Typically, we usually say a multi-console approach is best for ultimate gaming greatness.

But as a generation goes on, many gamers find themselves sort of honing in on one particular console and for PSXE readers, that machine is the PlayStation 3. Perhaps surprisingly, the vast majority of our readers say they only own a PS3; a much smaller percentage own multiple systems like the PS3 and Xbox 360 and PS3 and Wii. Of course, as we are a PlayStation-centric site, the PS3 was bound to be the most popular console but we kind of thought there were more multi-console owners out there. At the same time, if we examine all the pros and cons and check out the available libraries…well, we can't say we blame the majority. The PS3 really does feel like the top-tier gaming machine these days.

The week before, we wanted to know what you thought about Catherine . Well, August's biggest release is arguably Deus Ex: Human Revolution so what do you think about that one? Are you one of those die-hard Deus Ex followers who will buy it regardless of critical acclaim? Are you a newcomer to the series and if so, are you curious, or are you indifferent? Let us know.

With Deus Ex I'm choosing the second one. While I think it'll be great, I can stand to wait for a review or two before buying.

I'm wondering about Bodycount. Can't tell if it's gonna end up like Brink or actually be a good game.

If I were a betting women, and I am, I'd bet on it not being good. 😉

The media blackout on Bodycount has me worried. I thought it might be good, but now I'm thinking that it might have been good a year ago. Now it'll be average.

So I'm not crazy? Media blackouts DO usually precede bad stuff? Damnit Ben you made me think I was paranoid.

Now put that same PS3/Wii/Xbox poll on something like IGN and I assume that number would be fairly different. As for Eus Ex: Human Revolution…hardly interesed as I know nothing about this series, need to do some research now

Simple fact is I'd love to buy a new game but my mother keeps a watchful eye on my online purchases.

Apparently to her a Cyborg V3 gaming mouse isn't a necessity. Pfft. I mean what's that all about?

Do you have your own saving account yet? Gotta get yourself into Paypal, then buy what you want with whatever money you can finagle.

LOL oh man that mouse looks awesome, Mell! I totally see why you'd call that one a necessity. 😀

The Cyborg series equipment has an awsome design to them, those keyboards are like xmas trees :D. *Real* eyecandy for grown up boys. 🙂

But when it comes to actual usage, I think noone beats the gaming mouses from Logitech. They *look* boring, sure, but oh man what a precision and durability. You own one *forever*, they just keep going.

That's the one thing about the Rat that's so great. It's fully customizable in every way from the grips, rests, weight, buttons, and laser precision to fit your every need. Just an awesome mouse in every way. Logitechs are great as well, I just could never really find one that felt comfortable for me.

Will look into paypal, I did consider it a while back but really wasn't sure.

@Beamboom, I know, how could I resist?
@Geobaldi, haha I did look at that mighty fine mouse but the other was on sale. Was pretty tempting though.

The poll was flawed. You needed to find out how many also had 360s until they decided to stop replacing it.

As far as Deus Ex goes, I'm interested but I it's feeling like a price drop game for me. Gotta save a little cash for WKC2 and Dead Island in September. Those can't wait.

I have never tried any deus ex games but the little i have seen so far intrigues me. If the reviews are good i'll try it when the price drops because there are too many good games coming out.

This is one of those rare times I voted negatively. I just don't think it'll be what it's supposed to be.

Call it intuition… SE… whatever you want.

I share your worries there, Underdog.
Ever since I saw those plastic faces with animated lips that moved like some doll faces in that promo video a while back my instincts tell me I should read multiple reviews before deciding on this one.

I know, Claire, but I've seen lots of previews. I threw in that SE thing for comedic value.

It isn't -because- SE is involved that I think it won't be what it's supposed to be. (Not saying it'll be bad, just that it won't be as awesome as it's supposedly supposed to be) But the SE brand doesn't make me hope against hope is all I'm saying. (Like if it looked bad and you saw Naughty Dog or Sucker Punch on the label, you'd think, naw, it'll be great by launch… You know what I mean?)

Deus Ex is in my top 3 list of games to get this year. Its only Deus Ex, BF3, and UC3 for me this year. Going to college soon so I won't have enough money for more then about 3 games I assume. I just loved the previous Deus Ex games and this one should be great too!!!.

Not surprised by the poll result… I guess there are just not many people with that kind of money to spend on all 3 console platforms with vigor.

In the end… you go with what you think is the best choice at the time. The same choice may not always be the best in the future. Companies and products have cycles… you can't hit on winners all the time.

However, the PlayStation brand – and what it stands for – is synonymous with quality and a healthy pyramid of exclusives to the platform; this will know doubt keep Sony at the forefront of gaming even though I do so risks ahead as the gaming landscape changes radically.

When a company like Apple have more cash on hand than the US government, it tells you something. Apple hasn't even begun yet to flex its muscle in the gaming space… wait and watch when they do.

Whatever happens, M$ and Sony will try to raise their games, or at least try to keep their lead as best as they can; but it can't be denied, the landscape generally is looking different than it was during the PS2 era (as far as Sony goes anyhow), so we will have to see how these markets pan out for the 3 big hitters and then some…

Apple in one corner – the others in the other corner… someone eventually has got to be the winner… I wonder who that will be.

One thing we all know… is that it is always about the games, the software and the experienced offered during play and remembered there after… once in a captivating world it is gamers bliss… and gamers want to be in bliss, all the time…

Q!

In the last poll, I voted all three systems, plus a few dozen more ;-).

This poll for DE, D1P if I can find the extra moola for it, cause these unemployment checks just aren't cutting it.

Ooh, Deus Ex is sounding more and more awesome every time that I hear about it. And for good bloody reason too. I really do want to get it Day 1, but Dead Island and Resistance are my priorities, and then I'm all booked out until the new year in terms of games to buy. :'(

Ah well, second option it is.

I have never played a Deus Ex game but it looks fantastic and since there have been no games I have wanted since L.A. Noire, I have it pre-ordered. It also helps that there is nothing else coming out that I want until Dark Souls…

I'm mostly using my PSP, PS3, and DS. The wii just collects dust until a new Metroid, Zelda, or Smash Bros. comes around.

Although I do have a Halo night at my friend's house. Looking forward to new maps for Reach aa well as the Halo anniversary in the Fall.

I've had PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP. Loved them all! PS2 broke down but the PS1 still works fine, hah. Each of the systems has an incredible library of games. Getting new systems is great, but just playing all the great PS1 games would take forever. You really can't run out with PlayStation.

I also have a GBA – the GB, GBC, and GBA libraries are also really good.

My dad also bought a Wii. I don't have many games for it but I think it's turned out to be a fine system. I'm not sold on the motion controls but games like Twilight Princess, Metroid Prime 3, Tatsunokou vs. Capcom, etc, make it worth it.
