Neither.

Well, a Nintendo 2DS. Does that count?

Actually you do, what you didn't need is for it to allow multiple selections. Poll is kind of meaningless as is.

Well I did the multiple selections to get rid of the both option, but then left it in.

I'm sure one of our fine mods will fix it.

Too early. I don't think anything has substantially changed since the 180, unless some folks were swayed by a headset.

Also, I think each progressing poll until the late Oct hype buildup will have smaller numbers and will skew increasingly toward Xbox, as the preponderance of regulars here are very much 360 guys.

In the big scheme of things, I think it boils down to this: A significant portion of the 77M 360 users will switch to PS4, and very few of the 77M PS3 users will switch to XBOne.

Poll is broken...not sure if a mod could even fix it, unless they can manually change votes.

Suggest locking this one and trying again, keeping the "both" but without the multiple choice.

Have both on preorder. 99% sure I cancel ps4. They won me over with their E3, but MS won me back. I hate having to pay more for xbox, but I figure I would ultimately buy Kinect anyway, so it is basically a wash.

XO all the way. When you think of PC games - you think Microsoft and DirectX.

The XO is essentially a PC, from a hardware and software perspective. Plus this will tie in to the HUGE Windows ecosystem.

Kinect has much more powerful and looks like it's being integrated well for gaming and non-gaming.

It's really a no-brainer.

The XO isn't just a gaming console... it's the whole entertainment centre.
