Microsoft Most powerful console available. The Xbox is doing well on its homecourt, but on the road sales aren't dominating.

Are you buying the next-Xbox this fall?

Major Nelson is already teasing E3 even though it's still a half year away.

I'm pretty sure that means Microsoft is ready to announce something big at this year's E3. And it doesn't take a genius to assume it's their next generation Xbox.

So without knowing anything about the next Xbox, will you buy one this year?

If so, what's the most you're willing to pay? I'm assuming the console will be around $400, not sure if I'd pay more than that. But I'm 98% sure that I'll be buying one at launch.

If they announce at this year's E3 you think they'll release this year?

Yes, they announced the 360 a few weeks before E3 and launched it the same year.

Also, this.

Agreed, but a lot of it will depend on what games will be offered at launch.

Not on Day 1. Usually when a system launches they take advantage of the demand by forcing large package deals. I doubt I would be able to walk out of there with just a console, controller and game. It is fine by me though, I will just work on my backlog of games as they work out all the launch bugs and possibly reduce the price.

I'm looking forward to the next generation of consoles. Like molsonmuscle said, things have been a bit stale. There's still great games coming out (Halo 4 being the latest one I've played), but it's definitely time for new hardware. I will more than likely get the next Xbox this year, though I'm not 100% sure I'll go out and get it on launch day. We'll see. I stood in line for the original Xbox, but waited close to a year with the 360... though that was for financial reasons.

Personally, I'd like to buy a new console... but if the 360 is any indication, there will be a TON of special/limited edition/bundle consoles available W/I 3-4 years anyhow. LOL!

I'm more or less done with gaming. I've got an incredible backlog that I'll never get to if I buy additional consoles.

I've never bought a console @ launch, don't plan to this time either. There's no solid info on the next-gen consoles AFAIK so I can't say whether or not I would eventually want the next XBOX.

The thing that would really get me back into console gaming is if another developer made a good football game, which might be more likely now that the NCAA license isn't exclusive. I'm not really getting my hopes up on that one though.

I hear ya... I only play about 2-4 games max at any given time so I'm not sure if I even NEED a new console. I REALLY enjoy the NBA 2K franchise so if I'm going to continue rolling with it, I'm definitely going to want to try it on the new system.
