With Next-Gen Here, What Are You Going To Do With Your Old Tech?
Now that next-gen (current-gen?) has arrived, what will you be doing with your old tech? Will you be an early adopter or will you wait for the problems to flesh themselves out before you consider buying the new devices?
Fortunately, the Xbox One’s issues should be resolved when the console releases in South Africa (rumoured to be during Q1 of 2014), whereby the PlayStation 4 might see a few problems when launched this December–things we have seen happen internationally. Hopefully not, though.

We have confirmed with the local distribution that Sony’s PlayStation 4 will only have a one-year warranty, the same as the international units. This means that if anything goes wrong–you’d better hope it does so in the first 12 months.
If you are going to adopt the PlayStation 4 at launch, like many are going to, will you sell your old console or are you going to keep it, in case you want to play old games? Azhar is planning to sell his PlayStation 3 along with many remote controls, microphones and games.
Me, personally, I am not sure of an early purchase just yet. However, if I do impulse buy, I doubt that I will sell my 360 and PS3. I feel too attached, and I am a bit of a hoarder. I’ll just keep them around, you never know when you might need a previous-generation door-stop.
What’s your plan? Can you let go? Will you let go?
