so getting the revolution first is a must (NEED new Super Smash Brothers), but I plan to get my own personal PS3 for my birthday.

I'm looking to get my hands on both the PS3 and the Revolution (ideally). I'm not sure that I could, at this point in time, decide between those two, so I'd try to plan for both being included in my pseudo-budget.

Same.

I opted out of the console wars long ago, though I owe most of my video game roots to Nintendo.

I'm going to try and get all three. Most looking forward to the 360 at the moment though, mainly because of the news of PS3 being delayed. I'll no doubt change my mind once release gets closer though.

Revo and PS3 probably. I won't buy them as soon as they're released, I'm going to wait and see what they bring first.

I'm not really interested in the XB360. It lacks good, unique game series like Metal Gear, etc. That's why I prefer the PS3 and Revo.
