The lights are on
In issue 239, we asked readers what game would make them buy a next-gen system. The results were surprising, with Kingdom Hearts 3 winning in a landslide. Here are some of the responses.

Another Uncharted would be sweet, but an epic Final Fantasy, preferably Versus XIII, would be my golden incentive for a next-gen console. I'm thankful that at least Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain is, at least for now, current-gen for my wallet's sake, but if it was next-gen, that'd be my number 2.
For the WiiU it is a new Zelda game.
PS4 it would be The Last Guardian or GOW 4
Xbox A new IP shooter not Halo.
Fallout 4 or Mass Effect 4 would make me buy a PS4.
Right now I am waiting until the next gen dust settles a little bit. All these rumors about more 3rd party exclusives than the current gen, DRM, and closed vs open publishing platforms have me wary of early adoption. I want to see how things are falling out in terms of software for 2014 before I commit.
I have a WiiU. I bought it early because I thought I could get Pikmin 3 by end of Q1. Ugh. Still fun though.
I have already decided to get a next gen console, but I would love to see a new Bethesda developed RPG. I am excited to see what new IPs come out.
I think I already said this but a new LOD game would make me buy any console (of course it has to be at least as good as the original back in the day).
That seems like more of an indication of the people who read your magazine, the die hard KH fan base is small but ravenous
Well the big game changers for me have to be nintendo's games and I already bought a wii u assuming that they will come out later in the console's life span.
Top games wanted
1. Smash bros 4. Ive been a huge fan and the original is my all time favorite game ever just ahead of Twilight princess and Metroid Prime 1 in 3rd
2. A new Metroid. Preferably a continuation of the prime series. Her's for a fantastic retro game
3. Zelda. Cmon just give me an hd realistic zelda. Something like Twilight princess but on new hardware. Just like the demo please
Kingdom Hearts 3. Yup. I know I would because I bought my 3DS for Kingdom Hearts 3d (and Mega Man Legends 3... don't get me started).
What would get me to buy a next generation console? Anything published by NIS America.
I think I speak for everyone when I say Star Wars Battlefront 3.
Almost anything involving a 3 in it would have me sold on a next generation console!
Whatever Naughty Dog puts out.
A new Jak and Daxter game developed by Naughty Dog!!! Make it happen!!! I will work for free to help you guys create that game!!!
Persona 5/ any megaten game, a new Fire Emblem, or a new Tales game and you've got my money. In fact, the primary reason I bought a 3ds was for those very 3 reasons, though Tales of the Abyss wasn't new.
KH3. Im upset that it never came to the ps3 and there for I think Sqaure Enix should put the game on the ps3 and NOT the ps4.It would be a slap to the face to fans to make us buy new hardware that will be insanely expensive. they should do right by the fans and and give us what we've been waiting for. thats why I give huge props to Santa Monica, they put God of War 3 out and it was amzing and I wish square would have done the same for the kh fans but if me having to buy a new console to play a game Ive been waiting for for years I guess so be it and they better not screw us on the HD releases of the games im expecting to get KH2 final mix and BBS finale mix after the release of 1.5
