    Update - New info added to article to include all releases for 2013:

    Also note, the 'Razer Edge' is being released.

    I'll probably just stick with the PS4 if I don't see any real alternative adoption from the masses.

    Vote in the poll. You can make more than one selection.

    [ HyRax1 edit: Added "XBox One" to the poll by request. ]

    Ouya, Gamestick, Wikipad, Nvidia shield - not interested (and in the case of ouya and gamestick, cheap rubbish), if I wanted to play android/iOS type games I play them on my phone. Sure there are some awesome games but if I'm gonna play a full on FPS I want my computer, if I'm gonna play something like pokemon/mario/zelda handheld I want a real handheld console like a 3DS which has far better gaming attributes.

    Steambox - already have a gaming PC so not interested

    Playstation 4 - will probably buy one and then rarely use it just like my Ps3 lol. Only use it for propriety titles or things like sport/racing which I prefer on console over PC.

    Razer edge - Nope, already got a macbook retina with windows 8 for mobile PC gaming. Macbook has better graphics card, significantly better CPU, significantly better screen, etc. Don't see the point in getting a tablet instead unless I desperately needed better portability (which I don't)

    I'm not telling
    is there anything definite on the new xbox as yet? I thought with the PS4 being released this year microsoft would be in on the party as well.

    AND..

    This seems a bummer...

    Though this comment at the bottom, "The title says it IS real, but the article suggests that is just PROBABLY is, not confirmed. This article has a very misleading title, it's all still speculation" makes sense.

    I don't see the point of all these new consoles, its just market over saturation all but like 1 or 2 will just die pretty quickly. I hate mobile games as it is i cant imagine paying for a dedicated gaming machine for them. They're just something quick to play when your waiting around. I keep hearing in the news how Nintendo etc's biggest competition is mobile games like iPhone etc, and i cant help but laugh every time.

    Only one i might get is a PS4.

    It's just capitalism at work. The ones that best satisfy actual consumer demand will succeed and have babies, and the rest will inexorably forge their way to bankruptcy.
