The lights are on
Whether you’re planning on upgrading this year or holding off, chances are that you have limited room under your television. Even if your gaming area is expansive, your television has a limited number of HDMI ports.
We want to know how you’ll be handling the console transition. Will you be disconnecting your current-gen systems? If so, are you planning on leaving the past behind and selling off your Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3? Do you expect to be returning to those systems often?
Let us know how you view the new hardware. Do you go all in right away, or to you ease yourself in?

There is too much money invested in my current gen consoles to just get rid of them. No, they will stay until they are are no longer able to be serviced by Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo.
Well, I still have a lot of games that I enjoy playing on the PS3, and since the PS4 is not backwards compatible, it would be stupid for me to abandon my PS3. Like...that would be stupid.
I'm keeping my 360 to play Titanfall and some other games that are Microsoft exclusive and also on that system when I get my PS4. Don't want to miss out on too much, now do I?
I'll be passing my Halo 4 360 to my sister, keeping all my on demand games and data I wont be passing over to the One.
Sure am. My PS3 is the original, fully backwards compatible 60G and my 360 will be how I play Titanfall and watch HBOGo. How much I play on them versus my PS4 though, we'll see, especially with the slew of MMO's hitting the market for next gen.
I'm keeping my Xbox 360, mainly for the Mass Effect Trilogy and Bioshock Infinite
Definitely holding onto mine. Still have a good backlog built up and don't want to ditch them all. I'll only be getting 2 launch titles for PS4, so I'm sure there'll be a lull between those and the next must-haves in 2014. That'll be filled with finishing older titles.
I have been asking myself this very question for a while. I mean sure, I still have all of these games to play on my 360 but I hardly ever went back to my original Xbox games when I got the 360. I feel like if I hold on to my current console, it won't get used as much as it should and if I sell it that gives me more money for next gen games. But if I sell it and I do ever feel like going back I'm screwed.
Yep, have made the mistake multiple times of selling older consoles won't do it again.
