Ya my friend has a nexus 7 and we have developed for it already. But that cost him €200 I think. OUYA is €100 cheaper than that.Being a student still that 100 can mean a lot.

 

Yea, that's a crappy position to be in. Personally I'd recommend penny pinching and trying to save up for the nexus though. It's more expensive, but it's also a lot more useful. With a bluetooth keyboard and a stylus you could replace most of your school related things (notebooks, laptop, some text books, etc) on top of having a development tablet with the same specs and platform as the Ouya.

 

Thats actually a good point. I would be getting the development possibilities plus all the other functions that come with the nexus while the ouya only gives me the gaming side. The little I have used of the nexus I have really liked.

Keep the toys: I will be enjoying adult hardware and game controllers - thank you very much!  laugh.png

 

^^^^ This! I build my own pc every 2-3 years with the top stuff on the market. On my pc i can play almost everything that interests me and if i really need a controller i can just connect a 360 controller. Also if somehow my Graphics card or something else is too crappy for a game i want to play i can just switch the part out and don't have to buy a new system. Also in most cases the graphics on pc are better and the games can be modded to be even more fun (best example: The Elder Scrolls series). Who needs consoles? :)

Not really impressed with the consoles, but at the same time I've been so disheartened by the lack of support for PC, so I don't know if I'll buy a console, stick to PC or just find another hobby dry.png

Actually, in every major category there is more than enough support for PC. 

 

You just need to look for that support.  Often it is a only few minutes to an hour of searching to discover world class PC support for almost anything.

 

Remember:  Research is the intellectual backbone of game development.


Personal life and your private thoughts always effect your career. Research is the intellectual backbone of game development and the first order. Version Control is crucial for full management of applications and software.  The better the workflow pipeline, then the greater the potential output for a quality game.  Completing projects is the last but finest order.

If so, I'd buy a upcoming Steam Box with a Oculus Rift headset.

Think I'll just be sticking with my PC. I was pretty excited for the release of the OUYA, but it looks like it's going to be a colossal failure. As much fun as it is to play vidya with people over the internet I'd still take having a game in front of the TV with actual people by your side over the PC anyday. I wish that my PC could do split screen for ports that it gets from console games so I could just plug it into my TV.

Oculus Rift headset.

 

That's the only worthwhile game product IMO.

The Wii U is finally $300 (for deluxe). That's the way it should have been from the beginning. Though I think Nintendo is missing an opportunity to sell more consoles by phasing out the Basic edition of the Wii U. It doesn't look like it'll be around on September 20 or beyond. Which is ashame as they could have that marketshare pretty to themselves. Assuming the September 20 price drop and Wii U Basic still around, it would have looked like:

  • $200 - Wii
  • $250 - Wii U Basic
  • $300 - Wii U Deluxe
  • $400 - PS4
  • $500 - Xbox X1

 

In any case, I'll definitely be buying a Wii U if GTA 5 is released for it. Although, I'd feel better about buying one, if Tomb Raider and Destiny were released for it as well.

If I have the money, I plan on getting a Wii U and Playstation 4.

i've been seeing commercials for the new Pokemon, and it's seriously tempting me to buy a 3ds.

I'm getting a PS4 and an extra controller to play Madden.

I already have a Wii U and a OUYA. And I'm planning to get a PS4. The XBox One just doesn't have any exclusives to make it worth my time until Halo 5 comes out. The Oculus looks awesome, especially with an Omni treadmill... But I'm kind of waiting until I can get the HD version.

None, because I am a broke college student. Sigh.

 

Also, I usually wait for the second generation models to come out and fix a few bugs. When I do get around to it, it'll probably be the PS4. I'm just not a fan of the direction Microsoft is taking the Xbox. They seem more focused on a general home media device than a game console. This is fine, I guess, save for the fact that the only non-game things I do on any of my consoles are Netflix and YouTube, so as long as there's an app for that, I'm good.

 

That and with more and more titles being cross platform, it doesn't seem to matter much which side you choose in terms of content availability. The only Xbox "exclusive" I've wanted thus far is Titanfall, and there's hinting that might eventually make its way to the PS4 anyway.

After owning an Xbox and a 360, I was a bit disappointed to see the route MS took with the Xbox One. They are getting better after all the flack they got, but I'm still not sold on it. On the other hand, after spending the last two generations bitching about the playstation, they basically told me exactly what I want to hear. I'm still on the fence if I even need a console at all these days (after just spending a bunch of cash upgrading my pc), but if I decide to get a console a few years down the line so far the PS4 is looking mighty nice.

 

Either that or I just get an Oculus Rift, get hooked on the mega-net and never come back again.
